Ornamental Kale

I spent a little time this morning in historic Duluth. Jeremy and I met some long time tweeps, checked out an eight week oil painters class, and just enjoyed a quiet morning on a street that wouldn’t be so deserted on a Saturday afternoon if it weren’t for the rain. Planted up and down the street is ornamental kale. I never expected that healthy green to have a sexy side. I may have to plant some of the Brassica oleracea in my garden at home this season.

Sunset

This is a sunset in New Mexico, captured using my trusty old point n’ shoot back in 2006. I’m in the market for another point and shoot for those days I don’t want to lug the DSLR around. I  scratched the lens of my Sony TX5 (which is a camera I totally recommend by the way ) and I need a replacement. I can’t find a lens replacement for the device and it’s not really very easy to crack open. I’m no stranger to opening and fixing my devices but I can tell this one is probably not worth my time.
