Journey of a body on this earth



One thing I love about photography is that there are so many techniques to learn to create images.  One that’s always intrigued me is Long Exposures.  There are some really cool shots you can get with that technique, and my upcoming trip to Carmel should be perfect to do it!  This week I plan to practice a bit before we leave next week.  What’s cool about it is that it works great for color or B&W photographs as well.

Check out this short article and the cool images made from this technique!

The other issue I’d like to address for all my knee replacement buddies is that I plan on having my second knee replaced at the end of this year.  Next week I plan on calling my doctor to schedule the surgery.  Ugh.  It’s a long road to hoe, but it’s gotta be done, especially since we have some fabulous trips planned next year and the year after.  I want to be able to carry my camera to the Great Wall in China!



Waves Good-Bye to Alaska

Well, the time has come to close out the Alaska chapter in my life.  sighs.  It was a wonderful trip, but I have pictures to oogle over when I want to remember!

Time to focus on our upcoming trip to Carmel.  It’s actually my husband’s business trip which makes it my camera time!

Bye Alaska!  It’s been fun!


More Alaska Anyone???

I’m winding down on the Alaska photos!  I just can’t seem to get enough of Alaskan skies.  Here in California, we don’t usually get too much inclement weather this time of year.  It’s usually one of two things:  sunny or foggy.  🙂   So I was in heaven with the clouds since we usually get pretty clouds mostly in the springtime.

This is coming just in time because in early September I will be in another heavenly place on earth…Carmel, California!
