2021.    SF Bay Area.    Day hikes and other excursions from home in the Bay Area. As was the case in 2020, through May these galleries focus on the the week-to-week changes in the landscape. Interesting details and events are here too, of course. But come June, the galleries thin out: a pattern unlike 2020 but very much like summer 2019 and before. "Let's take the camera along just in case something noteworthy shows up" replaces "Let's record what's out here today." Not every hike has a gallery. Then in August I bought a new camera body, an Olympus E-M5 Mark iii, and the galleries pick up. I needed to practice shooting and digitally developing the images on this new equipment. That circumstance repeated itself in December when I bought a new smartphone, a Samsung Galaxy S21, and wanted to explore its camera capabilitites. (In both cases, the predicessor device started to fail. 2021 was a bad year for my older electronics.)
