Journey of a body on this earth


These are a few of my favorite things…

Looking through that tiny space we call a viewfinder, photographers present unique little worlds all unto their own.  The fact that this same tiny space can reveal expansive landscapes, detailed macros and everything in between fascinates me!   I love that photography can transform this tiny viewfinder space again and again into images that spark curiosity, wonder, laughter and even sometimes tears.

Today I’d like to share with you some of my favorite (non-Word Press) photography sites along with a few words that describe why I love them so much.  I’m also sharing an image from Muir Beach.

I hope you enjoy the links I’ve shared below.  Let me know what you think!


Kapete – haunting, abandoned, thought provoking, artistic!

Ole Steffensen – architecture, BIG, amazing

Kent Keller – sensitive, horses, wild, utah

Daniel James Greenwood – landscapes, big, beautiful, fantastic light

Miyako Koumura – macro, romantic, lovely

Swee Oh – black and white, fabulous architecture photos, unique street, talented!

Rosana – soft, lovely, romantic, texture

Nikos Bantouvakis – Clever, artistic, creative, colorful




I’m back at Mare Island.  There were so many photo opportunities there.  Incredible!   Instead of my Nikon I used my Sony A7.  I really love that camera.  It’s so much easier to carry around.




Mare Island Camera Club Event

Last night 18 people showed up for my camera club event at Mare Island Historic Shipyard in Vallejo.  I think that’s the largest attendance since I’ve been doing this.  It was really nice because people seemed to be excited about the location.  Already over 50 pictures taken by club members have been uploaded into our meetup event online.

In these images you’ll see the street address containing “Nimitz”.  The name “Nimitz” is after Commander Chester W. Nimitz of the US Navy’s Pacific Fleet during World War II.  He moved to the San Francisco Bay Area after the war and served as a Regent of the University of California from 1948-1956.  The name is popular around the bay area.  Along with a street on Mare Island named for him, Interstate 880 (the Nimitz Freeway) is also named for him.  I still call the freeway “the Nimitz” and have never quite made the switch to saying “880”.

A few posts ago I shared some history of Mare Island and you can click here if you’d like to read more about it.
