Today's adventure: Bennett Juniper in the Sierras off Hwy 108. We've been wanting to go there for years, but the road is only open in the summer. We also got to meet a really nice gentleman, Ken, who has been the juniper's steward for nearly thirty years. http://www.savetheredwoods.org/project/bennett-juniper-stewardship-project/
This extraordinary tree is under Save the Redwoods' protection in California's Stanislaus National Forest because The Nature Conservancy conveyed it and the surrounding buffering land to us in 1987. Before then, rancher JW Martin Sr. protected the tree until donating it and the surrounding three acres in 1978 to The Nature Conservancy.

Well cool, my Japanese maple was given a ViewBug's Staff Winter Selection 2015 Award. It's not a competition I entered, apparently it's something the staff just does.

We had a great time last night at the 2014 Kelby World Wide Photowalk in Modesto, CA.  Thanks to everyone for helping make it fun!  I can't wait to see the light painting images. #WWPW2014

I was in Friday's Modesto Bee with Christ Isaak and Brandi Carlile! Okay, technically, my name was on the same piece of newspaper as their articles. I just really wanted to say it the first way. The Photo Collective Show is on the backside of the Carlile article.

A little bummed I can't afford to go to either of Isaak or Carlile's shows, but ours is free so come out for the reception Thursday, August 15th from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at the Mistlin Gallery in downtown Modesto.
...
Join us in celebrating 30 years of the Photo Collective during its Annual Members' Photography Show at the Mistlin Gallery. The show will run from July 30 through August 29, 2013. A reception will be held during Modesto's Third Thursday Art Walk on August 15th from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

The Modesto Art Walk features art galleries, as well as businesses and organizations that display art for the evening, coming together to showcase the best of the arts in downtown Modesto. This no-cost, casual event features a diverse range of artwork. At the Art Walk you will have the opportunity to meet local artists, view and purchase artwork, as well as experience the diversity of the local art galleries and shops in the community.

The Photo Collective Show at the Mistlin Gallery features contemporary presentations with vibrant colors, photos printed on metal, and classic black and white. Photographers have traveled extensively to record images of interesting places such as the Big Sur Coast, Bodie, Vietnam and Cambodia. Some photos in the show have won awards in a number of competitions.

Members exhibiting are Ann Bairey, Barbara Barbour, Rob Bearden, +Janelle DeRuosi, Donna & Daniel Diaz, +Edward Mendes,  Lorraine Nilson, Alan Richards, Amilia Schmidt, Bambi Schmidt, David Silva, Tony Scoble, Virginia White and Mark Wilburn. 

Also, concurrently showing at the the Mistlin Gallery is the Havana Photography Exhibit featuring recent photos from Cuba by David Schroeder and Jon Sousa.

The Third Thursday Art Walk starts at 5:00 p.m. and we look forward to having you join us for the Photo Collective Show's Reception on August 15th from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.

If you cannot make it for the reception, please come by and see the show another day from July 30 through August 29, 2013.
Regular Gallery Hours: Tues-Fri 11:30 a.m.-5:00 p.m.,

Listen to the Hozier album US release for free streaming on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/hozier .  Wooo, new songs!  I'm addicted to this music.  Just pre-ordered the album and got tickets to the February show in Sacramento.  Finally, I get to go to a concert I want to go to; I think it's been two years since we saw The Lumineers.

Story
Tagline
Masquerading Photographer
Introduction
Short version: 1/5 a psychologist turned pro-gimp pretending to be a photographer.  Interested in most every creative field.  If I'm creating, fixing, or learning, I'm happy.

Medium version, i.e., translation:  I became debilitatingly ill a long time ago while in grad school for clinical psych and had to drop out. I currently pretend to be a photographer as a creative outlet to keep up the illusion of sanity. I pretend to be a lot of things: accountant, contractor, architect, interior designer, woodworker, tiler, graphic artist, musician, writer, copy editor, genealogist, race car driver, organizer, personal shopper, computer guru, alchemist, teacher, cat herder, crisis manager and psychologist. Occasionally, I get paid; usually I don't.

Long version:  [Has been removed for your protection.  We don't need a repeat of the hairdresser-in-a-coma incident.]

Really short version: I'm a housewife!     ... with a camera.
________________________________

Over the past several years, I've become increasingly involved with The Photo Collective, the Stockton Camera Club, and the Manteca Camera Club.  I serve or have served in various roles in each as Treasurer, Activities or Educational Coordinator, Webmaster and Social Media Updater, etc. Basically, I plan things, I post things, I design things, I teach things, and I compete, but mostly I answer questions. I will readily admit that I may spread myself too thin, but I do the best I can. The club members are a great group of people and I enjoy getting to be with others who love photography. If you are in California's Central Valley, you should come check us out.
