My favorite shot from Lhotse’s second birthday party. Read More

Bailey and Oscar!

Bailey and Oscar tied the knot this weekend at a lovely ceremony. Luckily, they hired a professional photographer, which left me free to concentrate on the fun and the pretty girls! See the rest of the pictures here, or if you would like an easy way to download them to your computer or have photographic Read More

Carnaval 2009

We almost didn’t go this year. We thought that the temperatures in the low-50’s with heavy overcast skies might mean fewer scantily-clad revelers. Luckily, we were wrong. As always, I had a hard time choosing my favorites to display above. There are so many more. Please take a look at all of the images by Read More

Happy Easter!

thedude and Kelly celebrated the day with a non-traditional Easter brunch at the Claremont Hotel. We raised a toast to the U.S. Navy for rescuing Captain Phillips unharmed. This was also a chance to experiment with my new Canon G10, which so far is wonderful to shoot with, and produces amazing images for a camera Read More

Carmel Weekend

One of the best things about the Bay Area is that you can drive two hours and see sights like these and end up in Carmel-By-The-Sea. And if you’re like us, you’ll take the wrong turn at least once and discover a cemetery bursting with colorful flowers, lush, green fields, happy cows and sea lions Read More

Xenophon Gala 2009

As you know, thedude and Kelly volunteer some of their time in support of an amazing organization called Xenophon Therapeutic Riding. Last night we attended their annual fundraiser. The Xenophon Gala is always fun, and this year’s event was no exception, as you can clearly see from the photos. Please visit the Xenophon web site Read More

Burmese Santa Claus

The very last thing we thought we’d be bringing home from Burma is Christmas cards! We bought these from one of the many children who descended on us at every tourist stop. Anyway, I’m glad we bought them – they are so unusual. 🙂 Read More

Angels Over Alcatraz

This is always such a difficult event to shoot. The F-18’s are moving at speeds up to 650 miles per hour, and perform their most breathtaking maneuvers more than a mile away. I have to use my longest lens with the camera set to ISO 1000 so that I can use a shutter speed of Read More

But, I’m the MAN!

I thought I’d share the thoughtful birthday card I received from my ever-lovin’ wife this year. I think it’s hilarious. Kelly always finds the best cards. Her secret? The card racks at the car wash. Who knew? Read More

Magic Camera + ImageMagick

We’ve been spending a lot of time with our neighbors Jack Tres and Olive lately. That’s a good thing. I shot this picture at Flora on Thursday night. The light was provided by a single candle on the table in front of Tres. I used my old manual-focus f1.4 Nikkor wide open, at 1/15th of Read More

System Administrator Appreciation Day

Today is an important day in the life of thedude – System Administrator Appreciation Day. Read More

Happy Birthday America

With love and a prayer for world peace from a beautiful girl named Grace. Read More

Happy Birthday Ben!

All of us – including Orion – love you very much! Read More

Easter Food Fest

Oh my. I guess I should feel guilty about yesterday’s food orgy, but I don’t. I’m too busy drooling over the pictures. Here’s a taste of the menu at MoNO. After we finished photographing (and eating!) the food, we continued the feast at Chris and Ben’s with champagne and succulent leg of lamb. I can’t Read More

Holiday Season in Full-Swing

It’s that time of year. Seems like there are parties every night. Trust me – I’m not complaining. Although it does seem like I’m spending a lot of time taking pictures and creating photo albums like this one from our friend Lelah’s party last night. I was supposed to be photographing her and her baby Read More
