Thanks for stopping by the WeberShots blog! Here you'll find occasional pictures I'd like to share, as well as promotional material (eventually) such as Chrome themes, Windows 7 themes, etc. Anyway, I won't let that be the only (boring) material of my first post, so read on!
Today I went to El Cerrito with Lorice and as we were walking around before visiting Ifshin Violins, we came across these gorgeous, almost unreal-looking, flowers. I have no idea what kind they are, but they were growing on a type of wall-covering vine on someone's front yard fence. I get the feeling this is the kind of flower you'll probably only see near a coast.
Anyway, I am also thoroughly impressed with the quality of photo available by phone cameras these days, but I still wish I had had my Leica with me there.
Thanks to a friend of mine, this flower was identified as a passion flower. It turns out that I was wrong, and this is not necessarily a coastal flower, but is native to areas between South Texas and Mexico.
