I am enjoying the new growth on the avocado tree. It was trimmed two months ago, and the crew cut it back quite a lot. The new growth has been delightful. Mature leaves are as borings tea party Republicans. The leaves are dark green, and rather dense, also like tea party republicans.

This was late in the day as colors grow richer and glow as the sun provides a back light that makes ever new leaf beautiful. These were about thirty feet up on the tree. My Nikon Coolpix 510 made getting close ups easy. All those decades I hauled around three Nikons and forty pounds of photo crapola did a lot of damage to my shoulder and my neck. The Coolpix weighs well under a pound, and to me is as exciting as Halley Berries legs, if only I could remind myself why I'm looking at the lovely Ms. Barrie in the first place.

My models used to call "Pops", or "Harmless." I once escorted a model to her car because Hollywierd can be dangerous. She was a top model, and she was looking ahead to retirement at a ridiculously young age. She was dating a pudgy, little billionaire, who was a tall as her only when he stood on a pile of money. She was resigned to dancing with him while the few hairs on top of his head tickled her. I got her to her car, a Bentley, a two hundred thousand dollar boat, a gift from the munchkin and his money. She kissed me on the cheek. "Thanks for escorting me to to my car Pops, I'm really afraid of men." DAMN,! DAMN,! DAMN!. There is a sad saying about guys my age, "Silver in your hair, gold in your teeth, and lead in your pants." Sadly, all too true.

I got so much fun reading your intro this morning that I almost forget to check your image.
Love that term "photo crapola".......must add it to my repertoire.
I too have OA of neck and avoid carrying too such photographic weight, and when troublesome I always resort to my lightweight Sony NEX-7........a cracking wee camera.
Oh, and your backlit spring time avocado leaves do make such a statement: bright orange against the grey sky, and with storming shadows to boot.
