These four dudes are training for the Turkey Trot.
I don't run. In the words of my youngest, "Running is not good to me." So the dog, my camera and I headed over in the direction of the sunset. Here are some things we passed along the way. Y'know how I said Fall in SoCal signals the beginning of fire season? Here in the distance you can see the smoke from the Pendleton Base fire last week. (oh yeah, now there are a couple new fires on Pendleton, but this fire is the one from last week).
Here are a couple boat-y things.
I get a HUGE kick out of these next photos. To me, they embody the spirit of "Stop and smell the Flowers." Every time I've walked over in this area at sunset time, there's a full audience of bench warmers, kicking back and watching the sun set.
Wanna see the sunset?
One last shot as I head back to the van... Fires always make such eerie colored skies.
FYI ... These are all photos taken [last week] with my Canon Rebel. Last night [we returned for more training], I left the dog at home (he was soooo sad) so that I could actually go down on the beach (which doesn't allow dogs), and I hauled my heavy 5d along this time. Tomorrow I'll post a couple of those pictures, give a lame sunset photo tip, and ask your opinion on which set of images you like best (because once again, I'm completely unable to make up my mind).
