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.

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

IMG_9691

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.

How Do I Paint a Tree ? Sierra Nevada Mountain Range

 

trees across the creek-2

We stopped on the way for In-N-Out Burgers

Fries and orders of strawberry milkshakes

Manmade shapes turned into nature’s biomorphic forms

As we climbed to a little under 7,000 feet

 

We baked french bread at this elevation

And didn’t make adjustments to the recipe

 

Straightening our limbs we step out of the car

First, just quickly go look at the pond!

Oh, look at the quivering yellow leaves on the Aspen tree!

 

Down by the creek’s edge, I look up

Past cottonwood trees at the water’s edge

I see a little fir Christmas tree tucked in

Between the tall green Jeffrey pines.
