Cool grey days make the colors and textures pop. This is a great time for color photos and portraits outside. Shoot in the early morning or late afternoon for shadows and texture detail.

Walking a neighborhood is the only way to see it, is it Oakland or Paris?

more local color

Loved this, its on the top floor or a parking garage in Berkeley, there is only the Up and no sign for the Down ramp. I'll have to come back after dark to see if it still lights up....

The persimmon harvest is good this year, a bit small but sweet.

Close up inspection of the moss reveals a little forest of plants, remember to walk carefully...

New years resolution?

the last one.........

Since the Fall of 2010 is now totally over, I feel much more like coming out of my shell and posting a bit more. They say bad things come in threes and those were three tough months, September, October and November!!
Onto new business. I've been cooking up a storm the last two weeks, it goes with the winter weather, cold, rain, more cold.... Today's feast, potato latkes, made with zucchini and spinach so good!
In the pan......
