My hair's getting long, but not long enough to tie into a ponytail, which is my intention in this time when we avoid barbers. You can see how long my hair has become in the selfie I posted today. In it I sit at my desk...
...working on my laptop, my immense desk towering over me and clutter filling the space that is not filled by electronics. I chose black and white for this composition as I do for all my best selfies. It's unique because...
...I show myself from the back, a trick I mastered by resorting to the ten second timer in one of my cameras. I don't know how I feel about this photo -- perhaps you have something to say. I'd be very interested.
The temperature is going to break the mid-nineties, meaning that I won't be leading a hike this weekend. And so goes an opportunity to take more pictures.

Places have been greener than they usually are...
...in this season thanks to the heavy rains we had this winter. Bolsa Chica and the San Joaquin Marsh were lush. The marsh was especially verdant when I visited it with a #Meetup group two weeks ago. I was planning to visit...
...a dryer landscape on Sunday, Black Star Canyon. The trip did not excite me but I have found that reaching my destinations had often changed how I feel about photographing them. The frustration of not getting out for most of the time...
...makes me see old places in a new way - almost as if I have never visited them before. When I examine the new photos more closely, I discover birds that I had not seen when I took the shot, such as white-faced ibises.

Joel Sax shared a photo with you from the Flickr app! Check it out:
Tomorrow I'll try to remember to tell you how I know this is a snowy egret and not the other white egret in our area, the Great Egret. It doesn't have to do with size though that can help as a field mark. The things I use cinch the identity.
