Summer 2008 Photos (4 of 4)

Walking Stick.
I opened the hood of the car to check the oil and found this walking stick. I moved him to a safer location. (Larger version)


Lava stone.
A piece of lava found on a morning walk. I choose not to resist the temptation to pick up various pieces to weigh them and feel their texture. Hopefully, before I die I'll stand on the slopes of an active volcano or near a hot lava flow. (Larger version)


Hope of a summer shower.
Hope of a summer shower. We received less rain this summer than in previous years but the clouds were always beautiful. (Larger version)


A crop of birdseed.
Each summer, after the monsoons begin, birdseed in the yard sprouts and feeds rabbits. (Larger version)


Sunflower.
Late in the summer this sunflower grew in a container that had been planted with peppers. We never watered it but it did well. (Larger version)


Break time.
Break time. When the temperatures are near 100 degrees its enjoyable to take a break at the end of the day. (Larger version)

When you do make it to the volcano, you might want to keep a bit of distance from the lava.

(I visited the volcano when I was in HA, back in the 60s.)

Nice shots.

Is that your cromagnon look reflected in the wine glass?
