Three Photos For Exhibit

Three of my photographs have been accepted by the Buenaventura Art Associate for display this summer in the halls of Ventura Community Memorial Hospital.

I was just going for lunch!

I was just going for lunch!

I decided after several days of overcast and gray skies, that I could not let a day with sunshine go by.  Even if the winds were suppose to be up.  So, with a sandwich and chips in hand I headed out for a lunch on the water.

The water wasn’t too bad so why not go out a ways for lunch.  Well, why not go on out past the second oil platform where I often find dolphins.   NOTHING!  Float around and eat lunch then decided even though the ocean was getting rough, that I liked the way I saw waves crashing on Santa Cruz Island.


I was starting to get 8 – 10 foot seas and in the Zodiac wasn’t concerned about safety — just a rough ride home.  I was 20 miles away.  Time to head home.   But, wait.  NO WAY.  Whales are out of season and should all be gone!   I found myself in the middle of four active humpback whales.  Check out the photo album here and Richard’s Photographs for more images.

Photo Site Re-Vamped

I have reworked my photo’s site making it simpler to view.  The site is designed and programmed by myself using PHP.  Behind the scenes is where it shines, but unfortunately no one sees that.  I have taken the time to write routines that makes posting new images and all the assorted requirements as simple as just uploading the image.
