Mmmmmmm Veggies!

In an effort to eat healthy, organic foods, Alison and I have began receiving a fresh produce box from River Dog Farms. Each week, we get a box of seasonal fruits and vegetables that taste so fresh and delicious. The box has introduced us to lots of new vegetables, forcing us to learn how to cook with new ingredients including romanesco, rapini, kale, chard and turnips. If you're in the Bay Area, I definitely recommend this - not only do you end up eating more veggies, but you're supporting a local organic farm!

Happy Chinese New Year!

In the spirit of Chinese New Year, here are some photos from a celebration at the Senior Center in Modesto.

While I was scouting for another shoot I saw some wild turkeys. I don't know what everyone was thinking when I went running across the hills chasing after the birds. These guys live in the hills above Oakland. I had a blast getting these. Next time I will take some longer lenses.

The sweet smell of smoke

I went back home after the new year to see my parents and there was some pile burning underway. I still love the smell of smoke. I feel like I am home when I smell it. Here are some photos of the guys working in the smoke.
