My view from the buffer zone


I had the honor of being the official photographer of President Bill Clinton’s visit to Reno last Friday evening at the Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows. Rain and threatening snow, nor the relatively late-in-the-evening start time, did not keep people away. It was a full house, with a packed overflow room as well.

These guys have a tough job to do, and they do it with grace.


In order to keep myself shooting each day, I’ve started to participate in the MissionPic daily challenge.  Yesterday’s one word challenge was “tiny.”

A little trinket my husband gave me years ago.  Froggy hangs out with me at work.

You can join in on the fun too. Go to, download the app, and get started.

We are getting a lot of this

Not much in this photo, but, yeah, El Niño is doing what we were hoping for … adding much-needed snow pack to the Sierra Nevada and bringing a lot of wet to the lower elevations. I’m looking forward to a beautiful spring!
