WPP2017 – Week 11 – Depth of Field
|My dear friend came out for a visit for a couple of days. As we had spent the morning having breakfast on the way back from the airport and fussing around at cool little local stores, we finished the day by going for a wander at my beach. The entire beach seems to be a bleached graveyard for the trees and branches for at least a half dozen states and numerous islands.|
|Okay, so there are a few things that seem to resist the bleaching aspect of the beach, like this manzanita branch. We were fascinated with the knotted curls along the length like arthritic joints or maybe alien tentacles reaching out from the rocky blanket. Ooooh, “They Came From Below.”|
|And they insert their demonic spawn spores into the branches to wait for unsuspecting people to carry them home where they will mature and hatch and then possess the bodies of the people in the house, insert themselves into society and take over the world. They count on the fact that most people are looking to the skies for potential invasion, so are unsuspecting of what is below their feet.|
|Nature is just amazing in its ability to find a seat for new life in just about any place, on any surface. Such as a bleached out dead piece of wood that has washed up on the beach.|
|I do so like this house that just sits out all by itself on the bluff.|
|Its almost like a lifeless tree growing out of the pebbled beach on an alien landscape.|
|Quite the little battle of the goldfinches going on over the feeder. You would think there is more than enough to go around. It seems greed is not just restricted to humans.|
|It almost seems like it was an orchestrated plan to build such a linear, high tech building next to this particular sand of driftwood. Though, it seems there is one that is either rearing up in protest or celebration.|
|I was very proud of how well this one came out. I may have to work out the words of these three in their battle of the bulge.|
|Skeletal hands at the bottom of this sculpture beckoning you to look closer.|
|A weeping figure.|
|Could be a moosehead on the right there.|
Just cuz it was a cool little rusted thing.
Then we had the clouds at the house when we got back. We considered calling SETI or NASA, but opted to just watch it.
Painted skies in in the evening and morning are common. One would think they would cease to have the effect of taking your breath away after seeing them so often, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.
I’m pretty sure they were in a movie I saw. War of the Worlds maybe??
Its a very strange notion to look around yourself and realize that this is “your” home. It took well over 50 years for me to get to this point, a point I really never saw myself getting to. But, I am here and this morning I made my very first payment. Only 359 more to go! And the big question is, will I live to see the last payment made??? I do hope so.
