Photo of the Week, March 28, 2011

Meet Harley, a female Bull mastiff. This picture is from a trip last summer to a ranch south of Santa Fe, NM. Thought the saddle and hitching post went well with a dog the size of a small horse. Harley is a very friendly dog, always with head at petting level (which was above my waist, and I'm 6'2")........but with one major problem....slobber!!!

Photo of the Week - March 21, 2011

Robert's Cottages on The Strand in Oceanside. These were built in 1928, and are right on the beach in North Oceanside. This image was taken just after sunset, but with enough light to still reflect off of the front of the units. This is one of my images from my "Oceanside-The Dark Side" series, a collection of images taken with very little or no help from the sun.

New Web Site Announcement & "Photo of the Week" for March 1

I'd like to announce that my web site had been completely redesigned with many new features added. The site address is still the same:
The newest feature is a Photo of the Week. Check out this link to the archive page. I'll be updating this feature each week with a new image from some of my past work or a current project. Also, the site now gives viewers the ability to purchase prints, and pay for them through Paypal.
