Random Frames

Sorting through photos from the last year recently, I found a few frames that slipped between the cracks. These are all photos that I like for one reason or another.

The first frame is from Red Rock Canyon, Nevada. It didn’t make it into the Red Rock post. I’m not sure why. The yellow flowers in the second photo, taken near Nuevo, California, are unknown to me, which isn’t particularly unusual. The third photo is a view of the east side of the Mission Inn in Riverside, California. I had an apartment on this side of the Inn in the winter of 1971-1972 when I first arrived on the West Coast. The forth photo was made in Sycamore Canyon. I thought of it as a “practice” frame when I captured it, but I keep viewing it, so I suspect there’s more to it than that.

The fifth view is from Anza Narrows. The buildings in the middle distance are in downtown Riverside. The far ridgeline is the San Bernardino Mountains, including Mt. San Gorgonio. The sixth view is  from Anza Narrows. The shadow is on Box Springs Mountain. Mt. San Gorgonio is obscured by clouds. The seventh photo is a night photo from my street in Riverside, California. I like the orange light from the streetlamps. The last photo is a long view is from Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument in Utah.
