Here you can find work in progress, Holga photos, travel photos, snaps from around town and, occasionally, ones from the file boxes that have never found a spot to call home. The nice thing about a blog is that I can show you new work in a less formal fashion than on my web page. I post on a regular basis, so check back. You can follow me on Instagram @ jonnycakes7
I made this one twenty years ago! The Boardwalk, still one of my favorite places to photograph!
Road trip lunch break a few years ago. I recently printed and hand colored the photo.
“Allowing yourself to be captivated by a sunset may have a number of psychological benefits.”
This sunset photo was made years ago on color slide film. I waited and waited and finally photographed from the railroad trestle above the mighty San Lorenzo River. I scanned the slide and did a minimal amount of adjusting in Photoshop. Basically what you see is how it looked. Sunsets are cliche for photographers. This one is a special cliche!
Exuberant, filled with or characterized by a lively energy and excitement.
An exuberant crew!
On the other hand….
Backgammon on Beach Street. This I’ve never seen before!
Nostalgia is a wistful desire to return in thought or in fact to a former time.
I took these photos a month or so ago after a bit of rain.
I’d trade a sunny seventy-five degree afternoon for a cool, blustery rain storm any day!
Slowly crossing the railroad trestle.
He asked me to take his photo. It worked out well!
Friday wandering….Jordan and Kathryn….

If you like black and white photography and compelling stories, Ida is a movie you must see. The camera lingers on people and scenes, creating the impression of viewing photographs in a gallery. Plenty of time to contemplate and appreciate the images. Check it out!
