We finally got around to spreading Baba's (https://steveinjapan.aminus3.com/image/2021-11-12.html) ashes along the Naches Peak Trail near Mount Rainier National Park. It was one of his favorite hikes due to the abundant wildflowers and spectacular mountain views. Mama thought she couldn't make the 3.5 miles or so loop, but as this photo proves, she made it with her smile intact!
So if you happen to trek that trail, take some photos for him!
I went back to Trinity Church, on Queen Anne Square in Newport, Rhode Island a few hours after sunrise.
As the sun was positioned right in the bell tower, I also noticed the light shining through the lampposts, as if they were still aglow from the night.
It is interesting that within a few minutes, lighting changes and this instance is gone.
Walking along the rocky beach, I saw this face staring up at me. I see a very stern, determined face staring back from under a tall helmet, probably with a chin guard. I darkened the outside to draw attention to the face, but have not modified any of the features.
On my walks along the small waterways near my home, I see non-degradable litter in the water and along the banks.
We must all ensure that we either, avoid using non recyclable products, or at lease ensure we dispose of plastics and non-recyclable so they do not reach our waterways.
Lachen is a small resort village in the state of North Sikkim, India. This is the view from our hotel balcony from our family vacation in April 2022.
The weather was cloudy, rainy, and chilly (7 deg Celcius in April). Sometimes these combination creates wonderful photo opportunities like this.
It is a very colorful village with every building (most probably a hotel) very well decorated from the outside. It is very enjoyable to take a walk over here with snow-peaked mountains on one side and a river flowing down.
This town is at an altitude of 8,500 ft and is used as a stopover to acclimatize before tourists visit Gurudongmar Lake at an altitude of 17,800 ft. Reaching Lachen takes almost a day (6-7hrs drive) from Gangtok which is the capital of Sikkim.
Foreigners don't usually visit this village. They are not allowed to travel farther north to the lake as it is very close to India-China international border.

Over a thousand Hells Angels took a road trip into Toronto to pay respects to one of their own who has passed away. One of Toronto's many nicknames is Hogtown, so all those Harleys seem applicable. I took this photo yesterday looking north on Carlaw avenue at Eastern avenue. (Why "Hogtown"? The city was home to several abattoirs where many pigs met their makers during the Victorian and Edwardian era and the nickname stuck around.)
I knew it was weak, but t hadi rained all day and was forecast to be cloudy over night, so I didn't recharge it earlier in the day. As I was ready for bed, I looked out the window and beheld a full moon. Setting up the camera for some test shots of the full moon (I had researched camera setting several days before), I prepared for a long wait...until clouds rolled in, obscuring the moon once again. So I packed up the camera and went inside...only to behold out my window the moon, already partially in shadow, Out I went to set up once again, as the sky got hazy and ground fog began to develop. This time I waited it out and while the sky was not as clear as I would have liked, I did get to watch the eclipse, snapping multiple exposures. Just as the moon was emerging from the earth's umbra, and things looked like they were peaking...the battery died.
The Shuswap has moods for all seasons. Shortly after this photograph was taken, the sheets of rain, white-caps on the rough waters and strong winds made life miserable for those who hadn't battened-down their sun shades!
As quickly as it has come, the photograph was "gone"!
White Rock is home. The sands are from childhood summers.
Like in other places with piers, the White Rock pier is iconic, and symbolic. Partially damaged by violent weather's forces, it was swiftly restored through local efforts and leadership.
North Sikkim road journeys are long but you come across so many waterfalls on the way. The hours spent on the road were the highlight of the trip. I don't think there is any other place with this high density of waterfalls.
This is because the drive to North Sikkim is all uphill and this is the east Himalayan region, where it either rains or there is melting snow coming from many hills, to form tributaries which further form local rivers like Lachen River and Lachung River, which further connects to Teesta River which further connects to the great Bharmaputra River.
Questa fotografia nella versione a colori riproduce Burlamacco e Ondina che sorridono."Sorrisi" perchè in questa foto ho voluto isolare i visi dei due personaggi per rendere più incisivo il loro sorriso. Burlamacco e Ondina sono le mascotte ufficiali del Carnevale di Viareggio ma qui ospiti del Carnevale di Gambettola.
Here we see Burlamacco and Ondina smiling. "Smiles" because in this photo I wanted to isolate the faces of the two characters to bring the attention to their smile. Burlamacco and Ondina have been the official mascots of the Viareggio Carnival since 1930. In this photo they are the guests of the Gambettola Carnival.
We decided to have a walk in this garden and I saw these plants standing there. I made a double exposure - one in a normal manner and the second one by turning my camera upside down. I do this trick quite often when I am shooting landscapes. The other thing is that I was doing action paintings 25 years ago and this picture comes close to it.
I saw this young boy supporting his father. When I was ready to take the picture his father was eliminated and left the track, so his son was not looking at the cyclists anymore but still supporting his father as he did not understood what happened. I was so disappointed that my photo was ruined, but I still took one. When I came home and was able to have a closed look, I realised the the picture I took was much better that the one I had in mind.
Mon projet [email protected] s’est terminé en 2012. En août 2022, nous avons perdu, Wolfgang et moi, deux généreux collaborateurs de ce projet, Alain Berger et Gilles Martineau. Je trouvais important de leur rendre hommage et de les saluer.
My project [email protected] ended in 2012. In August 2022, Wolfgang and me have lost two generous collaborators in this project, Alain Berger et Gilles Martineau. I thought it was important to pay tribute and greet them.
I went out yesterday evening to position myself along the edge of the incoming fog bank near sunset. As if on cue, this large hawk hovered above the landscape just long enough for me to grab one frame! A little divine help from above one could say :-)
This picture has been taken during a walk in the countryside near La Neuvelotte (Lorraine) France. During the hot days the air was without any haze and the sun went down around nine o' clock .There are no digital enhancements here, except for the shadows that needed a little lighting.
The setting reminds me of some of my paintings in the 90ies, but I must admit that the camera did a very good job here.
Cette pierre gravée je l'ai trouvée dans un petit village de Bretagne. Je ne connais pas l'histoire de cette gravure . Cette pierre était près d'une petite église.
This engraved stone I found in a small village in Brittany. I do not know the history of this engraving. This stone was near a small church.
School holidays with my grandson. Romey just came up with this lotus mandala on the spur of the moment in the beach sand which I found very creative. I asked him later where he had seen a lotus mandala before and he said he didn't know what that was and he was surprised when I showed him one online.
C'est la vitrine de la boulangerie de ma rue. On voit d'ailleurs la gare au fond en haut. J'ai ensuite pris une 2e photo d'une affichette. J'ai voulu faire une photo très graphique.
This is the showcase of the bakery on my street. We can also see the station at the bottom at the top. I then took a 2nd photo of a poster. I wanted to make a very graphic photo.
