Here is a photo of a sunset that I took of one evening in one April during the time when I took a photography class. I haven’t shared it until now. Hope you all of you like this photo.
Here are two videos of a duck that swam to the shore that’s on my families property on a lake near Lake Tahoe. The duck seemed to expecting food and this took place on a late September evening in 2014 before colder weather had settled in for the season.
I took these photographs of the moon late at night on the night on (or before) of the Summer Solstice (June 20, 2016). It took a bit of time to adjust some settings of my camera to able to capture a clear series of photographs of the moon. It was one of those times I had one of those “Ah Ha” moments when I discovered how to do something different and its like bringing two puzzle pieces together.
For the longest time I wanted to take clear photographs of the Moon and I finally did. Now I know how which setting and dials on the camera to change to do this I’m going to try to capture other phases of the Moon.
In the past when I took photos at night there was enough light from street/parking lights that I didn’t need to change it before. I wasn’t able to photograph the moon when it was rising above the horizon.
Here is another video I did in the Sierra Nevada’s in Fall 2014.
Here is a 30 second video that I did on September 10, 2014 at dusk. I’m looking west from a dock and you could barely see lights on the west side of the lake. I had one of my dogs with me and you could hear them shake in the background of the short video. There’s a little light coming from behind the mountain.
I took these photos at the Japanese American Historical Park with some Flowering Cherry Trees and in the background and across the Willamette River in the Convention Center and Moda Center; along with the Steel Bridge. One of the photos is a little part of the east bank of the Willamette River and there is a part of Interstate 5 that runs on the east side of Portland. There is a map below the photographs of where I took these.
The photograph below I took a few moments after the photo in the last post. In this photograph that I took with a Samsung phone – I’m looking towards the North – Northeast end of the lake.
Below is a photograph of a sunset that took one evening on Fallen Leaf Lake back in mid-October 2014 and I took it with my Samsung phone that I had at that time. It was looking towards the Northwest corner of the lake.
This video is now hosted on Vimeo instead of YouTube because I wanted to try Vimeo for sometime. The video below filmed in October 2014 when I was staying near South Lake Tahoe last year. I might move all of my videos to Vimeo but I’m sure I will yet.

Here are some photographs that I took with my iPad on my way up to Oregon from Arizona. I managed a way to get to school and since I didn’t have my Canon Camera with me to take photographs the “next” best thing to do – is to take a couple of photographs with my iPad.
Granted these aren’t of the best quality of photographs which is kind of expected with a 1 and 1/2 old iPad.
These were between Paso Robles, CA and Salinas, CA except for the body of water in the gallery. Think I took the photograph in Oregon but not sure.
The Amtrak line that took these photos were on the Coast Starlight.

Here is some photographs of an old fire pit at my families place at South Lake Tahoe. Used to use this fire pit up to the mid 1980’s.
I swept away the top layer of pine needles to expose the old fire pit so I could take a photo of it from different angles. The fire pit hasn’t been used in over 30 years. As far as I know there’s no plans to use it ever again – giving the fire danger of the region.
Though, what I would like to do with it is to “dress it up” with benches and a table in the middle that would re-purpose the spot to eat outdoors.
There are a lot of things that I want to do with the place that I stayed at last year and it come’s down to money and time (another post for another time).
Here is a pair of videos that I’ve made while I was at Fallen Leaf Lake, CA. It’s of one Duck that came onto the beach that I was at and next to one of the docks at the property that I was staying at last fall.
These videos were taken at the beginning of September 2014.
Here is a second part video that I took of a duck:
