5/31/10 Bee in the Yellow Lupine

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.

5/30/10 The Delta

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.

5/29/10 Dogwoods

The dogwoods are starting to bloom in Yosmite, but we really had to hike int the woods to find a few. There will be many more in 2 or 3 weeks, as they will appear as the snow disappears.

5/28/10 Bee and Rose

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!

5/27/10 Clematis Vine

I covered the camera and lens with a big towel to get this shot in the rain. I also have a rain hood, but the towel worked just fine!

I tried to catch some clouds tonight, but they were moving quickly over these fields of yellow flowers.

5/25/10 Tree Bark

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 asked to take some photos when I stopped at the strawberry farm today, and immediately ran into this strawberry farmer with her colorful buckets.

5/23/10 San Francisco City Hall

Julia's class was having their prom at San Francisco City Hall, where the Black and White Ball had taken place the night before!

5/20/10 Peachey Rose

I love peach roses.

5/19/10 Raindrops on Roses

It just keeps on raining and raining . . .

5/18/10 Squill

The squill is a South American flower, which is great in my rock garden.

5/17/10 Chairs

I love these chairs on the lake in front of Di and Tom's house.

5/16/10 Red Tulips

More tulips in Grand Haven Michigan

5/15/10 Red and White Tulips

They have such great tulips in Michigan, especially over on the western side near Holland (naturally!)! I took this photo in Saugatuck, where the spring flowers are really goregous and will get even better as summer comes along.

5/14/10 Grand Haven Lighthouse

It was great to see Grand Haven again, love that place!

5/13/10 Art Bench

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.

5/12/10 Glass Tiles

The glass tiles in my hotel bathroom were really cool, I loved the colors. The Intercontinental Hotel in Chicago also had tons of art work in the hotel and even called the wings, the "Artist Wing" and the "Museum Wing".

5/11/10 San Fran View

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.
