Walking about my San Diego neighborhood, I see food growing everywhere—on personal property and in public places. Take your pick: Apples, avocados, grapefruits, lemons, lettuce, oranges, pomegranates, pumpkins, squash, tomatoes, and watermelons—to name a few. Yesterday’s grape sighting adds to the list, but with surprise. I frequently walk by the location, several times a week for at least 10 years. How could I possibly have missed seeing clusters during past growing seasons?
I used Leica Q2 to capture the Featured Image—and companions that are presented to provide some locational context. Vitals for the first, aperture manually set for all: f/4, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 28mm; 1:04 p.m. PDT, yesterday. You really want to click the link and zoom in.
The second photo looks across the street to the house where lives (or lived) Pee-Pee, who was profiled in my “Cats of University Heights” series on Halloween 2016. Vitals: f/5.6, ISO 100, 1/400 sec, 28mm; 1:05 p.m., yesterday.
The final shot shows how the grapevine (if right term) is positioned between sidewalk and street and not on someone’s property. Vitals: f/8, ISO 100, 1/125 sec, 28mm; 10:17 a.m., today. Location: Meade between Cleveland and Maryland.
