They’re back!

Formation

binoculars

 

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.

Thinking about Richard  Guest’s post Realm of Dusk  http://thefutureispapiermache.wordpress.com/,  collage of photographs. Thinking about David Hockney’s exhibit, The Big Picture http://hockney.famsf.org/,  the way he experimented with different media. Thinking about Otto’s post  http://munchow.wordpress.com/philosophy,  trust in the creative process and find your own voice. And, thinking about a collaboration I did with Emily Hughes  http://journeyofaphotograph.com/2013/10/08/night-train-to-sapa/  And, Karen’s creative glimpses into her world http://drawandshoot.me/  (I think we were putting together our posts at the same time) I snapped some shots with my cell phone while driving to San Francisco during rush hour.  (Nope, I wasn’t driving.) This mélange is a quick capture of the traffic scene from 4 to 6 on November 14th 2013. Some images may be worth double clicking, like the abstract ones. The others? I was just clicking away with my cell phone. Just having fun playing around while spending a couple of hours in traffic !

When I was Two.

I was nearly new.

When I was Three

I was hardly me.

But now I am Six, I’m as clever as clever,

so I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.”

Quote from A.A Milne, Now We Are Six

When you clean up your room, you find all kinds of things.
I found a box of of folded paintings I had made in
nursery school, when I was around three. My mother
had saved my first paintings.
The first painting is poster paint on faded yellowed paper.
The second painting is acrylic paint on canvas 30″ x 30″
I created this painting last month.
The thread is there. I’ve been making art
since I was was two and nearly new.
