virginia city, nevada music and slide show

I took these photos late May, 2008. If you look closely at some of the photos you will see snowflakes ... not too surprising since the elevation of Virginia City is 6200 feet!

I remembered the Bonanza TV show and always liked the Bonanza theme. If you wish
to listen to the music just hit start on the music player.





Stop and read as you pass by,
As you are now, Once was I,
As I am now, You will be,
Prepare for death and follow me. -Anonymous

car eyes

I took these photos at a recent antique car show in Oroville, CA. There were literally hundreds of old antique cars. The oldest one I saw was a 1919 Ford Coupe. After a while it seemed as if the headlights were staring back at me, hence the title Car Eyes.

Enjoy the slide show with some great cruising music by Chuck Berry, including Maybelline and No Particular Place to Go.

BBC Interview of Ansel Adams

This is a four part interview by the BBC of Ansel Adams in 1983 ... a year before his death. It has terrific insights into the mind of perhaps the greatest photographer of the twentieth century.

whitewater and vivaldi

I took these photos near Reno, Nevada in April '08. Lots of white water from the fast moving Truckee River.

If you would like to listen to Vivaldi's Four Seasons while watching the slide show just click on the ipod.

Birds in Flight

I found these photos of birds in flight by Bernard Zee just extraordinary ... I highly recommend them.

He also has some amazing photos from last year's San Francisco Fleet Week. One terrific shot shows a jet flying underneath the golden gate bridge.
