CFFC-Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Reflections and Shadows

So, what motivated my friend Cee to choose reflections and shadows for this week's fun challenge?  I see, she fell right into my hands...  Reflections and shadows are some of my very favorite photographic subjects! Bodies of water are excellent for reflections, aren't they?  Especially if the water is flat, mirror-like.  The waters of Silver …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #159: Postcards

In 1991, I went to Cambridge, England on a three-week summer program run by UCLA. At that time, I lived in Seattle. I knew that I was going to be meeting new people from all over the US and England, and I remembered something I had read in a magazine somewhere. It suggested that you …

Lens-Artists Challenge #106-Autumn

Autumn has always been my favorite season.  Warm weather does not agree with me, and I prefer the crisp air of autumn to heat and humidity.  Here on the West Coast, we don't have the hardwood forests found on the East Coast, but we do get some of the fall colors. We went to Victoria, …

Goodbye old friend, farewell to my trusty old camera

I'm pretty old-fashioned.  I don't own a smartphone, and most of  my photography is done with an advanced point-and-shoot camera.  I loved my Canon SX20IS camera, not the least because it operated on four AA batteries.  I never had to worry about its battery dying, because I always kept a spare set of batteries in …

Autumn Reflections

Autumn is my favorite season.  Hot weather doesn't agree with my body very much, and I always welcome the onset of autumn.  The kids are back in school, the air is cool, and the sun still makes its appearance on most days.  Here are some reflections of autumn that I have captured, mostly around home …

Photo Challenge….Serene

At the marina on the Inner Harbour of Victoria, British Columbia, this morning shot of the boats, and the very calm water.  Gentle ripples, and no one stirring this early.  The world seemed to be holding its breath. I loved the boats-such a wide variety, with no two even remotely alike. https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/serene/  

Visions of Victoria (B.C.)

When we got married, in October of 2003, my husband and I decided to go to Victoria, British Columbia, for our short honeymoon.  Hubby had lived in the Pacific Northwest since 1980, and he had never been to Victoria, which is just a few hours away, north of us.  So I contacted Clipper Vacations, who …

One Love (Photo Challenge)…My Love for the Seashore

As long as I can remember, I have always loved the seashore.  I grew up in Seattle, on Puget Sound, an arm of the Pacific Ocean.  In the summer, my sister and I would join our maternal grandparents and our Portland cousins for a week at Seaside, on the Oregon coast.  In the 1980s, I …
