Just when I had given up on Memory Monday, I cleaned out my desk and discovered a stack of prints I had completely forgotten about. A bit over 20 years ago, in late July 2003, the Big Guy and I rented a car and drove over to the coast near Fort Ross State Park to stay in our then-favorite little […]

One of my favorite efforts was the Jules Motel sign in Clearlake, California, which I photographed and initially shared back in 2017. I treasure this image because even […]
