So if you follow my Instagram feed, you’ve seen this photo before.  But if you don’t (and really, why don’t you?!?), then this is new for you.  I took this photo with my iPhone, edited it in Snapseed for cropping and popping the silhouette a bit.  Other than that though, this is literally what the […]

Happy Autumn! It’s still in the triple digit temperatures here, so we’ve got a ways to go.  But at least there’s hope now! Do you remember when I told you we went to Rustlers Roost for Joe’s company banquet? There were so many photo opportunities there, and all I had was an iPhone! I did […]

Happy Hump Day! Here are a couple shots from our crazy weekend, taken at Rustlers Roost at South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona.  I didn’t realize this place would be so full of great photo opportunities, and I didn’t bring the good camera.  As an added bonus, my phone was almost dead when we arrived.  I […]

Another Ocean Beach shot-getting sick of them yet? Apologies, but I am totally enamored and can’t help myself! Bear with me, I only have one more picture after this one and we’ll move right along.  I love the trees in this photo.   I like how they all sway to the right, and man, the […]

I heart succulents! Maybe from growing up in the desert.  But California’s succulents are SO much better.  Prettier, more colorful, and everywhere you look.  This one happened to be in the shape of a heart.  I wonder if the homeowner planned it that way, of if it was nature’s way of giving back some love?
