"Viewing the Storm Front"

This photo was taken with some cheap Pro Max 100 35mm film, but I'm pleased with the detail from stopping it to f/22.

Atheist Billboard near Bay Bridge

Great billboard mocking the most recent "judgement day" movement.

Under City: Swinging Curve

I just got back a roll of 120 film that I shot the other night. I was hoping some of these shots could be a part of the Under City series I'm creating. But the Fuji PRO 400h scans really grainy. Usually I don't mind grain, but I think I'm going for a sharper look for this series. Here's one of the shots that came out:

Lost Film Rolls

I captured these photographs at age nine with the first camera I ever owned, a Kodak Advantix. Recently, I found four old rolls of film that had never been developed. One, this Kodak TMY T-max 400 roll, had these three shots on it. I got the prints made with an optical black and white machine.

I don't remember taking them. But seeing them is like looking at a personal time capsule of places I remember visiting and of perspectives I maybe held as a child.

Under City

This evening I shot this in a very hard to get to spot. I'm happy with how it turned out. Especially the different subtle colors on the structures.

PSA included on Climate Change Channel

My PSA, "Educate Our Forests," was added to the Vimeo channel "Climate Change."

If you are familiar with my PSA, my work in general, and my personality, you'll understand that this is a milestone in my video making career.

The organization I made it for (the Educate Our Forests Foundation) will be ecstatic with this news. They generally find any type of approval valuable, because their fight for legitimacy (even among other nonprofit organizations) has been a fearsome uphill battle. It is a disturbing fact that the majority of Americans do not believe trees are sentient, and therefore, sadly, do not approve of their university education.

My eternal gratitude and special thanks to "Eyes of Truth" for creating the Climate Change channel on Vimeo and helping to validate not only my hard work, but that of the Educate Our Forests Foundation.
