definitely omnivorous

spring mists overpower the first attempts of new blossoms, but they keep coming

 Getting the focus right is always the challenge with so little depth of field.  Probably because I'm too lazy to pack my tripod . . . or even monopod.


I have to remind myself that to look up . . . in spite of the traffic over the bridge I was on.

behind the discount stores

So I was in Kittery Maine trying to find something at one of their many discount stores.  Got lost turning around in the back lot of one and suddenly saw this. Scenes regularly present themselves that way but I don't always take advantage of them.

last fall's visitor


Never understood what these red balls did, other than be red. Too far apart to be traffic control. Cool though.

soft sea

storm surf

I went to catch the setting light but these guys, diehard surfers, captured my eye.  A few more after then jump...including the setting light.

Beach color

It's called Boar's Head...I think.

Ebb tide

Took me a long time to figure out why my tomatoes were not flourishing...

I only allow color matched birds on my car.
