Description:  Alcatraz is another one of those landmarks that constantly amazes me.  The amazement stems from not only the site of this old prison, sitting alone on an island 1.5 miles off the coast of San Francisco, but also, the fact that people flock to see this prison day-in and day-out.  The view of the […]

Ride With Me

Description:  I recently read that the Canon 18.0-200.0 mm lens, when shooting at 200mm, works very well as a macro lens.  So, I put it to the test here.  I found it doesn’t exactly do “macro” exactly, but does allow you to get up close and personal with your subject while providing an awesome depth […]

Dirty Love

Description:  It is amazing the things you see while walking around with your camera.  I can’t say I would not have seen this fire hydrant had I not had my camera with me, but I’m certain I would not have cared as much about the “I Love You” graffiti on it. If you are photo enthusiast […]

Your Majesty

Description:  I took a stroll with my camera during lunch yesterday, as I try to do as often as possible.  When I came to the Transamerica Pyramid, I stopped and stared for awhile.  It’s amazing how many times you can walk by a building and still be in awe when seeing it. Before capturing the […]

Photo Shoot with Institute on Aging

I recently had the opportunity to work with the Institute on Aging (IOA) capturing a few images they needed for an upcoming newsletter they are distributing.  I had actually approached IOA over a year ago about doing photography for them.  I had an interest in working with seniors and a possible interest in doing senior […]

Photographers All Over Google Buzz

Photo Credit: Naixn So, are you using Google Buzz yet?  Are you looking to get your fix of images and interact with some photographers rather than get the typical tech mumbo jumbo? After Thomas Hawk announced that he would start sharing his favorite photographers on Buzz, I wondered how many photographers were already on AND active […]

Feelin Groovy

Description:  “Hello lamp-post, whatcha knowin?  I’ve come to watch your flowers growin’.  Ain’tcha got no rhymes for me?  Doot-in’ doo-doo…” This photo was taken a few years ago shortly after I decided to pick photography backup more aggressively.  I remember waiting in this exact spot for a good 30 – 40 minutes for 1) the […]

Since Deon confessed he was trying to quit […]

Brady – BW$P

Meet Brady. As I headed from work to the Metreon to catch AVATAR, Brady was sitting on the sidewalk along 4th Ave. kindly asking for change.  I approached him and explained my BW$P project.  Brady agreed without hesitation and not once asked for more.  I asked him what his name was and how he was […]

Free I Roam

Description:  After fiddling with the post processing of Bent for a little bit, I settled on this alternate crop and processing.  Personally, I think I like this outtake more than the original black and white outtake, but, at this time, the BW$P project is specifically for black and white portraits.
