4th July, fireworks, California drought, French versus American fireworks displays?

it does seem a little odd, that a state stricken by drought and often rampaged by wildfires, allows the sale of fireworks, in the street, in some towns (but not others). It also seems really strange to me that, for the most part, the fireworks are sold for the benefit of various religious...

4th of July

This America flag-inspired ensign reflected beautifully in Percival Landing during Olympia's Wooden Boat Festival. I had to look this flag up, and learned that it's a yacht ensign; not for international travels, it can only be displayed in US waters.

Butterfly Kite

I'm really partial to monarchs.  Having grown up around the Great Lakes, I got to see their multi-generational migration each summer and fall, and I have great respect and fondness for them.  I thought this monarch kite looked so pretty glowi...

Wordless Wednesday: Big, Bang, Boom

Jul 1, 2014

Every American holiday, I celebrate with store-bought cupcakes appropriately decorated for the holiday. They come by the dozen and I buy the lot, even the holidays when I’ve been on my own.

Kite Festival, another view

This view looking out to the ocean probably gives a better perspective on the size of the display kites.  Those large stuffed animal kites always just hovered off the ground.  I'm sure people liked them, but as a photographer I found them to ...

It was a full day of music; Sacramento's music scene, new and more mature, were well represented at SacTown Rocks. And there were sightings of other local bands, out to support everyone else, not playing at this festival this year, but next year maybe?...

My Best Life, June, 2014: A Month of Emotion

June was a month of emotion, a month where I saw the end of eras. June was a month of spontaneous tears, trickles of emotion both quiet and forceful. It was a month of smiles, and hugs, and goodbyes. June was a month of mercurial emotion, a month I searched for and found gratitude...
