My destination would be a town called Pahrump in the Nevada desert, about an hour northwest of Las Vegas, new home of a long-time friend. I headed out […]

Monday Morning Attitude

It’s Monday morning, my least favorite time of the week. Today’s Foto Fix reflects a fairly common theme among my co-workers.

The tigers are brothers from […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth

For this week’s photo challenge, Earth, I chose four of my silly selfies taken with my iPhone. They feature me at various stops in California.

Henry the Desert Tortoise

(6 photos) Weekend before last I explored the area near Modjeska Canyon and came upon a tiny nature center where I “met” Henry. Having had a tortoise when I was very young, and turtles having been my very favorite animal in those days, I was drawn to Henry. The space he called home was quite […]
