A lot of construction is going on where I work, and much of it is outside my front door. Bobcats and diggers, plumbers and electricians. Noise. However, it does make for some fun subject matter!

While not of the caliber of “Nude Descending a Staircase,” I find this image intriguing, as well as graphically pleasing in content and contrast. The emptiness around the chair, the movement, and the colors are simple. Purely accidental.

While wandering around Canoga Park last weekend, we went into the local Green Thumb Nursery, which is one of the best nurseries in the area. Plants are endlessly fascinating to me, and this one especially. Kangaroo Paws are odd plants, relatively new (past ten years or so) to this area, I think. Anyway, we wandered throughout the place, taking pictures of flowers and plants and watering cans and so on. I liked the color rendering here, done using Photo Ninja.

One thing that I always find interesting are signs for businesses, whether glitzy neon, or older ones. I don’t know if this one lights up at night, but during the day, it has its own appeal.

There is nothing like exploring a neighborhood on foot. I drive through this area frequently, but wandering around created an intensely more personal experience, and one which was all the more pleasant because of the people I met!
