Just as we were headed out the door for our evening walk Sandy quickly ran back in… I stuck my head out and saw a baby skunkbutt.
I knew the trails it traveled so just stood there with my camera knowing it didn’t have any other way to get to the backyard. The risk paid off as I got the shots.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This year for Sandy’s Birthday we drove down to Big Sur. 1st stop McWay Falls, a very iconic spot but without beach access you can only shoot it from so many angles.
It’s a shame not to use this jacuzzi tub, but both of us were thinking about how much water it would use.
For Saturday lunch I got reservations at the Sierra Mar Restaurant. The food was amazing!Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This year I chose to shoot the Memorial Ceremony at the Mountain View Cemetery in Piedmont. The overcast day made for some flat photos, but in the true spirit of the day who cares. It was a touching event.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This past weekend we got quite a treat when we followed Jon up to Calistoga for a private concert at Jessica’s Barn. The concert was held in … a barn. The sound was not bad considering the venue. We also got to meet the Farallon Quintet. I had a flash issue which caused the group photos to be hidden from the view of anyone on this planet. Meanwhile as usual we meet the nicest folks when we tag along with Jon. Our host Michael Savage was kind enough to feed us dinner. He makes an incredible Cabernet by the way.
We spent the night in Santa Rosa and met up with Jon & Kathy for lunch at a lovely place in St Helena, the Goose and Gander. I had a great octopus dish and the dessert beet cake (no photo) was incredible.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This caught me eye, so I spent hours off and on trying to capture it.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This year we made the decision to make Tonkotsu Ramen for Mother’s Day. The broth was made during 2 prior weekends as the pork bones have to be boiled for 12hrs.
I was so focused on the food I forgot to take any photos other than a Aunty portrait after lunch. I was shooting into the sun so I brought out the Alien Bees strobe with a 7ft umbrella, full power.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
This morning I decided to attempt to shoot the Yuen (Noah & Nico) boys. I choose a deck behind Harbor Bay Sports Club. As always I have a plan of how these shoots will go, but the kids are have a different agenda. The sun was right in their faces which is a no-no but I thought I would challenge myself.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
Easter at the Yuen’s this year. Unfortunately I didn’t take many photos.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
We had to get Koa ready for Easter Sunday so a little dog polo and a mango scented bath was called for.

Its so easy to shoot burds in our backyard. Cormorants are playful and very active. They are either diving for fish or spreading the wings in the sun.
My Sony A6000 can capture 10fps (frames per second) I’ll spare you all the poop shots but I knew he would do this, the bastard.Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite
