This was an example of framing using natural light. I was in a cave that was part of the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. There was a cave opening that allowed water to flow in and out. I took this opportunity to practice some framing. It is not a traditional frame but a frame no less.
This photo was taken on one of the trails that are near the Sutro Baths in San Francisco, California. I thought these trees had a great look to them. While editing the photo I created what looks very similar to an illustration you would see in a storybook.
We have Key Limes and they are good. I can’t wait to make my first cocktail from our backyard lime bush.
A very unusual caterpillar has been eating the crap out of our grapefruit tree. I killed two of them before I discovered that they are the caterpillar of the swallowtail butterfly.
I discovered two cocoons and one other caterpillar chowing down. I am going to let the tree get abused for now, besides it gives us no fruit anyway. I love butterflies.
I am now committed to cooking. I spent a load of dough today on this pot (and not the kind of dough you knead). I needed a larger sturdy dish like this for cooking chicken dishes, beef dishes and what ever else comes into mind. Don’t you love the rooster!
This photo was shot in shutter priority without a flash with ISO setting of 200. I lightened it up a bit on the computer but it still is a little dark. I like the warm look. There aren’t too many blown out bits that appear.
We have 4 citrus bushes in our backyard and over the past few weeks I have noticed that one is going into decline. This weekend I was able to do a little research on the matter and I think I have come to the conclusion that my bush has a nitrogen deficiency. The UF extension office web site has wonderful advice on every kind of issue that a gardener could have in Florida. It is a great resource to use. I have officially diagnosed the problem with the Eureka Lemon as Yellow Vein Chlorosis. This also could be caused by water damage. To treat this problem, I will be monitoring the irrigation in the area and I have applied some cottonseed meal I had in the garage to increase the nitrogen levels a bit. Hopefully I will be able to save our only lemon bush.
