THIS IS THE MEMORIAL DAY I’M TRYING TO FORGET

On May 22, National Road Trip Day, I decided to drive around the neighborhood, picking up some groceries and the mail. I also added a hundred new road trip images to the website, once i got home – while praying for better days ahead.

Hopefully, this pandemic is peaking and will begin to pass. Still, it has made existing problems all the more apparent. The incompetence and sheer selfishness exhibited by many has made the nation that our veterans sacrificed their lives for look pathetic.

THE FUJI G617 FILM CAMERA

This is one of only two medium format cameras that I’ve kept from the film days. The other is a Hasselblad 500C. They both remain relevant for making large prints. Wth the roll film tha’s still available today.

The Fuji G617 is a large yet lightweight photographic machine that produces amazing panoramic images captured at 6cm x 17cm in size. That’s plenty big to print huge murals if you want. All manual, no light meter. Make sure you get the special ND filter. Continue reading “”

I was fortunate to have many travel photographs published in their books over the years. Here’s a Seattle cover of mine made on slide film before Photoshop. Continue reading “”

THANKS 000!

It’s great to have my images included again in 000 Magazine. Issue 012 features my coverage of Cameron Healy at the wheel of his 1951 Le Mans class-winning 356 SL #46 on Mulholland Drive.

CRIS HUERGAS

Intention is everything. When fully met, it involves your whole purpose and being. It requires passion, reasonable thinking, and a commitment to follow through.

When times get tough, I try to remember that no matter what happens, intention will see you through every time. Be confident, look outside the box, leave the herd behind, move forward, and ride. Godspeed.
