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.
Autumn Roses (35 images): The long record heat wave ended. The low clouds rolled in. Perhaps there will be an autumn here. The late roses glowed in the dark. ~ Saturday, September 17, 2022
A Bit Subdued (30 images): Bougainvillea and hibiscus shouldn’t be subdued. They should be bright. This is Los Angeles after all. But on a cool September morning, with low clouds and no sun at all, Los Angeles wasn’t itself. Los Angeles became subtle. ~ Saturday, September 17, 2022
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.
