I’m not into Halloween as much as I used to be.  But I do like spooky stuff.  Like fog.  Fog is spooky.  And not limited to Halloween.  Where I live fog is a common occurrence.  But fog around this time of year when it’s draped over and around a dark spooky house… now that’s something I can appreciate.  This one lives up in Bellingham, WA.

I was out and about taking photos as I often do and arrived back at my hotel well after dark.  The night clerk saw me with camera attached to tripod and excitedly offered to take me up to the roof so I could get a good unencumbered shot of his current home city.  He was proud, both of the city and of his own little private view, just a bit better than being on ground level.  He could take me there.  He had the key.  It was his to show.  Like a painting he just completed and wanted someone else to see it as well.  Thanks to the night clerk, you can see it too.

I’ve always loved the views from Mt. Constitution.  No matter which way you look, east toward the mainland or west toward the setting sun, it’s almost always spectacular.  On this evening I got out of my car before reaching the top in order to get a good look at Cascade Lake down below and many of the other Islands to mix in with changing colors of the sky.  Of course, no one else was around.  I just parked and took off down the hill when everything mircaulously came together.

Still standing after all these years.  Almost seems like a miracle.  Many of the pyramids in this area of Egypt were either crumbling or in a certain stage of pre-crumble.  But that just seems to make them more interesting and mysterious.  Thus my friend Fort’s sit-down meditation.  Maybe that’s just a way to get inside it.  Get still and quiet enough, internally, to move into the heart of what’s there.  Now that I think about it, he did have a little wry smile and glow when he arrived back at the bus.  Hmmmm?

I love Yosemite.  If you’ve never been, just go.  One mid winters day I got up well before sunrise and drove the 5 hours to the park for a quick overnight and a hike or two.  I’d never been up the Four Mile Trail so that was as good a reason as any to see how far up I could get until running into snow and having to turn back.  Actually, I got almost all the way up to Glacier point before the snow said to stop.  Slowly winding my way back down I stopped to take some time to simply gaze out at El Cap and the beautiful Yosemite Valley down below.  And then the sun came out from behind the cloud bank!  A remarkable place Yosemite is.

Though it’s not your amusement park thrill ride, the new Seattle waterfront ferris wheel is great for viewing both the city and the Puget Sound.  I wish it were more open where you could rock your car back and forth almost to the point of flipping.  But, this wheel’s cars are modern, all glassed in, safe.  Just right for viewing.  Anyway, it’s the NW and its rains a lot.  So, maybe it’s a good thing they’re all closed in?

Yes, it’s autumn and the leaves are turning color and falling.  With so many vineyards around here, it doesn’t take much of a drive to experience the fall colors.  One of my favorite areas is out in the dry creek area of Sonoma county where this was taken.  So many beautiful images to behold.

Savannah is such an easy and fun town to walk around in.  It exudes southern charm with its architecture, large oak trees packed with spanish moss, and numerous “squares”, which is kind of like a small open park taking up a small city block, old cemeteries and churches.  My mother was born there, though she moved away when quite young, and my two sisters and I went back last year to meet some long lost cousins.  Charming, indeed.

Arriving at our camp at Mapungubwe was exhilarating.  The landscape is moon-like, the ground and rock the same color of golden red, and to top it off, there’s the over-lighting presence of the giant baobab trees with trunks seemingly as thick as the the tree is tall.  I would have loved to take a long fading-light walk, but because of the large amounts of elephant dung and tracks and droppings of other unknown animals, we were strongly advised against wandering too far.  The next morning I awoke before dawn to take a few photos.  Though the various animal roars I heard were awesome to hear, they had me staying pretty close to home.

It’s America’s Cup racing time again this week on San Francisco Bay.  It’s a perfect venue for watching these unique sailing vessels skim over the water.  And skim they do.  It’s sure not your grandpa’s kind of sailing.  Sometimes it hardly seems like they’re racing but in actuality they’re moving quite fast.  It really is fun to watch with perfect views out to the boats, bay and iconic SF icons.
