Since you must be tiring of sunsets, here`s a sunrise from my garden, taken while shooting tonight`s sunset.
There are a fair number of buds on this plant.
I also started pulling beets from the garden, btw.
On Planet Earth you can see last night`s sunset.
Have a great day.

Filet of Ruby

 17 + 18 (2)
Ruby fillets on a Saphire background.
I did tell you it was intense at my place.
I hope you are well prepared to view a month of these celestial jewels.
I am holding a chest of them.

This is the end of 2009 leaving a trail to the past.

Tuesday, January 26, 2010


Seeing as my yard is a font of weeds, weed, seed & treed, I figure I should be allowed to shoot anything there.
Here are a few grass stems contrasting the lowering sun.
If any of you have any ideas as to how you`d like the "Sunset Presentation" to be unveiled, please speak your piece.
Have a nice day.
You can also see how a week may be spent keeping Teri & I active during unseasonal rains, over on Planet Earth.
In the header, just the usual view from my deck.

One of my worms.
If I baste the reef with blood worms & mysis shrimp, the long tentacles grab the food out of the current & coil it down to the Day-Glo green tentacles which then direct it down into in it`s oral cavity in the center.
It`s always fascinating to observe.
Have a great day & remember, I`m still on my "Sunset Project".
I promise a mind blow on that one.
But no advance peeks.

Revisiting my reef, I shot the Purple Tipped Anemone with it`s little lights on.
I`m spending a lot of time on my Sunset Project, so stayed tuned (Beth).
On the other hand, AndiF, don`t fear, your "wake-up" shot is behind this post.
Have a great week ahead.

I`m just keeping up my supply of greenery & flowers for those of you so deprived.
I`m also working daily on my project to shoot every single sunset for a month.
I think I only missed one, when I went to see Avatar.
You`ll see them at month`s end.
I also included the pod I used for the "Seductress`s eyes & worked on it a bit more.

For those of you that are seasonally, greenery impaired, I`m posting some of the tropical looking plants on the Pond
Project grounds.
There are more beyond this.
I`m posting a little something for Boran2 on Planet Earth made from the same blossom pod as "Garden Fairy" & a kisser made from Olivia`s tulips.

One more thing, I went to see Avatar with Teri`s dad last Fri.
We saw it in 3D +
I ate some of my specialty herbal goodies while he went with the smokable 4th dimension.
Having not been to a movie theater in 15 years, I`m glad I chose this movie to break my cinematic fast.
Total mind blow.
As a big fan of 3D in photography, I was intrigued with seeing it in 3D.
I`ve never been to any movie twice, but tomorrow I`m taking Teri.
And I can`t wait.
Fabulous movie.
I`ll send "goodies" to any one who wants to go see it in 4D.

A few shots I took today while checking my project sites in preparation for some major rainstorms that are rolling through here for the whole week.

A little fairy I made from seed pods I shot today, with green leaf lips.

Sometimes while hiking around my area, I come upon a little something that reminds me of other images in my archives. I often use the memory to compose my present shot.
Tomorrow; what memories are made from.

I call this "BIRD FEEDER CREEK" because I often see Blue Herons wading in the waters there.
I will be hiking up to the headwaters of this creek at the end of the month, & will post the surprise origin at that time.
Have a great day & keep a thought for the people in Haiti.

Today Andy walked up on me, shooting this marvel of evolution.
I told him I would post it on the blog just for him, in it`s raw form.
I should let Teri tell you about Andy, but that would maybe make him blush.
Here`s a favorite of his, "Bird of Paradise".
I did post one beyond it with a contrasting background.
Enjoy, & don`t feel bad about our local weather, we`ll probably get hit with some extreme conditions soon.
(The above statement is basically to adjudicate my guilt on our heavenly weather)
Be safe & warm.

This little guitar was basically a little workshop on building a working instrument with parts found around the house, a guitar neck from a neighbor & a few parts from a music store.
Total time 3 hours.

The Stewart Gibson

A new guitar is about to be unveiled to the world today.
It`s modeled after a "Canjo", a banjo made with an oilcan.
I built it with Bligh today.
To see more images of this soon to be famous CrackerBacker, click the image & check the little slide show where you can see/hear Bligh play it.
Have a nice day.

Bligh, Guest Blogger,
Here`s another capture by Bligh.
You know where to look for more images on this voyage.
Enjoy, & have a great day.

BLIGH, Guest Blogger
Bligh, Teri` son, visiting from Australia, & his lovely girlfriend Eleanor here from London, just came back from a three day excursion through Yosemite, Oregon & down back to Malibu.
He will have many of his terrific images posted here for the next few days.
WooHoo, a few days off.
In this image, a very rare occurrence, showing the usually quite wary Coyote, tolerating human presence within feet of it`s it`s food find, while a con artist crow tries to cheat him out of at least a few scraps.
Enjoy, & do come back tomorrow for grand vistas & another noble forest dweller.

Fall Colors

The leaves on my Sycamore tree.
Please check out little Finn on Planet Earth & the other shots behind the header.
Have a great day on this first Monday of the New Year.
