More image review for the new website and I ran across this one I shot at Mankas Lodge in Inverness, CA. It seemed like the perfect weekend image. Hope yours has something like this in it.
Happy Weekend friends.

editing/jesse schlesinger

I've been editing through so many images lately, preparing my new website. It is a bit mind boggling how many images are never seen from a shoot. The "hero" images emerge and they are the ones that speak for the whole experience. And yet there are little moments like this one from my time at Jesse Schlesinger's studio when he was at the Headlands Center for the Arts. Because it was not chosen for the People Watching post for the NYTimes, it fell out of my mind. Editing through all these images feels like meeting friends I haven't seen in a long while. It makes me happy.

frank lloyd wright in tokyo/pt. 2

I am a sucker for a good chalkboard. This one in is the the private school that Frank Lloyd Wright built in Tokyo - the Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan. I visited when I was in Tokyo this past November. I wasn't there long but I did shoot a bit and I plan do a proper post on it soon. Until then, lets dream about chalk, erasers, chalk dust and all those other obsolete classroom necessities of the past...

Modern Originals/ the almost print set

I thought I would share another print set. I ended up not offering this one for the Kickstarter but I really love it. Maybe I'll set up an online shop for my prints...who knows.
