I have a new exhibit at the Orinda Library Gallery in Orinda, CA. The theme is the beautiful parks of California. The exhibit includes pictures from the following galleries on my website: Yosemite, Death Valley, Joshua Tree, Bodie (ghost town), Mono Lake, and Point Lobos. The exhibit will be there for the month of February. Please stop by if you have the opportunity. There will be a reception on February 5th from 4 to 5:30 and refreshments will be served. Having grown up in West Texas, where there was just wide open prairie as far as the eye could see, I have found the beautiful park system in California a wonderful change. I have been exploring the various parks over the last 25 years, and have photographed them using film cameras (Nikon 35mm, Hasselblad 2 ¼, and Tachihara Wood 4X5) and digital (Nikon D100, Nikon D 90 and Nikon D800). I continue to use both film and digital.

Please explore all the various galleries on my website. There is also a link to a video my son Tom made of my show at the Studio Channel Islands Art Gallery in Camarillo, California depicting various aspects of the farms and scenery of southern California. The pictures are in the “Ventura Country” gallery.
