A DAY OF REST: Inspirational Photography

Rural Central California hills.

One of the things I try to find the time to do is to get outside and take photos. I love photography, but as with so many things, it’s difficult to find the time. I love the solace. The peace. The intense concentration on a specific image. It allows me to clear my head and think–to enjoy the world around me. In fact, I get many of my ideas for stories, characters, and yes, murder scenes and bad guys too.

Here are a few of my favorite photographs. Remember, it’s important to take a day of rest. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by.

One of my favorite small beaches in Moss Landing, California.

A rural barn in Prunedale, California. A day that a friend and I took a back road–you never know what you’re going to find.

A Calla Lily growing in my yard. I happened to look out my window and the lighting was awesome.

One of my favorite small coastal towns in Morro Bay, California. I could just sit and watch these sunsets every day.

    Thank you for sharing! I am addicted to your books! Read one then ordered them all and am enjoying them immensely. Sorry you are in California with all that is happening, especially the salmon! We had to live in Marina del Rey for two years and I was very unhappy living there. Walking the Venice canals with my dog kept me sane! Now in Key West! Keep writing, you are amazing! Sincerely, Kelly

    • Thank you Kelly! I’m thrilled to hear that you are enjoying my books. We just moved out of the state a year ago and are currently living in Texas–at least for now 🙂 Life is an adventure. Thanks for stopping by.
