Life’s simple pleasures. How many times have we heard that? I’ve spent the last few days to decompress, reunite with old friends and to simply breathe in the sea air.
Everyone had to change their lifestyle last year. Most of us have gotten thru it with few hiccups. The walk is still not over but we are near it. Take the time today and take a deep breath. Take a view of our earth and see where you are. Feel it. See it. Photograph it.
Have been home all week. A friend asked if I liked early retirement….This is not retirement. This is a situation that we are ALL going thru (except for the idiots on the Florida beaches. Really??)
I am not under quarantine. Getting out to photograph in early morning light or in the golden hour before sunset and rush hour. Wait, there is no rush hour. Streets are virtually empty. Movie houses, restaurants and bars closed.
However the cherry blossoms are in bloom. The tourists are non existent. The Trump presidency is a fiasco. He thinks he can put off the election?? Stay tuned.
After leaving scenic Oregon’s Crater and Diamond Lakes, the California/Oregon coast line brings about a nice change of atmosphere. A cloudy coastline view still proves to be idyllic with the Battery Point Lighthouse as well as the redwood national park not too far away. The California Redwoods prove exhilarating.
