    The head of the school board when I was in HS long ago. It's flawed in so many ways, but it has a quirkiness I've always liked.

    Nice work! I am partial to environmental portraits. You encounter the subject(s) in their living space, doing something typical. The posed studio setting does not bring anything to the viewer's appraisal, unless the photographer provides a prop. That was the 19th Century way of doing things. Today, with very sensitive cameras, you can skip phony lighting and the former requirement to sit still and grab a realistic slice of life in a fraction of a second. Here's a photo I took of an entertainer John Nadro and my 80-year-old friend DSC03483.JPG Ofelia Osi at one of our parties in the retirement facility in which we live. Ofelia was a nurse for over 60 years, both in the U.S. and in the Philippines, where she was a public health nurse and taught hygiene and family planning. Considering that entails traveling by boat to many of the islands of her native land, she deserves a medal. There are over 7,000 islands in the Philippines!

    Me, my sister took it with a film camera I gave her for xmass a few years ago. I took her out around the city to learn the camera. I was shooting The Palace of Fine Arts and was getting some good images. It was a dramatic weather day and it was closed for remodeling.

    A photo of my friend Vlad, and my most successful portrait ever. It is still the number 1 hit when you do a Google search for "Mission Hipster."
