A backlit leaf from my trip to Descanso Gardens.

Out for a stroll

Went out for a walk with the family this evening and brought the camera along. Ya know, 'cause I do that. Found a little summer time bloomage and thought I'd make some pictures.

California dreamin'

This is the image I always had in my mind of California before I moved out here. Having lived here almost 13 years now I see that there is so much more than just beaches and beautiful sunsets. Although the beaches and sunsets, they ain't bad.

I was looking back through my images from Yosemite and thought some of them would look great in black and white. Here's three of my favorites.

We took the kids to Descanso Gardens today to let them stretch their legs a bit now that the weather's cooling down. I saw this little scene in the Japanese garden and I was struck by it's simple setting. A little post processing brought out the image I had in my head.

No surprise

I can't post pictures of my boys without posting one of my girl. Here she is in all of her "gonna be asking me for the car keys next week" cuteness.

Growing up so fast. Trying to enjoy him as much as I can.

Not ideal

I was out running some errands two nights ago when I saw the makings of an awesome sunset. The good news was I had my trusty G9 with me. The bad news was, this parking lot was the best place I could find to see it. When you're handed lemons...

The Matriarch

We've recently added a couple of kittens to our family, bringing the grand feline total to five. Hey, I'm a sensitive guy. There remains only one lady among them however. This is our beautiful Sphynx, Buffy. Hairless, wrinkled and often cold, but never undignified, she is the queen of our feline family. Long live the wrinkles.

Learning is good

Well, the best thing I learned about taking pictures of fireworks is, I have a lot to learn. I can't wait for the next chance I get to try it again.

With all the recent fires in northern California, I thought I'd give props to the firefighters. These folks do a tremendously difficult job with no thought of self proclamation. Big thanks to them.
