Legs on the Beach

Legs on the Beach

A man and his dog on the beach.  But wait, how many legs on the beach are there?  This is the type of situation I look for when shooing on the street.  One with some humor or irony. The Sonoma Coast, or any beach for that matter, is a great place to capture street...
Monster in The Woods

Monster in The Woods

Seeing faces in nature like rocks and trees is subjective.  If an image exists, not everyone sees the same thing or, for that matter, any image at all.  On the other hand, some faces simply present themselves like this Monster in the Woods.  Walking in Armstrong...
Monet’s Weeping Willow

Monet’s Weeping Willow

I love going to museums not only for the beautiful art but also for the juxtaposition created by visitors.  Monet’s Weeping Willow is an example of a perfect patron observing the perfect painting. The de Young museum in San Francisco featured nearly 50 Monet...
Cell Phone Vandalism

Cell Phone Vandalism

At what point does art become vandalism?  At what point does the cell phone in your hand become a bunch of atoms? These are the questions asked in cell phone vandalism. But is it art? The sign on J street in Sacramento bore these words for a few days before they were...

Women’s March Sacramento 2019

I’ve found that public demonstrations can be a good source for street photographers.  The Women’s March Sacramento 2019 did not disappoint. I too marched along the entire route, all the while looking for people who stood out in the crowd.  The woman...
Hiding in Plain Site Hollywood

Hiding in Plain Site Hollywood

This is an image, I had overlooked until recently.  It was one of the first I made while part of a street photography workshop.  Now, in hindsight, the person in the background stands out.  The result: Hiding in plain site Hollywood. This is an example of David...
Bathing Beauty Bologna Italy

Bathing Beauty Bologna Italy

Bathing Beauty Bologna Italy. A great place for street photographers. A very nice city and thanks to Rick Steves, very few American tourists.  Yes, ignore Rick Steves.  He does not recommend visiting Bologna, I say go there and not only for the Bathing Beauty.  While...
