History Repeats Itself

I came home yesterday and was doing something and I looked outside and the light was great.


So I went outside and started taking pictures.


I knew I was in trouble because the shutter speed was slow, but my silly tripod adapter was not on my camera because I had been taking fricking high speed pictures the night before and there was not enough time to go inside and find and mount the plate.


So the pictures were all blurred. Double line all around. Mild curses.


However, tonight had another great sunset, with similar good light and I had planned ahead and had the tripod all ready and was running around like a maniac.


And here is what I got. This is my front yard. I don't like straight lines as much as curved lines so when I got ride of all the grass in the front yard, this is what I did.


If you read all of this, my sympathies.


The tree is a Chinese Pistashe tree. I like it. It grows slowly and has great (for Southern California) color.
