Technology can be so… frustrating.

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

Picture: When stuff doesn’t work right, this is what can happen… We all have these kinds of days. It’s part of the modern world, when technology suddenly stops working the way it should, and in a blink of an eye, the easy life we had come to expect suddenly isn’t so easy anymore. A friend […]

Save Me

Monday, September 14th, 2009

Picture: Students volunteer to run a Beach Clean Up Day sign up table at Oceano State Beach, Oceano, San Luis Obispo County coast, California One question I’m always asked is how I save all of my photos. As I continue to work through a multitude of projects, I spent part of the weekend “archiving” a […]

Chase This…

Wednesday, September 9th, 2009

Picture: Cal-Fire firefighters and forest fire. Courtesy: Michael Routh / Smoke Chaser Photography And speaking of (shameless plug) my Facebook page from my last post, I want to balance the universal karma equation by giving a very selfless, and hugely well-earned plug to Michael Routh, and his new endeavor, Smoke Chaser Photography. He also has […]

Taking the plunge

Tuesday, September 8th, 2009

Picture: Tourists atop a cliff on the South Rim of the Grand Canyon near Yavapai Point, Grand Canyon National Park, Arizona I hope everyone here in the U.S. had a wonderful Labor Day holiday weekend. I’m now, like my kids, fully back into the grind after our summer vacation. Those that know me are well […]

Do something nice for yourself

Thursday, August 6th, 2009

Picture: Sunset light on Cathedral Peak reflected in Upper Cathedral Lake, Yosemite National Park, California Last night I was up until nearly 3:00am working. One of the long overdue items on my “to do” list was to upgrade my wordpress installation of this weblog. Lately when I’ve been talking about long overdue, it’s been in […]

Ever get the feeling someone is trying to send you a message?

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Picture: Old wooden one-room church, Philo, Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California Sometimes the universe wants to tell you something; sometimes it needs to smack you upside the head to get your attention. Many people that read my blog will recall my accident from last February, and how lucky I was to escape the potential worse […]

Freedom and the SF Gay Pride Parade

Saturday, July 4th, 2009

Picture: Crowds gather ten people deep all along Market Street in downtown San Francisco to watch the annual Gay Pride Parade; San Francisco, California It seems odd to me that I’m posting this image today. It was only six days ago that I was celebrating a belated wedding anniversary with my wife in San Francisco. […]

A few major announcements

Thursday, May 28th, 2009

As a special preview of my upcoming newsletter, just for my blog readers. First, as of this last Memorial Day weekend, I’m hereby happy to declare myself (nearly) fully recovered from my accident last February. All the pain medicines have now been weaned out of my system, and I finally feel like myself again for […]

Touching History

Wednesday, May 20th, 2009

Picture: Touching fossilized dinosaur tracks, near Moab, Utah. Back when I was acting in college, one of my all-time favorite scenes was performing the closing act of Inherit the Wind, the dramatized tale of the famous Scope’s Monkey Trial that pit the Evolutionists against the Creationists. Yesterday it was announced in the news that Darwin’s […]

Now that’s good television

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

OK, not television per se, but some audio visual material well worth watching. Topping the charts this week is Attorney Nancy Wolff, who is the counsel for the Picture Archive Council of America. Nancy gives an excellent hour long presentation called, “Copyright Education” that is well worth taking the time to watch. I promise, it’s […]
