I just spent 4 wonderful days in my hometown of Solana Beach, CA. I went to a long standing (25 years or more) August Birthday Bash with loads of family and friends. I ate great food. I had a facial. I stayed with my mom and she took me shopping here and close to doubled my wardrobe.
I took a total of 4 pictures!
I mean really. What's up with that? Not only that, I took 2 of the same flower and 2 of my mom in the same spot. This would be very big indicator that photojournalism is not one of my talents. So here are the best two of my four pictures.
My mom, Billie. I won't say how old she is but I'm 46 and she was not a teenager when she had me. You do the math. She is quite an inspiration to me and I am one lucky girl to have her. This photo is of her in the gateway to her courtyard. It is the house I grew up in and it keeps looking better and better. Nice!
Inside the courtyard is a climbing, viney plant thingy and these incredible flowers bloom on it. They open in the early morning, close in the evening and and then "adios" they are done. Maybe a half a dozen or so bloom each day.
