Mary Avenue Bike Bridge

I like this shot better than the black and white ones. Sometimes you have to go back a few times to get the shot you want.

Erin was looking in Panoramio and noticed that I didn't have a photo of the museum in Heritage Park. I remembered taking a photo of it a while back, so I dug through my archives and found it. Yeah, I said, I have one -- but the light wasn't very good, so I didn't post it. Well, she thought my coverage of Sunnyvale would be seriously deficient without a photo of the museum. So I went back recently and got a shot just after sunset. As a bonus, there were flowers in bloom nearby.

Mary Avenue Bike Bridge

I finally got a chance to return to the Mary Avenue bike bridge to take more photos. I got two that I liked, and couldn't decide between them, so I posted them both. The first was taken with an IR filter; the second was taken at a normal exposure, then desaturated to black and white by selecting only the red channel, which made the sky dark.

Split Melon

A little too much water for the crenshaw melons this year. We backed off the drip system, and the honeydews didn't suffer the same fate.
