It’s A Bird. It’s A Plane. It’s Superbug! San Francisco Flyover

IMG_9913Front and Center, this guy had the best seat in the house. Roof top seating was awesome.

IMG_9927Fog crept in, very low to the ground, enough fog to keep the Angels from flying on Saturday

Blue AngelsI took a lot of shots to get this one. 1/1000 sec at f/5.6

They’re back!

Blue Angels Over Coit Tower  Maneuvers performed in tight formation at 400 mph.

I burned the onions!

First I heard the sound.  Then I heard a roar. The Blue Angels performed a flyover as they flew over San Francisco Bay.

I know, my feelings are contrary to a lot of other people’s feelings when it comes to the Blue Angels, but I just can’t help it.

I love the sound of a Ferrari engine revving up. I love the speed of a hydroplane.

I think the pilots are awesome when I see them flying in a Delta formation at 400 mph.

I’ll be watching the noisy jets this weekend, unless a blanket of  fog rolls in, covering up the Golden Gate Bridge.

When Birds Are Still – Drawing

I found this little woodpecker outside the bedroom window. He didn’t see the glass. Carefully picking him up I stroked  his tiny body, then lay him on a napkin. For a couple of days I’d come by, say hello and lovingly sketch him.  I gave him back to nature by placing him under one of the tall pine trees down by the the creek.

 

 

 

I Followed a Feather Today – An Answer to Otto’s Post – Diversify and Become More Creative

Following a suggestion from Otto’s post, I took a walk.  http://munchow.wordpress.com/2014/09/09/diversify-and-become-more-creative/

Check out two of my favorite dots, Otto and David. I think you will will be pleased, then go take a walk.

A month ago I was painting 7 foot paintings about how I felt about the wars going on in this world, today. The paintings are waiting for me to come back to the studio. Meanwhile, I’ve been collecting dots, drawing trees, writing a little and following feathers down the street.
