Las Vegas

We took a mini-vacation to celebrate a couple of Virgo birthdays. I was too lazy to drag my heavy camera around much, but I did shoot this 12 image panorama of Kellster, Jeff and Wendy at the beautiful Parasol Down at the Wynn. Read More

Neomorphic Ten Year Reunion

Ten years ago I got a job at Neomorphic, Inc. โ€” a small start-up with a big idea and a fabulous group of individuals who, as a team, definitely got ‘er done. I am extremely lucky to have been part of this amazing team, led by Martin Reese, Cyrus Harmon and Gregg Helt. Thanks to Read More

Lunch With the Boys

Tom works in the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. Unfortunately, cameras are not allowed anywhere near the place, so instead of taking shots of him in his swanky power office, we settled for Dim Sum at Yank Sing. Read More

Happy Birthday, Tom

As always, a great time. Fabulous food and friends! I managed to get only a few in-focus shots in the pitch darkness at Tom and Julie’s. ๐Ÿ™‚ Read More

2009 Holiday Season in Full Swing

Thanks, Tom and Julie for a wonderful party last night. As always, the food and the company were exceptional! A few more images can be viewed here. Read More


I love barter. In trade for some web work, I get days at this fabulous house. This works out great for everyone involved, but the biggest beneficiary is definitely me. Its on trips like this that I am reminded how great my friends are and that I have the most wonderful wife in the world. Read More

Can a Duck be Beautiful?

Grant makes a pretty good case with this shot – frozen at 1/4000th of second. Read More

Laughing Dogs

Once in a while a friend sends a photo that amazes me. Dave was practicing with his new camera, and managed to capture this cool image of googly-eyed puppies going crazy in the Wisconsin snow. Dave, I’d say this picture proves that some pet-owners do look just like their pets! ๐Ÿ™‚ Read More

Mark Lands in the Bay Area

Welcome! You certainly picked a gorgeous day to fly in to Oakland. Read More

Highly Motivated People

My Achiever wife and a couple neighbors got up very early this morning to participate in the KFOG Bridge-to-Bridge Run (OK – walk). I don’t know how they do it. I wish I had a fraction of that energy! While Jack and I were just too busy to squeeze in a 7K walk, we did Read More

25 Years Ago…

thedude and Steve out on a shoot on a clear day in October, 1983. I don’t remember where we got the 4 x 5 camera, but I know Steve got some great results with it. Got more scans, Steve? Read More

San Francisco, 1988

My old pal Steve is scanning his old slides and negatives, and he sent me this gem, shot somewhere in the late eighties – Steve thinks it was 1988 or 1989. He shot this with Kodak’s nearly grain-free Ektar 25 negative film loaded in his Pentax ME Super from San Franciso’s Corona Heights Park. (Google Read More

Troels and Jesper Do Germany

My circle of old friends is getting wider. Yesterday I received a long e-mail from Troels Nรธrlem – another old pal from Greenland. What a thrill it is to hear from Troels – the official Thule Air Base Photographer! Sounds like he’s is doing well with his wife and two kids in what he refers Read More

Thule Barracks Fire

There have been more than a few occasions in my life when I felt that I was witnessing something that few people will ever see. You could say that everything that each of us experiences is by definition, a once-in-a-lifetime event. The thing is that in this case, I was smart lucky enough to have Read More

Now, That’s C-C-C-CRAZY

Not all of my Danish friends in Greenland were this crazy – but Erik and Randi got this idea… When you live in a place where the average temperature in February and March is -30 degrees Centigrade, it’s only a matter of time before someone will ask to have their picture taken in an unheated Read More

Reconnecting – Again

Many of you know of my never-ending scanning project. Well, the scope of the task expanded this afternoon. Through the miracle of the Internets, my old friend Erik Larsen found a photo I shot of a cabin he built near Thule Greenland. You can view this image both on the Panaramio web site and on Read More
