End Of November Photos

I was looking back over our old posts recently and noticed that last year I had started posting photos at the end of the month, pics of things that didn't make it into a post. So I thought I might end November on a similar note.

  1. I really like the crepuscular ray shot. Very dramatic. And I absolutely love the fence! That's really cool.

  2. John-- I posted the wet fence on Facebook and asked friends to tell me what they saw. It was wonderfully evocative. Really glad you liked these photos.

    Mark-- I took that crepuscular ray shot when Roger and I were walking home from the market. The light kept changing, it was pretty great. The fence is right outside our sliding door. I kept looking at it and seeing different things, so I thought I should photograph it. Glad you liked it.

  4. Gotta love Grandpa and Luna. How sweet. That face in the fence is amazing. Could be roger. It even appears to be wearing similar glasses.

  5. MandT-- Me too! Aren't they cute!

    Arkansas Patti-- Love how you see the face in the fence. It is really such an interesting Rorschach Test!

  6. nice photos, especially the one with Roger and Luna. He looks a bit like a slim Santa with the specs on his nose! We have a birdfeeder close to our kitchen window in San Jose and we saw 10 birds either partaking or waiting the the right moment to join in. Mostly finches since they have the red markings and some other bird I can't figure out that is much smaller and mostly black with a bit of white. Maybe a sparrow of some sort. I should EM a picture and you can tell me!

  7. Kinda scary that I can see so many things and people in the Rorschach fence. Men and owls and one-eyed monsters and kings and devils, oh my. Thank you for teaching me to look up at the sky more often. Can't name them like you, but I do love them.

  8. lindaj-- Yes, I love that you see Roger looking like Santa. I hadn't noticed, but I see it now! Please send me any pics of birds that you see at your feeder that you can't identify. I love a good mystery!

    NCmountainwoman-- I am smiling as I type this, because you see what I saw. Yes, men and owls, monsters, kings, and devils. I am so glad that you are looking up at the skies. It's amazing what's happening up there-- beautiful, subtle, dramatic, and always ephemeral.

  10. isabelita-- So glad you like the sky photos. I've been going back in our blog archives to our Port Townsend days and noticing how often I photographed the skies there too. I had forgotten.

  11. I keep going back to the fence. I see faces that look vaguely familiar, faces belonging to philosophers who urge me to question what I see. And, then, I see something more down-to-earth; the two center boards, in particular, were cut from the same log. I wonder if the entire fence emerged from just one tree.

  12. John-- I see that fence everyday out bedroom slider. It looks different to me depending on the light and the weather. Yes, the center boards do look like they were cut from the same log. That makes it so rich and wonderful to me too.

  13. Hey there! A great group of photos. Isn't it amazing how great photos taken with phones are these days? That fence is really blowing my mind. I can see a few faces in it at first glance. One of which is Wilson, from the movie Castaway, is one of them.

  14. Pat-- So glad you liked that fence photo. I actually hesitated posting it on Facebook last week, thinking it was too silly to post. The responses there were fantastic! It really is such an evocative piece of fencing.
