A glimpse of the historic bridge with its wonderful lampposts, and the Quai des Grands Augustins in the distance. It's been years since I traveled to Paris, but that city is calling me again lately. I'm currently reading "Seven Ages of Paris" by Alistair Horne. Recommend it highly to anyone who loves history, and loves Paris. (Vintage Books, 2004)

Wonderful history of the Pont Neuf here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pont_Neuf

And now for a completely different mood: in autumn the ocean off the rugged Mendocino Coast is calm, almost like a lake, and one can see kelp bulbs emerge above the water, indicating the presence of giant kelp forests floating below. Sea otters can float on these thick beds, bobbing up and down with the gentle wave action. The coming evening's deep blue sky is reflecting in the calm ripples. (Another image from my archives.)

I have not had a chance to get out in the field to make some new images, so here's a photo from my archives. A view from the Mendocino Headlands in winter a few years ago. Fresh vibrant air -- the sweetest I know. Wonderful energy, welcome moisture, a glistening, shining Pacific Ocean.

Haven't had a chance to get out to make new photos recently, so here's a scene I photographed a while ago for a local magazine, the Mendocino Traveler's Guide. In summer, salmon season is open for a couple months. After a day's work the fishermen had just moored their boats and were busy at the docks loading their fish onto trucks. They were getting ready to have a beer at the local watering hole, while their boats were dancing on the gentle waves in the late afternoon sunshine.

Happy New Year Flickr friends. Celebratory angels that decorate this wonderful pipe organ, in the Malastrana district of Prague. Mozart played the Mass in C Minor on this organ, in 1787. "How time flies..."
All the best to you in 2017!
