49/365 – After the Rain

Yesterday the biggest storm in 12 years dumped some 4 to 5 inches of rain at the coast and inland valleys and between 5 and 10 inches in the mountains and foothills of Southern California. It was quite devastating here in Los Angeles and the damage in some areas is yet to be controlled. Today at our garden, the only sign of the storm were some drops of rain sitting on top of the plants. Here, an Agave Attenuata leaf adorned by drops of this morning’s rain.raindropsweb-dsc_0282

11/365 – “When Life Gives You Lemons…”

Shoot wet oranges! Thanks to all the rain we’ve been getting in Los Angeles lately, it’s been a bit of a challenge getting out to shoot daily. On the other hand, the rain is helping with our severe drought and our orange tree is proof of that. After a long period without producing any fruit, it seems to be back in business! Rain and gray skies are a drag for photography, but I’m excited to see our orange tree healthy again and happy to use its fruits as subjects.oranges-dsc_0996orangesweb-dsc_0967
