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.

What California is blessed with is the variety of land formations that no other state has. From the beaches of the Pacific to the hills full of minerals to snowy mountains. The amazing Golden State. The mine equipment looks as if it could be ready at a moment's notice to work again...

Happy New Year!

OOOOH! I enjoy roaming areas filled with rusty old machinery. Very cool!

I also like that you included a map.

I'm a big "rusty, old stuff" woman, so I love this.

A dramatic perspective of the wheel and the shadow it casts! Fantastic photo!

It is their 'emptyness' which provides its usage.

A Happy 2011 to you!

It's fascinating how talent and shadows can turn a simple image of part of a wheel into art!
