Beached rose study

While walking the beach I happened upon a wilted rose standing strong in the sand.

The waves were crashing around it and yet it did not break.

I don’t know how it got there and I don’t know how its story ended but I will share with you a few photos of the moments I photographed it :)

Another Site Launched

Just finishing up a website for Julie Arbuckle a legal resolution expert for the Napa Valley. She is a Mediator, Arbitrator and Evaluator who resolves a wide array of disputes and many different types of litigated cases. Read her resume here.

My designer friend John Schall developed the logo and the branding of this site and I must say it helped illustrate her message of resolution well.

Symbiotic Flow

postcards

What we have here is a art piece for a show with unusual concept on what is means to be a terrestrial being. I thought about this for a while before I chose my subject. Anyone who knows me knows that water has always been a battle. We lived in the country when I was very young and without a well. It was hard to get water so I learned early an appreciation for water conservation. Later we have a well but the water is high in minerals that the plants in my garden don’t like so water treatment is a must. Without water all things living will die so it’s impossible to live without.

When we send missions into space to explore other planets the water is the first thing we look for or some sign that it was there. We don’t look for gold or silver first – it’s always water because that is what can support life as we know it. Hence my photo so freely letting the water flow. To the left I overlay the lack of water and to the right I overlay the life it brings. It may be aquatic versus terrestrial but without the aquatic the terrestrial life can not be.

Pet website in progress

Here is a website I’ve been working on.

Below is a screenshot of the home page mockup and one support page along with a rough logo composition. The idea of the site is to pair breeders and buyers with dogs that make good companion pets. Not all shelter dogs fit this description and there is still a need for breeders than breed for certain temperaments that will make a good companion. Through user feedback and a strict set up rules for breeders the idea is to ensure quality in the puppies that are listed here. The database portion of this website is being developed by someone else and is still a work in progress.

When the Devil burns…

ELC_2972When I walked the dog in the evening and saw a strange glow in the west I knew it was bad.

I immediately headed over to the Marsh Creek Reservoir where I knew the reflection in the water would be good. I wasn’t alone as many other photographers knew it would be as well.

More on the Diablo fire here.

It reminded me of a volcano with flowing lava!
