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!

Car Interruptus Times Two.

A quick trip and unexpected trip to the dark (?) skies of Joshua Tree.

Erika and I wished we’d brought our tents and sleeping bags!


Lane posing and meditating.

Early morning meditation shot of Lane in Joshua Tree.


Nightscapes in Joshua Tree.

Lane using his iPhone LCD for lighting.

Stacy. We reluctantly stopped shooting at 12:30am. We were having too much fun.


My son Lane.

Stacy, Ann and I had a blast with my son and his two friends in Joshua Tree yesterday and today. More photos to follow.

Lane, early this morning.


Joshua Tree photos and an 8 sec time-lapse.

Photos from the overnight Stacy and I did in Joshua Tree last Friday.

Before my camera card became full (because I only thought I’d changed from shooting raw to jpg) below is my first ever time-lapse video. This 8 second clip was made in Quicktime Pro 7 from the 211 photos I shot. Here it is, don’t blink.


Kids at play with light.

Off to an all day meeting but can’t wait to post some more photos in the next couple of days.

Playing with off camera flash, Stacy begins to play for me.

She got her cartwheel but her pants didn't hold up so well! Rip!!!!!!!!!!!

Stacy has endless ideas.

And then it was my turn......my expression tells it all. I had a great time in Joshua Tree with my camera.


Home and going through the Joshua Tree photos.

Joshua Tree Rocks!!!!!

Stacy wrote the text with her headlamp! We played hard.


Great time in Joshua Tree National Park today.

Joshua Tree. Cholla cactus.

Yogi giving me some poses.

Inside one of the many old gold mines.

We hit a good wildflower bloom.

Yogi inside one of the old abandoned trucks.


Last day of shooting.

A couple of hours in Joshua Tree.

Oh my do I need some rest, and exercise, AND more planning, before I hit the trail.

Friday I go back for a couple of two hour seminars at the Palm Springs Photography Festival before Ray drives me to Campo, where I’ll camp before heading north on the PCT early the following morning.


A great day with Jack.

Day 1 – Joshua Tree late afternoon with Jack Dykinga.

Our photography workshop leader, Jack Dykinga.

Looking for design.

Most fun.

Not wanting to leave, but we had to.

The payoff for staying 5 more minutes.
