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.

The June Roses (40 images): The first Saturday in June was quiet, with no sun until late afternoon. The public rose gardens in Beverly Hills were quiet too. The roses were patiently waiting for the camera, waiting to show off in the soft diffused light, which they did. ~ Saturday, June 4, 2022

The New Desert (35 images): Everyone in Los Angeles had better get used to the worst drought that everyone west of the Rockies has ever seen, one that may never end. Water will be scarce from now on. No lawns. Dead gardens. But we will still have cactus in bloom. That’s a comfort. The transition begins. ~ Saturday, June 4, 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.
