Shark's Tooth Beach, Davenport, CA - 2009

This was taken at Shark's Tooth Beach, which is on Rt. 1 (PCH) north of Santa Cruz and south of Davenport. I went there one day to take pictures and came away with quite a few of them - it's an interesting beach. The beach itself is set down in the cliffs, and it's named for the large rock in the middle of the inlet, which looks like a large shark's tooth. I don't think I have any pictures of the whole "tooth," but you might see more pictures from this day later on. I'm not sure why I like this picture, actually - it's a pretty boring rock, but I do think the picture itself is neat-looking.

I took this with my Canon AE-1 film camera, and the negative was converted to digital file by my local photo store. I haven't made any changes to the digital file.

Stay tuned for some pictures from my fourth drive across the U.S. - coming soon!

South of Lost Hills, CA - 2009

This is another picture I took on my travels to Los Angeles this past weekend. While I was driving down rt. 5 ("the 5," in local parlance, as I have been reminded by a friend), I could see the sunset in my rearview mirror and just had to get off the highway and take some pictures of it. I was somewhere south of Lost Hills, but I'm not exactly sure where. Again, this is one of the few pictures I took with my digital camera - the others are on film and will have to wait for the developing.

I took this with my Kodak Z730 digital camera, and haven't made any changes to the file. The colors are real!

Pyramid Lake, CA - 2009

This past weekend, I drove from Santa Cruz down to Los Angeles for training that I had to do. On the way back, I stopped briefly to enjoy the clouds and sun over Pyramid Lake. This is one of only four pictures I took with my digital camera of the lake - the others I took are still on film and I'll get them developed in a week or so.

I took this with my Kodak Z730 digital camera. I haven't modified the file in any way - I think it's too cool to change.
