MATINS (Posted In Loving Memory of Inger)

"Matins" (in a 2012 folder, or earlier) is shared in loving memory of a friend, Inger, who passed away just a few days ago. I will remember her for many things about her. But most of all how she'd challenge me laughingly to sing old songs with her if I could recall the lyrics. We'd do this singing after dinner, still at the table. Surprisingly, I never wondered how other diners and chatters felt about this soft but definite singing. And not one of our many rather outspoken, opinionated neighbors in this community ever objected. :-)

It's tremendously sad to lose her, but I am grateful she's out of pain.

THE END

"The End" (2013 or earlier) is another re-post, but from my dreams&poetry blog this time. (It may have been posted here at some time, but it's not a common practice of mine to post a pic to both blogs.) This log was (and probably still is) on Stearn's Wharf. I took many pix of it "back in the day" as I found it fascinating. Still do. Sorry 'bout that pun in the pic title. :-) I'd suggest clicking on the image for a larger version, in order to see the details, especially of the log's whorls.

THE LITTLE MERMAID

Re-post: "THE LITTLE MERMAID DREAMS [2012 folder, or earlier] was taken over two years ago [now over 8 years ago] with a loaner camera. I've done extensive cropping and a wee bit of fooling around to soften and brighten the colors. However, this resultant version does pretty much echo what was a beautiful sunset, just before a huge full moon. For those of you familiar with the area, those are the Channel Islands on the horizon, seen from Goleta Beach." Coming across this old pic today reminded me of a quote by Stendahl: Beauty is a promise of happiness. Sigh. Not that my pic is all that beautiful, but it does call up the memory of a sunset that was exceptionally so.

ELFWOOD


"Elfwood" [in a 2012 folder, or earlier] is another in my series of re-posts as I procrastinate about getting my new computer system fully set up for dealing with pix. Well, to be kinder to myself, life's a bit more demanding than usual right now. Yeah, the operative word there is "life," however I am a bit more limited than I have been. (And can only hope it's temporary, and not another "new normal.") But back to this pic: the colors totally seduce me (as I said in my first posting of this photo). I also like how changing from the natural greens and dark shadows brought out the lovely shapes of the leaves.

FRACTIOUS

"Fractious" [in a 2012 folder, or earlier] is another of my personal favorites. It's especially lovely (IMHO) in a large print with wide white borders, that I made of it and will some day hang on a wall in my rooms. This pic was shared here back in 2012. I'm continuing to re-post pix as I still haven't had the mental pizzazz needed to get everything set up for editing and downloading pix again. Hey, I'm an old lady. Gimmee a break! Just turned 75 on the 4th! :-D (Sigh, as I look at this pic now I think I'd like to try lightening those shadows in the upper left corner and see how they look -- once I'm editing pix again on this new computer.)
