How to photograph a Double Rainbow

Walking down the street just after the storm, I just happened to be at the right place at the right time. A double rainbow had formed over Manhattan Beach, where I live. I’ve seen rainbows in the sky before, but none this bright, nor of the double variety. With nothing but my trusty iPhone 12 Pro Max by my side, I stepped off the Strand paved walkway and ran, as fast as I could down to the ocean waves. Because who knew just how long the rainbow would last? I wanted to capture the whole...

CES: Rolling phones, giant drone, crazy toilets

CES 2021 got under way Monday with the usual collection of oddities that sound really cool, until you start asking the hard questions. Like that new box from Yale to keep porch pirates away. The packages are dropped off, and the box then locks up. Great. But what happens after UPS has left and the box is locked. How does FedEx get the package in there? And what’s to prevent a porch pirate from just picking up the box and walking away with it? And wait a minute, $250? Really? I wouldn’t...

Trump muzzled with no Twitter? Get real.

No, Donald Trump hasn’t been muzzled, even with a Twitter ban. Get real. Yes Twitter, where Trump boasts of nearly 90 million followers, did bar him from continuing to use its platform. Finally. Social media critics who have been up in arms about Trump’s use of Twitter to bully, vent and incite violence were thrilled. Count me in that camp. But trust me, this week’s Facebook Trump ban is a way bigger deal. The Social Network, after years of critics demanding that it put a curb on what...


"How do you feel?"

As I begin my final week at USA TODAY Monday, after 36 years of service, naturally, many people have asked me the question. What does it feel like to be hanging up your hat after so many years? In a word: weird. Kind of hard to believe. I’m really excited about the next chapter, and bigger focus on video, photography and blogging, but at the same time, it’s not like I hate the day job. I’m not singing “Take this job and shove it.” This year I worked on Christmas Day, the day after, and...

A quick diversion from photography and my recent dive into family history today to take a minute and marvel at a news bite from this week. (There is a photo angle, but you’ll need to read all the way through to get there. Bear with me!) Newsflash! Variety and The Hollywood Reporter, the two longtime Hollywood trade publications, are now corporate siblings. Wow! This is like...


Santa Barbara #Photowalk & a bonus

Directly above, my conversation with Hamish McKenzie, the COO of Substack, this wonderful newsletter platform. As you know, I discovered Substack through an article in the NYTimes this week, signed up, checked it out, and have been testing it this week. Jeff being Jeff, I naturally invited Hamish from Substack the next morning to join me for a #Talking Tech extended interview, asking all the questions I’m sure you have all had about how to use this platform, and why it got started in the...
