Photos From Last Weekend

I usually try to think of a theme or topic for blog posts, but drawing a blank for this post!  The photos I want to share are pretty random, other than they were all taken last weekend in either 29 Palms or Fullerton.  So without further ado...
Old School House in 29 Palms.  There's a nice display and gift shop on site.
Worth a visit if you're in the area!
Old Auto Club sign from the Morongo Valley area
Moon over JT
Church on Utah Trail in 29 Palms
Narcissus flowers
Water drop off Desert Willow leaf 
Backyard rose - used my macro lens and tripod because of low light
Same Rose, different angle and texture.



Happy Macro Monday, and have a great week!!

  4. Great selection! My favourite is the church steeple with the branches in the foreground! I love the contrast between the straight lines and the organic shapes...

  13. I love the second to last image of the rose - the colors, details, and selective focus are all terrific. I should use my tripod more.

  17. The Banning sign made me think about the time I was trying to get a teaching job in the 70's. They said there were openings in the "B" cities, Blythe, Banning and Barstow. But I found a job in another "B" place, Bellflower. Not quite as far out of the city. - Margy
