We’ll be back to Africa tomorrow, but I was at the Ferry Plaza Farmers’ Market in San Francisco this morning and saw this display at Capay Organic.  Orange and red cherry tomatoes.  Black mission figs.  And flower centerpiece.  One of the many reasons I love the Bay Area.

So, as I wandered around the great Ueno Park with it’s shrines, museums and myriad other attractions, I saw a Peony show.  Cool, I thought.  I’ll go see it.  And maybe I’ll get a chance to shoot a flower or too.

But you had to wait your turn.  Because there were plenty of people taking pictures of the flowers.  And apparently people taking pictures of the people taking pictures of the flowers.  And then because this is extra meta, people taking pictures of people taking pictures of people taking pictures of flowers.  As I admitted up front, guilty as charged.

Made me smile.

Sitka. In the woods by the Sitka National Historic Park, where there are many cool totems. But just off the path, there was this group of tiny orchids. So many things surprised me about Alaska. Finding orchids there was just one more.

Anyhow, these are tiny.  Made me really wish I’d had my macro lens.
