We were in Yosemite this past week. Such a shame to see all the fire damage from several years ago and dryness this year. Almost no water in the park at all - this first photo is Bridal Veil Falls, with only sprays and trickles now. I took this other photo in the park, brought it into Photoshop, put it in B&W and teeked it "A la Ansel Adams" style. Think it looks pretty good.
Had to leave early for home because of an emergency at our house. Water damage. Looks like my sewing days will be nil for a while - oh, how I will miss that. Really have a lot of creating to do.

Couldn't be without my camera for inspiration in my quilting. I love taking all kinds of photos, especially close-ups with my macro setting. On this trip I have taken over 1,200 photos! Here are a couple of flowers I got in close-ups in Nevada City and the Humming birds stood still for me while eating on my brother's porch. Now in Yosemite and hope to get some good Falls photos.

Barb and I combed the beach yesterday for several hours and here are some of my treasures -- agates, beach glass, and unusual pieces of shells.
The flowers in the northwest have been profuse for months now. This photo was taken when we went for a favorite Mocha. Won't it make a beautiful quilt! I have taken many photos this last three months that have inspired me for many quilt projects - old barns, birds, flowers, rivers, bridges and trees.

Thanks to all my friends and family who have looked at my new blog - I am excited about doing it. I will get a better photo of me when I get home ---after traveling for 3 months I am having very bad hair days. I had to take the photo with my computer camera, just trying to get something temporary
