Many, many moons ago… about 26 years ago to be more precise, 3 generations of women got into a Mazda 626 and made the long trek up the I-5 to Washington State. My mother, my infant daughter and I were making an emergency visit to see
So, what do you do when the weather is gloomy, when the sky has been totally grey all day for a couple of days and you live near the beach? You wait for the clouds to begin breaking up a bit and then take your camera out and see what you can get! Luckily for me, the tide was out around
There’s a thinly veiled secret spot at the south end of Southern Cailfornia’s Laguna Beach. An almost hidden staircase in a small residential neighborhood will take you to Victoria Beach, a small beach with fairy-tale flair. The spot is not easy to get to, especially for my old legs and bad joints, but it is so worth a visit if you are in the area. Victoria Beach is famous for
Joshua Tree National Park is one of my very favorite local places. It’s the place I run to for a quick get away, even if it’s just for the afternoon and some night shots. Everytime I go to Joshua tree I find new things. It’s a living place that is always changing

As 2015 comes to a close, I can’t help but take a look back and be grateful for all the cool things I was able to see and do this year.

One of the benefits of taking road trips are those “hey wait, what was that?” moments. Moments where you make a U-turn and jump out of the car with camera in hand. Of course there are all the short stops and way points on the road where you grab a few shots and head on your way. What to do with all those photos that don’t really warrant a whole story? I know!
