Knott's Berry Farm

Knott's Berry Farm skyline. I used to work on the tower to the left with the flag on top.

Belgian Horses

We saw these beautiful Belgian horses at an archery event we went to. I knew they'd go right by my arrow booth, so I waited to snap the photo. Everyone else was chasing them down to get a good shot, but I'm happy with mine.

Merry-Go-Round at Fashion Island in Newport Beach CA.

Surely Merry-Go-Rounds are one of the most amazing things to take photos of, whether you have children or not. I wonder how many Merry-Go-Rounds are in California. I know there is at least one at Disneyland, Magic Mountain and Griffith Park. There used to be a carousel at a mall in Torrance but I have no idea if it's still there. I always wanted to carve my own carousel horse.

Coffee Pot

I fell in love with this coffee pot at one of our archery events.

Make Time For Fun

Here is my lovely daughter painting faces on the pier in Pismo Beach.

What is Magical Randomness?

I don't think there are any accidents, but rather the universe bedazzles us with things we need to ponder to continue evolving. So when you run across things, especially when they start appearing over and over again, you can take a pause and ask yourself what that image symbolically represents to you. Let those things filter into your subconsious mind and help you find your way through the maze we call life.

Seeing horses everywhere? The horse rune was a symbol for wealth and travel. Seeing hawks everywhere? Hawks are a symbol of higher spiritual matters and clairvoyance.

Hopefully my random photo blog will add to the metaphors of your existance. Why did you come to my blog today? Is the photo here particularly meaningful to you? If so, why?

First Post

I first officially studied photography in college in the 1970's. Back then I used an SLR and developed my own black and white film. Fast forward 30 years and the age of digital cameras is upon us. I love not having to take my film in to get developed. I love being able to take a million photos if I want to and not have to pay a penny for developing. So I dedicate this blog to showcase some of the random photos I've taken over the fifteen years or so I've been on the Internet.

I'm happy to report my oldest daughter has taken up wedding photography. My father did photography too, as well as my father-in-law. So now that's three generations of photograhers.
