I'll be back in 9 days -- Re-runs in my absence

I'm off on vacation, exploring the mid-California coast, eastern California, the Alabama Hills, Bristlecone Pine, Death Valley, and as far into Nevada as I dare venture, but I'll be back October 1 hopefully with a lot of new photos from my adventure.

Sooooooooo, I have scheduled 30 "automatic" posts for the 30 days of September. Didn't want you to forget about the blog while I was gone.

Here are two more KittyBLOG editions:

When I posted this shot yesterday I wondered if I was going to be able to come up with any similar "new" photos to fill out the blog today...

...and after a brief search this morning I realized I would have to fall back on previous work. Normally, everything you see here is new, unless otherwise noted. Keeps me busy, or as my grandmother used to say; "no rest for the wicked". This was "shot" May 5, 2008 at Alpine Dam on my beloved Mount Tamalpais.

And I "shot" this April 20, 2010. Which reminds me of a little story Brigitte Carnochan related to our class of bookmaking students a while ago -- a story about Ruth Bernhard, who evidently hated hearing people using the terms "shoot", "shot", and "shooting" SO much that she demanded that anyone who used those words in her presence pay 25 cents, which she collected in a mayonnaise jar and donated to charity when the jar was full. Anyway, Ruth Bernhard died years ago but by now I suppose I now owe that mayonnaise jar some serious cash.
