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

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

Tudal Winery

Tudal Winery hosted an event at their winery in St. Helena yesterday. We knew the event would feature excellent wines and food, but when we learned that there was no driving involved, we jumped at the chance! Read More

Grillin’ with the Gang

Chris and Ben prepared pork AND lamb for last weekend’s feast. I’m trying out settings on the Fuji X100s. Hope you like the new “HD” aspect ratio. These were shot with the Film Simulation mode set to “Pro Negative, High Contrast”. Now, I usually (always) shoot RAW, but it turns out that there are some Read More

Another Day,
Another ‘Do…

Alert the Media!

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

Christmas Crabs

The Hunter Clan wanted to try something new this holiday, so we decided to have a crab feast at the Franciscan. Our expectations were low due to the touristy location, but we were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and outstanding service. Read More

Crazy Beautiful Wine Country

Our dear friends Ann and Lynne provided the excuse for a trip to the Napa Valley. As it happens, the trip could not have been timed more perfectly. We arrived just in time to witness Mother Nature at her scenic best. Thanks to Lynne, we visited some of the most beautiful wineries we have ever Read More

Eat Real Oakland

Another of the many fabulous food events in Oakland. All images were shot with the fantastic SONY DSC-RX100, and converted from RAW with the powerful RAW Photo Processor using a Kodachrome 64 color profile for extra fun. 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

Best Meal in a Glass

This is what Oakland Magazine had to say about the “Baconized” Bloody Mary at Chop Bar. The corned-beef hash was pretty darn good too! Thanks to Grant and Sandy for providing the perfect excuse to over-indulge. 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

Point Arena, 2011

Thanks Tom and Julie, for including us in your trip fabulous food-filled trip up nort’. The whole weekend was fabulous. Steaks on the grill, shopping in Mendo… But that meal at Cafe Beaujolais was one of the most memorable ever. Awesome. Read More

Ben Loves Bacon

And I love his shirt! Read More

Our White Christmas

I was not looking forward to driving 5 hours to Shaver Lake to be held prisoner in a cabin in the snow, but that’s not how it turned out at all. The holiday I dread the most turned out to be more than tolerable this year. At times, it was actually fun. The food and Read More

No Fireworks Here

According to weather expert Chris, The San Francisco Bay Area was the coldest spot in the US this Fourth of July, with the possible exception of a few locations in Alaska. Along with temperatures in the 50’s came the famous fog, which obliterated any hope of seeing any fireworks. Oh well… We did get to Read More
