Portrait of Ann-1

I met Ann when I went to make pictures of poppies (see below), and she happened to come to the same location, at the same time, to do the same thing. However, she probably made much better pictures than I made because, as a landscape photographer, she made photographs to successfully sell at an event in Carlsbad, California, USA. She also had a much better camera.

Ann was a retired school principal from West Wind Elementary School in the Lancaster School District. She was an elementary school principal for 15 years, and prior to that, she was a teacher for 15 years. She graduated from Antelope Valley High School and San Diego State University.

At the time of this posting, Ann lived in San Diego, California, USA, but she was born and raised in Lake Hughes, California, USA. She made pictures of the poppies almost every year and came up from San Diego this year just to enjoy the magnificent harvest.

Ann’s lovely landscape photography may be seen on her website Photo’s by Ann.

About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

    What a great photo. The poppies are such a nice color. I’ve never seen a field of poppies like that around here – so pretty!

  13. Amazing portrait of Ann,it looks like you gently lowered her in the middle of the poppies and wild flowers. Also excellent picture of the poppie field and great write up on Ann who I knew thru working for the school district for many years. The poppies do look amazing.
