A very neat development to report this week. I’ve had some of my Golden Gate Bridge photos spotlighted in the San Francisco Chronicle, the largest newspaper here in the San Francisco bay area. They have a “Flickr Pickr” page as part of their “96 Hours” section where they highlight local photographers on Flickr. The write up is quite flattering… Thanks John! See the full write up on
This has been a long time favorite of mine and recently has become a favorite of quite a few others on Flickr via the Explore page. The story behind this image is quite painful. After hiking through 30 miles of the back country of Crater Lake National Park along the Pacific Coast Trail I decided to venture into the crater. A little too sore and with a few too many blisters on my feet I walked down the Cleetwood Cove
I took this photo of the San Francisco skyline through the Golden Gate Bridge about two weeks ago on a semi-warm afternoon that turned to chilly evening. I was pretty please with how it came out.

This year I made my yearly pilgrimage to Macworld to take photos of the latest offering by Apple, Inc. (formerly Apple Computers, Inc.). As part of their announcement the company has changed its name as it expands into product offerings well beyond computers. The centerpiece of todays Keynote speech by Steve Jobs was the demonstration of Apple’s iPhone. I was expecting something neat, but nothing as mind blowin
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
I woke up this morning to a pleasant surprise… my Full Moon Over San Francisco made the Flickr Explore page (the straight image can be seen below the screencapture image). I’m not sure how their “Interestingness” system works, but its fun to see the addition and receive additional comments.
