Walk with Me

Walk with Me

WEB5Take a bucolic Santa Monica walk with me…one of many. Enter though the archway.

WEB9Feast your eyes on the magnificent purples of the Jacaranda blooms, punctuated by white paper lanterns round as moons.

WEB8Purple butterflies and pink flamingos strut and flutter across this yard.

WEB3Buried deep in the foliage of fern and palm, this house hosts garden sculpture and pink blossoms.

WEB6WEB5Intricate painting on a front gate door is enhanced by picturesque peeling, showing the effect of wind and weather.

WEBflr1Further Jacaranda glories line the street.  Tis the season.

WEBflr2Intense purples collide in colorific harmony…

WEB4Passing though? Or living here…don’t miss the delights  of walking  Santa Monica’s leafy avenues…hidden treasures and abject pleasures await those with patience, willingness, and an attentive eye.

 

Everything in the Garden: A Short Saga of Color and Light

Everything in the Garden: A Short Saga of Color and Light

WEB2Starting with a journey from the Inside Out…one extraordinarily light-filled early evening.  Sunlight beckons.

WEB3Sunlight floods the garden, causing my camera to capture what just might be a mini-UFO, standing out rad against the green.

WEB4Catching the roses blushing against stucco.  Compliments green and pink (“light red”) create old world charm.

WEB5Yellow windblown roses explode out of luxuriant green bushes. They seem to be reaching for something…moisture?

WEB6Red and white stripes hover shyly behind leaves.

WEB8A  twist of tendrils around a solo pink blossom.

WEB7Pièce de résistance du jardin…perhaps its highlight….this perfect peach rose.

WEB9Fresh and cool, these beautiful whites light our way home like stars when the sun sets.

WEB9aTo the purple side of pink.  These keep us in the Pink…and strike us pink at the same time.

WEB9cLines of moire…and shadow of palm fronds create optics on the wall…a trick of light, shadow, and the distance between things.

WEB9bA natural mural composition.  This arresting composition yearns to be painted.
