Books Taking Flight
A flight of fancy that feels somber; having laid my father to rest this weekend, I wanted something that could show a little of the feelings… Of course, given his thoughts on putting his pictures online, (NOT a fan), I decided not to do that now.
These books taking flight, at The Last Bookstore in Los Angeles, did make me think of how the memory, the story, of one’s life can take flight- I think that works for me at the moment………..
Blonde Model with her Swing
Taken on Manhattan Beach, a snapshot with the subject near a swing in the sand…
Mayhap I will post a picture from the swinging portion as well. (Feel free to leave a comment requesting)
Griffith Tesla Coil
With its giant arcing sparks and unnerving noise, Griffith Observatory’s Tesla coil is one of its most memorable and iconic exhibits. This snapshot, of it throwing lightning-like discharges to the walls of its alcove, is a bit disappointing, as the Faraday Cage is in the way. That said, shot of lightning- or lightning-like discharges- always tickle my fancy…

Classic Light, Modern Downtown

I like the interplay of the classic light with the modern city skyline in the background…
