Back Home

I'm back home safe and sound from my long weekend in Cambria. I was able to play with my camera a little and get most of my photography class homework done. And as a side benefit I got some nice pictures to boot!

Not all of the pictures on today's blog are my homework pictures, in fact most of them aren't. I can't think fast enough to try and figure out what setting I need, as when the wild turkeys came marching through the yards one day. For them the camera was on "auto", or as my photography instructor calls it "the little green box".

Friday afternoon we went to the Farmer's Market. I'm still kind of shy about whipping out the camera when there's a lot of people around, and especially taking photos of the specific booths. But the colors were so fabulous I forced myself.

Saturday we went to Harmony and visited the glass blowers' shop and the pottery shop. There were some good photo ops there and I noticed I wasn't the only one snapping away.
Tomorrow I'll share some more pictures I took from some of our walks (the birds, the ocean, the trees) and a surprise shot I was lucky enough to get.

Great picures. Looks like a nice trip. A few years ago I drove along the coast between San Fran & Los Angeles. Is seems like I remember a sign for Cambria. Would I have gone through it, or near it?
Is it near Morrow Bay & San Louis Obispo? These towns were a favorite area of mine & I want to go back to that area sometime.

Carol, you remember correctly. Cambria is just north of those two cities and just a few miles south of Hearst Castle in San Simeon. It is beautiful but like all coastal areas quite expensive. I'm lucky to have a friend who owns a little cottage there and invites me to join her for the weekend every so often!
