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.

Gorgeous photo, Martha. I know how small these are. My mother and grandmother always called them "grape hyacinths" because they smell like hyacinths.

Oh wait, is that a grape hyacinth? I saw somebody else's comment just as I was clicking close. Oh, I remember those flowers from when we used to garden (in Oregon)..and I see after looking again that this could be a close-up of them -- maybe.
