Los Cabos, Baja Sur California

I fell in love in Los Cabos…with the people, the ambiance, the food and the place. At the end of May 2009, I went to Los Cabos for 4 days. I stayed in a lovely casita at the Marqus Los Cabos.

The Urban Landscape…from the TopDawg’s point of view

Some cities can bring out the best and the worst in people. Seattle is a such a city. When the sun comes out, people on the street smile more. When the sun goes away, there are not so many people out on the streets and they are usually not smiling.

Seattle, An Urbanite’s City!

We are so urban in this city that if it snows, we cease business. We cease going out of our homes for groceries, booze or dates. We curl up in our houses or apartments and become cabin-feverish. We basically do not know how to drive on snow…and our city does not know how to deal with snow.

Vision & Mission: 2019

While my mission statement is centered around the process of what I need to be doing, my vision statement is the end result of what I will have done. It is the picture of how the landscape will look after I have been through it. The Vision statement is the force that will sustain me when my Mission statement seems too heavy to endue, enforce or engage. I share with you, the viewer, my vision and my mission.

Kitchen in the only single-family house we owned

The title says it all…..the house hated us and our renovations even though it was a “fixer-upper” and that is why we bought it. 

Photographing A Wedding

I “did” a wedding in September. It was my first photographic shoot of a wedding. I tend to shoot in a photojournalism style, liking to be on the edge of the action and shooting with a long lense. I just put together a proof album for the newlyweds to take with them to their family outings at Thanksgiving. It has turned into a 121-photo story of their wedding day. The more I looked at the photographs, the more I “saw” the story unfold. In some ways I saw it better while putting together the album than I did during the actual event. While it actually occurred in a small town, and is not an event on the streets of the Urban Landscape, it is a pivotal point for my photographic journeys.
