A view along the Petaluma river

I took this shot a couple of days ago while out for a walk along the riverfront. I processed it as a “faux HDR” image–it’s just one tweaked image, not multiple images merged into one. The enhanced dynamic range of the scene is much closer to what my eye saw when I took the shot.

On stage before a gig

This past weekend our band played a gig at The Caspar Inn in Mendocino County. We arrived a few hours early so before showtime we had plenty of time to set up, check our gear, and get acquainted with the surroundings. Here’s Maggie giving her squeezebox the once-over.

Black Water Dragon

According to Chinese astrology, 2012 is the year of the Black Water Dragon. Supposedly the black water dragon symbolizes big changes. So far this year, for me, that seems to be the case. Be that as it may, my personal water dragon is a soap dispenser on the kitchen sink.
