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.

Isn't that gorgeous? I love the dappled shade. And, of course, all things railway.

Deep and mysterious are those shadows...

BE MY COMPANION

Come here, my shadow,
Do not delay;
Be my companion,
Show me the way;
Teach me your secrets,
Chant as we go
Of light and darkness—
Make my heart glow!

This is a real look of the past, the RR depot and flatbed wagon are from a strikingly different era, a simpler time where no automation was available to load and unload a train - pure muscle power was what it took. The barn red adds to the classic air. Nice find!

I like so much about this shot, Martha! First of all, the light is exquisite, but I also love the contrast of the green with the red. Oh, and the shadow is delightful too!

Cool shadows from the tree and great composition.
The photo brings us back to a simpler time and place - like a 100 or more years ago - that we can only imagine.

Very peaceful scene.
