November, 2020 - As Covid-19 continues to surge, I have found myself wandering nature areas staying outdoors and social distancing. There is so much wildlife around us once you take notice. Here are some images from local areas in Socal.

October, 2020 - What I love about the Bolsa Chica Wetlands, is that even when things look quiet at a glance, there are still cool things happening if you are patient. I've been taking my time and stopping in areas to wait for things to happen. Below are some images that I would have missed if I rushed through.
October, 2020 - Acquired an old Minolta 60mm f/1.2 lens online and adapted it to a Leica M mount. It's really hard to photograph moving kittens with a manual focus lens at wide apertures. So I basically had to wait them out until they were still for a moment and hope for the best. In addition, my 1983 Leica M is not the fastest camera either. However, the images that it creates are worth the trouble. I shoot the Leica in monochrome mode. So these images are out of the camera.
