Lexington, MA: Exhibit update and New images

One month ago, I returned to the National Heritage Museum in Lexington for a second artist lecture. I’d like to thank the almost 200 attendees who came although the weather outside was great this day. The event was initially going to coincide with the closing of “Treasured Lands”. However the museum has decided to extend […]

Are nature landscape photographs superficial idealizations ?

As many of my readers know, the exhibit Treasured Lands, currently at the National Heritage Museum, consists of natural, awe-inspiring National Parks landscapes big and small, mostly untouched by man. I have began to post those images to my new Facebook page, in the same sequence, and with the same comments as in the exhibit. […]

A fun afternoon in San Francisco

On Saturday, I took a break from my work on Yosemite (more on it latter). I first headed to 49 Geary, a building near Union Square, where several floors are occupied by world class art galleries, giving you the opportunity to see a variety of art in a single location. The main draw of the […]

Images of India on exhibit at Balboa Theater, SF

Tired of seeing images of the US National Parks ? Ten of my images from India are on display in the lobby of the Balboa Theater, in the Richmond District of San Francisco, until early March. It is clearly not possible to portray a multi-religious, multi-lingual, multi-ethic, and multi-cultural country of over one billion people […]

A day of diving in the Channel Islands

This past Saturday, I dived one of the most beautiful sites I had seen. Although I had done three trips to the California Channel Islands before, I had never gotten into the water there. Part of the reason was that, being used to diving in warm waters, my only diving experiences in California, near Monterey, […]
