Like little sparkling jewels. 

After a hard rain.

The jewels of nature. Sparkling like they have their own light source. Laying on wet pavement for all to see.

We are at that weird point of summer merging into autumn. It is very hot. The light is getting low and golden. Leaves are starting to fall. A leaf fell on the all seeing dog. She shook it off and barked at it. How dare that leaf invade her space.

You see pretty little scenes like this one. Wet pavement. Wet bits of flowers. Wet leaves. The scene turns sort of magical. If you have eyes that see. Really see. Or, if you have an imagination to take you away from the mundane.

The picture. Wet pavement and brightly colored bits of nature make for a very nice picture. A little work in post production to tune things up a bit and away you go.


I spent the better part of yesterday working on my new and improved website. There were a number of technical difficulties that were mostly caused by unique terminology. The basic format is done and there are some pictures, mostly older ones. I invite you to come see for your self at

  1. As mentioned before, I appreciate how you’ve designed your site to be so refined and easy to navigate. Too many “professional photographers” official websites are often too loud, too busy, and not quite so user-friendly. Or maybe I am just old fashioned 🙂
    I can imagine it’s not an easy task at all to maintain such a site. I hope it’s not too stressful and you can enjoy some of the process too 🙂

    1. I think that mostly depends on who you are working with as your host. But, in my newspaper days, our page designers used to call me “the dean of clean.” I suppose that’s how I organize chaos.

      Once you build the underlying architecture and add SEO, aside from blogging, it really becomes a monthly task. That said, I have to work through my archives looking for the best of my work and making proper sizes.
