Journey of a body on this earth


Waterbird Regional Preserve

This morning I took my camera club to the Waterbird Regional Preserve in Martinez at the crack of dawn.  There’s a refinery right across the way from the preserve, and I’ve always thought it was such an interesting juxtaposition of nature and man.

I didn’t get anything spectacular but it was a fun outing!




Warning:  This is a departure from the joy of the Christmas season!

The other morning I drove some miles away to take a picture of smoke coming out of a refinery.  I specifically went at 10 am to capture the light just right.  B&W is not something I do often, and in fact I haven’t done much since I started taking pictures.

Some day I hope we get away from needing these refineries.  As modern as I feel sometimes with my wireless, clouded, slimline devices, I realize how crude (literally) we really are in how we sustain our society.

More merriment in my next post, but for now….
