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!

Route 66 Road Trip with Keith Skelton’s Workshop.

April 7 – 10th, 2016

Victorville, CA to Holbrook, AZ.

I had signed up for this workshop with Keith Skelton before I knew I’d be having a left hip replacement (2/23/16). I knew going on this workshop was probably not good for my rehab but emotionally wanted to go and did. I paid the price seated in the car for 10 hours sometimes. I drove in my own car in case I had to turn back home.

Walking to what I would have liked to photograph with the others when we stopped ended up being very painful. I’d drive up close to what I wanted to shoot eventually and photographed subjects from my car. Unfortunately I only brought my Leica with a 28 mm lens since I figured the 5d Mark III fitted with longer lenses would be too heavy for my hip replacement leg to endure.

I am glad I went on this trip even with all the pain I experienced. I met some wonderful people, enjoyed being with my friend JJ (Jim Keener), and always enjoy being around Keith. He is a great workshop leader.

And……here are some of the photos I shot.

While waiting for the other attendees to finish shooting I sat in my car practicing focusing on the rain on the window with the intent of showing a blurred distant landscape in the background. Low and behold a train came by with me ready with the settings I wanted. Bingo!!! This is my fav!

Keith is a foodie, as am I. He always knows the best places to eat.
