Illumination Intersection

In a quiet little corner of a quiet little island...

I found myself here.
It was as if I'd driven to a rainbow's end and discovered its pot of gold.

Simple Pleasures

A camera, film,
A walk through Golden Gate Park

with two of my very favorite people.

One Rainy Gift

An early morning walk led me to find
an open book
soaked with rain.
I wonder who left it behind.
Were they absentminded, neglectful, or a knowing composer?
So simple, so beautiful, I thought.

Airstream Sneak-Peek

Hello, do you remember this and this? Well, Josh has been hard at work these past few months, transforming that beautiful old Airstream into a real work of art.

Today you'll find me in Berkeley, unveiling a sneak-peek of Josh's Airstream Project, in conjunction with Berkeley Open Studios. Stop by if you can!

I hope you're having a lovely weekend too...

I've been waiting to tell you about encuentro, a beautiful new wine bar and cafe in Oakland's Jack London District.

Eric, Lacey, and Linda, the dedicated Owners, asked me to create photographs for their website and menu. Such an honor!

In the spirit of a neighborhood wine bar, they've created a place for friends
"meet, gather, and encounter."

menu is "simple, flavorful, organic, and local"

and the wines are organic / sustainable from small, local, and old world vintners.

The space itself is light-filled and airy, which made my job wonderfully fun.

Thanks to the kind people at encuentro for believing that through my photography,
I could somehow communicate the beauty and sincere deliciousness of their creations.

Raise 'em high everyone!

Slate Gallery, Oakland

Hello, I thought I'd share some news....

I now have photographs available at Slate Gallery in Oakland! If you're in the area, please stop by and take a peek. You'll find matted prints, as well as a mini-exhibition of framed pieces.

The Gallery is located on Telegraph Ave. in North Oakland's charming Temescal district, not far from Bakesale Betty (fried chicken, so good...)

Slate is a sun-filled and friendly gallery, voted "Best New Art Gallery" in the East Bay. They've hosted some tasty exhibitions this year, including this one , and I'm honored to be there.

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your December is off to a healthy start.

Plaid Friday

Hello and welcome to Plaid Friday! I hope your Thanksgiving was warm and wonderful.

You probably know about "Black Friday" in which people visit big-box stores to kick-off their holiday shopping, and cash in on super sales. Well, you may also know that the Bay Area likes to do things a little differently. This year, two local galleries decided to organize "Plaid Friday," to encourage people to support the little guys (and girls) of the business world.

I'm excited to participate along with many Bay Area independent businesses and Artists, and am offering Free Shipping in my shop, now through Sunday, November 29. Just enter "Plaid Friday" in your Buyer's Message, and I'll refund your shipping costs via Paypal. If there is a photograph that you'd love to have, but do not see in my shop, just let me know.

Thanks everyone for your continued support. Plaid or Black, I hope you have a fantastic Friday...!

Happy Thanksgiving

Hi, and happy Thanksgiving!

Do you celebrate the "thanks" in Thanksgiving? I'll be honest, I usually forget. I think I'm pretty good about counting my blessings on most regular days, but on Thanksgiving my thoughts gravitate towards food, pie, and other earthly pleasures.

So, just in case I forget to mention it while we're sitting around the table...
This year I'm thankful for YOU, and you, and you, because you've helped to make this topsy-turvy year quite wonderful.

I hope your Thanksgiving is nourishing, restorative, and deliciously sweet.

And now, let's eat!

Is this Excitement I'm Feeling?

Hi everyone, this week is f-l-y-ing by, don't you think? I'm in Southern California, getting ready for Unique LA, enjoying time with family, and snapping hundreds of photographs of my nephews. Ooh how I love those little guys...

I'm thrilled to report that Unique LA asked me to contribute photographs for their window display! I drove by this weekend and had to snap a few photos. If you find yourself near the California Market Center in Los Angeles, my photographs would love for you to give them a wave hello.

I'll be back later today with more news, photos, and a special sale in my shop!
