My first Future Friday talk by an enthusiastic, animated Dr. Alexi Fillipenko was entertaining and informative. It left me with a sense of wonder – as in, I wonder how much of what we think we know about the universe is actually accurate.
I didn’t have to look to hard to find some green on this gorgeous St. Patrick’s Day at Tilden Park in Oakland, California! By he way, I don’t normally shoot directly into the sun. When I took this, I was channeling my talented friend Erin, a terrific photographer who has totally mastered the technique.
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
I brought the new camera to try and capture the sheer size of Andrew’s latest masterpiece. I think it’s amazing. No matter how many times he explains it to me, I’ll never understand how he does this sort of work. I would not have a clue where to start… Click here for a (5 MB)
We just returned from a super-relaxing trip to Point Arena with most excellent hosts Tom and Julie. In an absolute stroke of genius, we decided not to drive to Mendocino like we always do. Instead, we stayed around the beautiful ocean side home and limited our activities mostly to eating and drinking, interrupted only by
Our trip to Death Valley was not strictly for pleasure — we had an ulterior motive. Chris has just made a remarkable meteorological discovery that will be ‘officially’ announced by the United Nations WMO (World Meteorological Organization) later this spring. It’s all very exciting, and helps to explain the film crew trailing him in the
I feel bad some times about ordering my subjects to pose for my shots, but after I see the results, I’m usually pretty sure they will want to see them too. What fun. Thanks to all of you! Thank you Kelly, for putting the whole thing together. You are da bomb! 🙂
OK – I’ve been feeling kinda bad. My pal Jim visited for a week, and, despite great conversation, great weather and meals at places like Haven, Sea Salt and of course Chop Bar, I took a grand total of one photograph. With a cheap-ass point-and-click. I guess it could have been worse – I could
There isn’t a lot I can say here that hasn’t been said far more eloquently by Bruce’s friends and family, so I’ll let the images do most of the talking. Kelly and I laughed out loud while looking at these. We hope you will too. You are a big part of the fondest memory of
It really was most excellent to finally see you again, Amy. You obviously haven’t lost your terrific smile or your love of life. I’m delighted to hear that you’re doing so well with your business – Pieh Tool Company. I can’t say I know of another woman with her own line of custom tools and
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.
You never know what you’ll find at Andrew and Jeri’s. On the menu this Shrove Tuesday were tasty crepes and creepy bugs. The crepes were delicious of course, but the bug turned out to be the coolest thing when we saw what it looks like under under black light. Evidently, all scorpions do this. Who
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.
