1951 Mercury Lead Sled

Customized classic car with violet paint.
The classic Mercury automobiles have been a favorite subject of car customizers since the 1940s. This incredible chopped and channeled Mercury coupe demonstrated why. The eye-catching metallic purple paint matched the blooming Jacaranda trees in the background, which made a nice shot! Photographed at the 2016 Culver City Car Show.

Aloe Vera Flowers

Three flower clusters of the Aloe Vera plant.
The intriguing flowers of this Aloe Vera Plant called out to me to take their picture. Aloe is a garden favorite due to its exotic looks, and is particularly striking when the flowers are blooming. Photographed with my iPhone.

Kawarau Peak

Spectacular mountain peak with fall colors.
This dramatic summit overlooks the Kawarau River, near Queenstown in New Zealand's southern island. The area is popular with adventure seekers; offering bungy jumping, jet boating, white water rafting, and of course great scenery. Photographed in 2005.

1963 Corvette Stingray

A rear view of a silver 1963 Corvette at a car show.
This magnificent 1963 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray split-window coupe was displayed at the Rodeo Drive "Highways to Heaven" auto show in downtown Beverly Hills. The car was the first incarnation of the legendary C2 styling, known as one of the finest body designs in automotive history. It's my dream car! Photographed in 2015 with a Fujichrome H3 camera.

Cataract Trail Falls

Once upon a time I hiked the enchanted Cataract Trail, located on Mount Tamalpais in Northern California. There I witnessed numerous waterfalls in the midst of a lush, intensely green rainforest. Photographed on Kodachrome film in 1993.

The Green Hornet and Kato

TV heroes the Green Hornet and Kato pose in front of the Black Beauty car.
Like a flashback to 1966, these guys looked almost exactly like Van Williams and Bruce Lee from the iconic television show. Behind them is the Black Beauty car, customized by Dean Jeffries. Photographed at the Culver City Car Show on film with my Nimslo quadra lens camera in 2010.

Bryce Canyon Pinnacle

This view was from deep within the ravine of Bryce Canyon National Park. My camera was outfitted with a circular polarizing filter, which deepened the sky. Photographed in 1992 on Kodachrome film.

Topiary Dinosaur

The 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica, California is a popular destination for both the locals and tourists. Throughout the walkway are numerous living dinosaur sculptures, which look like giant Chia Pets! Photographed in 2015.

Sacred Bamboo

Vivid red and green leaves of the Heavenly Bamboo plant.
The brightly colored leaves and intense red berries of this Nandina plant, aka Heavenly Bamboo, provided a vibrant complementary color scheme for this photo. Native to eastern Asia, the plant is actually an evergreen shrub and not a bamboo at all. Photographed with my iPhone.
