There and back again

Pix from the plane, one of my favorite things:

Marina Del Rey:

adios, LA


Catalina:

Two Harbors:

Somewhere over New Mexico:

Wildfire east of LA, just getting started:

Hello LA freeways, you look even more alien from the air:

Until next time

Adios, New Mexico, it's always so sad to say goodbye.

xoxo to new mexico


I'll miss your autumn rain:

And your roof cats.

Glass fence

Among other things (pants) (no kidding) I forgot to pack my battery charger on this trip to New Mexico and because the power indicator on the little point-and-shoot capriciously moves from "fire away!" directly to "EMPTY", I've been as frugal with photos during this visit as in the days of actual film.

That said, here's one of the hundreds of gently crumbling adobes that dot the landscape, some definitely abandoned, others merely decoratively melting. This one, I'm pretty sure, is home to someone, which means the glass fence will keep on growing.

For lease

I don't know if you can read both of the signs but the oldest house in the US:

Autumnal

Here in New Mexico, far from SoCal's Ridiculously Resilient Ridge, we have rain (and rainbows) :


not just rain -- a rainbow too.




And nights so cool that autumn leaves are changing color.

Palms

Vertical photos are always a challenge for the horizontally-minded blog but for the palms at Malibu Seafood, there was no other way to go.

Whooo?

A great horned owl, perched in the yucca a half hour before sunset, that's who.

I'd say something about the heat today but tomorrow's supposed to be even hotter so I'll save my moaning until then.

Stay tuned.

The view from here this morning

Wind stirs, moves heat down the canyon. Coyotes drowse in the brush. Out to sea the currents swirl, boats sail, and in the moment it took to tell this, it has grown even hotter still.

here comes the heat wave


hot today
