I am going to be having my first solo photo exhibit later this month. The exhibit, entitled “Wide Angle World: Travels 2006 – 2016,” will run February 21 through March 9, will be held at the Gresham Art Gallery. The gallery is open 10am – 12pm and 1pm – 3pm Monday through Thursday. There will also be a reception on Tuesday, February 28 from 5pm – 7pm at the gallery.

The Gresham Art Gallery is located on the San Bernardino Valley College campus next to the Administration building. Turn on Esperanza Street (there is a Pizza Hut located on the corner of Esperanza St.) from Mount Vernon Avenue to get to the parking lots closest to the gallery. Parking for receptions is free in lots 3, 4 and 5.

Macro Currency

We have a cork board at home where my wife pins up the currency we’ve acquired from our travels. Ironically, neither of us seems to have any currency from Tunisia, the country where we met. Oh well. Anyway, I brought out my macro lens this morning and had a little creative fun. (Nikon Df with Nikkor 105mm f/2.8 lens).

Travel Tales – Morocco

Africa, International Travel, Photography

“Due to my mom’s love of films from the 40s and 50s, I grew up very knowledgeable about all things film noir and some of my favorite actors come from this era: Joseph Cotton, Gene Tierney, and, of course, Humphrey Bogart. Naturally, one cannot think of Bogey without thinking of Casablanca. Not surprisingly, the city of the film (which was mostly shot on a sound stage in Hollywood) has nothing to do with the real city. In reality, Casablanca is Morocco’s largest city with well over three million inhabitants. It should also be noted that there are about a dozen Rick’s Cafes for tourists to find and photograph.”
