mike and cara



I actually had my camera set up to shoot mike and cara a couple of weeks ago. I think this is my favourite of their pictures. they are an awesome couple with such interesting lives and I am always fascinated by their stories.
mike has an incredible history in the music indusrtry and cara leads in frank gehry's studio, the architect responsible for the Disney Concert Hall in downtown LA.
it was a great night except that I had to wait till after using the view camera before i had a drink. one thing is for sure and thats booze and view cameras don't mix.

roots




when I was up in Merced last month I photographed this fellow who had chopped down a tree in his front yard and at this point was struggling with the roots. it seemed to me that he had more of a task that he bargained for, but it turned out that he was fairly relaxed about the depth of his roots.
