Finding the Light

Finding the Light

We’re taught to look for the dramatic light, the “Golden Hour,” whether in the early hours of the day as the sun is about to emerge over the horizon, or the quickly vanishing swath of warm, flattering light just as the sun is setting. Midday to mid-afternoon light is said to be too harsh, creating excessive contrast, […]

Winsome Home No. 1

Winsome Home No. 1

We often step on the brake and turn our head (for a second too long) when a house or garden attracts our attention. Now that we’ve joined the 21st century and own an iPhone, and consequently no longer curse and scold ourselves for forgetting our camera, we have begun to safely pull over to the […]

Bloomin’ Roses

Bloomin’ Roses

From a delicate individual rose with striated white and scarlet petals to luminescent pearl, sun-backed petals, the roses are in bloom. Strolling the neighborhood, we experienced this week’s cool winds carrying mere hints to intense blasts of rose bouquet.                                 […]

Strolling Sierra Madre

Strolling Sierra Madre

We found ourselves with an extra hour to fill while in Sierra Madre. Here is what we saw…                                                                           […]

Is This Spring?

Is This Spring?

With a high today of 87ºF, has summer unofficially arrived? Officially, the vernal equinox marking the first day of spring is Thursday, March 20th, but flip flops, shorts, and tank tops have been the wardrobe of choice as people swarm the outdoors—running, cycling, pushing baby strollers, or heading to the park—with a spring in their […]
