Encountered this beauty while shooting 35mm in a backyard garden.

Drainpipe to Paradise

Drainpipe to Paradise

Took this photo at Malibu Creek State Park. I found it very ironic – the dichotomy between the large graffiti-covered pipe, representing the sprawl of Los Angeles, and the serenity of the picturesque river that it lead to.

Yosemite

First time in Yosemite. Shot this just as the sun was setting and fog was rolling into the valley. Spectacular.

1975

I really like this photo. It reminds me of the seventies for some reason. It’s grainy, and takes me back to another time. In reality, the photo was taken December 2012. I shot it with 35mm film, 80mm lens, Minolta camera. I shot with slide film instead of negative film, which I then cross processed […]

Joshua Tree National Park at sunset. It’s a place that you could spend a lifetime exploring. Scattered boulders across a desert floor. It is as if they fell from the sky. Took this photo just as the sun disappeared behind the horizon.

This is late fall at Lake Arrowhead, California. The fall foliage was so spectacular it felt like it was glowing. The limbs of this tree in particular seemed to wander upwards forever. I grabbed this image as a young woman was taking in the same breathtaking view.

Daydreaming

Daydreaming

This woman had been waiting for her food at a restaurant for a solid thirty minutes, while at the same time trying to console an upset infant. She had been completely caught up in her child’s every need until she finally hit a breaking point and had to disconnect. I snapped this image in a […]

Summer

Desert Sunrise

We’d gone on a long winding drive, completely lost through the San Bernardino mountains. We’d just left cold weather, and some snow behind, and to our surprise stumbled across a desert and dry river bed. The way that the sunlight was hitting the landscape, we had to jump out of the car and explore.

Fun in the Sun

Fairground Memories

She was standing by herself, possibility waiting for someone, but all alone on a busy walkway. I couldn’t quite figure out what she was looking at, but she had a huge smile on her face, and seemed genuinely happy. Perhaps lost in thought, or just taking in the beauty of a cold crisp fall day.
