Young Doe

What is especially neat about shooting this photo, is that deer are quite prevalent all over the UCSC campus. I enjoyed having a wonderful opportunity to visit my husband's Alma Mater, and took a generous amount of photos of the campus and of any wildlife that were present.This deer in particular, let me get especially close to her and, having not been on the UC Santa Cruz campus in ages, it was a delight for me to make great use of photo opportunities of wildlife amongst students walking around.... continue reading

The Ralston Trail Hike

When I started on this hike with my friend, I was determined to get up to the top. Well, he did not come prepared so I had to compensate.And, a lot of things happened on the way up, but suffice to say, I did not get to the vista point due to the fact that this lady gave me the wrong directions and, the hike was too hard for my friend. I actually ended up hiking a mile uphill more than I needed to.We ended up getting rescued by the El Dorado County Search and Rescue teams. We ended up getting rescued... continue reading

Hummingbirds in my yard

I love watching the birds out in the wild and decided yesterday, to make a huge go of it. So, I bought ample bird seed, finch food and sunflower food for the many birds that come in neighbor's yard.Hoping that I can attract as many birds as possible, I bought eight feeders and decided to give this a try. This would include I hope, to attract orioles, hummingbirds, various colorful finches, Oregon Junkos, jays, wrens, woodpeckers and whatever else might enjoy a good nutritious intake. Taking clear... continue reading

I love Alcatraz

It was really nice to be able to photograph this Island in the fog. Alcatraz as I remember when I was little, was exciting for me to get on a boat, and go visit the island with my sister.There I'd so much history behind this Island.I think most of us take our freedoms for granted and, when you go visit a jail or prison you really learn to appreciate what lot of people don't have. But in particular, I just love the way this island photo turned out in the fog, because it makes such a pretty setting.... continue reading

The City of San Francisco

My friend told me about Twin Peaks. Why I had not heard of this before, I'm not sure but, I was so glad I listened to her because I was able to get a whole view of the city from above. There is so much detail in this one photo that I'm sure it would take days to actually visit each and every special place that SF has to offer in a city that is only 7 miles long.   continue reading

The Golden Gate Bridge

Almost everyone has heard of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. And many have walked it or cycled it many times. I thought it would be cool to take a photo under the bridge just so that one can appreciate the architecture and engineering design from below.I know that bridges are not easy to design so, this one has always brought me good memories because of the fun and good memories of visiting San Francisco.This is just one of many reasons visiting San Francisco can be special.   continue reading
