MPC Art Gallery show
The Monterey Peninsula Art Gallery exhibition (myself and my wife) actually started on October 3rd, but the opening was on the 13th. I’m just back, and a friend took this picture of my wife’s presentation. Thought I share it.

My friend, Al Weber
Al Weber passed away Feb 27, 2016. He was my friend, although others certainly knew him better or longer. What we shared, he shared with all: his love of photography.

Charlie Cramer and Bill Atkinson at CVS (2010)
I’m the “buck stops here” guy for putting together the Creative Vision Series Talks for the ImageMakers and Center For Photographic Art. We just had a great talk by Charlie Cramer (www.charlescramer.com). Got to meet Charlie Cramer face-to- face finally, and to rehash “The Anomaly Factory” (you know who you are!) with Bill Atkinson.
