yolo in september...

today...we went up to yolo basin...and drove through the grounds.  

since it was a weekday...and we went in the middle of the day...there were no crowds.  in fact...we only saw two other vehicles the entire time we were there...and i think they were people that worked there.  

we saw quite a few egrets and a few heron...but as you can see...they saw us too.  the only other thing we saw a lot of was dragon flies.  i really wanted to see the pelicans...but i'll have to do a bit of research to find out when they are most likely to be there.  

another item that was plentiful were the organic sunflowers...and we know how much i've been captivated by them lately.  

on the way home...we stopped off in suisun to see some sculptures that ingrid had shown me once before.  i was very excited to see that there was now a camera sculpture...and i wanted a photo of it.  

when we were leaving...a gentleman came out of the house...and i asked if he was the sculpture.  he was.  he gave me his card...and a brochure...and told me of an open house they'll be having in november.  i plan to be there!  

tomorrow...i'll be attending a photography meetup.  stay tuned! 


  1. Cool! I love that camera sculpture!

    Very good combination of textures, and good combination of colors.
