Siena Staircase

Where do you stay when you visit a romantic Tuscan medieval town?  In a nunnery, of course!  In the case of Siena, the sisters at Alma Domus have the best deal in town.  It’s cheap, clean, and has a great view of the town.  This is the staircase to Alma Domus (on the left) with […]

Walking into the Sunset

Dusk in San Diego

Since I’m here – I thought it would be good to post one from here.  No – it wasn’t taken on this trip, but does it matter?  I don’t actually have any camera gear along this trip – except for a little Canon G9 which hasn’t left my briefcase.  This one was taken in March […]

Farm on the Hill

I’ve seen this shot every time I’ve driven through the Arboretum.  I finally had the opportunity to shoot it as we were setting up for a birthday picnic.  I’d still love to go back and get it right at dusk when the light is better – but I’m happy with how this turned out.  This […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

Hello?  It’s me, Elizabeth.  Guess what?  It’s my birthday!  I’m one year old today! It’s hard to believe my little one is a year already – amazing how it flies by.  In a year she’s already become a little person with a full personality that walks around and has opinions on things.  She also knows […]

A Date With Destiny

Kind of a small picture today for you – but one with a lot of impact.  Okay, second stupid joke in as many days.  The watermelon pictured had only a few hundredths of a seconds left on this mortal coil before splattering itself in a 15 foot radius.  What’s the story with the picture?  It […]

Christian’s Bale

Okay – sorry for the stupid pun in the title.  This shot is from Whidbey Island over the 4th of July last year.  On the 3rd, Raul and I were wandering the island scouting for good spots.  I always meant to get back here for the golden hour, but it never came together.  I used […]
