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.

Interesting how the crosspiece barely shows up in the shadow...

A SHADOW THE SIZE OF THE SUN

If I had a shadow the size of the sun,
I’m not sure how fast I’d be able to run,
Or if I could flee from its ravenous jaws,
While keeping away from its razor-sharp claws!

Shadows here and there

I love this! The sand, surf and sky are so expansive without a crowd. Some may get lost in a thicket of people, but this lone stick and its shadow stand out - the individual thing has a voice and a look that stands proud...

love the starkness of this shot - great!

Well I had to ponder this one a little bit to figure out the geometry of the stick and it's crosspiece to the shadow. I think I have it figured out but maybe not.

A simple, but very nice shadow on the beach.

Awesome shot. Wonderful beach scenery. But a totally different pic with this cross AND the shadow.

Makes me think of a sundial for some reason. And also makes me envy you the empty beach.
