That's one of my favorites. I had a calendar of pictorialist images last year and that was in it.

No strong wind, no storm but a mild weather here. Sun is shining , 14 celcius degrees and Istanbul is so beatiful as usual.
We have some technology here :
That was yesterday. Today bright, sunny upper 60's

I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.
Some rain fell at SeaTac (the regional airport that collects the official statistics for Seattle) this morning.
That officially puts us over the top as the single wettest March on record ever. We've had something like three times the normal rainfall. It has rained just about every day this month. One thing I don't worry much about is using water to wash film and prints.
All of those global warming heads-in-the-sand deniers? Better pull your heads out so you don't drown. The water table here is rising. Warmer air holds more water, and on average rainfall increases. Along with storm frequency and severity.
Although previous logging appears to be an aggravating factor, this month's non-stop rainfall was the triggering factor for this tragic event about 30 miles (48 km) north of me.
I've driven on Highway 530 around that very bend in the North Stillaguamish River many times. A family friend was born and raised in Oso, and still has relatives there. (I hope...)
"When making a portrait, my approach is quite the same as when I am portraying a rock. I do not wish to impose my personality upon the sitter, but, keeping myself open to receive reactions from his own special ego, record this with nothing added: except of course when I am working professionally, when money enters in,—then for a price, I become a liar..."

Here in the Windy City (Chicago) it's extremely windy and warm - 60's, but as usual, there's snow in the forcast.
Mid 40s here yesterday. It was the first day since October I didn't freeze my ass off and get snowed on.
Finally, So Cal is getting a bit of rain and, more importantly, the sierras are getting the snow we desperately need too. Not much, but we'll take what we can get.......

I read that a flurry of moderate earth quakes have been recorded in the Los Angeles area recently, a reminder of the notorious San Andreas fault. Has anyone been effected by these?
“The contemplation of things as they are, without error or confusion, without substitution or imposture, is in itself a nobler thing than a whole harvest of invention”
They've been on a different fault, but as you say, a reminder. Where I am, about 50 miles away, I felt the first one. It was a sharp jolt, then some shaking with a rolling sensation, 8 or 10 seconds total.
