A small collection of black and white photographs, and essays about living and wandering in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area. The author lives in San Jose and wanders around, hiking and looking for himself in the wilds that surround this urban area.
Father of two young women, lymphoma survivor, amateur musician, hiker, bay area vagabond, and software engineer. I wore out two digital cameras before going back to the basics and studying traditional film photography. Workshops with Stuart Scofield and Sam Hipkins opened my eyes to the possibilities of the craft. Kate Jordahl's marvelous Foothill College program provided the groundwork and facilities to realize my images.
