Dogtown Mill

A few weeks ago, I spent a day with Robert Buckenmeyer at Dogtown Mill milling the lumber for the Teahouse project. Robert is an amazing craftsman who creates magic from logs, and he has cut three reclaimed redwood trunks, from the widening of Highway 101 in Sonoma County, into absolutely gorgeous timbers and joists for the Teahouse. During the milling, I had the opportunity to get in close with the camera, and here is what I saw... more images after the break.

Summer Fireworks

Beautiful 4th of July fireworks in Petaluma on Monday evening. I love my new Nikon D7000 camera! For the photographers in the audience, these are hand-held shots using the Nikon 18-200mm zoom at f8, 1/15 sec, at ISO 1250. Stunning performance!
