Nifty Fifty Fun

I’ve recently decided to start using my 50mm lens more often and I’m really having fun with it. Here are a few photos from a recent motorcycle ride to Julian, CA. BTW: The apple pie was delicious :-) Enjoy!

Animal Rescue Friends (ARF) of Idyllwild

Bill and I have been volunteering at ARF (Animal Rescue Friends) in Idyllwild. ARF is a non-profit, no-kill, volunteer organization dedicated to the rescue of lost, unwanted and abandoned pets. While most of the dogs available for adoption are kept in foster homes, we have a cattery at the ARF office. These pictured cats are up for adoption and they are all so very sweet. We’d adopt them, but we already have two cats and a puppy so we’re full :-) If you’re interested in adopting a cat or dog, please call ARF at 951-659-1122. You can also visit their website at:

UPDATE: Poppy, the little all black cat in this gallery, was adopted today. We hope he has a wonderful life in his new forever home.
