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.

OK, you've succeeded in making me very jealous! I was in the Anza-Borrego just three weeks ago and never saw a desert lily!


Some say that shadows are fragments of light,
Others that they are but pieces of night,
Fleeing like demons when dawn becomes day,
Fearing the radiance coming their way.
Is one notion wrong and one notion right?
Just what are shadows if they are not light?

That is a unique plant on the desert floor. Yet though it is flora, it has a neat look of man made items, such as a bicycle chain. Nice!

What an interesting plant. I like the shadow it casts.

How unusual and the way you captured it, makes it look like a piece of abstract artwork!
