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 proceeds. 

"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!"*
