I wait my turn while a young photographer takes his picture of the second most famous bridge (after the Golden Gate Bridge) in the state just after sunrise. There were a surprising number of tourists and photographers there and at first I was annoyed because I wanted a shot of the bridge with no one there, but when he kneeled down to get his shot I thought this made a very cool photo. Sometimes the best plan is no plan at all. So after he moved on, I took the shot below, turns out I like the top one better.
After trying to get the bridge and the ocean in the shot at the same time, I realized that wasn't going to happen, so I scampered across Highway 1 and walked down a dirt access road and kept looking back until I was able to frame up this shot.
While waiting to cross back over the highway to my car, this motorcycle came into view and I thought it would be nice to get a shot of it going across the bridge with the winding Highway 1 off in the distance. Someone told me it reminded …
Here is the Tomb of the unknown surfer. It's on West side drive in Santa Cruz, California. Well, of course it is. This monument in close to the Mark Abbott Memorial Lighthouse and surfing museum.

A Portrait of my friend and client Dr. Sanford Severin and founder of the East Bay Eye Center in San Ramon. I met Dr. Sandy due to an eye issue I was having. It was a serious thing and at one point my vision in my right eye was at risk. To make a long story short, everything turned out fine for me and the good doctor and I have been friends ever since. I've worked on his book preparing a digital copy to put on his website which I built and you can find at trienergetics.net to review. Look back later, we are preparing some videos to go on Dr. Severin's blog as well.
This portrait was shot in his office with my old Canon D40 with one light. Used Lightroom for the basics and OnOne software for touch-ups and effects.
