Mini Cheeseburger

The mini cheeseburger hors d'oeuvres were popular at a Corbis cocktail party in Richmond in early June. They reminded some of us of late night mini burgers at White Tower drive-ins some years ago.... minus the bamboo skewers.

Virginia Beach Convention Center Escalators

Still testing. This is the comparative frame from 39 Mpix. Virginia Beach Convention Center, Virginia Beach, VA

Provencal Bread Dippers

This image is from this morning's test comparing the Hasselblad/Imacon 132c digital back to a new 39CFH back to see the difference between 22 and 39 megapixels. I'm doing a variety of food, architecture, people and whatever else I can in four test days. I like these bottles of Provencal Fancy Bread Dippers from Sassafras Enterprises; they're olive oil infused the natural essence of rosemary, garlic, chili pepper or basil.

Try saying that with your mouth full.

Anemone; Yamagiri Maru

This anemonefish and host anemone are on the sunken Yamagiri Maru in Truk Lagoon off the island of Chuuk, Micronesia. I like the soft pastel colors.

Red Rubber Cap Revisited

We did the red rubber cap image in early June, but now we've created a cross-processed version and like it just as much as the original.

Water Surface

The wet cyc has 11 percent gray walls and bottom which makes a neutral background underwater. Above water in the sunlight, it takes on a totally different look. I tossed a flower in for contrast.

Food Underwater - Red Truck Wine


I have some ideas about photo illustrations of food in the underwater setting and started testing with a bottle of Red Truck wine. My neighbors, Herb and Jill, will be glad to see the bottle going to a good cause. We're about 8' underwater with the bottle on a grecian column looking up at the surface with the mansion/chateau in the background. Where are we going from here? Stay tuned.

Virginia Beach Convention Center

Experimenting at dusk and checking some angles. It was raining hard enough to have the Hasselblad and digital back under an umbrella, but not hard enough to get the street glistening/reflective wet. For a production version, we would get a water truck since it would be unlikely to get a colored sky and rain on the same day. To get the picture I have in mind, must sometimes watch the weather for days or weeks. Impressive building.

SUV Back Window

I just liked these, dirty windows and all. The credit line on the right sticker said "Copyight 1982 Jerry Garcia Estate."

Earth, Wined and Fire

Catch 31 at Virginia Beach is a fine place to have a glass of wine outdoors by the open fire under the palm trees. Lots of people enjoying themselves, romance, sometimes a live band in the park and the ocean is a stone's throw away.

Mimicking Painted Walls

A long-term personal project is photographing people mimicking people on painted walls.

The woman under the shower wall was behind the Scuba Shack dive shop in Cozumel, Mexico. Young Amy came from the hotel pool across the street and had a similar bikini (serendipity).

The surfer girl with the woody (station wagon) is on the street wall of the Corner 24 Surf Shop in Virginia Beach, VA (24th Street & Pacific Avenue). The live person is my assistant, Christina.

Redskins Fan


BC-F, a local ad agency, orchestrated a Virginia Beach tourism event called the "Redskin Beach Blitz." It started today at the oceanfront and continues for a week. Walking around, I was amazed to see the fervor of adults and children with things "Redskins."

Red Rubber Cap


We were helping Liz, a model friend (principal model in TUSA Dive In Color campaign) get some images together today for her web site. When that was done, we put a red rubber hat and goggles on her. Red, black, skin and lipstick. Don't you just love it?
