Playing around with camera movement in my shade garden on an air-quality-red day in San Francisco. The skies are filled with smoke from the catastrophic Camp Fire burning in Butte Country, 180 miles away. Apologies to whoever commented on the image I deleted right before uploading this one...I didn't see the comments or I would not have deleted it.

For the PG101 Intentional Camera Movement Theme.

Beautiful, gentle, green waves of foliage. And I enjoy the touch of gold amid the green. Lovely work, Martha. Hoping for improvement for all the California folks in harm's way. #11736372
