Yet again I must write about the overwhelming happiness I get walking the Santa Monica streets with my camera. The same walk changes each time, according to the light, your position or your awareness. This afternoon, returning to my apartment from the Ocean, it was stimulating seeing the patterns of the Palm trees changing when viewed from a fractionally different angle; to see the Eucalyptus tree touched by the late afternoon sun; to re-see the Ficus trees- having confirmation of their beauty and the importance of the Santa Monica Treesavers' battle to attempt saving them.
It is commendable that six Treesavers are standing for election to the City Council on November 4th. At present there is only one Councilmember who pays more than lip-service to environmental concerns. As in the Presidential election, change is essential.
