Yesterday’s May Flower

Yesterday, I spent part of the day on Olvera Street taking pictures. I took tons of pictures — I’ll share more of my pictures after I go through them all, but I wanted to share my flower picture (for yesterday!) before too much more of the day go away from me. I don’t know what…

May Flower Challenge

I took a photography composition class this afternoon in Los Angeles. After the lecture, we took a few minutes to take some pictures for the instructor to review. He didn’t love this picture as it was taken, but I cropped it to show the flowers better. I took this at his doorstep. Even though I…

Inspiration Strikes!

As anyone can tell by looking at my blog — I’ve been away from my cyber life for awhile. Actually, I’ve been away from my every day life for awhile, too. My official — and deliberately vague — story is that I’ve been dealing with a flare up of a chronic illness. If you been…

Three Thing Thursday

I love hanging out on the internet, seeing what there is to see. In fact, I’m sitting in a hotel room right now, having wished my husband off to a good day at work, clicking and hopping from virtual place to virtual place. I’m so excited to share a few finds with you today. All three of these…
