747 At Miramar Air Show!


Late in the 2008 show which featured the U.S. Navy's famed Blue Angel Flight Demonstration Team, when people were departing, this amazing formation came roaring by. The Patriots FSD were escorting a privately owned (FRY's Electronics) Boeing 747 during several passes over the field; the 747 was as low as 30 feet above the runway at 275 knots!! One performance, one show, I'll never forget!

Nowhere To Go


I went along a back road to a garbage dump near West Hemet, and photographed this couple with their dog. They were living in an adobe shack with no electricity or water, hand to mouth. They are on the path taken before during the Great Depression.

Winter Scene


Driving along the roads is where I get some of my best shots. I may drive onto a mountain firebreak, field roads, or just the highways. Here's one.

Fighting Spirit After Hurricane Katrina

The destruction along the Mississippi coast on August 29, 2005, looks much like this picture all along the 80 mile coastline. It was simply incredible. This picture is just a couple of blocks away from the beach, near the Armed Forces Retirement Home, where I lived.
