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.

A splendid shot, so soft! I feel like I could blow on it from here and watch it float in all directions.

A gorgeous capture indeed, Martha! I feel the same way as Karen! Enjoy your day and a new week!

Wonderful photo, Martha. I enlarged it just to lose myself in its softness for a moment.

What a lovely shot - I can just imagine them blowing in the wind.

Good question, Martha! This thistle seems to be a bit confused.

A magical capture,before the wind
blew the seeds up and away.

It looks like both!
I don't know what season it feels like right now. We're on the road and sitting in a 200 mile long fog bank. At least I have internet here to pass some time.

It's as confused as I am sometimes. Lovely shot.

Beautiful. Love the way the thistle is in bloom and also has the seeds all fluffed out. Very interesting.
