No Buckets to be Seen — CFFC

Hi all 😃 My entry for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Pail or Pale.

I haven’t got any pail pics, so had to make do with pale pics instead.

These fisrt two shots have a background made pale by haze & distance.

These next are pale flowers.

Normally vivid autumn colours made pale by frost.

De-saturated in editing.

…and finally, a normally vivid Malibu sunset made almost pastel by smoke from wildfires.

Above the Bustle — LAPC #102

Hi all 😃 here’s my entry for Patti’s challenge: A Quiet Moment.

These shots were taken 10 years ago when my wife & I were staying in Serra Canyon, Malibu, CA. Not far away is the rush of the Pacific Coast Highway, & the Malibu Country Mart at Cross Creek. As well at the hustle of the shops, seen in some shots is Pepperdine University, packed full of people striving to learn, & nearby the queues of surfers lining up for the perfect wave.

But, above it all is the Serra Hills, all fresh green now, sprouted out from still visible fire damage. Up here it’s quiet & serene, the ocean in the distance, & just the sigh of the wind (& occasional click of the shutter) to accompany you; many a quiet moment above the bustle 😃

Fan Of… #9 — Succulents
