Mushroom Farm

51 percent of the mushrooms produced in the US are grown in town of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. This is one of the many farms. The sky was perfect for the mood I wanted to show in this photograph.

Transition Day

Transition day today - from Disney to the Bay Area. Random airport moments. The woman on the left asked my daughters to hold a congratulations banner for her daughter arriving on the next plane. The daughter had just gotten engaged a few days ago and the mother worked in the airport so she was able to meet her at the gate. Felt great to capture such a happy moment. Later in the day I went for a walk around Stanford Hills on a beautiful night.

Disney 2008

Misty Morning

A couple of shots from the morning of 7/31. I sometimes take slightly different routes to work looking for interesting scenery. I found a nice tree and shot it from a couple of different perspectives. The mist was really nice that particular morning .

I wasn't sure about the branch coming in from the upper right, but I think it works here.
