    Here are a few images from a little trip that my daughter and I took yesterday to San Fran and then parts north up the coast on Hwy 1. And by 'little trip' I mean it ended up taking all day after several adventures and then ended up (well, with a two hour drive still ahead of us) in an Emergency room due to me being attacked by a wild animal. And by 'attacked by a wild animal' I mean I was bitten by a tick and the bite got infected. :)

    Ahhhh...the joys of the outdoors.

    All photos shot with the NEX 7 and Speedbooster using a lens that Im coming to believe is a Distagon in disguise, the Yashica ML 28/2.8. Hope you enjoy.

    That first one (tiny dancer) belongs on one of your walls for sure. What a capture!

    Those are very kind words Nick, thank you. I agree the surfer photo is a bit gruesome. :)

    I added a few more photos from this trip to flickr, so I thought I would update the thread. I waited to add these since, although they are pleasing photos to me, they are very similar to some of the others.

    All of these are really terrific. They are similar themes, but I especially like the first in each set. Very inspiring.

    Thank you very much Jazzer, I appreciate your comment. I am quite fond of the first photo above. I really feel that I managed to capture the dream like imagery I so often strive for. It is quite elusive.

    Haha, thanks Yves. I was surprised I managed to capture that one with the cracker on its end. :)
