Red Rock Canyon State Park

This image reminds me of a photograph by Ansel Adams, “Early Morning, Merced River, Autumn”. Both scenes are visible from the road, and just like Ansel with his image, I’ve driven by this location hundreds of times throughout my life. I’ve always wanted to photograph it, but the light was never quite right. However, on this winter day in November of 2013, the light caught my eye, and I couldn’t resist.

This was photographed with a Toyo 4×5 view camera on Kodak TMAX-400.

San Simeon, California

I photographed a similar scene earlier this year with a digital camera, but always wanted to go back and shoot it with film. Last month I had my opportunity.

Culver City, California

Two years ago today, we lost our beloved dog, Wilma. She was the other half to Fred, who died many years ago. And yes, I named my pets after The Flinstones! Anyway, Wilma was the sweetest and happiest dog I’ve ever had, and will always be missed.
.
This portrait was photographed with a Speed Graphic and a Kodak Aero Ektar 178mm lens.

Mt. Whitney

Throwback Thursday…
.
This is one of my older photographs from when I was just beginning to get serious about photography. While on a backpacking trip in 1998, I photographed this scene from the summit of Mt. Whitney, the highest peak in the contiguous United States. Oh how I remember those days!
.
This was shot with the first camera I ever bought, a Minolta X-370, which I purchased in 1988 and still own. In fact, I recently dusted off the camera and shot a couple rolls with it. However, I had to first open up the camera and replace a capacitor to get the shutter working again, which is a common problem with these cameras.

Volcanic Tablelands

Near Bishop, CA and up in the Volcanic Tablelands, there are a handful of captivating petroglyphs. This particular carving is called 13 Moons and was probably used as an astronomical calendar. This image was shot with a Fuji GX-617.
