Fabulous Fresno Fourth

Maybe it was the 100-degree heat, or maybe it was the super-cute Ava or the massive amounts of food and drink. All I know is that something made us all a little bit crazy this weekend. More holiday photos. Read More

Happy Anniversary

We celebrated a pair of anniversaries last weekend at one of our favorite places – the spectacular restaurant at Post Ranch Inn. After a delicious lunch, I handed my camera to the waiter who took today’s featured shot. I might have framed it differently, but I love it. Read More

Xenophon Horse Show

As always, the 2015 Xenophon Horse Show was filled with smiles and beautiful children. This is always such a joyful event! It’s a privilege to volunteer my time to such an amazing organization.   Read More

Frank & Dot are Octogenarians!

We took a short trip to Cambria and Paso Robles to celebrate dual birthdays with the Hunter clan. On the way, we stopped at the spectacular Post Ranch Inn for a tasty lunch with a view. We both loved the little town of Cambria. Moonstone Beach is lined with cozy hotels, and the pace is Read More

Weekend of Love

We spent a perfect three-day weekend in Gualala with a few of our favorite people. We drove up the coast with no firm plans, loaded down with food and booze. We stayed in our pajamas the first day while we waited out a much-needed rain storm, but things got really nice on the second day. Read More

Kelly at Encuentro

While having dinner outside at our favorite vegetarian restaurant, we heard a rumor that they may be opening a new, larger restaurant a few blocks away. We hope so! A little cropping and a half-stop vignette with Lightroom, otherwise pretty much straight out of my Fuji X100s. Read More

Last Night

I like this shot of thedude and Kellster a lot. So I’m posting it. It’s my blog. So there. Read More

Another Day,
Another ‘Do…

…another pizza at Dopo. Read More

Alert the Media!

The paparazzi caught this glimpse of Kellster sporting a sassy new do tonight at Dopo. Read More

Celebrating Aunt Mary’s Life

I shot an event to honor the life of Kelly’s beloved Aunt Mary in Redding a couple weekends ago. Here are a few of my favorites from that day. I hadn’t used my Nikon D3 for a while, but decided that it along with the light, fast, super-sharp Nikkor 85mm f1.8 lens would be perfect Read More

Sundial Bridge, Redding

We’re a long way from the truly spectacular Milwaukee Art Museum, but not all that far from another beautiful Santiago Calatravo design. The Sundial Bridge is a gorgeous and unexpected treasure in Redding, California. Read More

Angry Bird

Kelly’s beloved Boo isn’t really angry. I think he’s just infatuated with the handsome photographer. Read More

Lucky Me

Kelly and I walked to one of our local wine tasting rooms this afternoon. We didn’t know it before we got there, but JC Cellars was having a 50% off sale, which is definitely not good for the ol’ pocketbook. I did get this wonderful shot of Kelly though. Does she look great, or what? Read More

Oops – It Must Be Sunday

I think I need to add a new “horsie” category to my blog! By the way, I used my el-cheapo Korean 85mm 1.4 lens on today’s shoot. I love that lens! Read More

Happy Anniversary

We’re 2-1/2 months late, but we finally got around to celebrating our anniversary with a day trip to wine country. What a beautiful day. Happy Anniversary, Kellster! Read More

Gualala 2012

We took Kelly’s parents along this time. We couldn’t have hoped for better weather in mid-January. No Internet for almost four days. What a wonderful trip! Loved it! Read More

Last Night at San Gregorio Beach

I’m pretty happy with this shot of my wife with her parents and best friends Jeff and Wendy. To make it, I used my new FourSquare lighting system, held high above my head while I clutched the D3 with the other hand and snapped this about 30 minutes after sunset. The colors in this one Read More

Favorite Birthday Card

Thanks Dawn, for the hilarious birthday card. Read More

Our New Favorite Shot of Bandit

We look forward to the summer when he’s shed all of his winter coat and the trails have dried up so we can get an even better shot of horse and rider, but we both like this one a lot! This image also marks the first time I used a new GPS device form BlueSLR. Read More

Warmest Day of the Year

Jim Rowe’s visit is coinciding with some spectacular Bay Area weather. The high temperature in Oakland was only in the upper 50’s, but in the warm sun it felt like 75. Perfect weather for oysters on the pier at the Lake Chalet. Later, we went up to Skyline Ranch to visit with Kelly and Bandit. Read More
