This Cannot Be Denied

Humans Caused Haze

When people are too dumb, or too lazy to figure out what to do with stuff, they burn it. There are even permits that direct the unimaginative wastrels to burn things on certain days.

It has been a few burn days in a row, coupled with a southerly wind and the result is obscuring the beautiful north state scenery, (not to mention polluting the air).

Luckily, the Lumix TZ1 is quite capable when it comes to close up photography, and there is plenty of beautiful minutiae around the Treehouse Senior Apartments just waiting to be discovered.

These new leaves on the rose bushes are colorfully accented by some sort of yellow aphids. But the magic imagery doesn’t have to stop there.

There is this colorful edge enhancement, or even a kaleidoscope view.

Who knew that aphids on a leaf could be so pretty?

The magnolias continue to be a delight to view and photograph.

It will be interesting to see how many of the blossoms on the trees survive the series of  winter storms that are expected to begin tomorrow.

I am glad I got a chance to get outside to enjoy this sunny day. Tomorrow’s schedule, combined with putting the Buick in the shop, doesn’t look like it will be filled with landscape photography opportunities.

What’s that? I thought the last post said the Buick was getting a new belt and pulley?

Not yet.

The good news; It wasn’t the pulleys bearings making the noises, so it doesn’t need replacing.

The bad news; It was the bearings for the water pump that failed.

I will bring you the latest news on the Buick’s repairs in the next exciting, (and colorful), episode here at Phil’s Place.

It’s All Good
