Chillin’ on the CO River, the El Dorado Ghost Town, and the Valley of Fire

We recently took a short trip out west (at the end of 2018). One of these days I’ll post a photo/video album from the trip.

Recent Trip to the Bay Area

Around theGolden Gate Bridge I just spent a couple of weeks in San Francisco, one of my favorite cities in the US. Naturally I shot a lot of photos around the Golden Gate and thought I would share some of them on my blog. Every day began with some serious fog, which of course I absolutely love!

My SmugMug Labor Continues

I’ve been working ferociously uploading photos to SmugMug. In fact, at this point, I’ve uploaded over 13,000 photos–literally. The Re-Org I’m not sure I’m even halfway!

Okay, Okay! I Was Wrong! Yes, Again…

This past weekend I did another one of my treks1 up Mount Tamalpais. I love being up there, especially when the fog and clouds are doing their etherial dances. Yes, you can expect another time lapse soon!

The Current State of iPhonography

Some of you endured my anguished decision-making process over whether or not to buy the new, absurdly over-priced, iPhone X. Frankly I don’t give a hoot about the communications aspects of a smartphone. I care about the photographs and video the phone’s camera can create. And when I look back at how drastically far smartphone camera technology has come, I’m… Continue reading
