A few weeks ago when I was in a local open space, fire trucks and and ambulances were in the parking lot and along the street. Someone hiking had passed out or had been injured – I never found out the whole story. The park was not closed, so in I went. I heard the noise of a helicopter nearby. Deep in the canyon below came this medivac helicopter, a small craft capable of navigating in narrow canyons. It moved so quickly I was lucky to get this shot.
First, I really enjoy the prickly pear cacti in my neighborhood – that is, as long as I don’t fall into a patch. Their paddle-shaped stems (the thorns are the leaves) often show up heart-shaped, and in season bear beautiful flowers which become the pear. After all our rains, I can hardly wait to see what the trails nearby have to offer.
Thoughts: Fraggie suggested a weekly post on the monthly subject. I will give it a shot for every Monday. That I think I can do without feeling depressed about my project and without feeling pressure from lack of time. My workday yesterday was out of the house at 8:00 a.m. and home at 7:30 p.m. I think you can see why time is not always available!
Well, the fact is, I am way too busy and far too short of time to do this proposed 365 project. So, instead of doing a 365, I am just going to go back to looking at things and taking pictures of what I like. I’ve been quite unhappy with my inability to commit to the project . . . I seldom quit anything I start.
So, here is a tree, which is something I enjoyed photographing very much.
