Camping Part I - A Study in Leaves and Colors

We made it back. There are more stories and explanations involved. But I have to travel this week on business and am short time for blogging. Boo hoo for me!

But I did a study on leaves and colors while camping and was kind of obsessed with the dark red Madrone leaves and peeling bark in contrast to the black oak leaves which were still green.


How many ways can you take a picture of leaves?


Too many ways...


And yet another... Are you bored yet?



P.S. Shmobie is OK, but there is quite story behind it. Get it, I made a pun. That situation will be explained in full when I return from travel too. When my work gets in the way of blogging, I know the economy is getting better. I just sincerely hope this means jobs prospects will improve for those who need it most.

Bye for now!!

Tee hee...Julia's out traveling and can't patrol her bloggie! Comment-frenzy time!!!

I've been going crazy with worry about that cat. And worrying Julia would manage to get bitten by a rattler or something while camping (she attracts trouble, let's admit it)...or she might have fallen into poison oak, and been too busy giving its Latin names and collecting its leaves to notice..."Gosh, look, this leaf has sepalitis, and that leaf reminds me of a unnamed dicot I once saw...why am I itching???"

The mice will play while the wildcat's away!

I miss madrones. They are one of many species that instantly take me to California when I see them or think about them.

Your photos are very Andrew Goldsworthy-esque. Nice.

Beautiful pics! The leaves around here haven't started turning yet. I can't wait till they do. I'm so sick of summer. I want cooler temps, rain, and colorful leaves!

I'm glad Shmobie is ok!
