Second day of camping spent mostly in and around the Kings River. I love this picture because when i look at it, I could still hear the laughter. Despite all the ruckus, Cherrie seems unperturbed and focused at the task of catching our lunch.

Taken at 08/19/07.

Taken 8/18/07. Our first day of the camping trip. On this day we visited Boyden Cave. The boys (four of them) could not wait to see it. Here's one satisfied boy coming out of the cave right now.

Many times in the past I pass by the exit to Capitola. On this day, with some time to kill (we are getting back from attending the STRAWBERRY FESTIVAL in Watsonville) we decided to see what's going on with Capitola.

Capitola is a small coastal touristy town lined with shops, eats, etc. I took this while on the wharf. People fish and swim and sail. It was a beautiful day, but look on the background, the fog is starting to roll in. So typical of this part of California.

Well, for those who are buried under snow right now, or like us being rained on, this will remind you that summer will be here soon.

Taken 07/28/07 after the Giants-Marlins game. This was a shot of McCovey Cove on the way to the parking lot. This is the last time I saw Barry Bonds in a Giants uniform.

A scenic yet lonely road in the Alaska-Canada Border, taken May 31, 2007. I must admit that this is one of my very fave.

(Am currently blogging at the free internet area here in Changi Airport. We just landed and without sleep, I decided to blog and check email before even collecting our baggage. Hope all is well. Will blog more regularly next week and will start visiting your blogs again.)

Waterfalls created by melting snow can be seen all over the border of Alaska and Canada in the Yukon Territory. Part of the tour stopped at one of these waterfalls where every one was asked to sample the glacial water. Boy was it really refreshing, cold too.

I will take an unexpected break from blogging. Some things need to be addressed immediately and I will be back end of January, hopefully with one or two good photos to share.

Internet might not be accessible or easily available where I am going so I will also take a break from visiting and/or commenting on your blogs.

Cruising Tracy Arm fjord is an experience of a lifetime. But I bet these people in smaller vessel who were able to get closer than we could ever be had experienced sensation overload. Unfortunately, at this spot is the closest we could ever go as there are heavy floaters around. This too is where the ship turned around. It's a marvel how big cruise ships make it look and feel so easy turning around. Pic taken 5/30/07.

BTW, I am presenting my fave 12 that have not been previously posted. I do have some faves among those that I posted last year.

I finally found a series to start the year, My Top 12 Favorite Photos of 2007. These will be posted in no particular order. Well, maybe chronologically arranged. Plus, these are not chosen because of technical quality. Remember, these are my personal preferences.

Picture one is taken 03/25/07 somewhere along the length of Interstate 80, in the Sierra Nevada. I just love the combination of melting snow and barren trees.

I always welcome suggestion on how to make/take a picture better.

All Dressed Up



Happy New Year to every one. I am still in the holiday mode and having a hard time sitting down and coming up with new series for this blog. But I guess, I hardly taken pics of people in the past year, so I am beginning this year with people, some strangers but this initial posting is of people I love. One of my fave shots of the boys.
