    Salton Sea Beach-Vision of the Apocalypse

    Set in a stark and barren landscape in the deserts of Southern California the Salton Sea was created by an environmental disaster in 1905 when the Colorado River overflowed its banks and flowed across the desert and into the Salton Sink, a prehistoric lakebed. By the time the river was contained, nearly two years later, the lake covered an area of about 376 square miles. Today, another environmental disaster is killing the lake along with the dreams of those who live there.

    A Year in Plastic

    One camera . . . One week . . . One picture . . . One year... A Year in Plastic: Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2009. It seems like everyone is doing 365 projects these days (or other variations on this theme) where you shoot and edit heavily and post a carefully chosen image each day for a year. In 2009 I undertook a year-long toy camera project of my own entitled A Year in Plastic, with a slightly different twist.

    A Visit to Rosedale Cemetery, Los Angeles

    This is the oldest cemetery in Los Angeles and it is hidden in one of the busiest areas of the city. If you want a quieter alternative to karaoke and Korean BBQ, take a trip to Koreatown and wander amongst the ancient headstones of Rosedale Cemetery, established in 1884.

    Southern California

    After the rain. Here in Southern California we don't get much rain. So, every time it rains, I celebrate and dance under the rain in extreme joy. The day after, before everything clears up, is the day I go wild for clouds. I rarely see majestic clouds with ray of sunshine that feels like heaven is about to call me.
