We took our first road trip in Nick—driving to Martinez for a bit of business1. We then decided to head up to Vacaville for lunch. We wanted to visit the Vacaville supercharger station. We really didn’t need to charge, but the whole idea was to try it out. This was our first supercharger experience. It’s free. It’s blazing fast. […]
I find it incomprehensible that 50 people commit suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge every year. Security forces and passersby talk down from the ledge about another 100 people who are intent on killing themselves. This means that ever 2 to 3 days, someone attempts suicide from the bridge, and about every third person succeeds.
I wanted to do something a little bit different with this time lapse of the fog blasting through the Golden Gate; so, I decided to make a time lapse composite: Room with a View.
I started with a photo of the living room…
From My Friend Sharon’s Timeline Leaving IHOP the other day, the manager called after us, ‘Be careful out there. Satan‘s at work!’ Fascinating twist on ‘Have a nice day.’” Her status update made me laugh. She’s not just a brilliant writer (professionally, actually), her beautiful karma invites interesting energy into her day-to-day life. And at […]
A week ago today I was hunkered down on the west peak of Mount Tamalpais. I felt as though I were on top of the world because the wind was blasting dense fog straight toward me, just barely over my head. I could reach up and almost touch this ceiling of fog. Coming from the Pacific […]
Here is the first of two panos I’ll post from my trip this week up to west peak Mount Tamalpais. The clouds had all but cleared, and you can see for miles! It was gorgeous! Be sure to also check out my other posts about this half day adventure up the mountain: West Peak, Mount […]
his past week I was shooting a time lapse in a particularly beautiful place when visitors from, of all places, Duluth, GA, (a suburb of Atlanta with which I am very familiar) walked up. I started talking with them. They had a high school boy, probably a senior, and were visiting the Bay Area, considering […]
From time to time I’ve noted, with some interest, the microclimates that abound here in the Bay Area. Yesterday I had an unusual experience, even by Bay Area standards, with how very different these micro climates can be! Just before dinner at my favorite pizza place—Mulberry Street Pizza, in San Rafael, we took a walk […]
We frequently walk along the breakwater in the evenings after dinner out. It’s our “us” time—a quiet time in a beautiful area, frequently all alone with the gentle surf, the clanking tack of the sailboats, the barking seals and the caws of the seagulls. Sometimes we get to hear the fog horns in the area […]
For some inexplicable reason, I’ve considered this Canon lens as a portrait lens. Not until yesterday did I decide to take it out and push it around in the wild. The lens is amazing—offering a huge range of possibilities. The images, though you will not be able to notice from these small JPEGs, are super […]
