And there she goes...

Signs of Saturday: It's war

fallen hawk feather

Someone, somewhere did not go quietly when the hawk flew in.

Nope, not a heron after all

From afar I thought the long-limbed birds in the Pepperdine pond were herons but it turns out (at least I think this is right) that they're long-tailed cormorants. Whoever they are, they're beautiful.

tbt: The garden

One of the challenges of Casa de LOUD! is the lack of space for a real garden, like the one up at the barn.

It's Puppy Wednesday!

Some mornings, we wake up next to a small, hairy shark.

Paradise Cove again

Is it too soon to post another sunset-ish moment from the Paradise Cove bluffs? If so, then don't look, because here it comes.

Window cat

Signs of Saturday: Oldie but goodie

One of my favorite public art works in Malibu can be found at the veterinary hospital.

It's the last day of summer!

adios, summer of 2018

And just like that, our summer's (almost) over. We'll get a few more hours tomorrow and then, at 6:54 pm Pacific time, the sun will align with the equator and it'll be autumn.

Here's Paradise Cove this afternoon. It was warm and quiet and practically deserted.

The little point-and-shoot is nearing the end

bluffs park horizon

The trusty little Canon Powershot has been through a lot. The screen is cracked from being sat on, there's a permanent spot on the lens from being dropped (more than a few times) into the ocean, and the retractible lens sometimes can't open or close due to random grains of sand. (See previous.) There are other, newer cameras waiting to be used but somehow this one, battered and battle-scarred, is the one I still reach for.

This is Bluffs Park, btw, waiting, like the rest of us, to see how this year's rainy season turns out.

It's Puppy Wednesday!

walt the wonderdog

Puppy Wednesday has a second meaning to Walt, the handsome, loyal and wonderfully patient border collie. It's the day of the week that Daisy heads to the local doggie daycare to run around like a maniac, and Walt gets to spend some time without the wild puppy crowding his bed or chewing his collar or otherwise making him wish he could roll his eyes. (Or lock a door.)

Sunset blues

This one's from Friday evening, when the shadows suddenly looked autumnal.

Le sigh

It's been quiet here for over a week, which comes as a shock. So hello again with a photo, not from today. Baby steps.

Almost not quite but kind of

Despite standing very, very still for a really long time, this is the best (really, the only) shot I managed to get of the beautiful swallowtail that visited the garden here for several days last week.

Solstice Canyon light

oaks in the afternoon

The light through the oaks at a certain bend on a certain path in Solstice Canyon is way more beautiful and magical and golden and mysterious than this.

A tiny bit disheveled

This little guy looks like he just woke up after a long night.

Signs of Saturday: Moi

No illusions here.
