July 26, 2015 I enjoyed watching the employees doing their work. The food was also good. I went for the sausage.
July 26 2015 Walking around the fairgrounds, I saw plenty of things worth photographing. I only regret not going in to see Hercules the Giant Horse. Maybe next year?
July 30 2015 I don’t know what these things are called, but lots of people photograph them and never get tired of liking them. I was testing out my new Holga to see how it worked. One of the lows of photography for me is that people seem to want to see the same thing […]
May 11, 2015 Some of my best photos are just found. I was getting ready to walk around Lake Mission Viejo when I spotted this scene.
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 […]
April 18, 2015. Cezanne had his Mont Sainte-Victoire. I have The Saddleback which I have captured from various angles. Redscale is a special film made by Lomography.

Date: April 26, 2015 I took this for World Pinhole Day, one of several I shot in San Juan Capistrano. Mission walls bored me quickly, so I sought out the tracks by the station and waited for one of the many late afternoon trains to pass. I stood about five feet back, but inside the […]

I was into cemeteries during the mid-nineties. San Francisco’s City of the Dead, Colma, California, was only a half an hour’s drive from me, so I made many journey’s to capture its monuments.
