And Then There Were Four

What a gift! Tonight the San Pedro cactus rewarded us with  the launching of one, two, three,four blooms at once. But no, I did not set up the cam and laptop to go timelapse on the quartet, instead just opting for a single shot of the group (click to quadruplify):


The blossom I did capture opening up in slo-wo is the one extending out the right side of the frame. Apparently and some what sadly these flowers are one-night-only wonders as that first one hasn’t reopened since its big debut August 16.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
