“It is a cruel, ironical art, photography. The dragging of captured moments into the future; moments that should have been allowed to be evaporate into the past; should exist only in memories, glimpsed through the fog of events that came after. Photographs force us to see people before their future weighed them down….” ― Kate Morton model: @turtlegirlfit mua: @la_yen sponsored by: @nutrishoproseville special thanks to Jerry Sezar in Knightsen, CA for the location… NorCal’s premiere custom hot rod, muscle car and customs shop is having their annual Open House with shop tour, BBQ and live music 9/6. http://ift.tt/1ogGfCy

“When she transformed into a butterfly, the caterpillars spoke not of her beauty, but of her weirdness. They wanted her to change back into what she always had been. But she had wings.” ― Dean Jackson PT/Fitness Model: @culligans25 Shot at @noellesbody in Brentwood, CA http://ift.tt/1ogGfCy

#TAHOESHOW 2014

When I first met Wendy over a year ago I was dumbstruck by her physique and work ethic. Two months ago, after she didn’t place at an event I told her that I didn’t wanted to put more pressure on her, but I had a dream where she was an Olympian and was certain it was going to happen this year. Tonight was the last figure qualifier for this year’s Olympia. “She was the living, breathing proof that the hard things in life didn’t have to defeat you – or even define you.” Susan Wiggs And tonight my buddy @wendyfortino became an Olympian :) CONGRATULATIONS WENDY

Moroccan Dreams

We stopped off at a friend’s house on our way out of Tahoe and as happens anytime I talk to people who travel the world, the conversation quickly turns to food. After agreeing on a paella party in a few weeks we ended hoping Morocco would stay peaceful long enough for a trip next year […]


MLV ON THE ROCKS

 “what is joy without sorrow? what is success without failure? what is a win without a loss? what is health without illness? you have to experience each if you are to appreciate the other. there is always going to be suffering. it’s how you look at your suffering, how you deal with it, that will […]

“When the mind is still, tranquil, not seeking any answer or any solution, neither resisting nor avoiding – it is only then that there can be a regeneration, because then the mind is capable of perceiving what is true; and it is truth that liberates, not your effort to be free.” – Krishnamurti …a photo […]

During my recent visit to Puerto Rico a hurricane and resulting flash flood almost fully submerged my SUV. REALLY! The water came up to the window sill. But beside those two hours of sheer terror, I had a great time :)


Nicaragua

Nicaragua

My buddy Anthony Giordano is an accomplished television producer and an even better friend. Recently he invited me down to spend some time at his rental property in Nicaragua. In addition to some of the greatest surf beaches in the world, I think these photographs give a glimpse of this beautiful country and it’s people.

No TFP

No TFP

So I was recently asked on Facebook,

“(I really like your photography) but one thing I have always wondered? How do you make a living at this? …are they friends and relatives? I am only asking, because they seem so comfortable in front of the camera.”


Summertime

As much as things change they seem to stay the same in the seaside town of Capitola and at the Santa Cruz Boardwalk. Image from last weekend’s photowalk with my Fujifilm X100S.


Unseeing

Unseeing

WALNUT CREEK PHOTOWALK: I can not UNSEE. I can not pretend to not see. So when I walk affluent areas my mind fills with the continuous thought of, “We have so much.”

Guacamole

Guacamole

So I am in Trader Joes and every avocado is hard as a rock. I need 15 to make the guacamole for an afternoon pool party and I have yet to find a single one that is even close to being ripe. I let out a frustration sigh and a woman also searching says, “Guacamole? You could always use the pre-made”. To which I responded, “Never!” and continued hunting.
