I went to Inverness to visit a photographer's studio today, which was fantastic. They have self published 4 beautiful photography books on Marin, Point Reyes and California which are all gorgeous. Afterwards, I went out to Point Reyes which was super foggy, but was able to shoot some wildflowers, like these yellow lupine.

Craig slowed dowon on the top of the bridge so I could get this photo, which I have been wanting to take for some time. I then realized the best view was from the bridge because it is the highest spot. This is the Delta, the huge waterway that goes from Sacramento to San Francisco Bay and beyond. And Mount Diablo in the background.
I grabbed this shot in the garden while we were packing the car to the cabin. I have been trying to capture a bee for some time now, but their wings beat so darned fast. This shot is taken at f/4.0, 1/3200 sec, and I think this is getting close to capturing those little wings!

This tree was next to the street where I parked to pick up Julia at school today, and when I looked at it more closely, it reminded me of an impressionist painting. The colors were astounding! And I liked the foliage and flowers in the background, which repeated some of the same green and red colors.

I loved that Chicago O'Hare Airport had benches in the terminal on which students had replicated famous paintings. It reminded me of the ArtStart program Julia worked for last summer, when she painted a bench for a dog park.
Since my flights were really full, I only used by little Coolpix to shoot from the plane windows. I liked the ships in San Francisco Bay on this view.
