“It’s November, Right?”

Three words "It's November, right?" Have been thrown around quite a bit by some firefighter friends of mine, people on the street, one lady in Safeway and a guy pumping gas in a faded Jeep Wagoneer, Friday afternoon. It feels more like winter in Florida here (even though it's not [...]

This has been a great year to photograph the full moon.  There's been very little fog...or storms to keep the moon from being camera obscured.  I will generally scout a location the day before which gives a good feel for Sonoma County, or as Cathy Barnett (Executive Editor here at [...]

On the edge of the Laguna de Santa Rosa in Rohnert Park, local residents soaked in the last sun rays of Halloween at the Santa Rosa Pumpkin Patch off Stony Point Road.  The continuation of  pleasant weather has given summer a little more ledge to hang on. The light for [...]

With the events last week, we photogs at the PD have been neck deep in coverage of the Andy Lopez killing.  That didn't leave much time to head to the Laguna de Santa Rosa and shoot photographs.  Beside having an unfortunate scrape with concrete that left my knee and elbow [...]

Took a walk around the Laguna today, that is, near Sebastopol's Laguna baseball fields.  I just never know what I'm going to see as the trail unfolds.  The afternoon light remains crazy good, which adds to the depth of the pictures. -Kent [...]
