Sign and detail, Jax Beach.

 By the look of the parking lot, this practice has either moved or closed. The closer I got to the sign, the creepier it felt. An octopus with human teeth...............ughhhhh

Leaves, driveway, Roscoe

I was out in my driveway, taking pictures of leaves on the ground. They were ok but there was too much clutter under them. Finally a light went on and I came inside and got a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper and went back out. It was lovely soft light and I took an hour's worth of portraits of leaves and other backyard stuff. So you may see a lot of these in the next few days.

Three chairs, PVIC

Orange and yellow, Jax Beach

Change is in the air....and it smells like brisket.

Now here is a change. Yogaberry to World of Beef.

Aluminum pan, Jax Beach

Bird recovery, Jax Beach

 I was ending my Sunday walk in Jax Beach when I came upon this little guy. He or she had probably flown into one of the glass store windows. Usually this results in a broken neck and a dead bird. I thought the wind was ruffling it's feathers but there was no wind, so I looked more closely and saw that it was breathing and trying to fly. So I picked it up and held it for a bit until it started cheeping indignantly at me. I put it up high in a bush and it yelled at me a bit more and then flew off.

Now we each have a story to tell.

Leaf, driveway, home. PVB

Autumn always has me looking down. We do have some trees that shed their leaves. The rest lose between 30% and 70% depending on the tree. I find that I see the structure of the leaf much better when it has lost it's color and has dried out a bit.

Leaf, Jax Beach

Another conversion with MacPhun software's Tonality app. The split tone filter is great fun.

Evolution.....or the hot sauce to fish fossil transformation, Jax Beach.

 Four weeks ago on my Sunday walk I came upon this spill. Someone had dropped their bottle of hot sauce ( a tragedy in my opinion) and cleaned up most of the glass and left. I came by last week and it had turned into fossil remains of a prehistoric fish. All of this on a fairly well travelled sidewalk (covered) in a shopping center. Looks like one bicycle tire went through it.

Semi-trailer harness, Jax Beach

Stalker, Jax Beach

They've learned to hide in the shrubbery. Luckily they're colorblind.
