Back to School?

It's coming, we all know it. We can't forestall it. School is coming soon! Here are some products that may help get into the swing of things.

First, one for the teachers.
It even has a quote: Teaching is the profession that teaches all the other professions. ~Author Unknown

A cute little Koala bear seems to say I don't wanna go back to school! I remember that feeling myself. I shot this image at the San Diego Zoo.

What a cool picture of this polar bear. Shot him at the San Diego Zoo as well.

I forgot what animal this is but, it's at the Zoo!

This wise old elephant looks as if he teach us a thing or two about life!

Just Ducky!

Ever wish everything was just ducky? Now it can be. At least on a T-shirt...
I shot this really cute baby duck at the zoo when we were there this month. Had a great time with my daughter and her family.

Busy busy busy... We went to the coast last week... I have some photos I'll be posting on flickr of our outing. More importantly, I participated this week in ABC's Vacation Bible School. What a hoot! The youth of ABC did a bang up job providing a fun and energetic program for the kids. I have a bunch of photos from Wednesday evening that are posted on flickr. I did the sound and multi-media the other nights I could attend.

I have a friend at ABC that cuts gemstones. I've seen his work and it is really nice. Guess what? He asked me to shoot some photos of his work. I made some attempts this week but I wasn't pleased with the results. I may go ahead and post a couple this weekend.

Work has been busy, lots of OT and I'm looking forward to retiring soon. September 29 come on!

more floral products to enjoy!

I shot this in our back yard... we have some really cool wildflowers. We bought them in the seed mat thing that we laid on the ground and just watered. A bunch of really beautiful wildflowers came up this year.

I shot this flower on an outing in the local mountains near Seven Oaks, CA.

A dandy little dandelion... actually it was a large one. At least 3 inches across! I found this patch of dandies in the local mountains near Seven Oaks, CA.

Some new things

I was walking the beach at sunset when this beautiful view confronted me. Wouldn't it look nice on your wall or desk?

Same beach, same day... still a beautiful sight to behold. Make it yours for the enjoyment!

I really enjoyed that evening's stroll along the beach. The gulls were active and, we saw a school of porpoise frolicking just outside the surf. What an incredible sight!

Another view of the same sunset. It was a wonderful end to a long day...

Today's new things

A gerbera daisy that was in the front yard. Nice, eh?

A beautiful wildflower growing in our backyard. I just wish I knew what it is called.

A couple of things added today

I took the picture for this while fishing in Rush Creek in the June Lake Loop.

This image is Crystal Crag, which overlooks Lake George in the Mammoth Lakes Basin.

The flaming rose from our front yard.

More New Labels I'm Designing

Another of my favorite rose shots. My wife held the background up and I shot it. Turned out soooo nice...

This daisy was in our front yard. Spectacular blooms on these plants.

A winter scene from last year. Yucaipa is a beautiful area, located at the foot of the San Bernardino Mountains. The blue sky and peaks above, the green valley below. What a photo.

Went to Mammoth last year. When we drove up to the condo, a pair of these were grazing next to the condo. Amazing!
