9_11_2003 Girl With Sign1024

Two years later

The woman on the right was protesting the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq at the World Trade Center site on 9/11/2003. The man on the left grabbed her sign from her and tore it up just before I shot this photograph. The sign had said, “Love thy neighbor / STOP WAR.”

Riding shotgun

I spotted this dog in a bicycle sidecar on Emerson outside Fraiche in Palo Alto.

Palo Alto Farmers Market (1 of 1)

At the market

I went to the farmers market in Palo Alto this morning and brought along the GF1. The naan that the Indian man is making is awesome.

Grain to the Max

Grainy on Haight

This photo had too much motion blur to look decent, so I added a lot of grain in Silver Efex to produce an acceptable result.

Olivia's Wedding

Father and daughter

My friend Olivia got married a couple years ago near San Jacinto in southern California. I flew down for a few hours to make it to the wedding and reception. I brought along my Canon EOS 20D and the 35mm f/2 lens and took a few pictures. None of them really appealed to me until recently when I decided to convert this shot to 1:1 ratio and black and white with Silver Efex Pro.
