Tomales, August 2022.
For the next couple of Mondays I’ll be finishing up the set of photos that, for whatever reason, seem to say Korea to me. Of course, some images are more obvious (e.g., traditional Korean roof construction), but then there are those, like some of this week’s collection, that remain much more of a mystery. In that case, I’m going mostly […]
On our most recent stay in Point Arena last month, I was eager to get out one morning and take a walk down the road to the pier. It wasn’t the first time I had visited the pier, but this time I arrived on foot and was able to look around at some of the details I missed before. It […]
Photos can’t even begin to convey how amazing and overwhelming the landscape is when you’re standing in Arizona’s Petrified Forest National Park. I’m so glad that we stopped and took a couple of hours to see this incredible place, even though we only scratched the surface of what the park has to offer. One of our stops along the road […]
I think that once you’ve seen one of Al Farrow’s mosaic sculptures you’ll never quite forget it. That was why on my visit to the deYoung Museum in San Francisco last August I suddenly found myself experiencing a strange feeling of deja vu; it took me a few minutes to realize why.

We enjoyed our peaceful walk through the ferns and redwoods at The Hot Spot last September, but I’d really love to go back and see if I can learn a bit more about what I saw there! There are 21 wooden posts along the trail with corresponding informational notes in the trail guide pamphlet. Since we wandered somewhat randomly through […]
Although the iconic notion of a lighthouse is a lonely structure standing straight and tall on the rocks, dashed by the raging sea, lighthouses actually come in many shapes and sizes. Most US lighthouses these days are either completely automated or else they’ve been done away with altogether. I feel quite lucky I’ve been able to visit a few of […]
I don’t have any profound theme going on today — just a small and completely random selection of photos I’ve shot over the past seven years. Today they’re helping remind me how blessed I’ve been, able to visit these different spots and to have these memories to hold onto.
I’ve often heard it said that cats are especially attracted to people who dislike them, and that sure seems to be true around here. I wouldn’t say that the Big Guy hates cats, but he has absolutely no patience for them strolling around on top of our cars and using our yard for a litterbox. His resentful feelings didn’t stop […]
