No matter how many times I see this same view of Sutro Tower, I am amazed at how different it looks to me each time.
I had lunch with my friend Mark K. today. These were the utensils I used.
It is really hard to be funny with photographs. A few people can do it quite well, my friend Kurt Hegre is quite good at it, so you should stop reading this and go look at his site right now, I can wait…… I am hoping Kurt is able to visit me this month so […]
Every now and then I come across something I have never seen before when photographing an event. I really like when people are able to take an regular event and add something that makes it memorable.
