Journey of a body on this earth


Somebody Loves Me! :)

This image was created from a macro shot of some flowers my husband brought me.

My husband has been so incredibly wonderful while I’ve been recovering from this knee replacement.  He brings me flowers, cooks my meals, brings me little surprises, and is there for me when I have my bad days to lift my spirits.  I’m not quite sure what I would do without him.  So thank you honey for taking care of me.  🙂

Evening Walk – Monochrome Madness


I’m not really at my computer right now.  This will be my last post containing an image from my camera for a few weeks until I’m able to get up and around again, but I couldn’t resist partaking in one more MMC until then.  🙂

This image is of my husband walking as the sun was going down behind him in the west; and it’s the perfect time to thank him for being my rock and taking care of me through all my physical challenges the past few years.  And oh yeah, a big thank you to him for listening to me when I can’t stop talking about photography, lol!

One last thing if you’ve made it this far…I hope you don’t mind if I ask you for some prayers right now.  I would be so grateful to those of you who could hold me in your thoughts and send me positive vibes.   Thank you!


Evening Walk – Monochrome Madness




Year 2013 on Speed

When I started this blog back in December 2012, I only had the intention of sharing my knee replacement journey and the physical accomplishments I would make along the way.  Once I started to feel better and get out and about, I started realizing that looking through a viewfinder was becoming an important part of my journey and my life.

Here are some 2013 highlights!   C’mon…you know you want to see them again.  😛

The most liked post is the a recent one of the San Francisco Bay Bridge at night…it was my first nighttime long exposure and it seemed to be well received:

The most commented post is the Pigeon Point Lighthouse image….I think this photo represents when I started using my wide angle lens in a more effective manner:

This post reminds me of how important it is to have your camera ready

One of the best pieces of advice I received as a new photographer was to always shoot in RAW format.  I was able to extract the salmon from this photo because I shot in RAW, otherwise the photo would’ve merely shown murky water with shadows of fish.  Just click and scroll down a bit on this link and you’ll see the salmon.

This post is near and dear to my heart.  It’s my five month progress report for my knee replacement.  Via WordPress stats, I can see this post is still viewed, and it makes me happy people still find it informative.

Lastly (if you’ve made it this far, lol)……thank you for supporting me!

Here’s a crazy thing I did in Photoshop….just having some fun, plus this post needed an image LOL!
