I was very fond of these perky sharp shadows on a Palo Alto sidewalk. In its usual way, California is causing the spring flowers to bloom too soon, which I quite enjoy.

Another duotoned infrared from the History Park. And canning is another domestic skill that has lost most of its importance since my childhood. Yum! I like the way this tone looks against the black background. There are so many variable and so much to learn!

My friend, Carol, did this arrangement for an art exhibit. There is nothing like those first spring blossoms on the bare brown twigs of fruit trees!
