What a Relief

Such a Relief

While I'm waiting for Tom to come pick me up later this morning for a long drive and a photo shoot, might as well throw a Shadow Shot Sunday post up here. All the cool kids are doing it!

Short Back and Sides

"I just want to take a picture of the chair." In close quarters, a 24mm lens can capture so much more...

The Bible Guarantees It!

Anxiously Awaiting May 22nd

I've been seeing these all over SF lately. I want to contact the people who put them up to ask if I can take over their bank accounts on May 22nd.

I've been gunning for this guy for years. Could be closer but I'll take it.

One Clown's Day in the Sun

One Clown's Day in the Sun

For all the shooting I did in the past week and a half, I've been pretty lax about posting here. Sorry! Here's a shot from the St. Stupid's Day parade on April 1st.

Double-crested Cormorants

These bad boys can catch some fish. And, yes, it's still snowing here. Better large.

More from WonderCon


I called this guy a repairman in the title of this shot, but I believe this is actually supposed to be a Ghostbuster costume. In any event, I liked the pose and the light and the busy-ness of his outfit.

I never ran into Tom there, unfortunately, but I sure took a lot of pictures.

Common Mallards. Another typical scene is a bonded pair under chase from a second male.

Before Our Bubble Burst

Before Our Bubble Burst

I have taken waaaaaaay too many pictures in too many venues over the past 48 hours -- cashing in the rain check from the past couple months, I suppose -- and it's going to take me a fair amount of time to get through all of them. But in the meantime, here's one that struck me right off the top.

Better bigger.
