Redwood Bark


Last month, I went camping in Prairie Creek Redwoods State Park for a couple of days with Tom and Marc, two other photographers.    I hadn’t been camping in a very long time.  The biggest challenge for me was changing clothes in a backpacking tent.


Big Monet


This was my second time at L’Orangerie.   The first time, I was overawed by the Monets that I didn’t realize that there was much more upstairs.  Oops.  This time, there was a wonderful cubist exhibit.

The guard here had her head down like she was dozing.   There must have been two dozen people pointing their smartphones at the Monets.   Several times, I was photographing people looking at paintings through their smartphones and not looking up.
