Looking Through the Lens

Having traveled down the coast of California after deleting all my previous photos. I can only offer this view of the coastline. Wild, treacherous, dangerous, yet at the same time the scene stirs a calm in the midst of constant change. One only has to wait for the sunset to experience a feeling of pending renewal for a new day.

This blooming cactus is right outside Uncle Dan's back door.
"Blooms every year," he says. It fades in the sun nd heat of the day.
There is a stability about this place that leads their GD C8 to call it "home." I always find a sense of love and acceptance here.

We visited "Quail Gardens" today and there was not a quail in sight! The arboretum abounds with bright colored flora and little creatures such as this lizard sunning on a convenient rock.

Yellow canes of bamboo glisten through the dark coolness of the arboretum path. I can't complain about the heat when it is 20 degrees cooler than home and a lot less humidity. Besides, there is so little concern about having plans spoiled by rain!
