Everybody knows how fan palms fascinate me by their mysterious play with light.
The fans are different colors depending on the light.
On a cloudy day, they are subdued and almost pail when the light strikes them. There is always something to see through the fans!
During the afternoons after the sun goes down behind their fence, they shine.
The leaves look entirely different on the same tree depending on where the sunlight strikes them!
At one place, there were three fans lined up side by side. The Three Sisters.
Some of the fans stand erectly while others bend with their huge fans.
Sometimes, when I look at the photographs on the media card, I think they don’t look real. It is a fact that photographs do not mirror reality. They are more precise than the real thing and they deceive. In the photographs, we do not see exactly what we saw through the lens … ours or the camera’s. The human eye looks at a roof line and sees a soft line. The camera sees a hard line. Often, I like a softer focus better. I like my world in softer focus too.
