With Spring on its way we are seeing more and more flowers this year with the help of a little rain. The Photography session has went on-site to different locations and are developing a strong sense of of on-site photography. One participant traveled to Yosemite and is woking on framing 2 images here at My Voice Media Center of part of his journey. Another participant was able to attend the Lewis Hill Flower Walk in February where we walked to the top of Lewis Hill in Tulare County, near Springville and Porterville.

There are opportunities all around us in the months following winter where there is sun and April flowers. Even in the months of February and March we have discovered opportunities for artists to take their camera's out. Painting, using pastels and drawing from these photographs can be a lot of fun, too!
