I almost left the doctor’s office without taking a picture of the sign. It’s not the worst door instruction sign I ever saw. The worst one read: “Keep Door Closed at All Times.” I’m on the lookout to photograph that one if I ever see it again. This one almost qualifies to be entered into […]
Here is a standpipe, installed next to a parking garage. In case they have to put it out.
This isn’t a sign one sees every day, as a general rule:
It was hot here today: In fact it was so hot, I saw this dog chasing this rabbit…. and they were both walking.
I get in a creative rut every now and then. I can’t seem to think of anything new to paint or draw. Sometimes, looking at my books about art by my favorite artists, and essays by knowledgeable critics, gives me a boost. What I seek from my readings and reproductions of art from the masters, […]

I walked by the passion fruit vine again this morning. I couldn’t resist the delicate orange ovoid fruit, so I took a couple with me. In addition to its nearly perfect egg shape, its tendrils came very close to circumscribing perfect circles in the air (hard to see in the still life below, but it […]
The passion fruit vine strangling the Japanese maple tree (see Mystery Flower) is a short distance from my house. The other day, the normal, green hue of the bushy vine was dotted with orange. On closer inspection, I saw that some of the fruit that had been green, were now orange. Here are a couple […]
