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.

A lovely shadow beneath those old bells.

This bell tower, whit three bells no less, sits proudly on the hill. Perhaps so we won't miss the melodic clanging of one or all three. We have no missions like this in New England, so this southwest motif is a treat to view!

Marvelous shadow shot for the day and one of my favorite places! Hope you have a great weekend, Martha! Enjoy!

The old missions retain their charm and their spiritual "draw," even after so many years.


A seeker of shadows one day
Did trip as she went on her way;
She picked herself up
And dipped from a cup
Of shadowy lemon parfait!

Pretty picture. I grew up in the Central Valley and have never visited this mission. Thanks for the glimpse!

Love the picture. Looks like a great place to visit. I tend to enjoy visiting places that are rich with history and the Mission seems to say, "I have stories to tell". Thanks for sharing!!

Love going through this little town on the way to Aptos. Went through the mission several years ago. Beautiful.
