Monthly Themes: February--Loving Life

The February theme was Loving Life and I can't think of a better feature than a dog with her ball. My friend Suzanne, saves old dogs from shelters and gives them a new life through her nonprofit, Retired Retrievers. Sometimes they stay in her own home and many times she finds other incredible people who take in a retired retriever so they can be loved and live in comfort for whatever time they have left. I get to have the pleasure of helping her with her Instagram account.

A few of these amazing dogs end up living with Suzanne and her very accommodating husband, and three of them are about to embark on a RV trip around the country.

I recently visited the entire family in Savannah and was able to capture a few photos of the dogs and the ruler of the house, Gonzo.

This photo is taken from the Oakland side, looking into Alameda.

And, a few outtakes showing different parts of the bridge, including the lights and lots of corners.

Monthly Themes: May--Street Photography

This month's theme is street photography, and while my selection may not seem like it fits the definition of street photography because it is not outdoors or on a street. But it does fit this definition from Eric Kim in that it's candid and it's in a public place:

I also appreciate his final point: "Definitions, shmefinitions... I recommend giving the middle finger to definitions--and not worrying about it. Who cares what people classify your type of photography to be? As long as you enjoy the photos you are taking--isn't that enough?"

This image is from a dance recital I attended recently while visiting friends whose three daughters all performed in many magical ways. This sweet moment was captured during the finale when all the dancers return back on stage to be honored for their hard work throughout the year. You can see how much the littles love the older dancers and how much they…

A Moment in Time Repeat: 3 AM

Sticking with the noir theme that goes so well with these very late/early time periods, I headed back to the Naval Base and found this nicely lite inset door.
