High Hand to Hand

An acrobat holds a handstanding man high up in the air

This impressive acrobatic move was performed by Mark Daniel and Ben Averill, while Steve Clark observes. These guys have been my friends since high school, and were gymnastics coaches at the time. Photographed in 1980 at the Madison, Wisconsin capitol building grounds, with an Argus C3 camera, on Kodachrome film.

Maiden and Warrior

A maiden and warrior in a Renaissance Fair setting

I attended the Renaissance Pleasure Faire of Southern California in 1988, and enjoyed all the fantastic cosplay.

Venice Canals

Waterfront canal houses

The Venice Canals of Southern California were originally inspired by the famous canals in Italy. Created in 1905, they were once very extensive, but now only a small section remains. I was working at a visual effects studio in Venice, and would often take walks along the wonderful canals during lunch time. I captured this shot with the best camera, a.k.a. the one I had with me, my trusty iPhone.
