Right now in Northern California no one is shooting pictures. We’re experiencing a series of storms. I’m not complaining! My go-to-practice place, Dry Creek, has water past its shore line, and there are flood warnings in place for the rivers and other creeks.

Being stuck inside has its advantages, I’m catching up on a few things, completing this post and giving you exciting news.

For the exciting news: I’m being featured on, Australian photographer, Leanne Cole’s Blog, Introductions post this week. I’ve known Leanne since I started shooting and had the privilege of shooting with her when she visited the U.S. last September. She’s given me advice and watched my progress these 4 years. The post will appear in the States on Monday and Tuesday across the ocean. You can find the post at http://leannecolephotography.com/.

I’ve also submitted an article for the upcoming Dynamic Range digital photography magazine for women in the coming issue. This is a great magazine full of information and beautiful photography. And, you don’t have to be a woman to enjoy it. Check it out!

Now, back to this post’s continuation. Today I have pictures from Schweitzer Grove and McKinley Park. Schweitzer Grove is a 17-acre park tucked into suburbia, and McKinley park is known for its rose garden.  Fortunately, there are people and other flowers at the park. Take a look while I continue to catch up on things.

  1. Awesome post on Leanne’s blog, Anne. Congratulations! Leanne has been a friend of mine for four years also, and I also met her when she first flew into San Jose. I have to admit that I’m jealous – a whole day! I live south of Fresno outside a small town called Woodlake in the foothills. 🙂 Look forward to getting acquainted. 🙂


    1. Thank you Marsha. Yes, I looked up your blog. We’re not too far from each other. Would you be willing to travel to shoot. My friend and I are going to the Sonora area to shoot for a few days. I have another friend who lives there, and she and her husband are going to shoot with us. Maybe you could join us for one of the days. March 28 – 31. Let me know.

      1. I would love to, but I am already scheduled at that time. My husband and I are planning a much needed trip to the coast. Please keep me posted. I would love to travel and shoot with you. What a wonderful opportunity! 🙂


  2. Okay. Our Camera Totin’ Tuesday group goes out every Tuesday, but we only go 1 or 2 hours from Sacramento. Maybe we can schedule to meet somewhere in between on a weekend.
