Tues 08.02.16 – I love how not every wave travels the same distance in the intertidal zone. I stood and took a long photo / short video to see how long it would be from the last wave to hit my feet to the next wave to hit my feet (39 seconds for the impatient).
Sat 07.30.16 – With less than 300 before my beloved BLKPHBE the Prius turns 200,000 miles, the red triangle of death showed up today in the middle of Beach Blvd. The warning signals from the car forced it to Neutral and I had to restart the car much to the road rage distress of other drivers behind me to engage the car into drive to pull over to a gas station. An hour and a half later, the nice folks from AAA sent a tow truck and off we went the 14 miles to Toyota of Huntington Beach just before the Service Department closed up for the day. I will have to wait until Monday to hear what the problem is.
Wed 07.20.16 – While it was very hot at the Huntington Library and Gardens today, it was still a very beautiful day, especially at the lily ponds.

Thurs 06.02.16 – My Mom’s garden is quite profuse with flowers of every sort right now. Near the steps to go up to the front porch, she has a spot of the herb feverfew growing. The last few times I have walked by, I have seen these tiny little bugs on the small white and yellow flowers. Today I decided to bring out my wide manual macro lens and the macro extension tubes to see if I could capture what the little beetles really looked like.
The little black and white lady beetles are lovely.

“Sometimes it seems to me a miracle that so many worlds exist on the same planet and don’t fall inside one another and collapse. How do we do it? Even more so in the age of social media, where everything exists all of the time.” – Deepti Kapoor, in the essay – My Indian Passport is a Bitch
