Posted by curt on January 9, 2019 in Photography | No Comments

I am pleased to announce that I have an exhibit of photographs on display in the lobby of the Saratoga Public Library. It’s my hometown library, so I’m happy to be there! I originally submitted an application over two years ago, but the demand was such that I was scheduled two years in advance. Well, […]

Raccoon

Posted by curt on November 13, 2018 in Photography | No Comments

This is a raccoon footprint preserved in dried mud in a salt flat here in the Bay Area. Over the last year and a half, I’ve gotten interested in animal tracking. Not trailing animals, attempting to follow or find them, but identifying their tracks and types of movement. It has opened up an additional vista […]

Fall Color

I actually made this photograph a couple of years ago while I was shooting railroad images at the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad in New Mexico. These trees were growing on a hillside next to the highway. I thought it was interesting how they grew straight up from such a steep embankment.

The Church at Davenport

Posted by curt on October 26, 2018 in I Live Here, Photography | No Comments

St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church in Davenport, California. It was built in 1915 entirely out of cement from the nearby cement plant. I have always liked the look of this small church and I often stop by when driving up the coast from Santa Cruz.

I went for a “sightseeing” tour around town with the wife today. I only take her to the best places, as you can see. 🙂

Here are some some photos I took of the Zawinul Legacy Band. The Zawinul Legacy Band Hadrien Feraud Katisse Buckingham Robert Thomas, Jr. […]

Last weekend I attended Charles Cramer’s Digital Printing for the Fine Art Photographer workshop. (That’s Charlie pictured above, about to take a look at one of my test prints.) It’s something I’ve wanted to do for years, and I’m glad that I did. I had a great time and came back energized to take my […]

The 139th Running of the Kentucky Derby

Posted by curt on May 7, 2013 in Photography | No Comments

I was lucky enough to attend the Kentucky Derby for the seventh time as part of the Sports Illustrated crew. Here are 15 or so from this year’s trip. I don’t have any of the race itself because it was doing work for SI at the time. A scene from “the backside,” where the barns […]

Babe

Babe the Muffler Man stands watch at Babe’s Mufflers on The Alameda in San Jose. Supposedly he’s been there since at least 1960, but the leading authority on muffler men claims the first one was made in about 1962. It was a Paul Bunyan character. The hands were arranged to hold his axe, but the […]

Weather Report

Posted by curt on January 11, 2013 in Music | No Comments

If you know me well, you know that one of my passions is the band Weather Report. In fact, my sister is quite fond of reminding me of what an inconsiderate teenager I was blasting their music out of my bedroom. Some years ago I created a website I called the
