The Way to Oslo

Opposite the Sunset

Opposite the Sunset

These landscapes were captured from a large cruise ship while approaching and leaving Oslo, Norway,


North of Kona

Napoopoo View

The Big Island is mostly covered by lava fields and volcanic ash. The beaches are no exception. Few of them are sandy.

While visiting the petroglyphs, I spoke to a lady who said “I don’t do drugs, but there are some trippy looking trees up at the North end of this island. Just drive past Hawi until the road ends.” She forgot to mention the steep trail down to the beach.


Volcanos National Park

Lava Landscape

Lava Landscape

This is a magical place where molten lava and poisonous gases spew forth from the ground. Nature is at its peak of fury here. The message is we are nothing. In minutes one passes from desolate inhospitable areas at altitude to lush rain forests and pacific beaches. The landscape is unreal often covered by lava flows.


The Streets of New Orleans

This is mostly about street photography, but I thought I would show this offbeat coastal scene first.


Cape of Good Hope

Baboon and Toyota

Baboon and Toyota

What is the difference between a baboon and a wind surfer?  Wind surfers are less likely to try and break into your car.  This is where the Indian and Atlantic oceans meet.  Funny, but I could not find a line in the water.  I photographed the baboons from too close for safety.  They were running around wild in the street.


Making the Most of a Cloudy Day

Grassy Dunes

On the way back to San Francisco the sky was white all day.  I was lucky it did not rain but a few drops.  By a round about route I traveled to the Point Reys area, Muir Woods and finally, across the Golden Gate bridge.  My only hope is these do not look like the usual shots from those places.


Houston Fine Arts Scene 1112

The first four images in the gallery are from War’Hous Visual Studios, an art gallery owned by  artist Dandy Warhol.  It’s located at 4715 Main right off the US 59 Main Street exit while headed East.  The show featured works from several emerging photographers and many pieces were fine art nudes.  Prices were accessible with most works being under $200.

Just a few blocks away from War’Hous is the new home of Diverse Works, a non profit dedicated to supporting the arts.  This installation was produced by Franklin Evans.
