About My Blog

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

A charred Canyon Live Oak leaf from the CZU fire. I found

Beach Walk

September 17th, 2020  |   Comments Off on Beach Walk

Summer is Santa Cruz County, chilly fog with a touch of wind. That’s beach weather.
On South County beaches, often your only company will be other walkers, the 
odd surfer and people fishing. 
There are always treasures to be discovered.
And the feeling of being out, moving, enjoying empty beaches.

Eerie Sky

The past couple of days the sky has been dark and sinister. Yellow, orange,
red on the color spectrum. Yesterday people were driving with headlights
on at midday. At 4:00 PM it was dark. “Strange days have found us.”
