My plans to head back out to Folsom Lake during our somewhat warmer weather keep getting postponed for one reason or another. Last week the Big Guy was talking about returning to Sterling Pointe — but we both decided we weren’t quite ready to tackle that big climb back up to the parking lot and needed to get into better […]
After last Monday’s teaser, I thought I should jump right in (no pun intended) with photos from early spring 2010 shot along the American River near the Foresthill Bridge. Just browsing through these images is making me impatient for spring to arrive this year — with its (hopefully) high water levels, mosquitos, and poison oak, to say nothing of the […]
Every time I find myself wandering the grounds of Denio’s market in Roseville, I realize it’s a very good thing that we live in a small house — one that’s already pretty well packed with mementos of our lives. If I had space for even just a few of the cool items I see for sale during the weekends, I […]
I’m hoping to take another trek back to the Angels Camp Museum this spring, but in the meantime, here are a few more shots from my last visit, in June 2021.
I didn’t hike terribly far the other day when we went out to the south fork of the American River near Salmon Falls. I didn’t even get down to the water; but it was such a beautiful spring-like day and there were so many great things to look at that it was impossible to get bored. And I’m always irresistibly drawn to the intricate shapes of the lichen and moss — this time of year, they seem to be all over the rocks and boulders and covering many of the bushes and trees. Macro photography opportunies are everywhere!
After coming home from a Folsom Lake hike with the Big Guy yesterday, we both collapsed in front of the TV and somehow found ourselves watching a couple of great Vincent Price movies: The Last Man on Earth (1964) and Master of the World (1961). I had never heard of either of them, but they got me thinking about this […]
What do you do after you’ve run through pretty much all of your own family photos and there seems to be nothing left to share? Well, you might start sharing the lost or discarded photos of strangers! Part of my motivation for this project comes from discovering the Museum of Lost Memories on Instagram. I may never find any photos […]
