"Enough with the butt shots!!!!!!"  After stalking, and shooting this gull on the Capitola Wharf, I eventually got an earful. I was so surprised. At first, he seemed like such a willing model. Parading back and forth on the railing, showing his rear tail feathers, and glancing back coyly. It seemed we were really working together. But then, this outcry. 
I knew the #Gulluminati would understand my dismay. 

#SeagullButtsInDisguise (for other birds; a fine way to use up all those bird shots you took that are "not quite what you were shooting for" and currently languishing on your hard drive.)

+Matt Austin, this is for you in answer to your question about non-photographer artists. That I love.

Everyone else, check this out! Amazing art.
Sorry all. There was a typo in the last bit of art I posted. Here it is again sans typo. :)

Looks like they're already spreading around though! lol

Continuing on my #funwithfisheye tour, I spent a few hours at the Long Marine Lab in Santa Cruz, CA. A working research facility with an open visitor gallery, touch tanks and many living sea creatures. Once again, I am captivated by a skeleton. And why not? Just look at the that little hand, er, fin, ummm, flipper. Best viewed small. Lol.

Out and about, playing with and learning about my rented Canon 8-15mm Fisheye. I popped in to a local gourmet ice creamery. I did have a taste of sweetness, but I left with another kind of treat.

It's #FloralFriday! The +FloralFriday theme was created by +Tamara Pruessner and is co-curated by +Beth Akerman, +Kiki Nelson, and +Eustace James.

Also, #fisheye

No wrong time for flowers  A grey foggy, and sad day in a small coastal town in California. A colorful bouquet, tied to the wharf fence, right above a memorial plaque. The words on the plaque say so very little, a name, birthday and death day. And the blossoms, lovingly placed above say so very much.

Bringing sense of adventure to everyday living. Yeah, I will go first.
I live on the Central Coast of California, and am surrounded by friends. I enjoy a good hockey game, listening to live music or perhaps First Friday (monthly Art Walk).  I come from a long line of talented, prolific and crazy artists, and am just now really stepping up to my craft. My daughter is crafty and creative too!  It is always about the colors, shapes, and the space between them.
Answering the call to first see, then create and ultimately share my art has become very vital to me.
The photographers on Google + have become some of my favorite Muses, inspiring me so much with their varied skills and styles  vision, creativity and talent.
Bragging rights
I mix up left & right. Why brag on this little dyslexic quirk? Well, I kinda like it. Left? Right? Who knows, not me! Keeps it interesting to a degree. I have little fear of getting lost, heck I have done it tons of times and survived just fine. But as rule, you might not want to ask me for driving directions.
I ask questions. And talk. Are these skills? Sometimes they really are.
