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.

Oh my goodness, Martha, how absolutely fabulous! I love it, and the wildflowers DO make it wonderful, not to mention the palm tree and blue sky.
Thank you for sharing this delightful photo with us! (Said she, running the risk of over-enthusing.)

The wildflowers in the foreground add beauty to the train! Love to see them on the tracks.

P.S. I love your goals of this blog. Like you I want to visit the State of CA. Who knows, we might bump into each other.

Beautiful juxtaposition of the train and the wildflowers. We have some family members who are really train people and they'd put that picture on their wall!
