I'm Back!

Well, I'm back and hoping to see how long I can keep this current. I started work in July and I've been hard pressed to get out, take pictures and keep things current on this blog. I really miss sharing my photos here when I finally get a chance to take them. Let's see... what should I post?

I went to Descanso Gardens. At this time of the year there's not much in bloom but I always seem to find something to take photos of there. No roses but plenty of camellias so I could get my favorite fallen camellias in the water shots.

This is the rose garden now - really drab with all of the bushes cut back. Even the trees look threadbare and yet it's still pretty to me.

There were a few birds flittering about but not quite as many as I usually see.


As for the photo below, well.... this is why I think flies are just nasty!

Welcome back! I have been to Descanso this time of the year, and the rose bushes and trees were almost bare.

The fly may be nasty, but its a very impressive macro.

Looking forward to more of your photography!

Welcome back!! I have missed your wonderful photographs too!! I hope that things are going great with you too. Finding time to fit in everything we want to do can be nerve racking. Most day I wish there were more hours in mine. :)

Welcome back! So glad things are settling into place at the new job! I agree the fly is nasty looking, but they serve a purpose in life, and the shot itself is incredible.

Lovely images as always and the color is really cheerful right now while we have grey days and dreary weather.
