Photo Of The Day : “Moon Over Stanford”

This is another photo from the Trey Ratcliff (Stuck In Customs) photo walk at Stanford University on August 11, 2011. This was an amazing event, with over 200 photographers! All organized through my new obsession, Google+. This was the first Google+ Flash mob, and may have been a world record for a photo walk. Although Trey thinks it may have been 5 or 10 people shy of his Austin Photowalk. Thank you Bay Area traffic!

You can view the rest of the photos I took on my Google+ album at https://plus.google.com/photos/106719979779567208605/albums/5640125127238409201

Also, below the photo I took, is a group photo taken by Peter Adams (https://plus.google.com/106983800549406471589/posts)

If you are not on Google+ and you love photography, you NEED to be. It’s a great place for photographers to interact and share their work. Even if you are not a photographer, it is a great place to find new photographers. You need an invite though, but I have plenty to send! (You must add me to your circle though 🙂


Photo Of The Day : “The Tug Boat”

I am really curious to what the name of the barge is. I am thinking the language is Russian, but can’t be sure sure, since I cannot type those characters into my stupid American keyboard. Anyone out there have an idea? This was taken from the Commodore Events yacht while shooting the wedding of Angelina and Arthur Brooks!


Photo Of The Day : “The Swamps Of Hawaii”

This scene struck me as one of those classic scenes you see in your head when you think of Hawaii. Yet another scene from the beautiful Waimea Falls in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii.

Photo Of The Day: “The God Of Cool”

You never know what you are going to see in the Napa Valley wine country. Such as this awesome statue at the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. This was spotted during the annual April in Carneros event. Can anyone tell me which greek god this is?

Photo Of The Day “Hawaiian Peacock”

I was lucky enough to take a last minute trip to the North Shore of O’ahu with my friend and his beautiful wife and kids, as well as his sister, her husband and their kids. Talk about a crash course in parenting! I am glad I got to spend this amazing few days with them before Mother’s day came upon us. Having no children of my own, it really gave me a better appreciation to what a parent has to go through on a daily basis. Happy Mother’s day!

Anyway, it wasn’t the tropical vacation I had necessarily envisioned. I dreamt of hot sun, warm sand, and cold Coronas. Instead I got mild temperatures, wet sand, and lots of STRONG rain. But hey, the Coronas were still cold! But without that rain and clouds, I don’t know if we would have made it to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park consists of beautiful flowers and plants, gushing rivers, roaring waterfalls, and active wildlife. I was lucky enough to find a peacock who didn’t mind posing for the camera.


Photo Of The Day: “2010 World Series Champions”

A very simple photo today, but probably the most beautiful photo I have ever taken. WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS!

Photo Of The Day : “Easy Tacheles”

First, before today’s photos, take a look at a previous post explaining what exactly Tacheles in Berlin is.

https://bonocorephotography.wordpress.com/2010/11/28/daily-photo-tacheles-welder/

Anyway, work is busy busy busy. I find myself with rarely any free time to go through and process my own personal photos, since I spend most of my day photographing client’s needs and processing and delivering the photos they pay me for. It started to occur to me that I probably have processed only about 5% of my photos from Europe. I went to Europe 6 months ago!  Well, as I tried to add more photos to my external hard drive this week, I was greeted with a “This computer can not read this hard drive” Uh oh. Then after numerous attempts, the drive just stopped running. Great. So, I am facing the possibility of EVERYTHING on that drive being lost INCLUDING all my Europe photos. Looks like I need to move to the cloud.

Chances are though, its just a mechanical failure with the device and the data is intact. I just need to pay someone a boatload for “data recovery“. So all this reminded me of Europe, so I decided to share a photo from the amazing artist community of Tacheles. This was from the same room as the welder I shared above. It took about 5 minutes standing in this spot before I was able to get a brief couple of seconds with no on in the frame. This place is amazing. If you are ever in Berlin, you MUST GO!

Photo Of The Day: “Retirement Rainbow”

“Retirement Rainbow”

Friday March 18th started a span of at least 10 straight days of what is projected to be a pretty relentless, non stop storm. This was also the day I was hired to shoot a retirement party for a local police chief. When I arrived at the hotel ballroom, it was pouring. I unpack, start snapping photos in the bar/reception area, and all of a sudden, the room gets lit up with a nice warm light. I look outside, and it is……..sunny? Yes, sunny with a HUGE rainbow about a hundred yards from where I was standing.

I like to think it was Mother Nature‘s way of thanking Chief Jim Reis for his years of public service.

Congratulations Chief!

Photo Of The Day : “The Dogs Of Interstate 5”

“The Dogs Of Interstate 5”

Heading down to Las Vegas, Nevada from San Francisco, California on Interstate 5 can be rather boring. It’s long, straight and empty. It gives a photographer a chance to test out his skills on something OTHER than landscapes (even though I got a couple good ones, somehow, to be posted later). So pulling over at a truck stop and being greeted by the resident twin dogs, is a very exciting moment on a very boring, desolate highway.

Photo Of The Day: “The End Of Sausalito”

“The End Of Sausalito”

After almost falling to a certain death when I was blown by a high gust of wind, I was able to recompose, set up my tripod, and capture this 7 exposure HDR Photograph. I drove out to Sausalito, California on Tuesday, hoping that the big awesome storms clouds would roll in to create some dramatic skylines. Of course, this was not to be, so I had to play the cards I was dealt. Not to bad for no clouds, but I will be going back soon! Right at the edge of the foreground grass is a sheer cliff down to the ocean below. I guess this is why this trail is closed, and why I almost died for the art of photography. But it was not to be, as I am made of Tiger’s Blood and Adonis DNA
