What's New

(hit "refresh" to get the most recent version of this page)


  • The rest of 2014: a Mojave desert area trip; a Death Valley trip; possibly, a 3-day weekend trip to the San Francisco Bay Area; and, most likely, a Los Angeles area trip or two

  • 2015: some San Francisco Bay Area trips; and a two week trip to Oregon & Washington in summer



  • June: Utah, Idaho, Nevada & Northern California trip. I added about 2,000 photos to my website from this trip.

  • July, August, & September More Northern California stuff: Sacramento, San Jose area, San Francisco & East Bay area trips. These photos are all up now.

  • September: Los Angeles area trip. These photos are all up now.


    NEW NAME, STILL THE SAME You might have noticed in typing "" that my site is now automatically rolling over to its new name. It's still officially "" but there's now a shorter name. More appropriate since I haven't competed in agility for many years now. Typing or should get you to the home page faster. And all the old pages still have the same names -- just the different prefix. I have set up redirects for the old site name so you shouldn't bump into any dead ends if you have bookmarks or get here via hyperlinks. But if you do, please let me know! You might also notice that I have a new email account to go with this change (see the yellow bar above right).


    At the end of 2012, I moved from New York City to California. My job does not allow much time off but I am taking lots of weekend trips to take new photos for the website. For now, I am taking two-week trips once a year. I might be able to persuade the boss to permit a three-week trip eventually. But those five-week marathons that I took for many years may have to wait ten years or so until I can hopefully retire.

    I spent a good part of 2013 adding more than 10,000 photos from all over the country. Since then, I've been focusing on shooting and adding things from California (reshoots and new stuff). I'm also updating descriptions throughout my website, adding links to places that I haven't been able to shoot yet, adding maps, and tweaking things.

    A couple of accomplishments since I've been home more: I have finally licked Internet Explorer compatibility issues with my site. And the white keyword search box at the top of every page is working magnificently now. I highly recommend using it when you are looking for something specific or a particular city.
