This mornings walk was quite chilly with heavy frost attaching itself to everything. These fall leaves, one sitting on the other with the contrasting colors attracted my attention. The white frost attached to the edges added another dimension.

This photograph is of some pool houses at a local winery here in Sonoma County. I enjoyed the pattern they made and the contrasting colors.

As most of you know I publish the Tiny House Blog and along with that I promote some products to help make money to run the blog and help keep food on the table. I have recently been playing with publishing a few videos and decided to do a book review via a video. I am very new at this and have lots to learn but thought I would share it with the visitors to my personal blog. Feel free to critique it as I am open to any suggestions. Thanks for watching.

A few weeks ago I had the fun task of helping transport some of my wife’s fourth grade class on a field trip to Sonoma, California for a California history tour of the local missions and General Vallejo’s home and property.

With my interest in small and tiny buildings (see my Tiny House Blog) I really enjoyed several of Vallejo’s outbuildings such as the servant’s quarters shown here. If you are ever in Sonoma, this is a very enjoyable tour and I recommend it if you can take the time to explore it.

About six weeks ago I had the chance to join my friend Steve out on his boat and we spent the afternoon visiting and exploring the bay. On the return trip to the Berkeley Marina we were given a very beautiful sunset and it showed off the Golden Gate Bridge and made the water shimmer.

I wanted to wish everyone a happy new year! A friend of mine brought this video to my attention on Facebook. I’m a big fan of Keith Green, he really had a message for us all and it is a shame he died at such a young age. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. May 2011 be a year of blessing for you!

While on my walk the other day, I passed this leaf that had fallen recently and been drenched by a recent winter rain shower. I loved the way it’s bright red color contrasted with the brown dead leaves surrounding it.

Marin Headlands Bunkers

On our way down to San Francisco last week we made a stop just above the Golden Gate Bridge in the Marin Headlands. A short walk takes you to an overlook of the bridge and along the way you pass some old World War Two bunkers. After taking some pictures of the bridge we headed back to the car. The passage way back framed the old bunkers perfectly, so I took a quick picture. I thought it turned out well, what do you think?

Last week we took a little family trip to San Francisco. One of our stops was at the Cliff House above the Pacific Ocean. The ocean was beautiful and the Cliff House made a cool frame for it. This was one of my favorite pictures of the day.
