My trip to California is ending sooner than I wanted. I have come down with a cold and I want nothing more than to be at home with cup after cup of hot tea and honey. But while I was in LA I had a great time at Photoville and I made a lot of images at the beach.

Yesterday I spent some...

It is Spring in Albuquerque and that means that I have the travel bug. The wind is blowing here (a normal occurrence) and plants are blooming so it is time to get away from the pollen and on the road again. I decided on a quick trip to California, beginning with Los Angeles. There is a big photo...
