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.

What a wondrous flower!


For red my affection is great,
It’s puce and chartreuse that I hate.
I’m fond of cerise,
It makes a nice piece
Of clothing that looks just first-rate.

I just have to go high enough up a mountain and find a soggy riverbank, and there they will be, obtaining nutrition from the roots of other plants by injecting them with...okay, I forget that part, but I did look it up, and it is gorgeous indeed (even if cannibalistic).
You find the most fascinating things to photograph, Martha. Wow.

Oh, this is wonderful....I really wonder if I would have seen the elephants if you had not mentioned them.
