Remembering a friend...this was his winter sunset over the bay tonight. The Golden Gate Bridge is off in the distance, zoom in.

RIP.

The other morning I just missed capturing a sea of colorful umbrellas. It would have been a cool shot. Ah well, here's just a few :-)

Oh there were such lovely butterflies in my stream today... and then I realized I had a humble capture!

This is from a visit to the Monarch Sanctuary in Pacific Grove. They come here to mate every winter. I'd never seen ....

The female comes down to the ground. A male then tries with all his might to pick her up and carry her away, slowly and carefully, high into the trees. These attempts are made with such enormous exertion that once in the tree, the male has to rest until nighttime. Only then does the fun begin!

Barriers are placed around the butterflies on the ground to protect them from us human intruders. I was about 10 feet away and without a zoom lens; I had to crop this about 95%.

More butterfly info below in my comment!

Oh how lovely to see so many cows in the stream today!
I haven't seen a bovine in what feels like forever, but I did enjoy the seahorses this week.

Hey! One of #tedscousins stopped by at dinnertime. He was a cutie, and got even hotter after a bit of a tan.
:-D

Looking back further...

Ok, so I ran one of those Circle Count queries for 2016, and laughed out loud at the results! While others have beautiful montages focused on flora, wildlife, or landscape, my composite photo looked terrible: it was filled with an awkward mishmash of subjects and processing styles. It stands to reason, reflecting my very limited time with photography this past year. Still, I didn't want to share it.

Then last evening, I happened to see my favorite pictures, not of last year, but from 2015! I'd assembled them at the end of that year and never shared. Oh to look at them now, I see the difference spending more time makes on the results. I still enjoy each capture and the memory surrounding each moment. I'd also gotten my #Olloclip macro lens for my iPhone that year, and was having so much fun!

I hope you like, dear Gpeeps. You can find each introduction under the "i" icon.

Maybe I'll get around to compiling my favorites from 2016 ;-)

Introduction
G+ is my social media platform of choice.  
~ It's filled with smart, funny, talented, and most importantly, very kind people 
~ I share what I want, with whom I want 
~ And G+ fuels my clumsy attempts at photography  :-)

A camera in a phone?  Ridiculous. 
Then I got my first iPhone in 2009 and discovered what the fuss was about. Gplus slowly began to awaken my hibernating love of photography....   I became brave and started processing, here with the supportive community I found. I enjoy and learn so much from all the talented photographers here.

In 2012 I got a Nikon bridge camera to learn more, and through a Gplus Mentorship I finally learned how to use Manual mode!  I went the Fuji route in 2014 and now carry a Fuji X100S in my purse as well as my iPhone. Regardless of what I use, I shall always be an emotional and spontaneous photographer.


Stuff I'm working on here:
  • I curate for the AllThingsRed photo theme 
  • I'm trying to improve my B/W photography with The B&W Project and have a dedicated Collection for it 
  • I am NOT a member of the #gulluminati #gullarazzi
See you around,
Liz
