We are always taking pictures in the backyard. I'm sick of the backyard. Not to mention, there are a lot of trees so if we don't hit the time just right we lose the light. After three tries in the backyard this past week, and losing the light each time (meaning, the light goes behind a tree or something), we decided we'd go to That Tree. The one right off of Kanan Road. This is a tree on a hill that, whenever we're on our way to a local restaurant or to Malibu, if we look on that hill we almost always see a photographer with a subject or two, shooting away. We even see photographers up there when it is raining.
There's a restaurant near That Tree. And because there are signs posted everywhere saying you can't park near That Tree, we thought we'd have some lunch and wait until the light was nearly just right and walk from the restaurant and up that hill and finally get some shots of this Honeycomber cap.
Yes, that's right. By the time we got up there, we lost the light! (It may have had something to do with the wine that we were lingering over. Oh well.)
And here are the two of us cracking up that yet again, we lost the light.
BTW: Here's what happens when the photographer you're with is armed with lighting equipment and you've lost your light.
