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.

That is very nostaligic -- when that sign was new, an auto trip along El Camino Real was an adventure!

I rally like this vintage sign, Martha. It's a great find.

Interesting combination of an auto club sign and a sacred place! Love how the statue seems to be guarding the vintage sign!

That is an interesting combination. I do love the old sign -- vintage it is! Great shot as always, Martha! Hope your week is going well!

I see those bells along the 101 fwy, and being installed/replaced by Caltrans employees. I also saw one episode on Huell Hauser (I forgot the name) where the bells were being made.

Nice of this sign to be preserved.

He has a long walk ahead of him to that auto club!
Nice juxtaposition.

I love the old school sign and the fact that nobody has stolen it.
