A little Bailey kitty, I found in Brighton, UK this summer. I think Bailey is the house cat at The Heart & Hand. And a twist on #caturday fun!

So, one of the great things about G+, for me, are these little fun photo optional series/challenges/contests or whatever we call them. So +Paul Howard, who takes amazing portraits thought this would be fun.......and he was RIGHT.

2/5 #fivefavefaces

My dear friend, on the coast of Northern California, before we explored Pt. Reyes Lighthouse (and the long steps down and up to get there). The wild wind in her beautiful red hair, the beach below and behind (with seals or Elephant seals, if I recall) her make this an image I treasure.


So, with that, let's play #fivefavefaces !
Post one a day for five days, a person you've photographed (can be a headshot, a portrait, a full body shot, whatever), that you really like or has specially meaning or is just one of the only five you've ever shot! Nominate someone else to participate.....or don't. ! Ahem, sorry. Use the #fivefavefaces tag so we all can see some fave faces!

PLEASE! TOUCH - ENJOY!! What a delightful sign to find on a rack of soft, furry blankets! Many thanks to my sweetheart, +Bill Gaynor for modeling.


#SignSunday is hosted weekly by +Lori Carey and +Jetski and sometimes +Janice Hackney.

This works great for #fivefavefaces, a fun game for photographers of all levels.
A gifted photographer we call +Paul Howard invented this idea.

Post one a day for five days, a person you've photographed (can be a headshot, a portrait, a full body shot, whatever), that you really like or has specially meaning or is just one of the only five you've ever shot! Nominate someone else to participate.....or don't. Use the #fivefavefaces tag so we can all search for and enjoy the faces!

New York City. Lines, lines and more lines. Everywhere...up and down. This one struck me, with the lines INSIDE the other lines of the windows.

#fivefavefaces with +Paul Howard
Day at the beach
So this precious little sweetie is the daughter of a friend of a friend. After her mom said "ok" to a few shots, I took about 10-12 images. Her shy and sweet smile, the pop of the big floppy pink hat and the chance to get out of my comfort zone (I am NOT a photographer of people....) were my main motivators. She was so interested in all the beach activities, and we had a dog with us too, it was amazing that I was able to catch her eye and get her to look at me.

Join in, post 5 faces, tag Paul, tag another photographer (or not). Use the hashtag so we can all enjoy your images. All is optional, all is fun.....

I am impressed with the hockey stick. 
For those just tuning in, this is the story so far. A month or so ago my wife and I dumped the kids at the grandparents, and flew to British Columbia, wherein we have commenced another epic road trip. 4 posts in to this adventure has only brought us to noon on the second day.

Story
Tagline
Bringing sense of adventure to everyday living. Yeah, I will go first.
Introduction
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.
