Coasting, with a camera in hand
The weather so far in 2012 has been remarkable — sparkling days, bright sun, and — for us photographers – some gorgeous light. Yeah, I know, we really need the rain — and I hear it’s coming next week. Let’s hope we catch up quickly!
Today, I met up with a good friend of mine over on the coast — for a morning of shooting — of the photography kind. We started at the Fitzgerald Marine Reserve and then headed south to Pigeon Point Lighthouse before heading to Pescadero and Duarte’s (DOO-arts they say!) for a great cracked Dungeness crab lunch.
I’ve come to appreciate these two-person photo shoots. As we explore a venue, we see through each other’s eyes — and see things we otherwise wouldn’t see. Try it sometime – it’s great fun!

The light this morning was beautiful — and this black and white treatment features it – click here to see a larger version! One of the great joys of living in Menlo is being able to explore our beautiful surroundings on days like today.
