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.

Great wonky reflection! Stilts sure have long, long beaks.

I have been looking back to my old post, and notice we had not been visiting each other. How are you?

Your header photo shows snow in the mountains. This is similar to New Zealand, my friend just went to the mountains, and she saw snow even though it is summer.

A happy 2012 to you.
