My first commission (well sort of a commission) came from my son and daughter-in-law. “We want a lot of your pictures in our new house,” Greg said. Jess was more detailed–vineyards and oak trees. So, I waited until the leaves on the grapevines were green and the grapes were maybe turning color.
My first effort was going to Plymouth in Amador County to search the vineyards closer to home. We had some success. But first we went to Michigan Bar Road and that nice farm. I’ve posted pictures from it in this blog before, so for those who have followed me for a long time, you’re not experiencing deja vu! If you’re new to this blog, here’s your chance! I did try to take a different view of it.
We then went to the Amador Flower Farm where I found a beautiful old oak, and flowers for close ups. The close ups were done with my 18 – 200mm lens. (Yes, I’m keeping it!).
Now for the wineries. They were all located on Shenandoah Rd and it was an easy ride. I think Jess will be happy with some of these.
My search didn’t stop here. Next post: Napa Valley!

Very nice series – great closeups and compositions. Keep ’em coming, Anne!
Thanks -N-! As long as I can walk and hold a camera, they’ll keep coming!

Beautiful series, Anne! I love all those bright colors, they are so summery!!!
And it is very sweet from your son to think of you to decorate their home!!! It always put a smile on my face when I visit my sister’s apartment and I see my photos on her wall… It’s such a nice feeling to know that your family is proud of your art work 🙂
Thank you Mercedes. Yes, when you see your photos on someone else’s wall that’s a wonderful confirmation of your effort and talent. Yours should be hanging everywhere!
