For the past five years, in January I’ve posted my favorites from the prior year, and it’s become the New Years’ activity I like best of all! (Prior years are here: 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015.) I’m relieved that less than half this year are iPhone pics (all the square ones), as I rarely use my […]

Last week my sister and I decided we needed a day of inspiration, so she drove down to my neck of the woods and we made the trek to Santa Cruz/Capitola to do a photo walk. She’s been getting serious about photography, and already I think she’s amazing; she’s a natural! I didn’t take as […]

It’s been a while since I have done a plain old “pretty flowers” post, so I thought I’d share these. I haven’t been shooting nearly as much in the past couple of years as I used to (oddly, it seems to roughly coincide with my knee injury in 2014—ROFL!), but once in a while I find […]

In early April, Emily was selected to participate in a very powerful campaign against drunk driving through her school. It’s called Every 15 Minutes, and it’s put on for the juniors and seniors at her high school. We parents were informed well in advance (giving me ample time to stress about it!), but the involved […]

…before our annual passes expire! Most likely our last visit this year—sigh… Emily had a lot of homework, but we decided this was where we wanted to celebrate our 20th anniversary and her 17th birthday. (And despite her working for a few hours each night and for more than 6 hours on the last night […]
