July 2002 Photo Page
The theme this month is Travel
and Flowers. I really love flowers. I love to look at them but not to cultivate
them. Diana and I have an agreement that works really well. She pays attention
to dirt and plants and I take care of concrete and wood.
Diana and I took a trip to Portland on business and
pleasure at the beginning of the month. We drove
up the coast of California and Oregon. Here are some of the places we
encountered along the way.
As we traveled up the coast of
California and Oregon, The Theme changed. First I thought The Theme this month
would be TRAVEL
BY MORV. Then, as our attention changed, I added RED to the theme. I got
hypersensitive to the color red in the world. As I added RED images, I also
noticed BLUE. Then we started looking at organic stuff like flowers, trees and vegetables.
Hence, the disjointed effort this month.
Later on, we ended the month in
New York state. Some really great photos from that trip, including a fascinating
visit to the Corning Glass Works.

"Newww Yorrrrrk City?"
Yep. We went to New York for a traveling show and were lucky enough to
fly into La Guardia on the river approach. Imagine what these photos would
look like if it had been a clear day? I'd retire on the stock photo
"Joke on you. Whole island solid concrete. Nothing grow except
in little area in the middle."
"You get a good sound out of those moccasins."
"Yep, and they're tap dancin' on dirt, too!"*

"I'm only thissssss big!"
"Hum, I wonder what this is?"
(I hope it doesn't bite!)
I'd be lion if I said I didn't like this photo.
Don'tcha think Marilyn needs one of these? ("Here

A 70-300mm lens on a digital camera makes it a 105-460mm.

|OTHER ORGANIC STUFF
They look good enough to eat if you eat such things.
Gilroy watch out.
Heavy wood, man.
Too much sharpening filter for my liking but an interesting silhouette.
I just love the color red. Every now and again I look for red in nature
and find images like this.
