August through Dec 2001

This area is mostly for my friends & family. Photos were taken with a Kodak DC20 or a Kodak DC120 Zoom.

It's been a long time since I've had a chance to update the site. Sorry everybody!

I'm making some changes to the format. The most obvious of these will be the new photo size. I'm moving up to 7 x 5.25 at 72 dpi.

Side of a truck, Oakland.

Yes. More trucks.

Still Life at Steak House.

This is a classic example of an interesting lighting situation. Ends up looking set up - artificial. Dig the composition. You can see my sweets and me reflected in the mirrored globe there. Yes, I am not looking through the viewfinder. I gotta do that more often!

Still Life at Steak House - Detail

Chinatown, San Francisco

This one caught my eye because there were so many different surfaces at different depths. Took me a while to compose properly.

Oakland CA

So Sienna & I are looking at an apartment because she wants to move. We show up at this apartment house and here is this huge tropical plant growing out of control next door. I'm all like, "All right!"

Gas station. Oakland

What a crazy lighting situation!

Pete's Coffee in the Marina, San Francisco

I dislike this Pete's for some reason. It's like everyone is checking you out, and yet they wish to walk over you because you are in their way. Well, it's good coffee...

The Marina. San Francisco, CA

No Stopping.

Sky. San Francisco

If memory serves, I shot this out of a car... Nothing I could say that isn't already obvious.

Somewhere, CA

This was shot around Thanksgiving. I don't recall where we were exactly. This tree looks like it was spray painted.

Oakland, CA

Broken safety glass in the grass there caught my eye. Decided to try & get a good composition. We were xmas shopping.

Still Life

Kept looking at this upon awaking. Finally took a picture so I could stop wondering if it would make a good photo.
