Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

Providing a colorful entry to this Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up, is a brilliant red poison oak (don’t touch!), joined by some sort of moss and lichen that covered many of the trees at Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in Cambria.

Birthday Trip to Catalina

I spent a most delightful day at the little town of Avalon on Catalina Island this past Tuesday, July 21st. It was my birthday, and I therefore enjoyed the benefit of free round-trip passage on the Catalina Express out of Long Beach, California.

Sunset at Cambria

During my (longest in ages!) 4 day vacation at Cambria on California’s central coast, I took nearly 1000 pictures. My fellow photographers can relate, I’m sure. The natural beauty of the area was staggering, hence the continual click click click of my camera. I enjoyed my solo get-away, without internet or television, with much time […]

I took this picture while hiking this week near Fiscalini Ranch Preserve in Cambria, on California’s central coast, just a bit outside of my usual Southern California.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Door, 1

For this Weekly Photo Challenge, Door, I chose a favorite door photo, taken at the Brewery in Downtown Los Angeles. The doors that lead to nowhere but a drop off two and three flights down. Even knowing this building had been a beer brewery back in the day (the building now houses artist lofts and […]
