What’s Ahead?

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

Picture: Driving into Shafer Canyon, Island in the Sky District, Canyonlands National Park, Utah In my last two blog posts, I mentioned about my summer vacation through some of the west’s best National Parks, and how I ‘unplugged’ from the business of being a professional photographer on more than a month of family holiday travels.

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Picture: Snow covered pine trees along road to Echo Summit, near Lake Tahoe, California I got home this weekend from a sixteen day road & hibernation trip. What the heck does that mean? Well, in the middle of those sixteen days, I hibernated all alone in a motel in South Lake Tahoe while a major […]

On the Road Again

Wednesday, September 28th, 2011

Picture: Dirt road through the Buttermilk Region of the Eastern Sierra, near Bishop, California After having to cut my last trip short, I’m heading back out on the road.

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Picture: Car driving on suburban street in downtown Pleasant Hill, California. File this one under: Photography is not a crime, or “Are you by chance a little paranoid?” After all, it was the British rock group, The Kinks, who reminded us that paranoia is The Destroyer. Not long ago I stopped into a local camera […]

The Joys of Coming Home

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Picture: Rainbow over the “Meat & Potatoes Palace”, near Hat Creek, California (A play off Galen Rowell’s famous photo, Rainbow over the Potala Palace in Lhasa, Tibet.)

Must have more gas for my Hummer

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

Picture: “Drill Now” oil banner hanging from front porch of affluent home with a Hummer SUV parked in front, Corona Del Mar, Southern California On my recent trip to Southern California, I came across this scene while in the Newport Beach / Corona del Mar area. Frankly, sometimes I just don’t get the SOCAL mindset. […]

Picture: Pickup truck driving on a long straight rolling hills country road at sunrise, near Santa Ynez, Santa Barbara County, California Sometimes you just have a feeling about a photo as you’re taking the shot.

Picture: Rhododendron flowers bloom under trees along curve on Highway 101, Redwood National Park, Del Norte County, Northern California Reports are in that the wild Rhododendrons are in bloom again along the North Coast. It’s been several years since I’ve been up this way, but I know the area very well. I was lucky enough […]

The Price of your Passions

Monday, April 14th, 2008

Picture: A pair of Recreational Vehicle campers traveling along a desert highway, near Death Valley, California I love to drive. But it’s quite the new reality here in the U.S., with summer fast approaching and record gas prices already here- and still climbing; $3.89 at my local station today, $0.05 higher than last Saturday.
