This went completely under the radar as of late. Federal pressure has the California State Parks and Recreation Commission re-evaluating the wilderness status give to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. To virtually quote Diana Lindsay, the President of the Anza-Borrego Foundation and Institute, this would be the first time in American history that either state or federal wilderness has been de-designated in order to all
Icer Air 2006 was incredibly fun to see and photograph this year. I posted a couple photo highlights from the event in my earlier blog post, Icer Air 2006 Highlights, on November 6th. In addition to that I also released my first podcast episode EXIF and Beyond highlighting the experience of photographing Icer Air 2006. But what I’ve yet to post is a link to my Flickr photo set of the event. So here it is my Fli
For those subscribing to the CalPhoto mail group here are a few recent photos (see the end of this post) of the Mount Whitney Portal Waterfall taken this past Friday, November 18, 2006 (edited – fixed the date).

As I like to say… speak to the fore-thought, after-thought and everything in between of a photograph. Click here
If you’ve been tracking my Photo A Day project you’ve probably noticed I haven’t updated anything since since July, just before my trip to the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. So whats the deal? I am still actively participating in this project. I have a large backlog of images to post. I will start adding more images next week. Between starting a new job, enduring a kitchen remodel and now reorgani
Day 13, my last day in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge made a huge impression on me. Up until this time my focus was squarely on capturing the pristine beauty of the environment and wildlife. On this day I had the opportunity to see the impact of man on this unique environment. With in the photo gallery of this days highlights are images designated with the labels “Landscape Comparison” or “Hand
I recently upgraded my ipod and started downloading videocasts along with a few select podcasts. Recently I caught a videocast from AtomFilms of a movie made from one girls self portrait photos taken every day between 2001 and 2004. If you haven’t seen this its a must see. “Me” on AtomFilms
