One lonely picture for my Lounge friends.....couldn't downsize it.......
It's a view of Palos Verdes Peninsula, with Catalina Island in the misty distance. I took it today, from the Manhattan Beach Pier....

1. I grew up on a farm in Montana.
The first job I had off the farm was at a flower shop.
I learned the importance of composition and color.

You capture the elemental components of an image
quite eloquently, my friend.

:thumbsup:

And it looks just a little too cold to jump into.

3. My dear Ptah!
Your praise nearly takes my breath away! Thank you......

Oh my .....*fans self*


I'm sure it is too cold to jump into..I would not ever consider such a thing, esp. since Jaws!


It was a lot of fun down by the beach today. I felt so free, and unencumbered......

Just me and my camera....good times, good times.....

14. I had an aunt, uncle and four cousins that lived in
Westminster. It was such a change of pace to visit
them in December (living in Montana.)
Hunginton Beach is still my favorite
sand.

I am settling in far faster than I thought I would. I think I belong here, and that's an excellent feeling.

I still need to meet my first DUer though...hint, hint. ;) :hug:

20. I do love grand vistas
Something about looking out over the water gets my mind to wandering about things on the other side. It sort of keys off meditation for me.

What a serene photo, all that lovely blue staring at me, inviting me to look a little longer, all that lovely blue staring at me, inviting me ...

12. My dear Straight Shooter!
I am truly moved by your remarks! I'm so glad you like my photo, and that you find it hypnotizing!

And looking at it isn't either illegal, immoral or fattening! :pals:

23. I have saved your photo to my "Photos To Print" folder
It will be included on a CD and sent to a photo lab for processing as a small picture for framing. I truly think it's gorgeous. :)

21. Ah, my dear Heidi!
I thank you so much! I do agree that the blue is soothing.

When I said lonely, I meant that I only had one pic to post....

I normally like to post several, and I did take more than one today that was worthy.

BUT the stupid Photobucket would not let me transfer more than just this one pic...oh well. :shrug:


:loveya: :hug:
