Oh my, bears visiting one's trash can?!! Scary stuff, Sibil. But I do love your relaxed attitude about it.
Those are pretty mushrooms!

OldCrow, I really like that shot. It's just such a vibrant and lively shot with the colours, the blue sky and the people at the bottom. Well done!

Colours are not complimentary but complementary.

Good Grief! Where in SOCal?
You'll be needing Animal Control!

Sibil wrote in post #17225319 (external link)
We are at the foothills of Angeles National Forest. It's a common occurrence for us. Animal control, sheriff, or the department of fish and game won't do anything. They won't even come out. They just tell us to stay inside until the bear leaves. Of course the photographer me has to go out and snap pictures. I have a bunch of pics of bears raiding our trash cans. We have learned to co-exist with the wildlife around us.

It's interesting, our "view" of Southern California is often centered around the Los Angeles Metro area, of course, the millions of people and such, but wandering around SoCal as a whole there is a ton of variety, every thing from what Sibil describes to the amazing desert areas and also the Sierra Nevada mountains, the list goes on!

Well with the drought and all.. and with urban areas encroaching on animal habitat, bears and big cats have become more of a problem.. When I lived in LA, we had lots of open space near us and the Coyotes were bold as could be.. especially on trash day! :)

In the neighborhood where I grew up skunks were more of a problem:)!

But then there was the day...we had a duck "Gladys" (funny because we didn't realize that "Gladstone" was a female until my sister's birthday and we discovered a nest with eggs)...anyway, sad memory when I walked out to our trash area and discovered the torn-up body of our beloved Gladys, don't know what kind of critter was involved, although a coyote would certainly figure:(

Bears, balloons, mushrooms and tyre tracks...great curves guys!

Here are a couple of curvy ladies. The first is a buxom lass, approaching middle age but after her current make-over she will be fit to return to the "limelight".

The second is a rather ancient lady, nearing retirement, but still with a lovely curve or two!

Those are great subjects for curves, Ricardo.

This candle thing has butterflies that curve around it.

Thanks. No, I had to be satisfied with taking its picture home.

Thanks, Stina. I'll keep an eye out for more curves. If you ask me, that pumpkin looks a little obscene, too much like a shapeless fleshy animal.
