Old and new by the river

I’m rethinking this blog and that’s why I’m posting less. But I’m still taking pictures and experimenting with post processing techniques. These two shots, taken at First Street in Petaluma during a late afternoon, are treated with a tweaked to my own taste “300 Look” preset from Matt at Lightroom Killer Tips.

Homage to my old boots

We completely cleaned out our garage a couple of weeks ago to make space for a video shoot of our band. Tucked away amidst the years of accumulated clutter were my old Santa Rosa Brand work/hiking boots. I’m pretty sure I bought them in the very early 80s, and I obviously put a whole lot of miles on them before they were retired to the garage. Now, they just look cool.

I couldn’t resist a little pastoral treatment for the old waffle stompers.

Professional leprechaun

I had a crazy busy weekend of band gigs. On Saturday, before we started our first set, I had a few minutes to grab some shots. This one is of “Authentic Leprechaun” Anthony doing his thing. Nice guy, and apparently in demand for St. Patrick’s Day gigs. Not long after this shot was taken he was off to perform at another event.
