Journey of a body on this earth


Olive Bokeh

The other night I was sitting out on the back deck enjoying the view during a beautiful early evening.   As I looked off in the distance, I noticed reflections from the sun bouncing off a row of car windows.  Fortunately I had my 28-300mm lens on my camera, so I decided to focus on the olive branch on our deck making sure I kept the car windows in my frame.

I love bokeh!

Sparkling Windows from the Golden Gate

Standing at the Golden Gate in the Marin Headlands, you can see sparkling windows in the Berkeley Hills as the sun went down behind me in the west.

Earlier, just as we had arrived, my husband said, “Do you see that helicopter?  I think it’s going to fly under the bridge!”  I didn’t have the camera ready for anything since we had literally just gotten there, but I quickly lifted the camera to my eye, saw the chopper and fired off a couple of shots.  I found out later that it’s a helicopter tour.  Funny, I never knew they did this and I’ve lived here all my life.  Makes even a local want to take the flight.
