I found this pinback in a camera bag from the late 1970s. It was a wonderful goal then and a worthy goal now especially in light of the pandemic.

Happy SUNday! – In the Garden

A few images of the garden after some overnight thundershowers (storms).

DSC00030

After 15 years of weathering our cypress fence supports a wide variety of organisms. This image was taken with my Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W830. Even at 20.1 megapixels, the image doesn’t pop your eyeballs out of your head. ISO 200 but a super slow shutter speed. The limitation of the Sony is that it’s not at its best in lower light situations.

The same section of the fence but this image was taken with my Samsung Galaxy S8+

It’s hard to say which image is “better” as they are both technically correct. The Samsung shows a lot more processing and as a result, looks sharper. But is it better? The Sony shot is closer to capturing the realness of the scene.

Crepe myrtle blossoms – almost an unnatural pink but that’s the way they look. No post-processing. Sony Cyber-shot.

New growth – wonderful greens. Sony Cyber-shot.

The View from our Garden Window

A look through our garden window on this wet and cool North Florida day. Traditional autumn colors mixed with the pink of an Encore azalea and the wonderful colors of a poinsettia – oh, and our strange little “cactus” from somewhere in the galaxy (last pic).

Our tribute garden just outside of our dining room window. The cypress fence becomes alive with lichen and moss through the years – lots of sun and tropical rains provide the perfect environment. Papa Sol has been looking over the garden for nearly 20 years now – keeping it safe and providing a home for lizards.

The Home Depot “cactus from outer space” that keeps changing into new and bizarre shapes almost daily. I don’t think it was meant to live this long.

Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
