Fungus Green

Fungus Green
It's been an incredible week for picture taking. The fog was irresistible.  Every morning I was up and out first thing.  The fog had turned to high clouds today but it still makes for nice light.

Today I took the dog down to the Berkeley Marina.  She got caught in the riprap and I had to go fish her out.  Bloody dog.  Literally.

 The limits of my little camera were a problem -- not able to close the lens down enough for the long depth of field and (always a problem for me) missing the image when the dof is short. Sigh.

The Fish Table (see prior post) is my favorite fog photo. I'm trying to decide which is my second fav from the week. This one:

a little rotted fruit eye candy?  Or this one:

This photo of my clogs got more views on Flickr than any other from the week.  Fetishists.  Sheesh.

But spring is in the air and the colors are small and tender. It was a good week.

Being an unemployed mom made it possible for me to return to my first love: photography. I'm generally a crafty sort; love to knit, cook, make cards, you name it. I love hanging with my kid and the conversations that ensue. My husband is a sweetie and my friends are the best. Not an irresponsible one in the bunch. I would love to hear your comments, especially on my photographs.
