Moody Sunset …

Back in 2018 I took a walk up to the Hotel del Coronado here in my current hometown and found one of the most incredible sunsets I've ever seen: bright, vivid oranges and pinks silhouetting the people, lifeguard station, and even a passing seagull on the beach. This past Christmas I made my usual holiday... Continue Reading →

Reflections …

They say the New Year is a time for reflection, so here you go. But seriously, folks ... I have a few "resolutions" for 2022. Be more careful with my money (less Amazon and eBay); isolate more until this Omicron thing peaks and hopefully goes away; and while I'm hopelessly addicted to Instagram (check it...

Happy New Year! …

Happy New Year from the Frolic Room in Hollywood, California ... no, I'm not there. Throughout my life I have steadfastly avoided being anywhere but home on New Year's Eve, the technical term for this behavior being "stick-in-the-mud," but I prefer to think of it as self-preservation. There are a lot of crazy-ass people out... Continue Reading →

Merry Christmas, Everyone! …

I wish everyone who follows this blog—and those who just stumble across it—a very Merry Christmas and the very best in 2022. It can only get better, right? Here's my 2021 Christmas card. Follow me on Instagram @gg92118 for all my latest photos!

Framed …

I used to stay in that hotel in the center of the palm trees when I worked for that big pop culture convention. It's called the Hilton Bayfront San Diego, in a bit of Yoda-like language that seems a bit stilted and opposite ("Hotel name out of order, it is."). This shot was taken on... Continue Reading →

Pasadena Playhouse …

I recently took a trip to Los Angeles and stayed in historic Pasadena, where I found this lovely neon sign. I had to go back and photograph it at night, and the palm tree behind it was nice enough to pose for me, too! Did you know that if you follow me on Instagram @gg92118... Continue Reading →

Just Around This Corner …

Another shot from a night walk from late last year. This restaurant is near my apartment complex and its warm glow really complements the city of San Diego behind it, off across the Big Bay. I don't go out much at night, but when I do, I'm often rewarded with some great photos (if I... Continue Reading →

NYC Again …

The passageway that leads from the steps to Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. There always seems to be a musician (or busker as the Brits call them) playing here, probably because of the sheer amount of people who roam through each day and also the sound quality in this enclosed space. It lays just at... Continue Reading →

Night Falls …

The days are shorter and the temperature starts to drop around 3:30 or so each day, even on the days when it approaches 80 (like today, which is Thanksgiving 2021). This little bit of sunset was captured last year, right behind the Hotel del Coronado as night slowly and silently fell. It was a good... Continue Reading →

Imagine …

Another photo from my recent trip to New York City ... I posted an older photo of this iconic memorial to John Lennon a few weeks back, not realizing I would stumble upon it yet again on my most recent trip to New York. I always enter Central Park at Central Park South and Fifth... Continue Reading →

Plaza Sweet …

Another photo from my recent trip to New York City ... The Plaza is one of those storied establishments, a real New York City icon. I've roamed through the lobby (not possible this trip since they were only allowing registered guests into the building) and I've eaten in the Plaza Food Hall downstairs, a decidedly... Continue Reading →

All the Leaves Are Brown …

Another photo from my recent trip to New York City ... Besides friends and family, there are only two things I really miss about living back east: Rain and fall. There's something very soothing about a steady falling rain hitting rooftops and trees. And fall--or autumn, if you prefer--is such an abrupt change of season... Continue Reading →
