It was a good weekend. It was the 40th anniversary
of the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts show.
The show is usually only on Sundays, but since it was a special occasion
some of the artists were out there on Saturday too.
Unfortunately it was a big weekend for other things in town.
A car show and a Volleyball tournament combined with
temperatures 13 degrees above made for a slow weekend.
The good thing is, I am not just out there for the sales. :-)
I love talking to people about my photography.
Hummingbirds in particular seem to bring about
great conversations. I have heard wonderful stories
about peoples' interactions with these amazing creatures.
Today I talked to a very nice couple visiting from Germany, they had
been traveling the coast and seemed to be having a wonderful time.
We talked about Big Sur and
Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park
where they had been. And the wonderful hummingbirds they had seen.
The man told me how he had just mentioned to his wife how the perfect job
would be to travel up and down the California Coast and
take pictures of nature and wildlife, and there I was!
So today's photo of the day was his choice. From the selection
of Hummingbird prints I had at the beach, this was his favorite.
