I want everyone to know that I have a new e-mail address.  lorrainenilsonart@att.net    In the month of December I have had two computer failures.  I have lost a lot of work, which I hope is still setting  waiting to be recovered. 
I will be back up and running by the end of January. 
I hope to recover all of my old work plus have some new work from Death Valley and Yosemite in the snow.
 I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and have a Happy and Healthy New Year.

Oct 9th 2013 Photo Trip

Had a great time.  The snow closed our route home but the long drive was worth the extra time, for how nice everything looked.
This is my my newest passion,  Infra-red images.  I h
Yesterday I went to San Francisco to Pier 24.  On the way home I  stopped at Treasure Island to photograph "Bliss Dance"  (Seen Below.)  I had fun walking all around her and photographing all the different colors the lights turn.  For more info google --- Bliss Dance.

Please try to stop by the Gallery to see all of the great work and workshops being offered over the next 30 days.  EDGES PHOTO EXHIBIT.  (I have 14 of my Nature up Close images on display.
This is a reminder of our upcomming reception.  It is also a preview of two more images.  The one on the left is Barbara's Flags from Bodie.  The one on the right is my newest Star Tails over Mono Lake.  We just delivered 34 new images to add to the 38 the Gallery had.  We hope to see all our friends on the 8th.
I haven't posted anything on my space for awhile because I have been busy getting new work together for an exhibit in Sonora.  I also wanted everyone to come to the Gallery rather than say she has all of the work on the web & not go to see it.  Hope you can come!
I have posted pictures from the Gay Parade.  I hope you like them.  It was a long day, but a lot of fun.  Everyone was so gracious.  San Francisco knows how to  celebrate. 
Sunday, June 24th, is the Gay Pride parade in San Francisco.  This is one of the best photo op's of the year for street photography.  Everyone is joyous!  It is NOT JUST FOR GAY PERSONS, but for anyone who feels we all matter and should be free to express ourselves.  I will be posting new pic's soon.

I also should be getting film back in the next few days from my trip last fall.  This is of star trails over Mono lake.  (Remember film? I only use it now for night photography.)  You can tell I haven't been out at night for a long time.
