San Francisco (Open) Studios 2020

As the parenthesis in the title indicate, this year’s Open Studios is a bit different. We can’t have a physical event inside a building with hundreds of visitors. ArtSpan did a great job transforming the Open Studios into an on-line event. Now you don’t even need to come to San Francisco to see all the […]

Orchid Flowers

On a rainy day with a stay-at-home order in place, I finally took the time to photograph my blooming orchids. It’s not my typical subject, but it was perfect for today. Several years ago, I rescued two white orchid plants that a home staging company in my office building had put into the compost bin. […]

Rolling Clouds over Bernal

I love how clouds continuously change their shape and disappear like they never existed before. This is exactly what happened last night. I couldn’t resist to capture it with my camera.          

A Seat at the Window

The other day I got a window seat as I was flying out of San Francisco. And for once, the window was relatively clean! To top it off, we were leaving just around sunset and I was on the, literally, right side. The fog was already rolling into San Francisco and I loved how it […]

Today was the second and final day of the SailGP racing in San Francisco. While team Japan dominated yesterday, they struggled with equipment problems today.

San Francisco SailGP – Training Sessions

Big foiling sailing boats are back in San Francisco! This is the second stop of the new sailing circuit Sail GP. The boats are based on the ones used for the 2017 America’s Cup in Bermuda, but are “redesigned, re-engineered and rebuilt from the inside out”. These boats are fast (>60 mph) and they are […]

Favorites – 2018

Since 2011, I review my images at the end of the year and select my favorites. I try to balance them so that they do not all show star trails or be from the same location. This year’s selection contains pictures from Seattle, Mongolia, Paris, Oregon, San Francisco, Death Valley, Bodie and the California coast. […]

The Potrero Hill Power Plant at Night

A couple of weeks ago, I spent a few hours with my photographer friends from Studio Nocturne SF at the Potrero Hill Power Plant, an event that was organized by Greta & Manu Schnetzler. This was a fun evening and I enjoyed playing with this industrial colossus and my little flashlight. Although I was there […]

Driftwood Calligraphy

Earlier this year, while walking on a beach in Northern California I found these different pieces of driftwood. Some of them evoked calligraphy. I didn’t move any pieces, but just looked for interesting compositions.
