    Wow, having to have police direct traffic for the viewing of wildflowers says a lot about the popularity of the event. I know first hand about professional photographers that don’t care if they get in the way of other people pr what they trample just to get their photos. Your photos are very good and thanks for sharing as always.

      Thanks, Carl! YES, it was like queuing up for one of the more popular rides at Disneyland. 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words about my pictures. I love sharing stories about my adventures, and throwing open the shutters to the larger world in which we live. I try to be respectful of my subjects and authentic in my storytelling.

      Some photographers have other goals in mind, of course, but I think it’s possible (for example) to pursue financial gain without trampling other people’s rights and/or the beautiful sights all around us. I don’t know how to call people back to a gentle way of doing things, but maybe if we lead by example…

    This was a beautiful post on every level, Melodye. I had no idea poppies could be orange0 I thought they were all red. Thanks for taking us along on your sightseeing trip!

      So kind of you to say, Carol. And I’m so glad you came along for the ride, virtually at least. It’s fun to see your window on the world, and I love sharing mine.

      Lake Elsinore really put the gold in Golden State this week, didn’t it?
