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.

lovely image and wonderful title you gave to this one.

I agree, a wonderful title for a beautiful photo. I love those old windmills.
And you know how much I like your map feature. If I hadn't checked this one out, I never would have known there is a "Pittsburg" (with no H) and a "West Pittsburg" in California.

The windmill is attractive atop the wooden structure. I love the blue skies you so often have!

Lovely photo for SWF!

Given a chance (and maybe some repairs), that old windmill could probably still pump water.


The sky’s a most wonderful thing,
Within it some strange creatures sing:
The angels and such;
But dragons? Not much—
They’d rather breathe fire and take wing.

Believe or not, I've spotted windmills in and around Oakland. Probably just remnants of an earlier age that no one's bothered to tear down yet. Yours looks like it works.
