Tail Lights

This is the picture the previous Mandala came from. A night shot of tail lights going across 15th street looking down Larimer Square.

Tail Lights

A month ago I took a night photo class, one of the things we were to do was get a good picture of blurred taillights. We went to Larimer Square in downtown Denver which has little lights strung all the way across the block. In this Mandala they create a spider web effect. The crossed structures in the middle are the blurred taillights of cars driving down the street - since it's a one way street no headlights were coming back at us. All the night shots required a tripod. It was fun!

New Leaf

My houseplants have been very patient waiting for Spring to settle down so they all can go outside and enjoy the summer, but the weather has been so unsettled and it's still snowing in the mountains. Above is a new leaf of a Rex Begonia just catching the early morning sunlight inside the house. We haven't had any early morning light of late because it is raining and raining! Can't complain we need the moisture. Would like the sun to shine again though.

Spring Sunrise

Spring in Colorado comes in only a few days - it's been chilly and now for two days we will be in the 80's. Whew! It's still a privilege to live here. It's planting time today. I've been carrying seedlings in and out as weather permits, it looks like it will stay above freezing at night now!!
