An Ilocano Adventure, Part One:  Ilocos Sur

An Ilocano Adventure, Part One: Ilocos Sur

I’ve been wanting to see the northernmost region on the island of Luzon for quite some time and on my most recent trip to the Philippines I finally made it. The two provinces that rest at the tip of the most populous island of P.I. are named Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte.  Famed for well ... Read More »

Gowanus, Young Man

Gowanus, Young Man

From the vault:  Some shots from a tour of Gowanus. Growing up in the Bronx, I had always thought Gowanus was the name of some esoteric disease.  Turns out it’s a pretty interesting story, especially right now; bordering tony Park Slope, it’s dead in the crosshairs of good ol’ NYC-style gentrification. The infamous canal, redolent ... Read More »

Maui 2017

Maui 2017

Aloha! Below are some shots from the latest trip to Maui.  Ah, Maui…. These were all shot on a Yashica Mat TLR (hence the 6×6 format) from the early 1960’s that was given to me as a gift.  This trip was the last time I’m gonna use the friggin’ thing.  A long story, but the ... Read More »

Borrego Springs Part One

Borrego Springs Part One

Winter 2016-2017 brought seven inches of rain to the Southern California desert landscape.  One of the graces of this winter’s largesse was a spectacular wildflower superbloom.  To see the desert floor carpeted with flowers was undoubtedly a quasi-psychadelic experience. Borrego Springs is a small town that sits beside Anza Borrego Desert State Park.  The pictures ... Read More »

Some more images from my first visit to Yosemite, this time all captured with medium format camera systems. Can’t wait to get back – a very special place.  I am DOWN with YOSEMIGHT! Special thanks to my partner in crime “HOLLYWOOOOOD” for driving me up there and keeping me awake. Read More »

YoseMight! (Part One)

YoseMight! (Part One)

So far, 2017 has been a year of “firsts”! I made my first pilgrimage to Yosemite, a sacrosanct location for nature lovers.  And photogs, ever since Ansel Adams shot the shit out of it.  (Honestly, there’s really no reason for anyone to ever take another photo there ever again after the work he did.  It’s ...

Venice Canals

Venice Canals

How much of a dope am I?  Well, I’ll tell ya.  I’ve been living out here in El Lay for almost twelve years, and I had not been to the Venice Canals until this year.  THAT’S how much of a dope I am. I’ve become increasingly curious about these X Series cameras from Fuji.  I ... Read More »
