What a great time of the year and what a pristine place to view some of the remaining color that fall so humbly bestows upon us.  It’s a real treat to be able to wander along the roads of the eastern Sierra for just one purpose; observing the beauty of nature’s change of season.  The bright and alive green of summer slowly starts to change and before long becomes a vibrant, intense explosion of yellows and gold’s with just a touch of everlasting green, adding just the right amount of contrast to the road less traveled.  There were not many people traversing this patch of roadway on this day.  That’s just fine with me.  It makes this little stretch of heaven just that much more inviting.

I love the color and character of the older docks, holding their sea warn buildings out of the salt water.  Walking the shore trail in Monterey provides a lot of an older ocean front scene.  It’s easy to find beauty to frame inside a viewfinder.  Just walk, look and dream.

Summertime and the living is colorful.  With flowers.  I go in spurts of buying splashes of color for the yard and garden.  Usually I get the small flats but sometimes I’ll buy seeds and plant in the fall or spring for the promise of color in summer.  Either way, it sure brings a smile out in me.

Thirst quenching.  Fresh.  Fun.  It’s all part of wandering around the colorful Hollywood farmers market street fair.  Yes, there are real live everyday events happening in Hollywood.  Not all glitz and glamour.  Fresh and organic.  Thirst quenching.  It’s just all part of everything in Hollywood.

Yes, it’s beginning to fade, but still it is winter.  At least it is in California.  Is it where you live?  This shot is was taken over my back fence as the sky was going through its early morning color display and the grasses in the field were covered with a deep and persistent frost.  I don’t necessarily like being out in the cold, but the awesome color drew me out this morning.

It’s not from this year, but it certainly gives the impression of winter.  It seems like I should be sad for the rose, but I’m not.  It didn’t quite have enough time to fully blossom when the force of winter took over, and that’s OK.  I like winter too.  It lends a certain air of beauty to the scene, don’t you think.

Do your believe in Voodoo?  Whether you do or not, New Orleans sure congers thoughts and images of voodoo on my end; little old ladies sticking pins in small personalized dolls.  The unsuspecting victim wondering what hit him as he reels in sharp pain.  New Orleans, a perfect place for a voodoo doll shop.  I only wished it was open when I happened to stroll by.  I could use a doll on occasion.

Of course you know I love color.  The richer the better.  When I walked into the Wynn hotel in Las Vegas I felt like a kid in a candy store!  I mean glitz and glitter and glamour and color everywhere my eyes could roam.  I just stood close to the entry door, set my tripod and camera and tried to stay away from anyone official who might notice and tell me that no tripods are allowed.  (I did get that at the Venetian).  Well, no problem!  Vegas seems to have so much substance for a place known for being so shallow.  A cover up?  Or just someplace where the business makes so much money they can afford the enticements?  I don’t gamble, but I do love the enticements. wynn-entry-2-1

I drove up to the end of the road and parked.  I was intending to make it up to the infamous Hollywood Sign, at least most of the way, but it was getting dark and I kept getting distracted by the incredible views of Los Angeles and all the different colors and angles with every step I took.  And then I saw it!  As it was making its way out of the frame, I saw it.  Clearly something alien, and just cruising right over the heart of one of the largest cities in the world!  Do you see it?  There, on the right side of the frame.  Do you believe it?
