I'm working on an assignment for my class this week. I need to make three images of a "place", so all this week I'll be making my early morning pre-sunrise dash out to my favorite spot at the Loch Lomond Harbor Spit on San Pablo Bay. Wish me luck. (Update--a visit to Marin Civic Center changed the subject of my assignment--stay tuned.

It's just me and the birds at that hour. I believe my feathered friends are beginning to accept me as one of their own. Quackity, quack, quack.

But when it comes down to it, they can fly and I only wish I could. Those are Pelicans in the photo, but it's probably time that I dust off and crack open my aging copy of Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

Well, thank you, Stine... Yes, you are always welcome in Marin County -- beyond the beauty of the area is the beauty of the people who live here. And by beauty I mean their mental attitude -- we try to cooperate and remember that we all have some sort of common goal. At least, that's the plan...

Amazing captures! Really neat shots. Very creative captures. I remember my childhood days because of this sceneries.
