Still Life in Lockdown #1: Welcome to the Real World

 This week I present a series of some of my favorite black and white shots from the last 13 months.  The pandemic forced this street photographer to turn to still life shots.  (I have inspiration.)

See my whole series here.

The Things We Miss #7: Concerts at the Bowl


I finish my week of looking back (and forward) with a shot of a heady, wild-hearted encore at the Hollywood Bowl.  Hold up your lighters, friends.  We'll be back to normal soon.  (See the whole series here.)

The Things We Miss #5: Movies at El Capitan in Hollywood


I continue this week with a daily photo from the archives: things I can't wait go get back to when Covid-19 is finally behind us.  Can't you hear the organ?  Can't you taste the incredibly stale popcorn?  Heaven.  (See the entire series here.)

I've embedded my April film pick!  Watch it here.

The Things We Miss #4: Crowded Restaurants in Pasadena

Every day this week I'm going into my files to post photos of things I can't wait to see and do again when the pandemic finally ends.  I promise I'll never get irritated waiting for a coffee refill again.  (See the entire series here.)

The Things We Miss #2: The Fourth of July Parade in South Pasadena

The Things We Miss #1: Street Dancing in Santa Monica


As we all look eagerly toward the future, I thought I'd go through my archives and post some of my favorite photographs of our former life.  Who knew the ordinary would become so extraordinarily missed?

Longtime visitors to this blog are familiar with this one.  I've used it in posters and promotions and I've posted it several times because it sums up a dizzying, free spirited, madcap joy that is so much a part of living in Los Angeles.  I can hear the salsa music.  I can taste the margaritas.  I can't wait until we can all do it again.

Stay tuned for more of my favorite shots.  I've been sidelined for over a year and I'm nostalgic... but hopeful.  (Click here for the series.)

Saving at Least One of Nine Lives...


Be sure to check out my March photography documentary film pick!  I curate monthly films for shutterbugs, embedded to watch free right here.  I've spent a lot of time studying the work of other photographers at home over lockdown in the last year.  I've seen some great films, and I want to share.

Magic in the Garden

My garden hose is a portal.  😳

(For a great photography video, my March photography film choice up!  Sadly, no zero gravity there, though.)
