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 the photo and the vantage point you used. I checked out the map and it looks like it might have taken some effort to find this spot!

One of my favorite vantages! My son Jim once swam from Alcatraz to the Embarcadero.

I used to live in California. For many years we drove through Merced on the way to visit my grandparents in Modesto. - Margy

Oh yeah now this is the California everybody knows. But they don't always see such a lovely picture. Very nice.

Whoever decided that bridge ought to be red was brilliant. It adds so much to every photo it's a part of.
