About This Blog

I began this blog in 2011 in an attempt to improve my photography and showcase all of California's 58 counties. I didn't quite make all of the 58, I missed three and I will try to rectify that in the coming year. I'm not sure how much I improved my photography because I always seemed to be in a rush.
In 2012 I plan to take more time, perhaps not post every day (this is one thing I did accomplish in 2011). I also plan to expand beyond California and include images from other parts of Western United States. I will continue to include a map showing where I was when I took the picture. I will keep commentary to a minimum, long photo essays will continue to be at Martha's Musings.

Really nice shot, Martha. And yes, it looks like great weather for the weekend. Yesterday was warm and beautiful in SF. Looking forward to some good photo weather! Enjoy :)

I couldn't imagine mining for anything in the massive heat and desolate landscape. I am trying to see the twenty-mule team, as the old advertisements stated. Stark, yet oddly affecting - we tend to think of the desert as a waste, yet minerals are here in abundance it seems...

I do like the shadows those wheels make - and what a lovely blue sky!

Beautiful photo, Martha.
My husband would like to see Death Valley but I've always been worried about the heat.

The circular wheel shadows contrast well with the rectangular bricks.

Excellent!!!! I personally would like to have some of that desert heat about now. LOL It's been so cold and damp in Texas.
