fluffy white clouds while driving in California

Story behind foto: As some of you may know, I live in Northern California (NorCal) and lately we’ve had some really ridiculous hot days. I am talking over 100 degrees for days in a row, luckily today’s in the high 80’s topping off at high 90’s. Anyway, several days ago on my drive home I noticed interesting cloud formations up above. I decided to whip-out my camera and document what I was seeing, mind you this was taken after work so around 5:30’ish pm. You should also know, when I see interesting cloud formations they always remind me of the opening scene in the Simpsons. “The Simpsons…” (that’s suppose to be the intro. song), can you hear it?

Hope you’re all having a great day, Happy Foto Friday!


Story behind Foto: Earlier this week I visited my parents, who still live in the same town where I grew up located in Northern California. As I was walking around the house admiring their garden and the variety of plants they have, I focused on a white patch covering the front of the house. I believe they are called Petunia’s and they’re a common garden flower, or seem to be. I thought they were gorgeous and for some reason they remind me of my father. Why? You see one of his favorite colors is white. I have vivid memories of him wearing white clothing during the summers of my childhood, or while I was still living at home. Anyway, here you have it – white Petunia’s from my parents’ garden. Enjoy!


Story Behind Foto: a couple of weeks ago went camping at Bear River Reservoir in Northern Ca. to celebrate our anniversary. The guys went fishing and I joined, here’s what I caught – no catch and release for me.
