One of the most distinctive features of the Laguna Beach coastline is the "Pirate Tower" which is located on Victoria Beach. The tower was built in 1926 for the family of William E. Brown, a state senator representing California's 37th district.

Brown sold the property in the 1940s to a retired Naval officer from Los Angeles named Harold Kendrick. It was then that the building took on a pirate-related mystique. Kendrick was known for dressing himself up as a seafaring plunderer and hiding coins in the tower's many crevices. Neighborhood kids would scour the staircase for hidden treasure, and what they found, they were allowed to keep.

Victoria Beach is easily one of my favorite spots to shoot in Orange County. On this particular evening, Tom and I had only been shooting for about 20 minutes when the sky really began to light up and we knew we had chosen a good night to make the trip down there. As you can see from my photo stream, I've been down there to shoot several times, but I think this might have been the best sunset I've seen at Victoria thus far.

Please feel free to find me at some of the links below and I'll try to follow you back! Thanks for your views, comments and faves!

Doing a fly-by tonite, really missing my Flickr time but am in the midst of a frenzy of last minute prep for my trip... Getting there, have most of my gear in hand or on the way.

This was from my holiday trip down to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It was persistently overcast and rainy for most of my 5 days, and so I found myself resorting to an old favorite technique, intentional camera movement. Always enjoy the way it depicts only the fundamentals of a scene - pattern, shape, color. I was digging the beautifully subtle colors of winter on this trip, and so here is all that wrapped up into a neat little color palette...

Stay well!

OK, Flickr friends. This is WAAAYYYY out of my comfort zone...

I've been gone for a while and so I am hopelessly behind with everyone, been scurrying around making arrangements for my Antarctica trip next month. Here is one thing I have been working on.

In an effort to fund needed purchases for a successful trip to Antarctica, I have launched a Kickstarter campaign. There's even an awkward, nerdy video of me out there for you to laugh at and make fun of ;) Have a look, read the story and ask me questions if you'd like, and please consider donating. As a thank you, I am offering signed fine art prints of the Antarctic landscape and more. My campaign runs through January 21st!

I appreciate your friendship here on Flickr, whether or not you can donate. I hope everyone has a very happy holiday season, and a remarkable 2015!!
