February 28

We have storage units in each of our parking spaces.  Have some type of storage space is SO nice, though I can’t wait to have a garage of my own that I don’t have to secure with a pad lock!

I’ve been noticing this picnic table and benches on the patio of our complex for a while now and finally took a picture today.  I like the geometric, repetitive shapes the legs create.

We have a bunch of palm trees around the campus at work.  I love the reminder that we live in beautiful, sunny Southern California!

This photo is a lesson on why you want to shoot with the lowest ISO possible.  Grainy-ness.  Yuck!

This is another part of our carports at our apartment.  Can you tell our apartment complex really wants to make sure everything looks nice?  Note the sarcasm.  Just over two months and we can finally be done as renters!

Spring is getting closer and closer!  John’s cactus is starting to flower already.  I’m sure in a few weeks it will be completely covered!

February 23

John has a plumeria tree.  I think it gets confused what season it is.  It started with the green leaves during the winter and now they’re starting to turn yellow and fall off.  It still hasn’t produce a single flower.  Maybe once it has a settled place in the ground (vs. a pot), it will start behaving like it’s supposed to.

This isn’t a very exciting photo…or a great photo compositionally, conceptually and content-wise, but it’s the one I took today of  a nail that was sticking out in our carport.  Rather than pull it out (I doubt it’s of any use like that), let’s just paint over it!

February 19 & 21

Today we went to John’s parents’ in Palos Verdes to celebrate his birthday with his family.  Since I missed taking a photo on Friday, I took two tonight.

The first is a tree outside their condo complex…I know it’s on the dark side, but I kinda like it that way.  I like the red/orange tones in the tree from the street light.

The second photo is a few of Los Angeles from the north end of the complex.  It was overcast so you can see the light reflecting off the low clouds.  I needed a tripod for a clearer photo, but I also liked the way it turned out a little blurry too.

Tuesday is John’s birthday, but it’s so much easier to celebrate on the weekend, so today was the celebration with my family (joint with my sister since her’s is on Monday).

I love John’s expression in this photo as he opens his gift from me and my sister.  We got him an hour-long flight simulator gift certificate – they even get to dress up in flight suits and this place has an “officer’s wives” club for people to watch while the guys play their games.  I’m excited to go and watch him!

Another one of my apartment complex.  I like these stairs mostly because of the shadows it creates from the light in the walkway.
