Photo Challenge: Day 3


In 2005, we were high above the San Diego ZOO at Albert’s Restaurant.  In back of George is a soft wall of Eucalyptus trees blowing in the wind.  Today these trees have a bug, and they are dying.  There is no cure yet.

I shoot with an old Canon PowerShot A650is that I drop often, unfortunately.  I manipulate the images with Photoshop Elements 10 using a vague memory of old style darkroom techniques.  Much to my pleasure, local colleges and universities are beginning to teach film photography again.



  • Himself:  Vastly better.  His brain is working again.

  • Herself:  Pool, books…where I discovered the shelves moved all around, and a new rule that nothing was to go on top.  Books fall behind and this makes the boss mad.  Hand PT tomorrow for the first time.

  • Reading:  ”Bodies” the catalog of the Bodies show.

  • Balance:  Not letting anything get to me.

    1. Good for you for hanging in there on the exercise. It's been a bit unpleasant for walking outside with the dog, and she and I are both missing it!

    2. Too bad about the Eucalyptus. Does the bug affect all types?

    3. I have been pushing hard on lifting weights...free weights and leg weights and I do feel so much better. I hate it and I really have to pull myself into place with a rough hand!
