"After the Storm" (12-2-14 026v2) was taken just as the recent rain storm we had was ending. Happily, we're due for another soaker in a day or two. Of course, one worries about mudslides in fire ravaged areas, but we sure do need the rain. Back to the pic: this staircase is just a matter of yards from my front door. So I often hobble over there at the end of a photo walk to look at it, and the courtyard and palms. Taking pix of an area like this presents an even greater challenge now since I use my wide angle lens camera almost exclusively. (Can't cart both cameras, and the wide angle one takes better pix overall.) I have to do even more camera tilting and fussing at getting vertical lines in sync than ever. And with the tiny view screen on a compact digital camera (not to mention my aging eyes) that's saying something. However, it's also part of the fun of it all. What's life without a few creative challenges.
