I know, I know, a sunset usually features the sun. But when the sun was setting during last night's dog walk, this beautiful reflection was in the east. I couldn't resist trying to capture it with my iPhone and Camera+ app.
Just what the doctor ordered: a pleasant walk with my dogs and a beautiful view.

I was looking at the light this evening when I noticed something iridescent between me and the sun. It was a spider's web cast in a dead limb that had tangled in the mulberry tree. The sun was sinking pretty quickly - you can see that since the iridescence is at 3 and 9 if the web were a clock. In the next one it's at 7 and 2 and the colors have changed.

The heat and humidity are back after a surprisingly cool weekend. In fact, it was a shame to be inside the weather was so nice. Anyway, ferns make me think of cool forests, where the light is dappled and every foot step is dampened by a carpet of pinestraw or leaves.

My mojo is apparently at the coast on the beach under an umbrella, sipping a fruity drink with a paper umbrella. And probably just had a lunch of fresh oysters chased by a plastic cup of draft.
I get points for composition, but fail on execution on this one. And here's the thing: it's the best of the lot from July 4.
Cotton never lets me photograph her straight on. Once she sees the camera, she walks toward me. Tonight in a rare fit of cooperativeness, she obligingly looked at my left hand as directed. Too bad I didn't get the focus sharp on the eyes. Or anywhere else for that matter.
Try, try again.

With the prospect of a long weekend in front of me, I was happy to stay in and read, finally get Photoshop loaded, watch Covert Affairs On Demand and play with my camera. I'm contemplating taking photos of fireworks Monday night.
I love seeing the red, white and blue on the 4th weekend. It's also Peachtree Road Race weekend...I'll probably walk the dogs over early and watch some of the runners make their way down Peachtree Street.
Wishing you some red, white and blue.
