If you slept in or do not live on the west coast of the US, you missed the super blue moon eclipse. Here is what you would have seen.
Well, that time of year has come again. It’s the time when Peter insists on engaging in some sadomasochistic form of torture by insisting I cull through 1000+ photographs and pick my favorites. Its akin to asking someone to pick their favorite child. At least this year he gave me 15, instead of the usual 10. Continue reading
Continuing on from Eastern Sierra posts. So there I was at Convict Lake in the early morning hours, with freezing thumbs and freezing toes, bored out of my mind after taking 500+ images of the iconic shot. Trying to figure out how to keep myself entertained, and distracted from the ache in my fingers and toes, and then I thought about one of the assignments in Henry Carrol’s photo journal.

Mary I spent a very long weekend in San Diego to beat the heat. We always like going to the zoo there, especially to see the Pandas. In this edition of He saw…She saw, we visited our favorite animals. Here is what you might see. Continue reading
Mary and I spent the long July 4th weekend in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park. We were looking for bears and flowers in Sequoia and we made our first trip through Kings Canyon to see the waterfalls. Here is what you might see. Continue reading
Mary and I went on a guided tour of graffiti/street art with Athen and Arden last month. We both walked around with our Fuji XT-2s and zoom lenses. As is the usual outcome, we came back with different points of view on what we saw. Not sure one is better than the other, but show the range of perspectives between us. Here is what we saw.
