Our “ancient” redwood door, weathered by ocean air, catches the setting sun,exposing its age.
There’s an out space look to rocks exposed by low tide here in Carmel. Took this photo at sunset–that’s why there is a reddish tint to the shot. The sun is blinding at this time of year.
I’m sitting on a rock enjoying the sunset yesterday… Molly, not so much. She likes to run whenever she touches sand. The sun dropping below the horizon doesn’t do anything for her.
n a bustling metropolitan area of over one million people, there are wild turkeys on the loose, stopping traffic wherever they waddle. Anne took these shots with a cell phone yesterday while I held back our barking dogs.

I don’t know why five pairs of shoes laced together hang from electrical wires over a nice residential street in Sacramento. The reasons given on the internet why shoes hang from wires range from the dark side (drug territory markings) to the expected (teenage pranks).
