Portraits from our yard: episode 4

with 16 comments

Remember the white avens (Geum canadense) buds from April 25th that you saw four posts back? Here from the same day are lighter and darker takes on the flowers of the species. The first offers limited focus at f/3.5 by natural light; the second, at f/14 with flash, gives you a sharper view and a dark background.

You may be interested in watching a 26-minute video in which Margaret Hoover (great-granddaughter of Herbert Hoover) interviews Columbia University linguistics professor John McWhorter about the excesses of “anti-racism” and critical race theory. McWhorter, himself black, is the author of the book Woke Racism: How a New Religion Has Betrayed Black America, to be released October 26th.
