I went to the Salton Sea this morning with Mike Uriell and Charlotte Cannor and the timing was great. Arrived just as the sun was coming up. It was cold, about 37 degrees but warmed up quickly to…

WONDERFUL MORING BEACH WALK

The weather was perfect, warm and no wind to speak about. No one at the beach either. Two lonely surfers trying to ride very small low tide waves. As the tide retreated the ocean left a lot of trash on the beach. I guess I should say people left trash and the ocean...

TESTING THE H38 AND P65

Today I put the PhaseOne P65 digital back on my Hasselblad 903 SWC Superwide camera in an old (1994) Peterson////Gates H38 housing that Elwyn Gates and I developed for Hasselbald. With the disappearance of film as a popular exposure medium I decided to modify the...

BEACH MORNING

Great weather this morning, cool but very clear. The waves were small but the dolphins and one sea lion were having fun riding the waves. A few surfers were out but the dolphins were getting the better waves.
