More From the Desert

Sunday, July 30th, 2017

Near Salvation Mountain is a fairly strange community known as Slab City. And in Slab City is a fairly strange art community known as East Jesus. So, after visiting Salvation Mountain we headed on over to East Jesus and I couldn’t resist taking a few photos there.

Photos from the Left Coast

Friday, July 28th, 2017

Well, not exactly at the coast. I’ve been traveling. That’s why I haven’t been posting here. I went to the desert in Southern California. Thought I’d share a few of my photos from there. That’s a pretty well known, often photographed abandoned gas station at the Salton Sea above. I couldn’t resist doing my own […]

Home Again

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

I’m back home.  No incidents with the truck or deer or anything like that on the drive back from LA.  In fact, I’m so pleased with the overall performance of my 2002 truck, despite all the issues caused by hitting the deer, that I’ve decided to see if I can keep driving it for at […]

A Famous Photographer

Friday, October 31st, 2008

And now something a little different. I recently received a copy of the Taschen book, Camera Work, The Complete Photographs, as a birthday gift from my wife. It’s a great book. Every photographer should have a copy in their library. This book will show you the starting point for photography as art. And it’s a […]

Because I’m here

Monday, October 6th, 2008

And I don’t know when I’ll next have internet access, here’s another photo from Death Valley. That’s Vima looking sensational in the ruins not far from Badwater…the lowest place in North America, if I remember correctly. Again, I’ll check in and post as I have the chance over the next week…but no telling in advance […]

Long Time Gone

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

Sorry for the extended absence from posting. It’s been a bit busy since I returned from Death Valley. Much of my time has been spent dealing with post-Ike storm recovery. Just today I was finally able to talk with the insurance claims adjuster who set an appointment to come to our home and review the […]

After Ike

Friday, September 26th, 2008

I’ve been pretty swamped since I got home. My redeye flight from LA was way overbooked…something like 20 seats overbooked. I volunteered to give up my seat and got a voucher and a hotel for the night. But it was midnight before I made it to the hotel and my new flight was at 6 […]

Rules Are Made To Be Broken

Friday, September 19th, 2008

I’m in Los Angeles after 4 wonderful days of shooting in and around Death Valley. It was a great trip, largely because of the fantastic models who went out in the desert with me. NevaehLleh and Vima just did a fantastic job day after day in the heat and sun, on the rocks and in […]
