Edge of the World

May 1, 2015. I have been experimenting with a set of graduated filters. Here I used a blue one to bring out the sky more clearly.

My love is a red, red rose

Silvia Adobe

April 25, 2015. This small, historic structure is a few blocks from Mission San Juan Capistrano. It seems to be a favorite place for high school yearbook and wedding photos.

Redscale Sunset

April 18, 2015. This is cheating, of course, and about the only way I am going to get a sunset out of a black and white film. I used an eight-point star filter and redscale film to generate the effect. I hate this cell phone tower. Getting around it requires some acrobatics. Here, I just […]

Getting Ready for the Big Trip

We’re going to Senegal in October with stops in London and Paris on the way over. It will be an eight to nine hour time difference from my home in Orange County. I’m in the process of choosing a set of cameras to bring with me. My Nikon D70 with a 32 GB SD card […]
