Some large blooming tree dumps red stamens as it goes to seed in late September and October in San Francisco.

Red streets mark the turn of the seasons in my part of town. time passes.

These red stamens and pods are from a eucalyptus tree, and/or a bottlebrush — both seem to be dumping red stamens. I have now photographed red tracings on pavement at this time for three years. Clearly, this obsessive near-daily digital photography intensifies awareness of the seasons, and of life moving along.
