This is one of my favorite places in Lake Tahoe to sit, read, and watch the sunset.
We arrived yesterday evening around 11:00PM and feeling very tired. Today was the first day of the Spanish intensive course at LTCC, it was hectic, and I was tired. After school I took a nap, then headed out for a walk. I saw this mural on the side of a building located on San Francisco Street.
I walked all the way up Telegraph Hill, then the 174 steps up to Coit Tower. And, I enjoyed every step of of the way, especially since I got lucky with a clear, sunny day (it was overcast and cold the day after). San Francisco such a pretty city that it’s a joy to walk from neighborhood to neighborhood, even while your legs and feet are are screaming to stop. And, I visited the American Academy of Sciences, and the Asian Art Museum. Both were quite enjoyable, and I will revisit next time I’m in town.
Our photography organizer gave us the task of considering lines in our composition. We went to Disney Concert Hall to do a photo shoot. We were allowed inside to roam in the building; there are also guided tours. It’s a very interesting building and it was a good exercise.
I went on a wonderful trip with some very nice adventurous photographers. We met at Oakland Airpot where we rented cars and drove to Northern California, near the Oregon border. We spent two and a half days going exploring the beautiful area, taking lots of photos, and enjoying some great food and company.
This photo is of a tree stump covered in lovely clover. It’s amazing how much regenerations there is in the forest. Nothing truly dies; trees re-sprout branches, ferns, moss, and various plants are nurtured by the fallen trees, and leaves. The ground feels like a thick carpet.
I awoke with a craving for pancakes. I thought about going to the chain restaurant down the street but I needed better ambiance, without muzak playing on the background. I started driving not knowing to where and then saw this little restaurant. Perfect place to have breakfast, sip coffee, and read.
I really like the light here, the way it reflects off the tables and chairs.
