The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Sunset to Sunrise. This is a challenge is basically self-explanatory. Night photographers have fun with this challenge. For those who are not night photographers, I want to see those colorful sunrise and sunset moments. Let’s see how creative you can be on this challenge.
This week I’ll finish out the 1958 camping trip my family took through Northern California, Oregon, and Washington State. They visited the redwoods and the Shasta-Trinity National Forest near the towns of Big Bar and Weaverville, then moved on to Tumalo State Park in central Oregon. Next they camped near the beach at Humbug Mountain State Park, and finally headed […]

I still can’t decide which version I like better.
Today I originally meant to share images from a day trip to San Francisco I took with my friend Julie in the mid 1990s; but I feel like I’ve been slightly obsessing over the City lately.
