For my 800th blog post I've chosen three random images from Portugal. I just like them! This one was made in Lisbon.

The Horizon and Fortaleza Wall. Fortaleza was where Henry the Navigator set up his school of navigation in the fifteenth century. Some of Portugal's most famous explorers got their training here.

Sunset Psychology

"Allowing yourself to be captivated by a sunset may have a number of psychological benefits."          -Psychology Today This sunset photo was made many 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!

I'd trade a sunny seventy-five degree afternoon for a cool, blustery rain storm.

Ocean Beach

I was out at Ocean Beach, SF this morning testing a new lens.

I was out in the bright light at Ocean Beach, SF this morning testing a new lens.

It was bright and sunny and probably 75 degrees.

Not looking for anything special, just snapping photos of things that caught my eye.

February heatwave following the January heatwave. Oh, the lens works great!

Love the blur behind the abandoned shoe. Thanks Al!
