About this blog.

As this blog evolves I have decided to add current images on a variety of subjects. Some of these images are shot digitally and for some I continue to use traditional 35mm film. Back in the late '70s and early '80s, I photographed a lot of bands. I did album covers and publicity shots for many mainstream musicians but I loved the alternative music scene. My current subject matter includes urban environments and anything else I find visually interesting.

Jerusalem - June 2014

Jerusalem is a festival and a lamentation. Its song is a sigh across the ages, a delicate, robust, mournful psalm at the great junction of spiritual cultures.

Abbot Kinney Blvd.- Venice Beach, CA



Venice Beach is a combination of the tacky, the mindless, the ironic, and the novel.

The camera sees more than the eye, so why not make use of it?
