December 6, 2013. Sonoma County, California. This shot had been and also-ran from a shoot that has produced a couple of other pictures that I’ve posted here. It just seemed that it was too much like another one […]

July 10, 2010. San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California — and last night in my office. This is an impossibly small crop of a much larger frame — a starting point for an imaginary stroll on […]

It’s always better to do this. July 25, 2020 — San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California. Gertrude said, “There’s no there there.” Sometimes the less “there” there is, the more “there there” there is. There, I’ve said it. Gertrude was […]

July 13, 2018. San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California. The bluffs over San Gregorio Beach are a favorite spot for me. They provide a high enough vantage point for me to see far out to sea with an […]

July 10, 2010. San Gregorio Bluffs, San Mateo County, California. On my way from Silicon Valley to San Francisco, I decided on the spur of the moment to take the scenic route. Web Cam showed some coastal clouds and I was hoping to get a sun-dappled sea. All I had with me was trusty MiniCam™ — my Canon G5X II. (The best camera is the one you have with you, so have something decent with […]

Jan 18, 2012 — Sonoma County Coast, California An old favorite reimagined. If you look, you’ll see Point Reyes way off in the distance. The sky is creamy. The best camera is the one you have with you. The Canon S95 was one of the first pocket cameras to have a larger sensor, allow full adjustments including Manual, and to provide RAW files. The RAW files were only 8-bit, which didn’t allow much flexibility in […]

RAW processing in DxO PhotoLab 3.3; Editing in Adobe Photoshop.)

August 13, 2006, Big Sur Coast, California / June 27, 2017, Silicon Valley, California Gray day. The streak on horizon was the appeal. It was all there was. Shoot. Crap shoot, really. This was long before I was shooting RAW, so no direction home in editing. Gray on gray on gray. Blah. Nothing. Ain’t it hard when I discovered that it really wasn’t where it’s at… It sat in archives for almost nine years. One […]
