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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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?
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
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.
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.
