Saunders Fine Arts Photography POTD - Crissy Field

A beautiful, foggy, and much warmer morning at Crissy Field in San Francisco, California.



A Great Blue Heron marched right past me at Crissy Field on another day, and didn't seem to mind my camera a bit.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Patrick Saunders Plein Air Painting

I am posting this picture because it makes me feel warmer just looking at it. I photographed Patrick Saunders as he was concentrating on his painting for the Stems Plein Air event last year.

Saunders Fine Arts - Pet Portrait of Boulder Meers

This gorgeous girl was the highlight of a recent commercial shoot that Patrick and I just completed. She charmed us out of our lunch fries, and then schooled us for trying to violate her privacy by putting a GoPro on her by promptly lying down hard on it, turning it off, while she took a long siesta. Love this girl.

Saunders Fine Arts POTD - Dog Bliss

The Saunders family spent many a happy day at Fort Funston Dog Beach when we lived in San Francisco. It's a wonderful place to be, and I think Barney and Betty were happier there than anywhere else we've ever lived/visited.


Barney and Betty, exhausted after a game of fetch.


Barney got all the credit for being an amazing athlete, but Betty was even faster than he was back in the day. She just knew when to quit, unlike her brother, who can now barely walk because of it. Hard to believe they are almost 15 years old now.


Patrick mugging for the camera with Betty. We had to climb up and down these incredible stairs to get to the beach.
