Greetings from Southern California.

I am your newest follower.

God bless and have a nice day :-)

What a great capture! The water, the sky, the sun, the birds........ Very nice.

What do you mean, take "proper pictures"????????????????? :-)

This looks like a very proper picture, indeed, to me................................... :-)

Marie this sounds like a trip of a lifetime. So many wonderful places and people to practice your photography skills upon. I'm really looking forward to seeing some of your photos transformed into digital art.

Very beautiful with the brilliant sky and those birds! The weather has been strange across the whole country, I'd say. Your new class sounds incredibly exciting! Good for you :-)

Wonderful and brilliant photo, Marie! You are a great photographer, as always, but it is always good to learn more and more. Have fun with your workshop!

What a lovely photo. My internal seasonal clock is having a hard time realizing it's really winter in Michigan, but I'm enjoying the balmy temperatures.

the weather is definately off here, all fall and no winter

beautiful photo, I agree that the sun is beautiful. I got out in it here too. The class sounds delish! Good for you. I love learning and am hoping to learn more about 'proper' photography myself although winging it is still tons of fun.

Marie, how gorgeous are your images? I mean, it's not a surprise so much as a re-awakening of how incredibly awesome they are!

Yes, weather has been weird. It might have to do with climate change or it might be because I did a weird kind of dance on the street the other day. That probably wouldn't translate to the east coast, but weirder things have happened. it's weird.

My point being that I LOVE that camera of yours! holy moly! That thing looks too good to eat. Please share every image from it. Even then ones you take with the lens cap on.


p.s. maybe other people don't do that?

The weather is bizarre but beautiful! I'm so happy to put winter off for another few days. Your photo is gorgeous! You and I share the same goals this year...I also want to learn how to properly use my camera. I can't just "point and shoot" forever! Have a lovely Sunday~~

Yes - the weather has been strangely wonderful this year..and your photo definitely attests to that. Can't wait to hear about the photo class. I'm betting on it being absolutely amazing..enjoy!!!

Correct me if I'm wrong but does that mean you are taking said workshop with David N in Venice? If so then that is an over the top dream come true!

Love the photo, all golden invitation, sounds like a wonderful place to spend some time.

We are also not having a real winter, more heavy fall, even have flooding in our country at the moment... not me thank God
