Waiting — Horses Crossing


Horse Crossing, Spring 2017 in Pearson Arastradero Preserve, Palo Alto

Two horses cross the road while cars wait. The horses are returning to the stables that replaced the site formerly used by the Stanford Artificial Intelligence  Laboratory (SAIL) from 1965 to 1991. Horses now tread where robots once roamed. Quite a switch for technology oriented Silicon Valley. The lab, of course, didn’t disappear, but moved to main campus (see, Computer Science).

The photo above is a detail from the photo below, which was taken last March after the heavy winter rains had stopped.


Hiking trail along Arastradero Road, Palo Alto, 2017

The Pearson Arastradero Preserve is an especially nice place to hike (photograph) in spring. The colors in this photo were emphasized in Lightroom and Photoshop CC (probably, excessively so!), but the photo deserved a little extra punch because the day was so exuberant.
