OK, I'm back from a great trip to Ventura, California. I visited my sister and her husband. They have a lovely condo ten minutes from the beach. Joni and I spent a lot of time at the beach. She got in the water with her wet suit, I didn't. We cruised downtown Ventura on Saturday during their Art Walk. I took close to 500 pictures and experimented with the lighting and settings because it's so different from our alpine desert. I downloaded my pictures on her computer which was a very good thing because when I got home and put my chip into the reader, guess what??? NO PICTURES! My husband who is very good with electronics couldn't find them either. So I made a call and Joni will be sending a CD with my jpegs on them. To get me started she emailed me some of my pictures. So although there are benefits to our electronic universe, there are drawbacks as well. If anyone can explain to me what is in a chip that goes bad, I'd be interested.
As a side note, I left hot and sunny weather and arrived to snow, wind and cold. Gotta love it all I suppose but sometimes I don't.
A rooftop view on my first day there.
Lots of surfers were out enjoying the water.
Surfers (disguised as little ants) are out in the water (click to enlarge).
We made a new friend.
I ran down to the beach one evening to get sunset shots too.
Thanks to my sister for helping me get started, lots more pictures will be posted when they are available.
