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.

Unusual view point of the bridge, and the California Poppys give
a lovely touch of colour.

Very interesting shot, Martha. I haven't been to Marin since '89, I think.
You have a great eye for angles and shadows.

The splash of color from the poppies is lovely and I like the angle of the sun for this shadow shot.

Beautiful photo and great shadow shot. I like the way the fence/barrier shadow is short and compact but still shows the details of it's subject. The poppies add a nice bit of color to the shot also.
