ABSENTIVITY

The following are a group of photographs taken over the years from Kyoto to Corona del Mar. And in no particular order, other than there being a absence of order. In case you wondered, Absence of Duck was named after a b/w photograph taken in the 1960's off the Venice pier, that created a vacuum in the water as it dove, and I shot it. The photo has gone missing, but not the spirit of the it. Please note that the words are above the photos in all of the blogs.

Perhaps a touch of Tiburon

Below, is a 2015 heron that was hanging out in puddles of water as Katy and I walked by on our way from the train station in Kyoto. The reflection is upside-down.

and one of my favorite shots from the Ginza . . .

The view of SF from Blackie's Pasture in Tiburon.

A 2016 view of apartments from the river boat ride down the Sumida River.

This is a photo that I'm particularly enamored with. Corona del Mar from when I lived there 15 years ago.

This gentleman is from the 83nd Japan Print Association exhibit in 2015. There's a separate tour of the range of 2015 and 2016 exhibits in their own gallery.

The mailbox below was from 1991 on a street in Vermont that was less taken..

It's a good thing you have me here to explain this to you. This is page 4 of a letter from Marlon Brando to Robert Evan, displayed under glass at Francis Ford Coppola's winery in Geyserville.

If you thought the letter was cool, this is Coppola's original casting list for The Godfather.

One my favorite photos from 8 or 9 years ago at Muir Beach. Not many kb's left to the photo.

From 2015 JPA. I realize no one else would pick these photos, but there you go.

This was the perk selling for Ganz. Working the Mendocino Coast.

A few years ago around Hanalei Bay, looking out to Bali Hai.

I guess this is how you expect jellyfish to look.

Another shot from Blackie's Pasture.

Hanalei Bay this summer?

Who is this South Korean monk taking a picture of? HIs fellow monk? No. For the answer look closely at his viewfinder. It's Katy

Last jellyfish. I promise.

That Canoga Park Laundramat, with a former photographer from Sunset Magazine.

Fifteen years ago in Corona del Mar, there was an old lady that wouldn't let me take her picture. But she let me shoot her dog.

A view from the house taken 7 years ago, when I first moved in.

More Kyoto. Same area.

This was a live seahorse.

In Kyoto. 2015.

Ok, so I lied about the last jellyfish.
