California – Stuck in Customs

Daily Photo – the fog you can only see through from above

Yosemite is a wonderful place for photography, and it’s one of those places that is filled with an intimidating and rich photographic history. I don’t even understand how Ansel Adams did it back in the day; but I have a sense of it, I suppose. So this is un-Yosemite in a way. I aimed away from Yosemite, to all the little mountains that walk up to the great park, and I embraced all the color that I felt flowing inwards.

the rock moved so slowly that I did not notice

Daily Photo – the rock moved so slowly that I did not notice

This is a mysterious place!

This magical place is deep in Death Valley and virtually inaccessible. These massive rocks move across the desert pan, carving trails of time behind them. Countless theories exist about what causes this phenomenon. I stayed here all night, and this was taken just after midnight as the moon rose to make new shadows. I thought the moon might give some clues, but it did not. I lay on the hard pavement near the rock to see if I could sense movement. After half an hour, not only did I see no movement, but I also felt quite redonkulous.

I was completely nude while taking this photo. That has nothing to do with the photo, but I thought you might like to know.

Beverly Hills to Century City

Daily Photo – Beverly Hills to Century City

This image was from a fun day with some friends a few years back in LA. I was there for some work for a collector of my Fine Art and was able to have an impromptu photo shoot with some friends at the collector’s house. This is Sacha, and over there in the background you can see Century City surrounded by the flatness that is LA. (I also remember we recorded this afternoon in 360 for Passport subscribers, so if you saw that back then you got a peek behind the scenes of this awesome home.)

San Francisco at Dusk

Daily Photo – San Francisco at Dusk

I spend a lot of time in San Francisco trying to work out how to get into the higher buildings, sometimes it’s as easy as just booking a hotel room, usually though it involves a lot of persuasion with the staff in a lobby. Always a fun challenge. 🙂

California?

Daily Photo – California?

This photo is tagged “california”, so I have to assume that’s where I took it… but I have no recollection of doing so… and therefore, no idea where in California it is. If it’s even there. Tag your photo’s properly people. It will help you later!

Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

Daily Photo – Pacific Coast Highway. USA.

5:30 AM. Alarm goes off. It’s always painful. People that say they are “morning people” — I think they are lying. But, when in a beautiful place like here along the Pacific Coast Highway in California, I always force myself, military style, to pop out of bed. On this occasion, my room had a little fireplace and everything which made it even harder to get out of bed! After I got downstairs, I started a little hike to get a good vantage of the coast and the sunrise.

Secret Beach. USA.

Daily Photo –

This spot is well known to people that photograph the Big Sur region a lot, but it remained unknown to me for a very long time! Even though I have shot in the Big Sur area many times, this spot always eluded me. So, when I parked and started the short walk, you can imagine how excited I was to find such a beautiful scene right under my nose!
