We enjoyed a splendid day with crystal clear air at The Burt’s with our best pals.

It’s been close to a year since I made an entry. I guess I’ve grown wary of all forms of social media. But, now that Google+ will be going away, I will try to find the motivation to post more frequently on my new Google+ inspired design. I have been setting up the photo booth…
Before and After, and After…
(I do a lot of this sort of thing.)
Dinner in the City
Hm. Where should we go on Bastille Day?
Flexing with friends on a sunny 4th of July
The babes are obviously impressed.
Happy New Year
We busted out the champagne and the photo booth to celebrate the beginning of a new year and a very special birthday!
Kelly’s Perfect Birthday
What could be more relaxing than scooping poop with her best four-legged friends at the barn?
Happy New Year!
A little more fun with V-Ray and PhotoShop. Let’s toast to a wonderful 2017!
In case you’re wondering, I created thedude & Kelly action figures in Cinema4D and composited them into a photograph of our fake tree with PhotoShop.
Fabulous Fresno Fourth
Maybe it was the 100-degree heat, or maybe it was the super-cute Ava or the massive amounts of food and drink. All I know is that something made us all a little bit crazy this weekend. More holiday photos.
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.
I took a short hike today hoping to see fields of wildflowers, but I think I was about a week too early, so not a lot of flower shots today. Instead, I shot some man-made objects, including a freshly-installed Mag Spike and a bushel of unidentified metal thingies, evidently used in the construction of new…
May the coming year bring lots of love, good health and prosperity to you and yours! Cheers!
Photo Booth Goes Mobile
I took the booth on the road this weekend and set it up at one of the season’s best tasting Christmas events – Dinner at Sam and Mari’s. They were kind enough to let me tack a red backdrop to the wall, and well, the rest is Christmas history. Click for more whacky photos!
thedude passes another milestone, and could not feel better about it. Life is good. A few more photos here.
Relaxing on Labor Day
Janet and Ruby, Linda and Dinero, Trini and Go-Go, Kelly and Ozzie, Christine and Ranger begin a trail ride on this gorgeous holiday.
Happy Birthday to Me!
I cannot thank you guys enough for getting my fifty ninth sixtieth(!) year off to a such a great start. You guys RULE! Chris and Ben, thanks for being the best of all hosts and for opening the door to your beautiful home. Thanks to Peter and Jane for the excellent conversation, the laughs and…
After 10 years of Andrew’s urging me to go, I will finally embrace the dust.
Burtie Num Num
Thanks to ultimate hosts Chris and Ben Burt for the lovely soirée on this gorgeous day.
Fifty-Eight Big Ones
Can you believe it? thedude certainly can not! We celebrated the auspicious occasion with a marvelous party. A huge thanks to Chris and Ben for hosting the event, and to Red for the super-fine grillin’! Click here if you want to see a few more shots.
Happy 4th to My Old Hippie Friends – and Michael
Thanks to Tom and Cynthia for the amazing eats, and to Chris and Ben, who once again proved to be the hosts with the most.
Cambodian New Year
We attended a performance of Cambodian dance in Oakland today. The performances by children of all ages were so beautiful! If you’re looking for more pictures, click here!
St. Patrick’s Day
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.
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.
Proof that Christmas Shopping Doesn’t Have to Suck
Shopping is less stressful when done while tasting spirits at Hangar One.
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! 🙂
We took Kelly’s parents along this time. We couldn’t have hoped for better weather in mid-January. No Internet for almost four days. What a wonderful trip! Loved it!
We’re having a quiet Christmas this year. Yay! We just shared Christmas kisses with Jeri and Andrew. We are lucky to be able to count them among our very best friends.
