Pitter Patter and Pops of Pink

The rain began the day after I arrived, and except for a few pockets of sunshine it continued until the morning I left. I could not have been more content. A steady pitter patter matched the sound and pace of my fingers on a keyboard when a weekend of typing, I spent. Polishing and perfecting …

I photographed these two beauties and their sidekick in 1997, while I was vacationing in San Diego. Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art ... It has no survival value; rather it is one of those things which …
