Recently, I decided to take a walk outside and get some shots of simple subjects. I took this one of my Volkswagen Beetle, and I like the angled view in this image. enjoy!
This was the view from my house shortly after I spotted the smoke column. The winds were gusting from 15-25 mph and the fire started growing at an alarming rate. We were still reeling from a fire the previous week. There were no lives lost and no injuries, thank God, but beloved pets were lost and probably livestock because the fire was burning so fast that people could not reach their homes to get them out. 106 homes were lost and 45 outbuildings so the physical loss is great, but the emotional toll is greater. Some of those had been home to generations of family. There is no replacing all the memories and keepsakes that were lost forever. My heart goes out to all of you. Stay safe my friends.
Red Rock Canyon is a small California State Park that I think can rival many of the wonderful park you find in Utah and Nevada.
Currently I am photographing black and white. I am constantly on the look for contrasty images. I found this used piece of soap on a dirty plate, a perfect contrast.
Topic today: Selfies on the road – There are relatively few photos of me. When I travel, I like to use mirrors for self-portraits. Which always also establish a connection with the respective country or the possibility of a more abstract representation.
Letzte Woche war ich für ein paar Tage in Frankreich unterwegs und habe eine Menge gesehen. In Avignon habe ich dieses sehr schmale Haus entdeckt, dessen Seitenfassade noch eine Überraschung bereit hielt.
Last week I was in France for a few days and saw a lot. In Avignon I discovered this very narrow house, whose side facade still held a surprise.
