Road Trip To Egypt

Had a splendid time today with four other camera-laden ladies at the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum and the San Jose Municipal Rose Garden.  Couldn't have had a nicer time, and thank you +Lora Lee Chapman for planning this event.  Worked out perfectly, right down to the restaurant that opened its doors to us for lunch, even though it was closed. #roadtriptoEgypt

Today's offering:  A goat in a bonnet.

Just because your feed is probably overflowing with beautiful landscapes, and touching reminders of fun times had with friends, and exquisite portraits, and sometimes the eye needs a bit of a palate cleanser.

Dry bones

It was really dry in the desert this weekend.  Like, really-really.  I was parched, though my dryness might just have been because I spent too much time laughing, and not enough time drinking.

But I wasn't as dry as this guy, hanging out in the ghost town of Nelson, just outside of Las Vegas.  This is one out of a set of nearly 1600 photos that I took over my four days of meeting with fellow members of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt community.  My brains (and memory cards) are full.

Such a fun evening at the Warfield tonight.  Sure wished I could've brought my camera in, but the phone did an ok job from the 8th row.

How was the performance? I didn't get to see them when they came to our town, but I definitely wanted to... It's one of the only Reality TV shows I actually enjoy!

+Sam Breach​ I'm between the ferry building and Starbucks to the north, sitting on a bench looking towards the dry fountain. Jenny is a little stuck in traffic.

Fremont Street
Never a dull moment. Even the Prince of Darkness walking among us didn't raise any eyebrows...

The Letter C

So the 2014 14-Is-Fabulous +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt continues apace.  Today's album revealed was "The Letter C".  If'n I'd had my ducks in a row, I would've submitted this shot of our Yellow Bird, who's appeared in several of the hunts over the years.  
1. Because he's a *C*ockatiel
2. Because if you look, you can see a letter C in his eye.  My husband gave me a 105 macro lens, and a ring flash for my birthday, and one of the fun features of the flash is the ability to turn off one side or the other, to modify the light output.  These photos of Jewel were some of the first that I took with the macro lens, and I foresee a beautiful future of macro photography.  

But enough about me.  Head on over to the Scavenger Hunt Albums, and be amazed at the great work my fellow scavengers did (and submitted! - the salient point here).
