Therefore, here are the sets of photos taken during those five days as part of Project 365. The photos are also contained within the September Album page. Enjoy!

California Palm Trees – Project 365

Another hot day, which is also a PowerFlex and ‘Spare the Air‘ Day. In other words, don’t drive unless you have to and stay home without the air condition on until 7:00 to save power. The latter is rather difficult. I did decide to go out for a few minutes and walk a few yards to take photos of my neighborhood palm trees. It seems that most Californians – not born here – love to plant palm trees.

Photosets taken over the weekend – Project 365

Cleaning the CCWD Water Canal – Project 365

Had to drop of my car for an oil change to get ready to go South for the Labour Day Weekend. So I spend some time along the nearby Delta de Anza Trail. After walking for about 1/2 mile, my way was blocked by some work crew and their equipment on the trail, not allowing anyone to pass by. Some walkers were not happy to have to turn back since there was no warning at the start of the trail that a portion was closed. Since I had to walk back anyways to pickup my car, I decided to take a few photos before doing so of the work crew trying to clean the Contra Costa Water District (CCWD) Water Canal that runs parallel to the trail.

Concord Hills Regional Park – Project 365

On my way to Concord I stopped by at Willow Pass Road/Avila Road to take a few photos of the old Concord Naval Weapons Station land that will become Concord Hills Regional Park. 60% of the former base, totaling over 2,600 acres of grasslands, oaks and spectacular views in the hills between Concord and Pittsburg, will become part of the East Bay Regional Park District. The plan for new park is to offer hiking and mountain bike trails, camping, equestrian facilities, preservation of the old Navy buildings, or all of the above. There is also the possibility for a joint visitors center with the National Park Service honoring the history of the Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial.

Antioch’s Summer Concerts

Each year, Waldie Plaza, located in Downtown Antioch, is the place to be each Saturday evening in July and August. Here we relax under the evening sky while listening to music from local bands ranging from blues, latin and jazz to country and the oldies. The best, it was free!

Switching to Slickr Flickr

When I committed at the start of 2013 to Project 365 I decided to store all my photos on Flickr instead on my server. To included them in my posts and albums I selected Flickr Gallery plug-in, it was nothing spectacular, but did what I needed. I took a break from Project 365 in 2014, and started back up this year. At was at that time that I noticed that the Flickr Gallery plug-in caused some problems as a result of not having been maintained since 2013.

Project 365 Update

This summer has been rather busy with much personal and professional activities which resulted in me not having time to do my daily Project 365 postings. However, this does not mean I did not take photos each day, I just ran out of time for the details required to do the posting. I did however upload my daily photos onto Flickr since it is my second step of my workflow after uploading them into Photos on my Mac.

Bright Sunrise – Project 365

First things first. It has been a bit over two months since my last posting. Due to some real work I had to do and some issues with the NextGEN Gallery Plug-in, I did not post my daily photos that I did take on my site. More on the NextGEN Gallery Plug-in problem in another posting in the coming days.

Somerville Townsite – Project 365

Today I visited Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve. I was specially interested to take some photos of the Somerville Townsite, where during the mid 1850s–1900s the homes of this active coal mining community used to be. The Roseville Cemetery, last photo, is a popular place to visit. I plan to go there very soon.
