The Golden State





California! Well done to Deedeen and Janet for guessing the correct State. Isn't my brother amazing to pay for this trip... Thanks Bro!

But where in California? Not San Francisco, though I was really wishing we'd had an extra week so I could have gone to visit Lisa and all the other amazing bloggers who live in the Bay area. We were based in one place and were always back there to sleep, so never more than half a day from the images I've been showing recently. Of course, they are images that drew my attention, not necessarily the ones that would catch the eye of other visitors. I reckon it'll take most of you 3 seconds to guess :)

First comment here although I'm reading every day for now... lost my count!
;o)

California is a great state... I went to last summer and we'll end this year summer trip in San Francisco.

I wanted to know if I could download your first picture, the colours are SO GREAT and exactly what I'm looking for the re-decorating of my living room.
So I'll put your picture on the first page of my little "research booklet" that I'll use for the (long term) project.

Thanks for your so nice blog!

Oh, Cally, this is too fun! I am thinking that some of those photos were taken in Joshua Tree State Park...so maybe LA or San Diego?!?!?

i almost guessed Mexico or Northern Arizona at one point, but if it was either, you'd be showing other things... The snow made me think Arizona because up high at the Canyons it can snow, and if you drive a few hours down south (still in Arizona) it can be 100 degrees...its stunning there! Silent.

Thanks for all your many many comments on my blog- it was so nice to get comments on so many different posts. It made me realise I haven't been popping in here and commenting on all your mystery photos, even though i've been enjoying them each time you post one. You are so lucky to have a brother that takes you to California!

You have such a good eye for colours, textures, patterns, lines, and I can see how that fed into the artwork you used to make. When you’re better and ready to create again you’ll have a huge store of images to draw on, engraved in your brain and on your chips. You make every tiny view a feast, be it self-made sandwich fillings with red tomato-ball about to erupt, the tips of your milk-orange trainers against grey or amoebic mutating pavement patterns. Just gorgeous to come here and see some of what you’ve seen and filtered out for us.
