I love the clouds. Looks like something an artist would do; drag a rake across the sky or paint a cloud stripe and then tilt the sky before the clouds dry to get them to flow down. Then put the sky back in its place. The fence on the left side of the image was begging...

Sculpture by Marco Cochrane on Treasure Island of a 40 foot woman. Flickr map here. Official site here. I had seen photos of this sculpture but they were mostly night shots. I figured I wouldn’t get anything good because of the time of day. And then I started...

No, this was not taken today. I took this a couple of months ago and found it browsing through the hard drive. Today, it’s warmer, no snow (for the most part) and I think the harshest part of the winter is finally over. Sure, we’ll probably see a couple...
