Happy young men mugging for me on their bikes at The Shoppes, Chino Hills, California.  This is what you call  a suburban biker gang in these parts.

Seen It All

Street Life

Nikon D7000 18-200mm @ 70mm ISO 1600 1/30 f/11 Lr4, SnapArt3; PsCS5

A mature couple taking in the scene of shoppers passing through, children frolicking in a water fountain and families enjoying a band concert at The Shoppes, Chino Hills, California.  I’m not sure if this would not have been better rendered as a straight black and white image, but I thought the added paint like texture and brush strokes with this oil paint treatment better suited the subjects and the feeling of having withstood the tests of time this couple gave me.  What do you think?

Seen on Myrtle Avenue in Monrovia, California.  Is he moving?  Going camping? Hoarding? A Boy Scout (Be Prepared)?  He does seem to be patriotic.


Keeping The Lights On

Shop Windows

Nikon D7000 10-24mm @ 15mm ISO 1250 3-bkts f/16 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

What could be better than sitting at home in front of the television than going out to experience life in the real world.  Anticipating that moment when the man in the candy store window loses his balance and comes crashing out on to the sidewalk.  It beats watching paint dry.


Tucking In To An Early Supper

Nikon D7000 1-24mm @ 24mm ISO 800 3-bkts f/20 Lr3, HEP1, TpzSim; PsCS5

A spring evening just off of South Lake Avenue in Pasadena, California and four compatible souls tuck in to a quiet supper under a clear sky.  The interloping photographer unnoticed.
