Antonio Aguilar statue, Olvera Street



I'm not sure why I really like this one -- I don't think it's an especially imaginative photo. But there's something about it I like. A more traditional-type pic:

Woman posing on Disney Hall



Right place at the right time. I could have slapped the telephoto on the camera, but I like the big view.

Another pic taken last week of the new Broad Museum + Disney Hall:

Stable horses with Nikon 85mm 1.4 ais





Just messing around at the stables where my domi partner works/rides. The second and third pics were taken with a Nikon 85mm 1.4 ais lens I just bought used. Still getting the hang of the manual focus but the thing is super sharp.

Lake Tahoe kayaking & more

















Some pics from my recent visit to Lake Tahoe and surrounding area last month. Just trying some things and updating by Blue the Dog portfolio. Top four shots are my favorites and I think there may be a better way to process the second shot. I wish the clouds that developed in the last couple of days were there for the long day we spent kayaking from Sand Harbor. 

As an aside, if you want to kayak on Tahoe the absolute two must-visit places are Emerald Bay (see third to last photo above) on the California side -- you can paddle over from one of the South Lake Tahoe beaches -- and Sand Harbor on the Nevada side. As usual with anything Tahoe, keep in mind that there are some serious Asshole Motorboaters out there who will kick up some pretty big wakes. I know the local sheriff's patrol the lake, but to what effect I don't know. If I was the king, I'd prohibit the Motorfuckers from going more than 5 mph within a half-mile of shore.

Wrights Lake, revisited









Spent a few days camping at Wrights Lake, just west of the Desolation Wilderness and nearish to Lake Tahoe. The lake is on the small side, but very picturesque -- and the sunsets can be quite good, as the first photo shows. 

Nothing special up above -- doing anything original with some of these landscapes is tough -- but I really like the photo of my partner Julie and our dog Blue at the campfire. The image does a good job of capturing a moment and that's really what photography is about. 

One note: if you're visiting Wrights Lake, be sure to bring a kayak and to paddle across the lake to the inlet. Even in this year's low water, we were able to paddle up the inlet to the second bridge. The second photo from the bottom shows how narrow the inlet can be -- it's really interesting back there.
