San Francisco Airship

Some of my photos of the band playing a free gig at the De Young Museum in San Francisco are in their gallery. A wonderful and fun Jefferson Airplane cover band, the members have serious chops and credibility. They were an appropriate choice to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love!

Nothing to Say

I'm shooting primarily with a Pentax K-3 (along with a K-r when shooting events) or a Sony RX100M2. Film cameras include my old Minolta XG-M, Pentax Pz-1p, Honeywell Pentax H3v, Nikon F2 and a few others.

For street I tend to shoot 28mm or wider, usually from the hip with the Sony.
