Sunday Roundup

Gathering Some Of The Rest

Lilies brighten the world around those of us lucky enough to see and enjoy them. I have a backlog of so many lily pictures, that the ones I finally post, have had their day and new ones have taken their place in the scheme of things.

This pie picture is from days ago, but I didn’t have space, or the continuity to place it anywhere, until now. All I remember is that it tasted as good as it looks, and rather than use it as an illustration for a philosophical treatise, it now stands on it’s own merits.

Yesterday, the temperature was cool enough, (79 degrees), that I was able to get some time-lapse video on the iPod Touch from the dam overlook without it overheating and turning off. I took many pictures with the TZ3 and the FZ5 while the iPod was steadily snapping frames that would become the time-lapse. To record a 6 minute time-lapse video takes about an hour.

Beautiful flowers have been attracting my attention for some spectacular compositions of light, shape, and color. The driveway rose, (above), caught my eye as I was coming up the driveway, returning from Lake Shasta. I parked the Buick and walked back to get this almost three dimensional moment.

Another colorful lily makes this page.

Now that I have caught up to my satisfaction, I can begin editing the MT Shasta footage and photos. If I can, I would like to have John Harrison co-write and play on the soundtrack, Monday or Tuesday.

Today was warm, (high 90’s), and windy, here in Redding. I had to keep the string on my hat pulled tight to keep it from blowing off my head.

And now, one of Count Basie’s ‘Jump Tunes’. Recorded in 1937.
