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

Plein Air in Washington Square.

Washington Square Park is a great place to put your tired feet up and people watch. Locals, tourists, artists, musicians, kids on bikes doing wheelies all sorts congregate here. Keely was working on a watercolor that caught my eye. Thanks Keely!

I’m just back from ten days in NYC. Here’s one that caught my eye. He was zooming by on an electric bike. The photo happened quickly. I just turned and panned along with him. No time to frame or focus. It reflects the moment and biking on Broadway!

The poster blowing in the wind, the tic-tac-toe graphic and the black and white tones caught my eye, Oakland, CA.

Yesterday morning we had some picturesque fog in town.

The steelhead survey people were counting fish in the not-so-mighty San Lorenzo River.

Terns were making noise and flying about wildly. It was a good morning to be out with a daypack full of Holgas!

Alice and I took a new Wilder Ranch walk this morning.

We walked in fog and sunshine, redwood forest and chaparral. We saw deer, red-tailed hawks and turkeys. 

A dark tunnel under Highway 1 was our portal in and out. Fun!
