Close to home, close to my heart










June 2010: Wolf Ridge

I went with some good friends for a foggy night hike to wolf ridge, an abandoned radar and coastal defense station. It was dark, foggy and cold, a perfect setting for night photography! A wise olllddd photographer once told me “shoot with what you’re given” so that’s what I did. I really like how gloomy and dark these images feel, and they remind me of the feeling of being in the silent, wet blanket of fog. What a way to unwind and forget about my daily struggle!

November 2010: Mare Island Part II

The second installment from this months moon also includes a few day images from The Vallejo Waterfront. While speaking with a “Dredger”, talking about the declining economy and lack of business etc (our dogs made out) I asked if I could take his photo. Just one and I like it!

( I totally forgot his name )

November 2010: Mare Island

For November’s full moon, I went to Mare Island, and some surrounding areas in Vallejo. It was raining off and on, which helps to enhance the solitude. The mist swallows up all the sounds, and gives you a chance to be alone with your thoughts. Some nights, I like to pretend what it might have been like for the people that frequented these places, but not on this night.
