December 26, 2017. The Sea Ranch, Sonoma Coast, California. It had been stormy. We spent Christmas hunkered down. The coast had been battered with wind and rain. For the longest time, it seemed, we weren’t sure if it would go on and on or if the rage would finally be over. We drifted off into an uneasy sleep with nothing resolved. The morning was still unsettled. But then suddenly it was over. The midday brought […]

October 13, 2020 — San Francisco Bay, California The smoke had finally cleared and what was obscuring the view was not smoke but fog, which is the way it’s supposed to be.

Inspiration / Performance Photography / Photo Log / Photography / Positivity

July 14, 2011, San Jose Blues Festival, San Jose, California. Here’s a secret: I really enjoy doing performance photography. But it’s not a concentration: I’ve only posted performance photography twice before. The first was in my fourth blog post ever, on November 30, 2018. Today, for reasons that might already be obvious, I’ve decided to post another. This is Ruthie Foster. She grew up with music in her genes and in her early teens she […]

April 7, 1949 — The Majestic Theatre, New York Lt. Cable: “It’s not born in you. It happens after you’re born. You’ve got to be taught to hate and fear You’ve got to be taught from year to year It’s got to be drummed in your dear little ear You’ve got to be carefully taught You’ve got to be taught to be afraid Of people whose eyes are oddly made And people whose skin is […]
