Banning, CA:  Struck By The Orderliness

When I started looking for a new home at Sun Lakes Country Club, I was struck by the orderliness of the community. With few exceptions, every home was well-cared for, with neatly-manicured lawns and flower beds, no oil stains on driveways, quite literally nothing out of place anywhere! Yesterday, a group of neighbors and I […]

Banning, CA: “Pay It Forward” Pays Off

Banning, CA: “Pay It Forward” Pays Off

In early January, I listed my Highland home of 13 years for sale. It sold quickly, allowing me to downsize into another place I’d spotted that would meet my purposes perfectly in the Sun Lakes Country Club community in Banning. Since we couldn’t coordinate the respective escrows with great precision, I opted to spend a […]

From The Archives: Cooling Off With An Epic Squirt Gun Battle

It’s been hot this week in the IE, so I’ve spent much of my time indoors sorting and cataloging files on an old hard drive. I stumbled on this photo, from 2005 if the clock in my camera was set correctly, which seems to fit the weather we’re currently experiencing. As a former newspaper photojournalist, […]

From The Archives: Adobe Stock Is On Fire

Adobe (ADBE) has been in the news lately. The Motley Fool financial website suggests it’s one of the best software stocks around, given its performance so far this year. The news reminded me of this photo I made some years back, during PhotoShop World 2010 in Las Vegas, showing Adobe CEO Shantanu Narayen welcoming faithful […]

Winning Photos Reflect Inland Empire & Fair/Festival Themes

Two of my photos placed in this year’s 104th National Orange Show Citrus Fair photography contest. The one above, showing carnival rides at dusk during the San Bernardino County Fair in 2017, took first place in the “Fair/Festival” theme category, while below, showing San Bernardino Peak covered with snow in February seen from Base Line […]
