A cosmic coincidence to start the New Year

Tuesday, January 15th, 2013

Picture: Jet airplane with contrail flying through high cirrus clouds and a rainbow known as a circumzenithal arc, in the skies above Lake Tahoe, Nevada Back in 2005, after 15 years of shooting professional transparency film, I entered the digital era when I purchased my first DSLR, which at the time was Nikon’s first high-end […]

My, how time flies…

Wednesday, January 13th, 2010

Picture: Air Force planes on display at the “Century Circle” near the main entrance gate to Edwards Air Force Base, near Mojave, California The saying goes, “My, how time flies when you’re having fun.” Right now, my slightly modified version reads, “…or working your backside off.” I feel kinda bad having taken a bunch of […]

Houston, we have a problem… disappointment.

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Picture: X-15 NASA Experimental Rocket Plane and storm clouds, NASA Dryden Flight Research Center, Edwards AFB, near Mojave, California. How do you deal with photographic disappointment? What happens when you go after a shot with a certain set of expectations, and then you are totally foiled in your attempts to get that shot? I faced […]

Picture: FAA Saftey Crews working on runway approach lights below a jet airplane landing at LAX, Los Angeles, California I had mentioned previously regarding my recent Southern California Coast trip, that some of my favorite images taken over the nine days were some of the very last one’s I took. Furthermore, they had nothing to […]

I knew from experience during last year’s summit in Palm Springs that there would likely be very little time for actual photography during the […]

Crashed and burned on the end of the Runway

Friday, January 25th, 2008

Picture: Stunt plane in spinning free fall maneuver. Just over a week ago I posted a blog entry that showed an airplane that had run off the side of a runway. I used that image to tie in an analogy of some computer crashes I’d been experiencing. I also include comments regarding my experience with […]

Houston, we have a problem

Thursday, January 17th, 2008

Picture: Airplane crash landing on side of runway after gear failure, Eureka, Humboldt County, California What does this photo have in common with my computer? They both crashed. I have one guilty pleasure for computer games, namely Microsoft’s Flight Simulator. It’s a relaxing diversion while working on other things in my office, and fills a […]

Photo: Taking Flight in a Balloon over the Napa Valley

Saturday, December 9th, 2006

Picture: Hot Air Ballon and storm clouds at sunrise over vineyard near Oakville, Napa Valley, California. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve just completed an overdue update to my website, including a number of new online photo galleries. The first gallery I’d like to introduce is the Napa Valley Vineyards and Wine Country. […]
