Pixels of Petaluma (2010)

Selected photos from various events & scenes in and around Petaluma with one exception–the Mill Valley Art Festival 

Some of the photos were featured in blogs in 2010 and many were taken as stand alone photos that are being published for the first time

FEATURED PIXELS OF THE YEAR

I. Foreclosure Moving Day (October 2010)

A symbol of the darker side of the year…Unfortunately, it may be predictive of 2011…

II. Petaluma’s NGO’s such as Rebuilding Together Petaluma 

Essential in 2010…even more so in 2011…

 III. St James Community Garden Committee

Thanks for your work in creating a beautiful vegetable and flower garden…and providing me many opportunities to exercise my camera gear…

Turtles Three In Lucchesi. Note that each has a leg over the side. Ready for a quick escape to the water? Perhaps a secret Turtle Lodge greeting? 

  JULY

Lucchesi Lake–to me, this photo collage is a metaphor or a symbol of the deterioration of our public infrastructure in Petaluma, Sonoma County, California, and the country.

In carpentry the motto is to measure twice and cut once. Perhaps there should be a similar motto in civil engineering? 

One of the rare warm days this summer…A boat on the river…

SEPTEMBER

A Morning in the Park

La Tercera Community Garden–Built in November, 2007 and still going strong in September 2010

Scenes from the Mill Valley Art Festival in September.  These photos are included because of a remark I overhead from one of the visitors that could serve as the basis of many a course in creative critical analysis…“If I can do it, it’s not art!”

 OCTOBER

Rebuilding Together Petaluma (RTP) Volunteers during October workday in our parks.  Very busy people indeed…

NOVEMBER

Community Center 

 The last photo in this album should come as no surprise, given my past crusades against wandering shopping carts. I long ago ceased to pay them much attention. However, the old instinct sometimes motivates me to take just one more cart photo…in this case, adjacent to Petaluma Valley Hospital. There is a certain “logic” in this photograph as all the carts are from the CVS Pharmacy across the street…
