I walked into UCR’s California Museum of Photography to see the Gary Winogrand show, expecting that the $3 entrance charge had been upgraded to $5 or so. It had been some time since… Continue reading
The Gary Winogrand show, Women Are Beautiful, opened at the California Museum of Photography yesterday, August 10, 2013. The 85 print selection of photographs of women in public was originally titled Observations of… Continue reading
My wife Lisa can attest to this: I rarely get anxious about anything. There may be a couple reasons for my generally low anxiety levels. 1. I’ve lived long enough in this particular… Continue reading
Nikon N90s, Kentmere 100 Film. Made at Anza Narrows, Riverside, California.
My riding group went down to the Pacific Coast and back on Sunday, August 4. It was a 338 mile round trip for me, which is not a bad ride for a single… Continue reading
Nikon N90s, 28mm prime lens, Kentmere 100 Film.

Though for many years I used to hike Mount Rubidoux in the mornings five or six times a week, there were quite a number of months that I didn’t do that. There were… Continue reading
This photograph is of and by my brother, Robert Thomas Alexander.
You meet the best people at NoPork… I didn’t have anything in particular planned Saturday morning, except to pick up some #11 Exacto knife blades at the local hardware store and a can… Continue reading
This 1941 Ford convertible had extensive body remodeling done to it. Even though it was not stock by a long shot, it looked quite good to me. I wouldn’t mind parking it outside… Continue reading
This one was a quick “grab shot” with the Panasonic FX01. There was no time to adjust the murky photo because a couple seconds later they were jolted awake by an announcement over… Continue reading
Baby, you’re much too fast…
Of late, I have been somewhat fixated on the sandstone outcroppings in the Cajon Pass. On Sunday morning I took a quick look at the sky, thinking about the outcroppings, and though it… Continue reading
On June 29th I woke at 4:00 am with the idea that it was a good time to ride to Joshua Tree. It wasn’t an idea that I had before going to sleep,… Continue reading

I’ve been eyeballing this rock outcropping in the Cajon Pass for years when riding by. But that was it. I just rode by. I kept thinking that there were good photographs to be… Continue reading
There is a small story, somewhat short of a vignette, about this photograph. I don’t have the time to write it properly today, since I haven’t sorted through the other images taken in… Continue reading
For several days, we’ve had temperatures well in excess of 100 f. We spend as much time as possible indoors, away from the heat. With no posts for a few days, it may… Continue reading
These photographs were made by my nine year old grandson at Tuxies Cruise Night on June 14, 2013. He typically shoots a Minolta X 700 with a 50mm lens, but didn’t have it… Continue reading
Getting ready for the Yosemite ride nearly two months ago, in addition to the Yashica MAT 124 and Nikon N90s film cameras, along with many rolls of 120 and 35mm rolls of film,… Continue reading
It was misty early Saturday morning and as often happens on that day of the week, I woke with a particular riding destination in mind. I wanted to ride up Route 38 into… Continue reading

This image was made at The Fox Theater in Downtown Riverside, California.
I made this photograph with my Panasonic Lumix G1 nearly two years ago. I still haven’t decided if Fishlips Sushi is one of the worst business names ever or if it is pure… Continue reading
This 1976 Husqvarna 250 WR is yet another bike owned and lovingly restored to running condition by Fritz Harmon. My grandson and I were wandering around the parking lot behind Tuxies during the… Continue reading
These photographs of motorcycles were taken during two visits to the Cars and Coffee show in Irvine, California, with a Nikon N90s loaded with Kentmere 100 film. Cars and Coffee is very motorcycle-friendly… Continue reading
I’m drawn to the Corvettes manufactured between the mid-1950s and mid-1960s because of their looks. The only automobiles that look better to me are the Jaguar XKs, the 120s, 140s, and 150s. I’ll… Continue reading
It seemed that it would be a “one tank” ride: Meet at an off-ramp in Corona, ride to Irvine for the Cars and Coffee show at 6:00 am, then return to the Inland… Continue reading
He’s everywhere. There’s always at least one iteration of him at any major event. Like a shape shifter or a facedancer, he looks like different people at different times. During this event there… Continue reading
