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.
A Few Good Roses (25 images): Los Angeles is dormant. No roses anywhere for a few more weeks, except for the standard and rather ordinary white roses here and there, and one persistent red rose that someone forget to cut back. This is a dismal time of year, but not completely dismal. ~ Saturday, January 28, 2023
Winter Close-Ups (25 images): Winter geraniums and those unstoppable South African daisies, and a bit of densely-packed alyssum. Hollywood was still ready for its close-ups. ~ Saturday, January 28, 2023
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.
