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.

We had a big magnolia in our front yard (our Springfield OR house before we sold it) and used to use the seedpods for Christmas decorations -- leaves and pods on the mantlepiece. Makes me nostaligic. Gorgeous picture.

I have a magnolia in the front yard and it's never produced anything like this! Exquisite!


Yea for scarlet, yea for red!
Yea for summertime that’s fled
To some far-off frigid place,
Where no ruby shows its face!

Such a brilliant red! I've never seen one of these before. Looks like it would be a wonderful addition to a bowl of potpourri.

Thanks for your visit. Hope you're having a great weekend. =)
