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 😃
Hi all 😁. Todays Fan Of… was inspired by a comment I was writing on a post by Aletta – nowathome for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Gardens. Aletta had some great pics of succulents, and my comment was that “I was a huge fan of succulents”, hence the current post. These first photos are from my time in Malibu.
Hi again 😁 Todays Fan Of… is combined with Cee’s Flower of The Day Challenge. I have gone for the Bird of Paradise. I had never really seen these elegant flowers until my wife and I took our first trip to California, and then as is the norm, started seeing them everywhere. Big Fan Of these flowers!
