Those […]

SACRAMENTO, CA, U.S.A. – SEPT. 13, 2021 Press pass, pretty please… Ever wonder what it takes to get into the press pack for a spot when President Biden Visits Sac?

Happy 4th!

Here are some images from this year\’s 4th of July Parade and then one extra composite fireworks image.  I started up at the beginning of the event near Cherry Street, finding a little pocket of shade near some Auburn police volunteers.  The Auburn police honor guard, in full black wool uniforms (!) also came to share the shade, along with a few bystanders. Nearby, Good Day Sacramento interviewed Chamber of Commerce President Nalesh Chandra as part of their progressive live […]

New Ag Gallery is up!

I’ve added a new gallery to my website. It’s culled from various agriculture images I have taken over the past few years in Yolo County. There’s more information on the gallery page, but Yolo Arts does a great job of helping farmers and artists connect in the area’s rich central valley growing communities. I’m always surprised by what I find, and these outings help me ponder the various resource, farmworker, pollination and other issues that are so critical to the […]

“Lake Arrowhead Star Trails”

“Lake Arrowhead Star Trails” is the first star trails image I have done in several years. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay at a friend’s house this past week in the San Bernadino mountains. After a surprise snowstorm, the Lake Arrowhead sky cleared and I triend my first set of star trails over their tudor-styled guesthouse. I ended up prefering the snowstorm photo. Take two… So, I decided to try something else and headed down to the […]
