Fire and Ice


For a while, I have been into muted colors but the saturated look has been ingrained in my DNA.  Old habits are hard to break.  And the saturated look has been my style for a very long time.  Initially I thought I would render this image in black and white but thought that it would better convey my vision of fire and ice, which is how it looks to me: Steely dried leaves separated with the orange ones.

Techie Notes:  Taken at the foot of a transmission tower last Saturday while on our weekend walk with the dog.  Maybe that's why the colors look radioactive.  Beautifully illuminated by the morning sky over Chino Hills.

Hope you enjoy.

Karl Marx Lived Here

Tier, Germany (I believe)

Karl Marx lived here.  Really. That's what our tour guide said so. The house has been converted to a shopping building. I guess capitalism prevailed. 



Notice the crucifix in one of the room.  A bit odd for Marx to have one.


Hope your day is going well.
