Like Bees to Honey

Here is light captured intensely.  Color concentrated exquisitely. Function created sensually.  Form rendered sculpturally.  Its perfume designed magnificently.  Its meaning conveyed emotionally.  And it’s pretty.

Signs of Life in the City

What’s the City for?  What’s business and commerce all about?  Why are the streets crowded with people movers?  Why so much signage? So many billboards?  Why so many shops, offices, restaurants and hotels?  What happens there? People relate there.  The City is built on a foundation of relationships and interactions.

City Lights

         There ought to be a law: when in the San Francisco Bay Area – carry a camera.  The area is a visual paradise, its plumage is vibrant and breath taking and its color palate rainbowonic!.  Every made image is a unique blend of City Light and the imagination.  Every snap of…

Latch Key City Kids

Curiosity is the key that unlocks the latch.  The City is a maze and is amazing.  You are a window watcher and a street walker.  You are an explorer, a time traveler and a social scientist.  You are bewildered and fascinated.  You are riding a magic carpet powered by the City’s human energy grid.

In the Wild West they named a revolver, The Peacemaker

If all of my Uranium turned into lead and my nukes were useless, I would aim my rifle.  If my guns had no ammunition, I would use a knife, sword or a lance.  If those blades were dull, I would use a bow and launch arrows at my adversary.  If my bowstring broke, I would…
