My Unicorn

My Unicorn

So we’re sitting in this very low-key wine bar in the Hayes Valley neighborhood of San Francisco last winter when I first laid eyes on the Unicorn – a sculpture, made using & twisting a whole lot of wire. Jaime and our friend Shannon (who introduced us to the establishment), both agreed I was out… + Read More

People In Your Neighborhood – an Unfinished Photo Project

By: Dennis Viera I’ve always loved the work of Richard Avedon, and his In the American West project   provided great inspiration for a project I’ve wanted to do for a while. My normal approach to portraits is to be more environmental and intimate. Most of the time I’m trying to coach something deeper out of people. But… + Read More

Tom

Tom lives in Ocean Beach but was up in Oceanside on this windy, showery afternoon when I was out and about testing some stuff with my camera at the end of Wisconsin Street.  People always need a really good explanation for why I want to take their photo and I never have them on hand… + Read More

West Hollywood Park Rally

West Hollywood Park Rally

Yesterday a Federal Judge ruled Proposition 8 (the 2008 voter initiative banning same-sex marriages) as unconstitutional. We drove up to West Hollywood to photograph the rally that occurred in the West Hollywood Park. Unfortunately, we were a bit late due to heavy traffic and arrived after all the speeches – but we were happy to… + Read More

My Man Cave (Girls Allowed)

My Man Cave (Girls Allowed)

Although it may seem to my friends and family that I never sit still (true most of the time), I do fully relax when the sun goes down and I have a delicious beer and some nice music in my listening lounge.  Here I am hard at work, relaxing.  Notice the dazzling unicorn hanging in… + Read More

Too many photos…

Too many photos…

I’ve been going through the archives over the past few days, desperately trying to make some sense of the mass quantity of files, slides, negatives in our files and now believe what Jaime’s told me all along…we take a LOT of photos. So in efforts to knock the dust off the ol’ blog, we’ll start… + Read More

Gotta Love Freedom of Speech…

Gotta Love Freedom of Speech…

Something odd that I saw today written on the side of a bus.  The bus was completely covered, head to toe.  Someone sure went through a whole lot of effort to confuse the crap out of me. + Read More

Our Friend Lana the Bonobo

Our Friend Lana the Bonobo

All our closest friends think we’re a bit weird when we talk about the special friendship we have with the Bonobos at the San Diego Zoo and one in particular, a 30 year old female named Lana. But we think it’s pretty special… We’ve been members of the Zoo on and off for about 12 years… + Read More

El Niño = Big Surf

El Niño = Big Surf

This has been quite the winter for surf here on the west coast thanks to the El Niño weather pattern and being a serious weather geek, it’s been really cool to actually experience some proper weather for a change.  The El Niño is, in short, a disruption of the typical weather pattern over the tropical Pacific.  This typically brings… + Read More
