Photography

I don't pretend to expertise in photography. I just like to take pictures. Here are a few of them. Click on the image to see a larger version.

  Late winter in Olympia--spring should be here, but if spring means flowers and sunshine, it isn't. I think I'm going nuts. Here, a crow perches in bare branches, as perfectly camouflaged as the season itself.
     
  I've noticed that newcomers to a place have erratic ideas about trash and treasure. In the northwest, this grainlike grass is cultivated as an ornamental. I think it's beautiful, but it also looks to me like a weed. As a newcomer in California, I made a bouquet of another ornamental grass, locally known as foxtail. My friends were incredulous--it's a terrible pest plant there. It looked like wild wheat to me, and for all I know, that's exactly what it is.'
