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 have some here who don't sing much but they eat a lot of Nyger Thistle Seeds.

Called Bob to see this one, Martha! Sweet contrast on that red twig dogwood! I'd be very happy if you send the storm over the Sierras to me after you've got your quota...

Oh, isn't he a beauty? We used to have goldfinches here but I haven't seen any in a long time. Not, in fact, since the songbird population of our neighborhood was decimated by a family of Merlin Falcons several years ago. One year, Mom and Dad and Baby Falcon chose our big trees as their dining room, and I'd find our deck covered in heads, wings, tails and feet of songbirds. It was horrible, and I'm glad the Merlins moved down the street.

Love your photo!
