Alex and I had planned to shoot some sunset shots on the beach. As luck would have it, the day was overcast and foggy, with very little visibility. So we decided to do something different...

Athletics vs. Red Sox


I went to see the Boston Red Sox play the Oakland A's at the Oakland Coliseum on April 20. The weather was cloudy with a chance of rain. And you're not supposed to take back-packs to the game either.

So most of my gear stayed home, and I just took my 40D with the 70-210mm f/4 lens - in a shopping bag.

Official Web Site Created!!!

I now have an official web site at my own domain.

I have started putting my portfolios there, and the photographs are available for sale.

As special appreciation for readers of my blog, I'm returning the favor by taking 30% off the top of all products.  Just enter Coupon code: BL_VIS_111 during the checkout process.

The coupon applies to everything other than Shipping & Handling (it is out of my hands).

There are many interesting products available, from several print sizes to wall clings to statuettes to sweatshirts and items like magnets, coasters, mousepads and puzzles.

Since I'm still working on populating the photographs on the site, if you don't see something from my Flickr stream that you'd like (or for select photographs get the "resolution not high enough" error), just send me an email, and I'll be happy to take care of you.

Of course, don't forget that I'll be glad to capture your memories into photographs.  Here's a link to my contact information.

Dissecting "I Still got the Blues..."

I still got the Blues...
As I mentioned in my last post, I've been taking a few pictures of my acoustic guitar. I decided to get something a bit dramatic, playing with some light and shadows.

Continue for details...

My Yamaha Guitar

Old Film Acoustic Guitar
Several years ago, I used to play the guitar.  I've sort of given it up since I took up photography.  Didn't make a conscious decision, but rather have just not made the time needed to keep practicing.  Over time, the callused fingers heal, the finger-strength and speed diminish, and after a bit longer, the finger memory goes.  Now you have to actually think about what notes to play next.

Go Packers!!!

The Green Bay Packers are in the Super Bowl.  It has been several years since their last trip, and I am very optimistic for the win.

Homeless in San Francisco

Homeless in San Francisco

The cold nights that we've recently had in the San Francisco area reminded me of this photograph I took a couple of years ago (December 2008).

Happy New Year!!!

New Year_30
A quick post to wish every one a Happy New Year. I spent New Year's Eve taking pictures of the San Francisco fireworks from Treasure Island. It is a great view, and overall it was a beautiful night (with some rain showers here and there).

Tried shooting a video of the finale, and it came out "decent". I had my camera set to Bulb mode for the still pictures, and that ends up shooting the video in Auto mode. I think the video's a bit over-exposed at times, but sharing it anyway :-)
