Photo taken at Lake Merritt in Oakland, California.
Far and away my true love lies
Just beyond the hill
And many a day I long for arms
That would hold me tightly still.
But far and away the grey gull flies
Quite far beyond the hill
And brings sweet memories back to me
Of a love that lingers still.

Some images may appear to be so similar as to be the same, however, if you look closely, they are not. Some show more, or different, reflections than others, or show more of the inside structure of the shop. Enjoy!
I took this photo of Purple Fountain Grass against the bright blue of the hood of a parked car this afternoon. To my surprise, when I looked at the photo this evening, I discovered that there was the reflection of clouds on the hood of the car. I’ve played around with the color a little bit, both to emphasize the contrasts, and to have a little fun. But this isn’t far off from the original. The striking blue of the hood of the car was what made me think of creating an angle for the shot that would show the fountain grass against the car.
*Look closely in the bottom right hand corner and you will see the curve of the hood of the car. Look in the lower left hand corner and you will see some white in the background. That is one of the headlights.
