My name is Deborah Zajac. I'm a photographer living in Nevada at the base of the Eastern Sierras. I am a passionate nature, landscape, night/astro photographer. I shoot predominately in color and use Nikon Digital Cameras, and lenses.
I hope you enjoy seeing some of the photos I've taken while on my travels.
Please feel free to leave a comment I'd love to hear from you.
When ever I spy horseshoes the song I found a Horseshoe pops into my head.
I first learned the song when I was in 5th grade.
I don’t know who wrote it but its earliest known date is 1927. Have you heard it before? It goes like this-
“I found a horseshoe, I found a horseshoe, I picked it and nailed it to the door. And it was rusty and full of nail holes. Good luck twill bring to you for evermore.”
Fun fact: I have an old rusty full of nail holes horseshoe hanging over my front door. I’ve had one hanging over my door since the early 80’s. But I’m not superstitious or anything like that. Okay, I am a bit.🤪
It seems like an age ago that I shared an image for Thursday Doors or from our trip to London which was just this past January!
I’ve let some of these images marinate long enough. ☺ Here’s one.
One day we Ubered out to Hampton Court Palace the favorite palace of King Henry VIII. It’s 12 miles southwest and upstream from central London on the Thames River.
The drive there was lovely passing small towns and beautiful countryside.
This is an entrance to one side of the palace through the left door and the courtyard entrance in the center. I think the door on the right was a cloak closet, but it’s been awhile since being there that I’ve forgotten! I should have made more notes. It’s a palace I’d like to tour again one day.
Thursday Doors is the creation of Norm 2.0 Head on over to his blog to see many other doors from all over the world that other door lovers have shared.
Here are a couple of images I created for the Shooting for the Season’s course I’m taking.
Cozy dining table-
This week is lighting. I hope I can come up with a couple more creative and cute compositions for that!
Last week I went to Baby Girl’s for a few days and early one morning I had my morning tea on her deck, and had my camera handy. Out in the poison oak I spied a little bird so left my tea to cool on the deck and headed down to the field and sat on a little lichen covered rock and waited to see if the little bird would return to the poison oak bush. I didn’t have to wait too long.
It was a Ruby Crowned Kinglet Female.
Baby Girl and family are settling in nicely in their new home, and the boys love the space and freedom the land affords them, and number 1 Grandson is thrilled to be back in a live classroom making new friends, he likes his teacher, and he had a huge surprise on his first day in class. A classmate of his from last year has moved to the same town and is in his class! Small world!
It’s supposed to warm up today which will be nice since we’ve been having highs in the 50’s and lows in high teens lately.
I hope you’re all having a great week!
