The Saturday Botanicals

JUST ABOVE SUNSET – as a commentary site – has gone dark, at least for now. For now there’s just occasional photography, and each Saturday that would be botanical photography –

Increasing Intensity (35 images): Spring is well underway. Summer is coming soon. The local roses get more intense each week. And now more of them are violent red. ~ Saturday, April 23, 2022

High Contrast (40 images): The light was right. Everything in the local gardens was in high contrast this day. That’s why the film industry started here and remains here. The light is always right. ~ Saturday, April 23, 2022

About Alan

The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish. The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching. The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.

    Thank you for this inspiring weekly display of beauty👏

    Miss your commentary. You are one of the best synthesizers I’ve ever read. But you can’t keep writing when your heart isn’t in it. I’m a retired political reporter from Oregon-a career of more than 30 years and I gave it up and moved to Friday Harbor just to keep my sanity.
