Here’s another Photos memory Apple’s AI created from some of my iPhone photos and video. It just picks these and puts this all together and then shares it with me on my phone. I still find it amazing!
This video features scenes of the ocean here around Meyers Creek1 along the southern Oregon coast.
For the growing collection of… Continue reading
I love weather! We just had a storm system, which the weather forecasts referred to as an “atmospheric river,” blow in from the ocean over the past two days. We got 2.71″ of rain over the two day period – enough to actually lower the risk of fire from the dry summer and exceed our monthly rainfall average.
Most of… Continue reading
I’ve really grown to love the short movie memories Photos artificial intelligence creates from the tens of thousands of photos I’ve shot on my iPhones through the years. Their AI algorithms process through all of the photos, identify what the photo is, pick photos on a theme, and assembles them automatically. The algorithms do a surprisingly good job of picking… Continue reading
The sun rises from the east, right? The Pacific Ocean is off to the west.
Now I’ve lived through almost 23,000 sunrises and have never seen the rising sun impact the color of the ocean surf (or the Gulf of Mexico surf for that matter). I’ve seen it impact the color of the water at sunset but never at sunrise–until… Continue reading
We chose to retire to this area of the country (the Pacific Northwest) for several reasons. Among them are:
The natural beauty of the area is stunning!We love living on the Pacific Coast because we love cooler weather: mist, fog, the marine layer, storms coming in off of the ocean1 .We felt like we were stepping back in time every… Continue reading
The view from our hotel room on the ocean
A few months back we were staying at a hotel directly on the Pacific Ocean. We were crazy close to the water. A good ball player could have easily thrown a ball from our balcony into the sea. Yes, we were that close. The sound of the ocean surf was, as… Continue reading
Still, I have so much to catch you up on with our travels, adventures and such. Here are some iPhone shots from the last several months. This is just a 30,000 foot overview.

The two photos below happened completely without any effort on my part. I picked up the tea glass, and the napkin smiled at me.… Continue reading
When we moved to Sausalito, California, I came to realize my intense love affair with mid-century classic architecture. I had always had it, but it was somehow hidden from my conscious awareness. We bought a mid-century classic, originally built in the 1950’s, that had been taken down to the studs and a significant amount of living space was added in… Continue reading
hat’s the best thing to do when you’re totally stressed out? Exactly! Go shoot something. And that’s exactly what I did!
The fog was crazy; so, I grabbed my new Canon 5D Mark IV and headed for the hills—literally. I’m still very much learning the nature of this camera.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m in shock over it’s low light… Continue reading
We spent this weekend up at Bodega Bay. I’ve always thought Bodega Bay was a nice place, but on this trip we found Bodega Head. It’s gorgeous! A mini headlands that is every bit as dramatic! Now, as a result, I’m way into Bodega Bay: headlands with gorgeous hiking trails, whale watching, a lovely calm bay, a thriving fishing industry… Continue reading
