Coit Tower is such a famous part of the San Francisco city skyline it’s hard to imagine it not being there atop Telegraph Hill. Yet as much as I love seeing the tower and climbing to the top for the amazing views of the city, it’s the murals in the lobby that I most wanted to contemplate on my recent […]
My entry for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Shadows. Let’s see what is hiding within the shadows. Shadows in black and white can be so dramatic.
During the three-day Labor Day weekend the beach and picnic areas at Negro Bar State Park are always teeming with sun- and fun-seekers. But at 7:30 on Tuesday morning, with the holiday finished and everyone struggling back to work, the beach and the parking lots are peaceful and deserted — except for these very busy guys.
The theme of Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is C words: Needs to be at least 4 letters in length. Feel free to use your native language as your inspiration for this challenge, just please give us the word in your language and the english translation. Use your imagination for this theme.

So I’ll save those for another time and instead show you some pictures from a bit further north on the California coast. In July […]
Here is another small local gem I’ve been overlooking for far too long. Zittel Farms in Folsom offers fresh produce, a pumpkin patch, educational tours for school children, and even Christmas trees in season. When I walk past the property early in the mornings there’s not much going on, but it still makes a very nice break from shopping centers and […]
All summer long as I hike along dirt trails surrounded by high weeds, I’m cautiously looking out for rattlesnakes. I’ve spotted them as early as March, both in 2014 and 2015; but this year I hadn’t seen one single snake of any type — until last Tuesday, when I was lucky enough to encounter this little guy at Negro Bar. When I tried to coax him off the trail (lest he be run over by somebody on a mountain bike), he coiled up and fiercely shook his tail at me before giving up and slithering off into the dry weeds.
