Oh, my stuff is absolute crap. I can hardly bear to look at it.

But it's mine, so I have a soft spot for it.


If your photography is only a quarter as good as your writing, then it's far from crap. But, it's just my opinion so take it for what it's worth.

Not bad at all Mark. I don't peg you as someone with self esteem issues. :)

Mark

I finally got the time to really look at the photos you posted. I've gotta ask a question.

Do you have a photo that you would consider your Pepper 39?

Lori - That bit of road is actually just a maintenance access for a flood control dam. It sits about 100 yards south west of my house.

Tim - Thanks!

I'll have to think about that one. I would never compare myself to Weston, but I appreciate the thought.

The lizard is implied by the tar repairs, but it is there.

Or, on another level, the entire road is the lizard, with scales and everything. A matter of interpretation, but the material is there to be interpreted. A fine image all around.

The very world in which this vignette exists is balanced on the back of a lizard. Now ask how big the lizard is?
