Volunteered to photograph a group of women participating in the
Destiny Makeover program. The photo shoot was held at the
St. Regis Hotel in Dana Point - what an environment. I only

Robert drove me up to Antelope Valley to the Poppy Preserve this afternoon. As we got closer to the preserve I could see that the poppies had their faces shuttered. I thought perhaps the sun was too low in the sky, but when we parked I quickly learned why. The strong winds had stripped them of their pretty crinoline skirts and left only the center petals wrapped tightly around their bodies, it was the end of the season. I was sad, but decided to shoot anyway - I'll remember to go a little earlier next year.
I have a few more images from the day posted on my Flickr Photostream
