I See Nature Best through the Lens of My Camera
Photography is my hobby. My favorite subject is nature. I especially find myself attracted to various aspects of the sky, our local Salinas River, and trees -- especially oak trees with unusual shapes. My other favorite subject is wine country. I live surrounded by vineyards. I walk through them at all seasons of the year, snapping pictures as I go. That doesn't mean I limit my pictures to these subjects. I will shoot anything interesting that appears, including the neighbors cats, the weeds in my yard, and special events i attend.
My camera has helped me look more closely at the world around me. I am more aware of details I might not notice otherwise. I enjoy sharing my photos and videos in guided web tours and by creating Zazzle products. Zazzle is a print on demand web store where I make many of these photos and more available as products you can customize to suit yourself.
I now have two Zazzle stores: Barb's California Card and Gift Gallery, and California Wine Country Memories and Gifts. Both stores sell greeting cards, posters, jigsaw puzzles, cases for mobile devices (including iPads), t-shirts, aprons, stationery, household accessories, Messenger bags, wedding invitations, tableware -- you name it. New products are added every day where you can choose from millions of designs on hundreds of different product types and customize them to suit yourself. You can add text, change what's there, or remove the text completely. I invite you to visit my stores and see if anything looks interesting. Almost every day one or more products have special sales, so it pays to check in often.
Many of the pictures I take I use to illustrate articles I write on other sites, such as Squidoo transfer HubPages Account and my original HubPages account. Many of these are on nature subjects. I will includes links to these on the pages of this web site. I hope you will follow me through the world of nature, my local community of San Luis Obispo County, and wherever I may go on my travels. This site will be arranged thematically.
