I was visiting the beautiful tiled steps of San Francisco’s 16th Avenue one day when a family that was either about to attend a wedding or just returning from one appeared. In a flash, their daughter, dressed in a fabulous pink dress, raced up the stairs squealing with glee. I was only able to get one shot off before the moment passed. It’s one of my favorite photos.

Lighthouse at Point Cabrillo, near Mendocino, CA

Bunny-at-Point-Cabrillo-Lighthouse-11-14
If you haven’t been to Mendocino and its beautiful, rugged coastline, you’re missing out on one of California’s best hidden-getaway gems. I get the yearning to visit Mendocino at least every couple of years. Below is a flyover video from my Phantom drone that will give you a sense for how special this place really is:

Fleet Week Airshow in San Francisco

There’s something special about watching military jets at airshows. The powerful rumble of jet engines flying low above your head, the sheer speed, the skill of pilots flying in graceful formation one minute and doing body-crushing aerobatics the next. It was all present on Saturday during Fleet Week in San Francisco. Sitting atop the Pier 39 garage with my Nikon Df and 70-300mm lens, shutter set at 1/1000 sec., I captured the action and enjoyed a perfect day on The Bay.

Robert Louis Stevenson State Park

I just returned from a short visit to Calistoga. Just north of town, on a rainy spring day, the Robert Louis Stevenson state park is nothing short of magical.

Zulu’s Stare

Zulu's Stare

There’s no feline more beautifully exotic than an Abyssinian. They are smarter, more playful and demanding of your attention than any other breed. If you’re ever lucky enough to be owned by an Abby, your life will be richer for it.

Mt. Diablo Burns

In northern California, fire is nature’s preferred method of renewing itself. Like clockwork, September is fire season and this year is no exception. This year it hit close to home. Here’s the view from my house — both last night and this morning — of Mt. Diablo burning just across the San Francisco Bay.

Evening view from San Francisco’s Cliff House

Evening view from San Francisco's Cliff House

One of my favorite places to take out-of-town visitors to dinner is Sutro’s at the Cliff House. Yes, the food is great. But with the restaurant perched atop the cliffs overlooking San Francisco’s Ocean Beach, the views and sunsets are unforgettable. Last night was no exception.

Watching America’s Cup races on the San Francisco Bay

This week I had an opportunity to go out onto San Francisco’s bay to watch from up-close the America’s Cup Louis Vuitton Cup finals. The Louis Vuitton Cup finals are a competition to determine which boat will sail against the defending champion Oracle USA team for the 2013 America’s Cup. This finals competition is between Italy’s Luna Rossa and the Emirates New Zealand teams. New Zealand is the clear winner with a substantially faster boat. But watching these works of art and technological prowess race across the beautiful San Francisco Bay is breathtaking.
