June 1- PAD Meetup
Got the pleasure of meeting up and chatting with
Since we both live in Bakersfield,
We might do it again : )
June 4- Cattle Ranch/Wind Farm
Took a drive up to the Tehachapi Wind Farms today.
In the distance is Mojave and the Antelope Valley.
June 6- A Simple Windmill
Today, no dramatic sky, no wind turbines,
no "Kessler Effect".
Just a simple, old fashioned windmill.
It probably hasn't worked in a while
but retains it's beauty in the context of the land
upon which it sits.
I had to go to California City on business today.
It's a town about 75 miles East of Bakersfield,
on the edge of the Mojave Desert.
I swear that many of the roads to people's homes are like these.
Good clouds for me : )
California City has one prison,
one landowners' resort,
one PGA golf course
and one stop light.
Trying to do a kind of
Ansel Adams thing here.
("I knew Ansel Adams.
Doug,you're no Ansel Adams")
Many people have commented
that I have pasted skies
or used HDR on some of
I'm not very good at
pasting into images and
I'm not real sure how HDR works
(although it looks intriguing).
Going out for an anniversary dinner tonight.
See you all on the flip side : )
June 10- Relax, it's Saturday
Had a great wedding anniversary dinner last night
and we are just enjoying the beautiful weather.
June 11- Chuy's
One of our favorite places in town
to have a snack and beer on Sunday afternoon.
Wilson and Stine Rd., Bakersfield.
June 13- Swing Kids
The Park at Riverwalk, Bakersfield
Okay, so it's a Sunday picture
on a Tuesday PaD. It's all I've got!
Work with me here, people : )
June 15- The Saturn gets gas
I've been awfully busy this week
with kids blowing placements right and left.
Had to make two trips to California City yesterday.
So, this was a fairly common sight for me this week.
The week feels like a blur.....
Don't know why I like selective color so much.
It feels like therapy when I paint back in the color.
Probably something Freudian : )
