Hard Living

It’s obviously hard to say what exactly this man is thinking about. I didn’t talk to him. However, there is a hard anger in his face that’s hard to ignore.

The photograph was developed in black and white because I wanted to emphasize the bleak nature of this picture.

Tall Lean Strider


Walking around the Common today in forty degree weather, we come upon this athletic looking lady striding purposely along as if it’s seventy-five.

Waiting For A Fare

Closeup photos of people with high contrast between them and the background are hard to come by. With the snap focus of the Ricoh cameras they’re a little easier than with a conventional DSLR. (At least that’s my opinion.)

Hard Wear

I really like taking photographs of people on the street with window reflections behind them. This shot is a good example of that. It’s out front of a coffee bar with the reflection of the city library in the background. The logo on the woman’s jacket serves as the picture’s title.

The natural light on the woman’s face is helpful too. 

Quiet Moment

It’s always a pleasure seeing a completely contented person. It may only be for the briefest moment but sitting still and loosing oneself in thought should be a daily goal for all of us.

Digital Detox

There always but ALWAYS is this damn digital addiction in our pocket or purse. It’s just got to be cut back. I’m speaking for myself of course but my guess is I’m onto a problem that you have too. I’ve deleted Twitter today and am trying to get my courage up to delete Instagram as well.

40th Wedding Anniversary

large-0022118.jpg

We’re in Petaluma currently. It’s a lovely, funky little city about an hour north of San Francisco. At 8 in the morning we we headed out to breakfast. As we were waithing for the restaurant to open its door, this lovely coupled came up and was waiting too. It was their 40th wedding anniversary and they looked radiantly happy.

Of course what they wore gave a clue that something special was going on. (They leave for Hawaii tomorrow.)
