The resident kitty

Took this picture of my roommates cat today. The cat was snoring and it was kind of adorable. Originally I was going to post with the phrase “Black and White”. But I wanted more from this image, so I started playing around with it. Here’s the original and then my take on it. I’ve posted this to http://www.society6.com/azurecricket where it comes on a variety of products, even rugs.

Berkeley Skies

The first photo is from a couple days ago. The 2nd one is from tonight. I was walking from my studio to an art show in the rain. It was pleasant, the sound of rain on leaves, the smell and walking by lush yards. What I’m loving about Berkeley is that the trees are taller than the buildings.

Panoramas of SF from Tank Hill

About a week ago I was up at Tank Hill above SF where I took these photos. It’s a great place to go because you can see to the beach, the Golden Gate Bridge and to downtown. I was experimenting with the panorama camera on the iPhone. Then we went by the Twin Peaks area where I saw this reservoir that I didn’t even know was there. Hope you enjoy these.

Back to Sketch

I haven’t been to my sketch group for a couple months because of moving my home and art studio to Berkeley. I always wonder, can I still do this after being gone for awhile? Three out of five drawings came out alright. I’m hoping to be there more regularly now.

The coolest 99¢ store

So I’ve walked by this store several times in Berkeley and from the outside it looks like boring modern construction. This time I went inside, walked around and it looked like every discount store you’d ever seen until I looked up. The remains of an old theater are still there, even a balcony. I love seeing old decorative painting and plaster work. I can only imagine what this used to be like back in the day.

Sutro Tower

Found myself up by Sutro Tower today, the fog was coming in and I was shooting into the sun. Didn’t think these would turn out at all but here you go. Different filters for different effects.
