Convict Creek Aspens

Wed. 10.17.18 – The beautiful golden leaved aspens at the delta where the Convict Creek meets Convict Lake. The light through the autumnal leaves was amazing in this space.

Another photo from Wed the 24th during the golden hour as the light was so nice that evening with the dark clouds over the land and the last of the sunlight sliding under the clouds to light up the evening.

Same County, Two and a Half Hours Apart

3:03pm, Hwy 241 Southbound to Santa Margarita 5:31pm, Seal Way, Seal Beach
Mon 01.03.11 – This afternoon I helped my sister and mom pick up Allison’s new used Prius at the Penske Toyota dealership in Santa Margarita, as we drove to south east Orange County the rain clouds opened up and blue sky peeped through an avocado grove. It was beautiful.
By the time I got home, it was time for Scruffy’s evening walk and off we went. Only two and half hours from the time I took the first photo in the Orange County hills, it was cloudy and ominous in north west oceanic OC. As we set out for our walk, the sun will finished setting and the last refracting blue light of dusk was shooting through the clouds at odd angles on top of the yellow cast street light bouncing off the houses.

Time to Light the Pilot Light

Time to Light the Pilot Light

Thurs 12.04.08 – I love to live in older houses. In the last 14 years, I have lived in apartments and houses ranging from the 1860s (with little updates), to 1894 (the best one), to a WWII era former Navy family apt (now), to early Boeing engineer housing (1961). I like the funkiness and lack of sameness that older homes have. I really like the unique features, then un-renovated bits, and the termites.
Not really the last bit about the termites, but I live in SoCal on the edge of a large desert, termites were here before we were. When folks from other places move to the LA area one invariably hears two things, 1) What do you mean we have water problems? Isn’t there plenty of rivers around here. [Why yes there are, they are concrete and are lawn runoff, not rain], 2) Why do the ants fly in the spring and early summer? [Uh, those aren’t ants, they are termites.]
I have used flea spray to get the termites out of and off my antique furniture and it is surprisingly effective.
