A friend turned me on to this junk yard for tractors. I spent a couple of hours wandering around taking various shots and liked this one. It’s Ford’s Golden Jubilee model celebrating 5o years of production from 1908 to 1958.
This past weekend I was in Northern California staying near the San Joaquin River. I don’t often use HDR in my photography but in this case the clouds were moving so fast with changing light it was too temping to pass up. Taken from a boat dock shooting into the water.
I’ve always wanted to literally lay down on the railroad tracks for a photo. Now I have.
I attended a car show on Sunday which was a charity event benefiting Hospice so I wasn’t there to take photos but took a few. For someone who likes landscape photography it was a different experience. There was no way to set up a shot. Too many cars in the way and people everywhere walking into your field of view and all that. I learned quickly to get in close and be quick. The first photo is the front fender emblem of a 1958 Buick Roadmaster. The second is the rear view mirror from a 1935 Cadillac.
I was driving through this community on the way home today and saw these succulents with really tall bright yellow corkscrew blooms. The speed sign in the right of the shot can give you a sense of their height.
The Torry Yucca was in vivid bloom last week in the Arizona desert near Sedona. The bloom is about 2 feet tall. This species was named for John Torrey (1796-1873), the Columbia University botanist, who designated this yucca as a new variety in 1859.
