Here I will share my photography, which usually inspires many of my art projects.

It is early October, but Irina the cat continues to explore and enjoy life. It is refreshing to see a cat just enjoying life, and I always do think Irina is a smart girl.

Here Irina is walking on a small brick wall.

Here is some of the photography that I took during my walks on August 14, 2014.

The video above shows the sights that I encountered on my walk.

I love hiking in Southern California whenever I get the chance. These lovely pictures remind me of how I need to go on a hike real soon.

Over the last few days I have been taking pictures of the sunset and the moon in the sky around that time of day.  I enjoy taking photographs during sunset, but my favorite ones tend to be more vibrant.  Unfortunately, none of the sunsets have been spectacular like the one I encountered last Friday night.

The rainstorm has finally passed, and I decided to take some pictures of the clouds in the sky this morning.  I was hoping it would be a bit more dazzling like after some rain storms, but the clouds were interesting in a more muted way.

 

I also took some pictures of the liquidambar tree and a honeysuckle bush.  On the sidewalk I spotted a green liquidambar pod that had fallen after the rainstorm, which I thought looked quite beautiful.

I love to take photographs when I go on a walk in the evening near a field here in Southern California.

In this post I am also included a video I created of the Liquidambar styraciflua pods, which are green and still hanging from the tree in early August.

I also created a video of a bird flying above the field where I like to go for walks.

Here are some pictures I have taken of the sunset here in Southern California over the last two days.

This video is a combination of footage I took from two different nights of the sunset.
