Category Archives: PICTURE BREAK

There are so many pictures I’ve taken over the years that I thought would never see daylight. This is where they will: a “Picture of the Day” kind of thing (only that I didn’t want to commit to doing it every day). So, this is “Picture of the however-long-it-took-me-to-post-a-new-one…

Pedro and baby

Back in Desemboque, Mexico, I met Pedro. He’s a diver, which is very risky business over there- they stay underwater for hours sending bags of scallop or oysters and have to deal with a lot of rickety equipment. On top of that, they migrate all year long from one place to another in correlation with the fishing seasons. Two years ago, while in Desemboque he left a very beautiful girl pregnant. He only sees his illegal son (he is, of course, married somewhere else) during the scallop season there.

Wedding Day

On a nice summer day in Georgetown in Washington DC, I stumbled upon these two beautiful ladies who were taking wedding pictures (before their wedding to each other, that is).

Jerry and the fire

Haven’t gotten a chance to share most of my pictures from Mexico. This is Jerry, one of the most interesting people I met while down there. He was warming up to a fire from a nylon net before another long day of fishing.

Singin' the blues

Street People

Often the most interesting people you’d meet during your day, these people add color and flavor to a place.

Ben Lundy played the harmonica in downtown Reno, Nev., while his dog Cotton Candy howled along, Saturday night, June 26, 2010. Moving to Reno from a small town because he “likes the action,” and Having lived in Reno for over 30 years, most of which without a home, Lundy now has a companion with whom he can sing the blues.

Brooks NPPA chapter (if you don’t know what it is- google will tell you) organizes a shoot off every once in a while. I was lucky enough to win second place in the last one, so it’s probably a good time to share this image. It was taken at night using a 30 second exposure when I noticed a little constant wave by the Ojai hot springs.
