Bleaugh: Picture Post  
Haven't felt "posty" lately. But I've got a bunch of pictures from driving around Sunday with jason_brez and from going on a walk Monday with thudpucker and I'm tired of them mentally poking me.

Firstly, some mountain shots. Taken from Mulholland, I believe.

Told you L.A. was green at the moment.

Everything would have actually come out more vivid, but it was a pretty overcast day.

Can anyone tell me what these are? They are EVERYWHERE in the local mountains. They're like a beautiful happy floral scourge ^_^

This is from the walk on Monday. I just liked the way it turned out.

A shot where you can actually SEE the itsy tiny chihuahua. He was a really funny toy.

Some of my favorite flowers, growing in the park. They have a neat smell, that's almost salty. Once again, I have no idea what these are.

Besides the rat toy thing, we also met a big friendly dog named Jake. This is the best shot we got of him because the batteries were going. That reminds me, I gotta change them.

And speaking of cleaning off my desktop, here's a quiz result...

Although I'm not absolutely positive, I believe the yellow flowers are either wild mustard, or Indian tobacco plants. I can't tell you which without seeing a better shot of 'em, though.

I thought you might say that... I took a few more shots just in case...



And I thought the scrubby stuff in the front of shots 1-4 were wild mustard? This stuff is way bigger....

Going for a drive, a walk and taking pictures! What a great two days, beautiful pictures.

I like the one with the sun and the dog too. I had no idea you had sights like that around LA!

We've got everything! It's been said you can go skiing, go to the beach and go to the desert all in one day here. Which is true, but you have to get up early, which I'm not very fond of ^_^

And I'm alllways pimpin' L.A., I ought to get some sort of kickback from the tourism department!

Who's the girly in your 'bitter sunshine' icon? She's purty...

Re: Question...
I don't know, but yeah, isn't she great? I found her at getty images.

Beautiful pics. I am jealous that your mountains look that great right now. Our mountains here still have snow on them, and that is most of the time, but I am ready for spring!
Frittersfritters on April 8th, 2005 02:24 am (UTC)
I'm sure between the snow and such, and how dry it gets out here, your mountains probably look better than ours most of the time. Besides, snow has it's own prettiness. You should make a picture post, too!

I would except that we don't have a digital camera yet. I don't know what we are waiting for to get one..... $$$$ I guess. But one day.

But you are right, the snow is pretty right when it first falls and covers everything, but after a few days it always gets crusty and yucky.

I wouldn't snow, I'm snow impaired. And you can get a decent digi for under 80 bucks, you know.... or is that still too expensive?
montgomery5281montgomery5281 on April 9th, 2005 01:41 am (UTC)
I guess that is really not breaking the bank. But we are on a path to being debt free, so all my extra money goes to credit card bills instead of fun things. I just got paid today so maybe I will go look on Monday. I really do need one so I can take pictures of my "kids", then I can post them so you can see :)

Well if it's only a few months to being debt free I'd probably hold off, then. Can't hurt to start shopping so you know when there's a model with the features you want in your price range, though. If you just keep your eyes open, that way you can make sure you get a really great deal on one you really want....
montgomery5281montgomery5281 on April 9th, 2005 02:24 pm (UTC)
It is definetly more than a couple of months away (being debt free), I am crossing my fingers that it will happen w/ in the next couple years :)

I am going to take your advice though and start shopping around, that way I will now if I find a good deal and then I won't feel guilty buying one.

Dang, I'm sorry. Try it again, maybe?
Kimkimd on April 8th, 2005 05:08 am (UTC)
I didn't know you were into taking pictures too, fritters! I really like the 1st picture for the sky and the 3rd picture for the flowers and mountains. Maybe you could merge them ^^
Frittersfritters on April 8th, 2005 08:49 am (UTC)
I suck at photography, but I love taking pictures ^_^ And I'm cool with editing things in photoshop, but somehow putting 2 together feels like cheating somehow...
