Sometimes you just happen across a scene and you just happen to have your camera with you and well...

Sebastopol Parking Lot

I dont know why but whenever I look at groups of photographs that I have taken, I have found that the ones that I like the most are "slice of life" type things. I mean, these are the kinds of things I see whenever I am just sitting somewhere. Usually I dont have my camera or I am too shy to whip it out. On this day though, I was sitting around with fotocali at Whole Foods in Sebastopol and well, one thing about sitting outside Whole Foods with fotocali is that you might as well get out the camera and get over all the shyness about snapping pictures of *whatever* in public. It turns out that some of my favorite shots from California were from when I was sitting there at Whole Foods.

This is one that I liked a lot. I love anonymous people in photographs and I love capturing them as they are just going about their business. This is one of those photographs that calms me (and I have needed some calming lately). Just looking at it, calms me. :)

Father and Daughter

This is one that I like a lot. But I wish I had a good graphics program so I could change it. I love that no one's faces are showing so the photograph is kind of annonymous. I like the beer on the table and I like how the line from the sunlight on the table and the edge of the table itself create lines that draw a person's eye to it. What I dont like about this photo though is the background. I think it is too busy. I would like to try to darken it up without changing what is in the foreground. Hmmm.

I think I might need a new computer if I want to get decent photo manipulation software and since I am going to Hawaii next winter, I guess that will have to wait. Oh well, this photo isnt going anywhere. I can always fix it later. Or not. :)

A Kid

I really liked this photo of a kid that I know. She is a great kid and I think that this photo really captures her personality.

A baby

I was just playing around today with some effects. I thought this one came out ok. It is a "watercolor" effect. :) digital photos are sooooo much fun :)

Self Portrait in my Living Room

There is just something about the way I have been feeling lately that has a real narcissistic quality to it. So, what the heck, I might as well go with it :) There is nothing special about this photograph except that it is a photograph of ME :)

Just Some Trees

These are just a bunch of trees in an empty lot across the street from my parent's house. Unfortunately, land prices have risen a lot in the past few years there so it is only a matter of time before someone decides to build a house there.
