Some scenes of the chapel at St. Elizabeth of Hungary, one of my many homes away from home.
The other afternoon I spent a little time there.
Walking home, I came upon these incredible sunflowers, in the front yard of what seems to be a Buddhist temple or dwelling of some kind on North Lake Ave. in Altadena.
Juxtaposing the two sets of photos, they seem strangely similar--the colors, the softness, the light--and in some mysterious way connected.
Household hint: If you happen to spill a sugar-laden paper cup of coffee from Trader Joe's on your iphone5 while fumbling to put away your receipt and credit card post-checkout, and afterwards can't really hear an incoming call or voice message unless you put it on speaker--spray a little eyeglass cleaner on the top mic (that little oblong mesh screen), then give it a good scrub with your Sonicare toothbrush!
