Answers to Comment Questions:

Image Description Here
Q: Can you give me some info on a good camera with a reasonable price?
A: The Canon AE-1, probably 100 to 200 bucks anywhere used cameras are sold. The 'AE-1 Program' has some extra automatic features. You have to learn photography as well.
It's easy. Get this book: Black and White Photography, by Henry Horenstein
Read it, and start shooting. You will learn from your mistakes. Failure and bitter defeat is part of the game. This is EXACTLY how I learned to shoot photos. (Plus getting advice from friends)
No more excuses.

Q: Geez Ed what brand of acrylic paint do you use?
A: I use house paint from Home Depot, or OSH, then Liquitex, Windsor Newton, or whatever ones I bought from the regular art store. Mostly those two brands...

Catalina Adventures

Image Description Here
The other day Deanna and I decided to go to Santa Catalina by ourselves. It is about 28 miles off the coast of Los Angeles and Orange County.
Image Description Here
The boat ride over is fun, and often you see dolphin. We didn't see any this day, but probably because we fell asleep...

This tile artwork, a mosaic if you will, is at the big round Casino Ballroom, the landmark building in the town of Avalon. It is not a casino with gambling, but a movie theater and a ballroom.
Image Description Here
This is the Casino from the small boat I rented.
Image Description Here
And here is Deanna on a small secluded beach we found, miles north of Avalon.
Image Description Here
The beach was rugged, and nobody was around. You can really get a feel for what California must have been like before humans came to fuck it up. We swam with a stingray, and shared the beach with large Brown Pelicans. Harbor seals and Sea Lions swam around everywhere.
Image Description Here
When we left the moon was rising, and it had been a great day.
Posted September 16th, 2006 by I survived the stingray, lucky it was small

Catalina Island Fox

Image Description Here
The Island Fox is protected because of its extreme rarity, therefore it is illegal to harass, harm or keep one as a pet. It is a candidate for federal endangered species listing. There are fewer than 2000 Island foxes in the entire world.

I broke the first rule.

The first rule of a self portrait in the mirror is to look at the camera in the mirror!
Not the one on your hand!
