Greetings from California

Guess what? I'm in California for work this week! Good-bye cold, good-bye snow, good-bye coat! Hello warmth! Here are some shots from my flight...I'm pretty sure we flew over the Grand Canyon on the first leg of my flight (to Phoenix).

The little plane that could (not start...)

For those of you who don't know when I'm not moonlighting as a photographer,  I actually spend my days being a geologist. Yup...I am a real life geologist! I get funny reactions all the time when I mention what I do to people...apparently you just don't meet that many hip and happin' lady geologists...anyhoooo, today was the day I was going to get to go for a little plane ride for my geologist job. I truly mean little plane ride folks...this was a little two seater with room for the pilot + co-poliot (ME!) SO. EXCITED. I even dreamt about it last night. Welllll, we get to the airport, and get to the plane, and get into our seats, and put our headsets on...and the plane won't start. Alas, it was too cold for the little plane that could (not start). Hopefully next week i'll be lucky, and we'll try round two, and I'll have pictures from up in the air. The pictures today are brought to you from the ground.

One of my new favorite things to follow while I'm at work is a blog called "Bus2Antarctica" from a fellow at National Geographic. It details his adventures while riding a bus from Washington DC allll the way to Antarctica. So. Cool. What the hecka does this have to do with pictures you say? Well...I think I've always had a secret desire to take pictures for National Geographic. Photojournalism is something I'd like to do a little more of...so today's post is my attempt to play National Geographic explorer...haha, yeah right...I'll work on it :) I call this one "CarRide2Pittsburgh". ALMOST as cool as Antartica. Almost.

Always be prepared...

This Saturday I taught a little photography class, and we had a great time! Lesson #1 learned for both students AND teacher...always be prepared a.k.a.make sure you have a full charged battery...or a back-up battery :) My students did a great job though, and we all took some great shots! I love passing on some of my photography tips and tricks to others...so if you have questions...feel free to email me!

This last one I can't take credit for...well because it's me! I just really liked the emotion in the picture...and my eyes aren't closed :)

The Giving Tree...

Random-picture-of-the-day-that-I-liked part 2: The Giving Tree. Have you ever read it? It was a favorite of mine as a little girl! I don't know why that story came to mind when I saw this tree...but I thought it was a lovely tree.

The tree gave, and gave, and gave"...and the tree was happy."

Up in the Air

Random-picture-of-the-day-that-I-liked part 1: Up in the AIR!  Mmmmm, I think I'm getting the "office/January is SO long and bla" blues, and am itchin' to hop on a plane and go somewhere! (somewhere WARM!) Anyone else feeling the same way?

Exploring Salt Lake with the M Family

I met the M family on Saturday in Salt Lake, and even though it was a tad cold, I had a great time taking some family pictures for them! Here's a sneak peak...

The W Family

This little family is so cute! I LOVE this first picture of them!

Riding off into the Sunset

A good photographer should never be caught without her camera! Luckily I rushed home and caught the tail end of a beautiful sunset tonight!
