Street

Street Photography is one of the most enjoyable for me because of the spontaneity. Here I’ve used the term broadly to include scenes that actually took place and those that were staged. When taking photographs in the street I’m prone to look for the narrative. I want something that speaks of the subject being photographed; whether a human story or a cultural one or…

Waiting Arrival

These mail boxes are located on Sir Francis Drake Hwy. between Inverness Park and Inverness, CA.

Cyclists Reenergizing

These two cyclists seemed to be reenergizing in the Commons at Point Reyes Station, CA.

Two Guys

Here is another picture of the two guys I met outside of the Old Western Bar in Point Reyes Station. They were traveling around. One said he was from Hawaii and the other from Mill Valley, California. They seemed to be living from place to place. They both were friendly and readily agreed to have their pictures taken. Here they seemed to be relaxing…

Playing Around

I met these two outside of the Old Western Bar in Point Reyes Station. They were traveling around and seemed to be living from place to place. They both were friendly and readily agreed to have their pictures taken. They were joking around for the camera.

Sleeping

This photograph was taken in January 2009 in an open air market near Li Jiang, Yunnan, China.

Red Grey

This was taken in Glen Ellen, CA., a beautiful village in Northern California. The red of the crepe myrtle and the old fashion street lamp caught my eye.

Lit Joe’s

Nice friendly people who either get up early or who stay up all night. Lit Joe’s has been there since the 1954. Their sign on the roof rotates but not in a complete circle. It…

Bowling

I went to my brother-in-law’s in Sacramento to visit and to take photos of the North Sacramento area. This picture of the bowling alley is on Del Paso Boulevard. The area has a number of art deco buildings. Taken at about 7:00 in the morning, the light had a differs quality. The pigeons were a problem by sitting on the sign and flying at…

Red White Blue Yellow

Taken at the entrance to Kaiser Permanente Health Center in Pleasanton California. This sidewalk, street and curb combination caught my eye this morning. I want back later to take about 10 photos from different angles. This is a real advantage when not shooting street photography

Bubbles

I’m digging into my archives. This was taken in front of the Fine Arts Museum in Taichung, Taiwan. Lots of people gather here to enjoy talking and playing. It has alway been a great place for taking photos of people.
