ANOTHER WAY OF LOOKING and 90 Days of Summer or Winter

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The plaque in front says that the  Celebration
Garden in the Huntington Library Gardens
was in memory of Janet and Steven Rogers
and Family. At last  October ‘s visit it looked
too modern and linear to me.

 

 

 


When in July (9 months later)   I asked hubs to take a shot
of this view again, he protested,
“But we already photographed this!”
I  nodded and added my intention – “it’s the same spot,
but it looks different:)”

 

 

 

A lovely shady place at Santa Inez
(close to Solvang), Southern California. There are two doors here,
1) where the hat hangs on, the Outpost Trad. Co,
2) where the dress is displayed on a headless mannequin
which was visible for me, but the angle
from which I took this does not make it clear:(
So instead, a door with a reflection below!

 

Love this big flower pot – like a still life

These doors about 12 inches thick seem over the top,
but not if you know  these are one of the doors
of the Forbidden Cities (the former
royal palaces) in Beijing. When son began to teach in China,
we visited him after a year –
the chance of our life time to visit this country

For DutchGTN the rickety slicing lock for the doors above
looks like the the way they chose a lock does not fit!

Profile of a young would be painter. He could easily become
one, if  he decides to concentrate on the apples
on his painting instead of his Grandfather taking pics, lol.

for Makro-Tex in tandem with the clothes: orange-blue

 

Several times wanted to post this door with a reflection,
but don’t think I ever did:)

  1. PS: Thank you for your kind words about my music. Music is important to me and like you, I often find it easy to express the inexpressible through this art.

  2. Lovely shots, Jesh. It’s so important to encourage everyone to be creative (especially so young people!) and discover the hidden talents that they have. I too like very much the “after” shot of the memorial garden! 🙂
    Thanks for joining us at “My Sunday Best” meme.

  3. You’ve got awesome grands, Jesh. I love your grandson’s sweet smile. 🙂
    It’s wonderful when plants grow and do their thing to change a scene once sterile to full of life.

  4. We have the same feeling about our view from the front porch. Each season makes it look and feel different. Summer everything is green, fall we get the beautiful turned leaves on the maples, winter brings snow (sometimes) and spring has that beautiful bright green of the deciduous trees. Different times of day have different lighting. So much to enjoy from the same view like your Huntington Library Garden shot. – Margy

  5. I really liked the changes to the memorial garden over time and how nature wove into magic wand over the human hand. I much prefer the grown out, scruffier version.
    Seeing your photo of the hibiscus has me worried. I planted two yellow hibiscus out the front and have completely neglected them. I’m not sure that they’re still alive. I hope it’s not the case of the plant killer strikes again.
    Meanwhile, I bought two lavender bushes a few weeks ago as well as a primula annual when I went out for lunch with a friend for my birthday. They are still alive but need to be planted. I have a worm farm so we have some fabulous dirt. It just takes a bit to get everything moving around here.
    Best wishes,
    Rowena

  6. Yep, the would-be painter seems more interested in, or perhaps paranoid about, the photographer than the paining 😉 On the first two photos – Years ago I experimented with taking the same photo once a month every month for a year. It was interesting, but that was during the film days and I have no idea where the photos are… I need to try it again – things change.

    1. Think, its more a game – he and his grand father are buds:)
      A spectacular landscape of a very interesting detail in nature would be great for that experiment! Thanks for hosting!

  7. Yes, same spot taken at different times of the year is a great idea. I want to do a 4-seasons photo series like that myself but I just don’t have the patience to wait that long 😀

    1. I hear you! patience is not the only thing – it’s also the location. This one is a 7 hour drive, and the last part on freeways like that of Toronto’s -can we think of more reasons? 🙂

  8. Hello, love the water feature at the garden. The hibiscus is beautiful. Cute shot of the young painter. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, wishing you a happy weekend!

  9. What a cute future painter 🙂 Hibiscus is stunning and so is the last scenery. Wishing a beautiful weekend.

  10. Good idea to take the 2 photographs of the garden. The gardening would have know when he designed and planted the garden that the overflowing plants would have soften the concert area and sometimes we just have to wait patiently to have the whole picture. Good to encourage young artists. I am back from my travels at least for a little while so thank you for any comments during that time when I could not comment. Have a fabulous weekend.

  11. Its nice that your grandchild inherited your artistic bent ! …. I take pics of the same thing all the time because it looks a bit different; that is the joy of digital! (Imagine back in the day wasting all that film!)

  12. Nice to see that you sneaked into the photo as well. I like the second photo of the water/garden better. The living things are growing and softening the look.

  14. I like the photo of you and the would-be painter! Santa Inez looks like a pretty spot. Not sure I’ve ever been, but I’m sure I’ve driven by. Time for a stop!

  15. You know I take lots of photos of the same thing over time. Why, because as you say, they look different from the last time I was there and just because it pleases me to do so. Great collection of images. Have a great weekend.
