First Post – My Roots The date of my first post with Passion for Photos happens to fall on my birthday. I wanted to post an image that means something personal to me and reflects my “roots”. I was born and raised in Bishop, which is on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. This image includes a field similar to ones I played in as a child, Mt. Tom (highest peak on the right) which was the view out the front window of my childhood home, and the beautiful “Sierra Wave”. The Eastern Sierra is one of my favorite places to photograph, and I’m thankful to be able to call it home.
