September 6, 2018 — West Shore Lake Tahoe, California Same shot as in yesterday’s post. I saw this interpretation in my mind’s eye last night, but it was too late to work on it. I put considerable time into it today. New observation: The more minimal and subtle the picture, the more time goes into it. But I was really hummin’.

June 9, 2013 — San Francisco, California I’d given this up for lost. The RX-100’s chromatic aberration on the edges had ruined it. Then I looked at another approach. This is a crop from the center, much massaged. Lots of selective sharpening and minus Clarity combined with selective increase and decrease in Vibrance. No fancy filters. Ever. An exercise in soft, made while listening to Derek Hunter Wilson’s new album — an exercise in soft […]

August 16, 2020 — Sonoma County Coast, California A blindingly bright afternoon. Calm day — but each wavelet was its own mirror, each adding to the millions of tiny suns out on the water. ICM — Intentional Camera Motion — does wonderful things with time and space as they combine in the camera in myriad mystical modes. Then in the computer, more magic happens.

August 17, 2020 — Sonoma County Coast, California There was a guy in England, an RAF officer, he was. A cracking good pilot. He lived at the RAF Aerodrome, which he and all his mates called the ’Drome. He was an affable guy; extremely well thought of. Popular. He had an easy way about him. He also had a unique talent. He was completely ambidextrous. No matter what he did, he could do equally well […]

August 18, 2020 — Sonoma County Coast, California This time looking south. Camera was moved, intentionally. Again. A very different evening. There had been lightning a couple nights previous.

August 12, 2020 — Marin County Coast, California It’s easier to have one’s head in the clouds if the clouds are at or only slightly above sea level. The California coast is famous for sea-level clouds in the summer. We locals call it fog. (Nikon D850, Nikon 24-120mm f/4G VR.
