The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge for the week of February 28, 2018. This week, share a picture that takes us on a journey into the unknown. I tried something a little different this week. My photos were shot from unusual perspectives, most of them very close to the ground. Then I intensified the existing colors to show each subject […]
If you’d like to see Huell at his most excited, here’s your chance! This episode of California’s Gold highlights another place I would love to experience for myself — especially since it’s located not far from our Northern California coast fishing spots; it’s just up the (very winding) road from Fort Ross. The drawback is that the lumbermill only operates a […]
It’s been far too long since I’ve gone out hiking in the morning. I shot this picture in October 2016 along one of my favorite local trails — but I had to think for a few minutes before I remembered the approximate location. The appearance of these smaller paths is constantly evolving as the underbrush grows and some of the […]
The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Wildlife. Any kind of wildlife works in this challenge from apes to zebras. Your animals can be found in their natural habitat, wild life preserves, or zoos.

This week I’m returning to Memory Monday with a small collection of slides from 1958 that my mom recently found. The images are from a camping trip my family took (before I was born) up through Northern California, Oregon, and Washington. I’ll start with the pictures from Deception Pass State Park, located on the north point of Whidbey Island in […]
There are as few as 4000 snow leopards in the wild, and their numbers are declining due to habitat loss, poaching and the impact of climate change — World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
It’s been pretty cold around here these past few days, especially in the mornings and evenings, dipping down into the area of frost and freeze warnings. The days have been mostly sunny and sometimes downright warm, enough to give courage to a few hardy and hopeful spring flowers.

For this week’s photo challenge, try your hand at a different type of portrait… Explore the use of anonymity to express both that which is common to all of us and the uniqueness that stands out even when the most obvious parts of us are hidden. Just as […]
