September 21, 2016 – Totally not in the mood to write a blog post this week, so I’ll just give you the Landscape Low shot and some others taken over the weekend at Joshua Tree National Park. The trees look like invading aliens shot from a low perspective, don’t you think? (more…)

FEATURED BLOG POST
Beginning of the year, I took on the challenge of taking a photograph a week according to an assignment for the entire year: The Dogwood 52 Week Photo Challenge. Each week I’ll blog about the photo I made, and the challenges faced, like this photo, week one’s assignment of a self portrait. Check out why I decided to join!

Week 37: Portrait Fashion
// Lori // Random Stuff No Responses
September 14, 2016 – Sometimes the Universe perfectly aligns and the photo challenge drops into my lap, like this week’s Portrait Fashion. A fellow moto-girl (and phenomenal photographer) announced her new line of American-Made women’s coveralls (check them out here) so of course I immediately pre-ordered mine and guess when they came? Yep. This week. AND… she asked for a picture of me wearing them. Two birds; one stone. (more…)
Week 36: Artistic Food
September 7, 2016 – Food. Oh glorious food! Food is a big part of my life. Huge. Okay, yeah yeah, food is big part of everyone’s life. But Brian and I really like making food from scratch, nothing processed, minimal restaurants, taking things back to the basics, so this week’s challenge was a fun one. Artistic Food. (more…)

Prettiest time is certainly spring, when the cacti sprout insanely gorgeous flowers, so incongruous to the splines. Even without the flowers, though, there is still beauty in the thorny patterns, especially when backlit by the sun. (more…)
Week 34: Portrait Child
August 24, 2016 – Oh boy. I seriously worried about this one. I have no children in my life. Zero. And photographing random kids on the street just seems… weird. Lucky for me, I was at the Santa Ana Public Library covering a news story, and it so happened they were hosting an event celebrating the readers in the community, complete with pizza party and a magician, and lots of cameras. I could have gone with sweet and laughing and charming, but man! This girl’s stink eye is too funny, so she became my Portrait Child. (more…)
