I think I tend to notice things around me that most people will walk by, and that’s what I like to photograph. Like this pine tree bark from up close, which looks a lot like a topographic map.

Or this manzanita tree bark peeling off.

Have you ever seen the spider webs that grass spiders make? When they get wet with the morning dew, they look very cool from up close.

I like using the sky as a background and this gray but very bright sky was perfect to make this orange rose stand out and glow.

Living in San Diego, I get to see a lot of wildflowers in the spring, especially poppies. For this shot, I used the wooden fence as my main object, with the wildflowers bordering it.

When you live in San Diego, you get to enjoy quite a few things, like a very blue sky on lucky days, and a very blue Pacific ocean. In this last shot below, I used the grasses growing on the sand dunes at Coronado Beach as a foreground, with the Pacific ocean in the background.

    • Thank you! I took that photo at a local park, which is pretty grassy but doesn’t have many trees. It’s right by the San Diego river, so let’s a lot of wildlife to see.

    • I sometimes take my good camera with me, especially when I know I have opportunities for good pictures, but I really should take it more often. You just never know.
