Travelling SuperZoom wants to Continue the Journey

I received the Olympus Superzoom 105G from my @EMULSIVE Secret Santa.  And it turns out that the Camera had a Story to tell:

Here is a summary from my introductory letter pictured below:

"....This camera has a bit of a history in that it's spent the last few month travelling the length and breadth of  of the United Kingdom (and even got to the south of France on one leg of it's journey) as a part of a project on an online photography forum. The camera was loaded with a roll of film, the first person shot five frames, and then the camera was sent on to the next person.  The process repeated (with a half-way set of photos when a second roll of film was loaded) until it eventually got back to me.........."







So If you are interested in continuing the Journey, Contact me.......

Wednesday Windows......Getting Started with a New Series

#WednesdayWindows

I follow the Thursday Doors posting on Twitter and Wordpress.  But I am more of a Window person and I found a Wednesday Windows Twitter Group.  So I'm picking this up as a new posting series.

My Take on Windows may be a bit different from the usual postings by the group.  But let's go!

I'll start with a Favorite Window from the Past........

Stocking Up On.......Foods

We went to the store this morning to stock-up on food.  Hoping not to go out much during the next two weeks.  They had restocked overnight, but by 11:00 AM this morning it had been emptied again...

 Above: and it seemed like everyone had to have Pasta.......



Vegetables (above) and Meats (below) were also ravaged......

Final Scenes Around Santa Catalina Island: Part I

We start with the Casino, where you can take Ghost Tours.  Something that I will try to do on my next visit.  The word 'casino' means gathering place, not the gambling we typically think of.  So there was never gambling.  It is a Theater and Event Center, and always has been.

Catalina Island Menagerie

Lots or Birds, Fish and seasonally Whales and Seals.  But on land you'll be fortunate to see the local Foxes (which climb trees) and the Bison that were introduced in the early 1900's.  I highly recommend taking the Catalina Island Conservancy Tour.

We were lucky to see the Foxes before they went climbing:


You'll remember the critter proof trash containers that featured the Foxes:




And the Bison, originally brought there for a movie I believe:

Santa Catalina Island

On our Summer California Trip we decided to visit Santa Catalina Island.  We certainly want to go back and spend more time.


I'm going to begin my posts with scene from a Jeep Tour we took with the Catalina Island Conservancy.  They own most of the Island (Thanks to Mr Wrigley) and it is the only way to see the interior.


The Beach at the Two Harbors Area:



Below, interesting Geology.  The Island has a volcanic origin and this appeared to be a volcanogenic sulfide deposit:
