For some reason I find it interesting when people take photographs or make videos of their travels rather than experience then, but that is kind of hypocritical. That is exactly what I am doing. Of course, I am lucky enough to get paid to do it. But, why do people find the photos they take […]
I’m Lost in the Supermarket
Someone asked me the other day how to become a professional photographer. After wanting to give my smart-ass answer of “take a series or photographs and get someone to pay you for them, viola, you are a professional.” I thought better of giving that answer and came up with the real answer, practice.

Part of the new exhibits at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art incorporates an old teletype machine, constantly printing out the news feed. These things used to be all over the newsrooms where I worked, but I have not seen one is such a long time. I think it was a very cleaver was to […]

She is camera shy, or at least does not like having me stick strange black rectangular boxes in her face. That is ok, I don’t really like being photographed either. I probably should […]
I have stopped watching television “news” and my life has become a whole lot calmer. In order to better understand the world I have been taking long walks (some people call them hikes, but that sounds too organized or intentional). I just wander, take my time, look around, notice the world and all of its […]
