Went up to Alameda, California a few days ago to visit some old haunts and haunted old places. A lot of changes in the 40+ years since I lived there, but so much is still familiar too; like the Dairy Queen we used to hang out at. Still there. The old naval air station ain’t what it once was (no Myth Busters on this day either), but at least now I don’t have the Shore Police chasing me down for taking pictures.

And these two pelicans. I could swear they are the same ones I last saw there when I was in high school.

I’ll shoot anything that catches my eye, but I love it when somebody says “I never looked at it that way before” or even just a little “ooooh”. If I can make you stop and say “hmm”, that’s the best. I normally use minimal processing; a little bump in color and/or contrast, maybe a little cropping. But sometimes I just can’t resist the urge to play with an image.
