Arizona sky.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m obsessed with taking pictures of the Arizona sky. Particularly if there are any clouds to be seen. Here are a couple shots from this morning: A storm is  supposed to be coming through this weekend. We’re the one place in the U.S. that hasn’t gotten all the crazy […]

Roswell, New Mexico

We rolled into Roswell around 4pm on a Wednesday, just one hour before closing time at the International UFO Museum and Research Center. We both really wanted to check it out and were glad we had arrived just in time. There was a lot to see, and we didn’t have much time. Here’s my husband […]

The Very Large Array (VLA) in New Mexico

So, we took a road trip over the holidays. We started off in Arizona and here was my view to the left: And here was my view to the right: We were somewhere near the Arizona/New Mexico border in the above shot. There are lots of smallish green bushes amidst the yellow grasses in those […]

Happy New Year!

Today is my first day back at work after a 16 day vacation (during which time I took the above photo). Before it started, I was already starting to think about the year ahead. I don’t typically do what I would consider an official New Year’s resolution. Maybe because I think of a resolution as something […]

A very Hipstamatic 4th of July weekend.

I downloaded the Hipstamatic iPhone app and had so much fun with it over the 4th of July weekend. So I thought I’d share a few of my favorites. Most of these I took with the Jon S. lens, the Ina’s 1969 film, and the “flash” was off. This one is of my honey picking […]

Desert bloomer.

We had a really rainy spring here in the desert. I can’t say for sure, but I am guessing that the rain, combined with lots of watering of our nearby newly seeded lawn, contributed to this desert bloom: Chet discovered it the other day when we were trimming back our insanely overgrown bougainvillea bush. It’s […]

Friday afternoon clouds.

I took this with my iPhone as I was leaving work this past Friday. It was a beautiful afternoon, which led to a beautiful weekend celebrating my man’s 35th.

How to become a better photographer

For all of 2008, I took at least one picture every day…also known around the internet as Project 365. This was my official photo for the day exactly two years ago today. I was thinking how this project improved my photography skills more than if I had taken a class or read a bunch of […]
