A photo of Packy at the Oregon Zoo. This 51 year old gentle giant sadly has active tuberculosis and is not reacting well to his treatment drug. He's the oldest male elephant in North America. Hopefully he will overcome his illness and have many, many more years of life.
On Thanksgiving morning, I set out at 6am in freezing cold temps, to my secret spot in the "Couv" (as locals call it). With a thermos full of piping-hot coffee I waited and hoped for some magnificent sunrise to take place alongside this fantastic view of Mt. Hood. This location was simply an open field, thirty feet behind some office buildings, and within ten minutes from my house. What unusual locations have you photographed from, that resulted in a fantastic exposure? Of the one-hundred and fifty shots, this combination of three exposures blended in Photomatix is my favorite.
Shadowed by the warm glow of the sunset, a man is seen admiring his limit of Razor clams just before he wades back to dry land.
Striding the open ocean, following his evening dig, a man is seen bearing for land with his collection of fifteen Siliqua patulas, otherwise known as the Pacific Razor Clam.
As the evening tide makes its way back to the horizon, visitors at Pacific Beach State Park prepare for their trek towards the coastline. Equipped with shovels, clam-guns and a strong back, people labor and sweat for their daily limit of fifteen. These meaty shellfish can be found along the Pacific West Coast from the eastern Aleutian Islands, Alaska, to Pismo Beach, California.
Someone's best friend, Rico. Photographed in the Pearl District (Portland, OR) at Tanner Springs Park.
The water was like glass at the Portland Golf Club.
Shot on a sunny day at the renowned Portland Golf Club in Oregon—perfect time to find some shade and capture some shots of my coworker Yuriy. We just finished an install for the company I design for, and were given special permission to tour this magnificent course via one of their hot-rod golf carts.
After sampling the magnificent cuisine at the House of Nanking in San Francisco, I did a little sightseeing through the Financial District and discovered this minimalistic looking apartment building with a nice sleek and contrasty facade.
Start your day off right. Think of every day as a Friday, be happy. Be thankful for what you have, and always keep smiling. Do somebody a good deed this weekend, and please share what you did in the comment section below.
Just looking at this photo, I can't help but smile and wish I was at the beach.
Such cute little feet, cradled in the hands of his Mother! After a recent family session, I had a little extra time to focus on the more mood evoking photos that I always enjoy giving to my clients.
