About Me

My photo
I have a great Interest in Photography, I love reading and learning, I enjoy many different ways of expressing my talents in art. I Like culinary food art, carving fruit and vegetables and catering parties. I like drawing and water coloring as well. Other activities I enjoy are dancing, golfing, racquetball and bowling. However, my favorite things to do is travel, eating out and taking pictures along the way. I am a member of the Nevada camera club. It is one of the best ways of learning Photography because you get to learn will doing. I learn so much from the other members, their classes and field trips. What pushes me the most is their competitions. I am currently learning photo shop on my computer, That might take me a few years though.

Our theme for March 11 is - Chaos! I have decided to show you A Nevada Camera club field trip I took last year, It was in Kelso, Cal.  It falls in to this theme because of time of decay, despair, turmoil and jumble.

The train no longer stops in this small town but we took a tour of the station it now a Museum and they preserved very nicely, there was a small cafe in side where most of us ate lunch.
Just a big pile of railroad ties
Even the tree's are up rooted.
Some times there was hardly any thing left of the house that use to be there.
This was on property that people still inhabited
 Total deconstruction and disarray.

It was sad  to see that town was deserted now.  Although in another way it was great that we got to see what it use to be and I love the old falling down buildings they have their own beauty.
The desert flowers were blooming they were so pretty.

 JarieLyn took this picture of me while we were there. It was a fun field trip.
 I would like to back there some day.

I hope you enjoyed the Chaos see you next time.

That looks so sad and yet from photographic/artistic point of view deserted old buildings can be such interesting subjects... Your photos are wonderful.

Thanks for including the desert blooms, they remind of life being able to survive after all.

Oh Yes....right up my falling down, rusty, jumbled and decaying alley! This is some of my favorite stuff to fact, it's close to what I chose to show for Chaos, too!

Your photos are artistic and beautiful with their chaotic subjects. Well done!

Hey, you found yourself in a really cool place for this assignment. The pile of railroad ties is a great example of chaos, and the broken-down buildings do have their own special character and beauty. Good work.

This is sad, yes but a perfect situation of this week's theme. These photos are great. Missed last weeks entry. That was very interesting. Sure good to see the colorful blooms.

I feel I know your family now, i looked at each photo and like that you have explained who is who, i might just do this on mine, if you don't mind. I met your cat and your dog and love both, checked out your blue ribbon winners and as far as I am concerned, this whole post on chaos contains a lot of blue ribbon winners. these are awesome shots. i assume you live in NV since you are in the NV camera club. I will be following you now that i have seen your photography.
