A Day I Missed

I would have been happy to find this first shot in someone’s well-tended garden, so I was really surprised to find this flower in the middle of a weed patch at the edge of the sidewalk looking just as healthy as you please.

The next picture, however, was taken in someone’s garden, as were the remainder of the floral shots that will appear in the mosaic that is made up of the rest of the shots from that little day-trip that I somehow failed to get entered in here in it’s actual turn. Oh well, better late than never.

This next shot is what I believe is known as a Stellar Jay here on the West Coast, and I was lucky enough to catch this shot of him on my way home that night.

And finally, as the perfect capper to a great day, it turned out I was to be treated to an event that only occurs during the clearest of atmospheric conditions. When the weather is just right, when I look out my seventh-floor kitchen window, in the south-east, I am treated to a beautiful view of Mt. Baker, over in Washington State, in the good old U. S. of A. On those evenings, with the aid of my 200mm lens, it looks something like this. So for now, everybody take care, stay healthy, and we’ll see you next time.

  1. Wow, I love how you found such beauty in a patch of weeds! What a wonderful gift you have; I seem to be unable to capture such scenes on my little camera. Your framing is beautiful and a gift in and of itself. These pictures were shared at the precise time they were meant to be shared. That is my philosophy on forgotten things, anyway. (((hugs)))

    1. Sometimes I see the way the world presents its beauty in such an off-hand manner, as though to say “Here is real power, and this is what power should be used for.” If we only spent as much time building each other up as we do tearing each other down, I think the whole world would look just like that little flower.

  2. I’m so sorry I’m late in commenting and liking posts, David. Your posts are always lovely. Please forgive me for being caught in the weeds. Hopefully soon the new meds for my RLS will work and I shall be able to be more involved in my blog and bloggers posts again. Hugs, N 🙂 ❤

    1. I’ve been fortunate enough to hike it a couple times up to the glacier-line, but after that you pretty much need decent training and specialized gear. It is a wonderful hike though. Ever since I watched a science-fiction movie where it erupted and took out Vancouver, I look at it in the same way that I think about earthquakes. Lol.
