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.

I love finding the year's last blooms in unexpected places!


Shadows above me, shadows below,
Shadows beside me, wherever I go;

Shadows each morning, shadows at night—
Shadows, O shadows, you’re my delight!

Such a terrific shadow shot, as always, Martha! I love the purple color and the crisp shadows! Hope you have a great weekend!

the purple is so lovely, so vivid
and the shadows are so strong

Great Shadow Shot.
Such rich colors and sharp contrast. Living in California may be a little like living in New York. People hear your state and immediately think big cities and high taxes. But there is such a treasure trove of beauty far, far away from the city.

This is just so pretty. T’is a shame it is going to be gone before you know it. The color, the shadows, the texture on the rock, and the way the stems curve make for such a lovely image. You composed this one beautifully. genie

Where is my shadow,
I cannot find her anywhere,
I'm so lonely without her here.

If the lighting's right,
and I am out in the yard,
I bet I'll see her again.

That will make me smile,
My loneliness will end
I'll be with my friend.

I always loved the last "hangers-on". And a lovely shadow this one casts too!
