The Day Before Next Year

Not on the prowl as much this year so made an effort to cover some familiar territory around Punta Uva before next year arrives.

Every year I take a picture of an egret at this spot in front Cabinas Punta Uva and wonder if it may the same bird or a member of his family who has inherited this prime hunting real estate.

I am always impressed with unusual relationships of leaves and plants and their organisation on a canvas of earth.

Delicate and probably a dangerous edible.

From this plain old Pod comes forth a most elegant bloom which is reaching out in subtle glory to all takers. So many varieties of orchid speak to their survival in blazing color and delicate shape.

This is Bette Middler of the orchid chorus.

My imagination runs wild before sliding onto the floor in my bare feet and imagining what might surprise me with my next step.

At last off to the party, rain and all. They start their parties at 11 and they go to 4. Off and into 2015. Happy New Year.

  1. Hello Bill, happy new year and thank you for your good wishes. I eeally enjoyed your photography. It is beautiful and I love the short narritives. It should not be difficult to make a very attractive and meaningful book from that. This end of year Xmas and NY is nice in a way because of meeting old friends and hanging out doing nothing much otherwise. It always closing with our NY brunch for people on Main Street. We provide the champis and i make everybody omelets while they bring nice things to go with that. Today 24 omelets. Elisabeth is now cleaning up and I am having a cuppa and stare over the dikelands musing over what the new year might bring. I ll be writing you a proper letter soon, meanwhile you keep well and keep your pecker up (?!) best and with a hug. Dick
