Road Trip

At the end of Charlie’s street, which dead ends at the Ottowa River. His neighbors have piers and boats and back porches on the river. I took this picture with my Sigma 10-20 at 20mm.

This is the Waller holler. My Great Grandmother’s house was situated in the little valley between the 2 roads in the middle of this photo. We traveled to Carthage, Tennessee every summer when I was growing up, and we usually stayed for two glorious weeks.

Smith County, Tennessee


This photo is from my trek between Butler Cemetary and Beverly’s house in Lafayette, where I pulled over to check my directions. I can’t find this on Google Maps, so if any of you know where this is, please let me know!

Last week we made a 400-mile circle (rectangle?) in 13 hours.

Trying out Viveza and ColorEfex filters from Nik. They worked really well on this photo from my 2009 cross-country trip.

After getting stuck in rush hour traffic, getting lost just west of Corona (looking for a restroom in an industrial area, oops!), and checking into our hotel in Irvine, we went to Laguna Beach for a long walk and some seafood.

These guys were catching fish from a rock pier at Newport Beach. The guy on the left had to keep chasing seagulls away from his string of fish.

You would never guess that there were about 439,751 people on the beach when I took this picture. It took us about an hour to find a parking space, after being stuck in a traffic jam trying to get to Balboa Beach.

Old dump truck in Desert Center, CA


On our recent trip to Los Angeles, Glenn and I stopped in Desert Center (pop. 125). On my drives from Phoenix to LA and back, I had passed this little green spot in the middle of nowhere and finally found the truth about the signs for Lake Tamarisk.
