Sat. 11.16.19 – Here we are in mid-November, the weather is damp and chilly but, yet, there are still a few rose bushes with blooms in various stages of end of season decomposition at the Rose Garden in Hyde Park. This particular pink rose bush had small flowers that were twice the size of a minature rose, but half the size of a regular rose. The rose hips were tiny and the whole was altogether lovely.

Thurs. 11.14.19 – One of my favorite things to do when I am visiting London is to take a long walk in the park(s) every day. If it is warm, I will only walk through Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, but if it is cold I will keep walking through Green Park to St. James’ Park. If I go the whole way to the far end of St. James’ Park, it is 2.47 miles one way and my fitbit is nearly ready to have a fireworks party.
I don’t find this walk boring, as the plants, trees, and animals are always up to something new, and the people are good to observe as well. I will listen to music, or a podcast, or take the earbuds out and listen to all the sounds in the park and the roads near by.
I have several favorite year around trees, but in early spring and late autumn there a few trees that go all out. The above trees and clouds are winning for the mid-November 2019 autumn finale spectacle.

Fri. 11.08.19 – More and more, due to software algorithms, it is hard to get a phone’s camera to achieve a satisfying blur or nightscape. All the recent camera phones want to make dark scenes light and blurred scenes sharp.
Thus, when I am able to get the Samsung in a quick snapshot to achieve a nice blur, as in the airplane skidmarks turned into continuous black lines in the photo above at landing yesterday, it makes me happy.

Thurs. 11.07.19 – With the autumn SoCal Fire Season in full swing, I am off to non-asthma indicing fresh air.
