Uncle John

I was looking back at all the photos that I’ve posted and realized most of them are kind of boring! Meaning there isn’t a lot of action in them. So I decided to branch outside of my “pretty flowers” rut I was stuck in. In case you were thinking I could only suck at one type of photography… Hey, but do you know what’s interesting though? That’s ME water skiing.. AND I took the picture. WRAP YOUR BRAIN AROUND THAT! How you ask? Well I started by setting up a steel mounted tripod onto the back of the ski boat and added a wired triggering responder to my camera that was wrapped around the ski rope. Each time I took a turn I pressed the button and it remotely took the picture… AND I was driving the boat at the same time… and I can fly. Okay I’m lying. That’s my wife’s uncle. This was during our yearly vacation to Lake Powell. I love Lake Powell, it is such a beautiful place. This might sound weird but you’re so isolated there it’s depressing. If you have the option of visiting I highly recommend it. It’s wonderful. Nothing like playing around on the lake and listeing to music… and taking pictures of course. Speaking of music, I was editing this picture and listening to a sweet song I think you all would like. (seriously, have I led you a stray yet? I submit to you that I have NOT!) The song is West Indian Girl – To Die In L.A. It’s a wonderful song. Give it a listen. Go ahead!

Ladies and Gentlemen you voted and here they are. I thought it was going to be a 3 way tie!

The Octopus and Drums- I’ve had some people ask me where this was at. It was taken in the First Ferry Building in Downtown San Francisco. It’s a major building that houses farmer markets each weekend. It’s right on the Embarcadero.



  1. I am disappointed that there are no pictures of your baby in this post. But, the pictures you did put ARE pretty rad.
