A Vacation in the Woods with a World of Music You may have noticed that I haven’t posted in a while. That is because I was in the Mendocino Woodlands camp for the 31st year of Lark Camp, an annual festival of world music unlike anything else! I...
Preserving Image Assets into the 22nd Century and Beyond After all is said and done here, we all feel a need to preserve our photography as a record of our existence! It is a way of announcing to the world that “we matter,” and it also offers us a sense of continuity...

Join Bobbi and Lee for a luxury tour of Iceland with Focus on Nature.
Iceland is truly the land of fire and ice—one of the reasons it was used for many of the locations in the hit HBO series “The Game of Thrones!” Iceland reaches down into your soul and touches you in a profound and subtle way. There is a quiet drama besides the spectacular glaciers, mountain, and seashore. The soft green cliffs and fields that stretch to the water are speckled with sheep and the multitude of waterfalls adds to the visual delight. This is pristine and primal Earth, fueled by geothermal and absolutely pure water, and is a reminder of the strength and beauty of the planet.
