The Vine Maples on the West End

On Sunday along US 101 west of the lake, the vine maples were at the height of their color. The sun came and went. In the sunshine, in some places, they absolutely flamed.

The sun came and went. A rainshower passed by.

I read for a while.

Soundscape for Cee, Retreating Tide

No pelicans. On the way home, out over the river, two bald eagles were hunting hunting, talons hanging down and head bent to eyeball the water. They'd stoop. Didn't seem to carry off anything. They were very vocal.

Do you take the videos with your iPhone or your iPad?

Digital camera, a small stupid one. Phone too is a stupidphone.

Must have been a stupid question.

Nah. It's the machines, not the people...

aHA! here I am on the actual blog. got to listen to the waves, my favorite sound. didn't think it lasted 2min40sec though. maples also very nice. lovely color. same stupid camera? doesn't seem that stupid from here. I priced new ones and oddly (or not so) the lower tier hovered around $200+ then shot up straight to >$500...no middle ground, so I'm staying stupid (and paid for) with 5 megapixels, mini video, etc.
Oh, so what do you do with the iMachines?
