Welcome!

Linda JeffersIn a world of so many great photographers and writers, I am venturing into some unknown territories, leaving comfort zones, finally very willing to practice the art of seeing. By maintaining the practice of posting daily photos, I hope to continue learning about the possibilities that I trust are out there for the taking.

Come join me on my journey!

When We Were Younger (and not quite so wise):-)

Happy 23rd Wedding Anniversary to Us. And they said it would never last!

Ray’s Buddies.

Greg, Ben, Ray and Matt on the 4th Tee box of the Arnold Palmer here at Mission Hills CC this morning. I ran down to shoot the foursome as I know this game meant a lot to Ray. He loves these guys.

Ray and Matt. It's a joy to see how close Ray is to Matt and so many others.

Morning Hikes Elevate My Mood.

First full sunrise light on Jen.

Looking for shots, Jen willingly poses on our morning hike.

I like big dogs I told Jen. She replied, "I don't like how they slobber." I added, "I don't like how long haired dogs shed." Lately I seem to have found myself entertaining thoughts of someday having a dog again. But that thought is quickly dismissed after thinking through the responsibility of having a dog.

I Finally Met Dale!

My friend Tina has been dating a guy she met online and likes a lot. I’ve hoped to meet him and finally did last Tuesday night. I drove in to the San Fernando Valley to stay overnight two nights to have cataract surgery (That Katya drove me to at 6am. xxoo Katya) on my second eye early Wednesday morning, followed by an eye check up Thursday morning with the doctor before driving back home. Tina and I planned a 5pm hike Tuesday night and Dale joined us. Dale isn’t a boy!!!! He’s a man….kind, considerate, responsible, interesting and a gentleman. I approve:-)

One Of The Things I Can’t NOT shoot.

Had to stop to shoot the very brief color in the sky this morning before meeting Jen for our hike.
