Photo Ops:

As many of you know, I am a very big lover of our states' beauty and natural resources. That's why I would like to apologize for not setting up a meetup for you to capture the often overlooked natural beauty located ion our state.I would liked to have taken you all out to either Death Valley, Antelope Valley, the California Poppy Reserve, so you can see the state at its best.

The wildflowers that bloom in February and March are something to see, and not to be taken for granted. Wildflowers can even transform a vacant lot just by their presence. During this time I usually go out and capture images of wildflowers. I'm amazed by them showing up in the most unusual places, so you can see how our land will try and revive itself by poking out these beauties called poppies. If you have looked at some of the images from this time last yea. I asked all of you to look around and capture images of our states��� most productive time for growth. http://www.parks.ca.gov/mediagallery/?src=../pages/627/images/P1010176_low.jpg&id=6628&RecordPage=3&SearchPerformed=0&displayCnt=8&page_id=627&viewtype=4&previousView=4#6628

This link, that I have supplied to you, will give you a chance to go out and possibly view some of the blossoms that are still blooming during this time. If you go please upload your images to our site. Also for others who want to capture the wildflowers in the city of Los Angeles.

I do love that many of you have understood the importance of creating your own markets, and producing your own products. Looking at many of the e-mails that I have received with links to our member���s sites, I have come across many new products. For sure we do not have Photophobia, and can get the job done when needed.
