Dos Caballeros




Recently I took a drive to the Napa Valley area to photograph fall colors in the vineyards. These two gentlemen were relaxing in Calistoga, sitting along the main street. They were quite willing to be photographed, although they may look a little apprehensive here. This image was taken late in the evening, it was much darker than it appears. Gotta love the new 5D Mk II and its low light resolution.

Lucky Day



I was driving home from a photoshoot and noticed that my odometer was rolling over a bunch of 13’s. It’s a good thing I’m not superstitious (I’ve heard that it’s bad luck to be superstitious) or I might have been worried that something bad was about to happen. I was more interested in stopping in a safe spot and taking this photo. Lucky for me I was able to stop at just the right moment. I parked in a nice little quiet spot, positioned  just under a ladder, in front of a black-cat-crossing, and I think my tires were resting on a crack in the street.

I can’t help it if I’m lucky.
