I do intend to finish my trip journal at some point… and I also plan to get through my trip pics… somehow. All 36 GB of them. I will. Honest. Anyway, in the meantime, I had the privilege last Saturday of going down to Old Sac to meet up with a former student (he’s attending [...]
My post title is from a Paul Simon song that I’ve liked for years… it somehow seemed to fit for my coworker’s lovely daughter, whom I was privileged to be able to take pictures of a couple of weeks ago. Kristin, she’s beautiful. :-) . . . .
[By the way, yes, I know this post broke the main page of my blog. I have no idea what's wrong, and this has been an ongoing problem, but I'm trying to get a ninja to help me out with it. Grrrrr.] Here are the last of the pictures from Thursday’s photo shoot — the [...]
Holly is a friend of mine from… well, it’s kind of a long story, but she grew up in Davis (just outside of Sacramento) and went to Cal Poly at about the same time as me, and now she and her husband live just outside of London. Anyway, last summer she and her husband generously [...]
I love taking pictures of people’s kids, and it’s been a privilege to take pictures of my coworker Laura’s granddaughters several times over the past year.

Pic from today. I call it “mistake with fill flash.”, originally uploaded by Kari_Marie. I’ve got a great flash–Canon Speedlite 430ex. The problem lies in the fact that I really don’t know how to use it. I can muddle through the settings well enough when I have time, but when I’m in a pressured situation [...]
So on Saturday we were just pulling into the small town where we were going to stop for lunch, when out the van window I saw these lovely young ladies clowning around on a wall outside a school. Our van stopped about 1/4 mile past where they were, and I grabbed my camera and bolted [...]
A couple of things of note: 1.) I actually wrote this post last week, but it broke my website, so I took it down. Well, it didn’t really break my website, but it broke the HTML, and everything was displaying all wonky. So I spent two hours beating my head against the wall and getting [...]
