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.

Keep saying that I'm going to take a trip to visit all the missions. This photo reminds me that I could see quite a few not too far from home. Thanks.

Beautiful shot. I used to live in California but in four years, I never got to see everything!

Great shot. Strong bold shadows! Looks like feathers on the side of the roof's shadow. Very cool!

I think, in my humble opinion, California has the BEST missions of all. This photo is super.

Ah! That California sunshine sure does create GREAT shadows!

I'm late this week (EW!) so thought I'd better send you my link:

Very nice shot...I've been to that mission, as well, and to so many of the others.

I wish you a great week ahead!

The missions here in California are so pretty. Visited many several years ago.

This looks like a simple structure, quite unlike Mission San Xavier del Bac near Tucson!


Welcome the shadows surrounding your life,
Treat them as lover or husband or wife;
Welcome them in as you would one who’s dear;
Hug them, embrace them without any fear;
Honor, respect them, and give them their due,
For shadow and light are both parts of you.
