PURE GEOMETRY

It’s always fun to go out with the camera without an agenda. No ego, no goals, just play! Looks easy doesn’t it?

SPEEDSTER WARS

Check out my latest article for Road Scholars Magazine about an era when over 30 Porsche Speedsters would show up for a single event in California. With cameo appearances by James Dean and Steve McQueen, and Randy Leffingwell’s story of the America Roadster, the October 2017 issue is packed with lots of retro reading fun!

THE STORY BEHIND THE SHOT

Here’s a story that seems appropriate today. Twenty years ago I hired a pilot to fly me over the Everglades at sunrise to photograph the damage from Hurricane Andrew. More

PIGS (Three Different Ones)

It’s 2017 and the first day of fall. It doesn’t seem possible that it’s been forty years since Pink Floyd released Animals. This album is still a great listen. Especially this track. All 17 minutes of it. The original UK vinyl sounds incredible. This is true for all Pink Floyd LPs, including the holy grail for record collectors, the original mono version of The Piper at the Gates of Dawn released 50 years ago.

IRMA MEETS FLORIDA

My thoughts go out to my friends in the Southeastern U.S. during hurricane season. These Ibises are native to Sanibel Island, FL and will hopefully survive.

WALTER BECKER (1950-2017)

The elusive genius and co-founder of Steely Dan passed away five days ago. I’ve been listening to a lot of his music lately, and the hits he co-wrote with Donald Fagen are legendary: “Rikki Don’t Lose That Number”, “Kid Charlemagne”, “Katy Lied”, “Aja”, “Hey Nineteen”, and the autobiographical “Third World Man”. His uniquely sharp wit and musical linguistics will be dearly missed and never replicated.

CMYK REVISITED

OK, so we know about Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black. But can we include each color into one photograph without Photoshop?

Yes we can! This untouched image was made near one of my favorite towns, Pt. Reyes Station, CA. Don’t forget to calibrate your monitor.

The fourth and final part of our CMYK proof checker’s series… K is for black. A pure black (and a pure white) in a photograph are important to me. Be safe during the solar eclipse today! More
