Off on an Adventure

If everything went according to plan yesterday, I will be waking up in San Diego, California this morning on the first stop of a travel adventure which will cover five western US states over the next three weeks. This trip is in celebration of my wife and mine’s 30th Wedding Anniversary.  We are going to checkoff several items off our Bucket List on this trip. 🙂

My wife’s favorite animal is the Giant Panda who we will be visiting at the world famous San Diego Zoo today.

Would like to thank Barry Wallis for the use of his Panda photo.

With such a long trip, I knew I could not keep up with my current blog schedule of three posts a week.  I solicited the help of my blogmates and, for the next three Fridays, there will be guest posts from fellow photobloggers.  The subject of each post will be very interesting and cover topics and places much different than I have ever photographed or blogged about. I am sure you will enjoy them.

I am planning on keeping up with my weekly View posts on Mondays and might throw in a few bonus posts using the new Pressgram app for WordPress bloggers.  I will also be posting photos and commentary on Twitter as @sthomasphotos and @Scottwdw and on Google+.

We Made It! 

I wanted to share a beautiful Pacific Ocean sunset.  Alas, the weather did not cooperate so I settled for a Blue Hour photo of the Ocean Beach Fisherman’s Pier instead. Hope you don’t mind.
