Dear Friends,  I'm sharing our Best of the Week circle again because we inadvertently included someone who had shared non-original work to the theme and didn't give credit to the original photographer.  Of course, we ONLY want to see original work at the +Landscape Photography theme.  I know many of your save these circles as these are the people that inspire us all.  The person is +Adriana Sanchez .  I urge you to remove her from your circles.  Thanks very much.

Photographer, Writer, G+ Advocate!!
Introduction
I'm a photographer, learning, teaching, and documenting the world around me.  My favorite subjects are landscapes, birds, wildlife, people and pets.  I especially like taking photographs of figure skaters.  I like to learn from other photographers and share photographs.
 
I love cats and helping animal shelters.
 
I'm in tune with older music from the late 50s and early 60s and have always enjoyed Dick Dale, Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, surf music, and early rock & roll.
