Sunstar

In Oakland, sometimes the stars show themselves during the day.

Christmas Angel

I harnessed some Christmas energy and experimented a bit to get this shot. When taking pictures of Christmas lights this year, I found that out of focus lights created a much more dramatic effect by making the light much larger. When I saw these holiday decorations in my neighborhood, I decided to take photos both in and out of focus. By re-focusing at different spots I was able to highlight the shape of the lights. The result is really dreamy on the edges, while at the same time pulling your attention to the angel in the center. Merry Christmas!

Spring in the Dormant Orchard

This area used to be primarily orchards. Now it is mostly offices and condos, but this orchard still exists. A recent storm passing through created great light to give contrast to the new living buds and the dormant trees.
