Coyote Encounters on the Virginia Range in Nevada

Leave a comment

I encountered several Coyotes while exploring, scouting-for and or discovering the wildlife on the Virginia Range in Nevada. I cannot give up the exact location, but they live amongst wild horses, free range cattle, and heavy truck and or auto traffic east of Reno Nevada.

Went out to photograph wild horses, and also met a  Coyote.

Hopefully I saved a raptors life today.

So I was sitting in my usual spot in Golden Gate Park when suddenly beside me branches, a pine cone and a body came crashing to the ground. I immediately noticed the body was that of a raptor. It had feathers but no wings. The bird had fallen approx. 50 feet from it’s nest in the tree, but it was still alive. I immediately went into action, and called the Park Rangers. They transferred me to Animal Care and Control, who responded in minutes. I led them to the bird and they took it away. It appeared to be a baby hawk/raptor. Sometimes the adults will throw out the babies who they think may not live. But I felt it was worth getting that bird help.

Update: called Animal Care and Control and they said the raptor was bleeding from its mouth and was not breathing normally so they had to euthanize it.

A Walk on the Wild Side!

A walk on the wild side.

20140414-080136.jpg
Sometimes my walk on the wild side starts out on beds of yellow and white flowers.

20140414-080254.jpg
Or my walk in the wild side is on paved trails.

20140414-080539.jpg
And that walk is always under huge trees….

20140414-080846.jpg
….trees that can kill.
And during that walk on the wild side, I am always surrounded by huge birds.
Birds that eat meat.

Or birds that don’t eat meat. During that walk on the wild side, I am always accompanied by critters. Critters from above, and below.

20140414-081321.jpg
Sometimes during that walk on the wild side, critters pose for me, follow me or buzz around my head.

20140414-081532.jpg

20140414-081625.jpg
And always during that walk on the wild side I am constantly surrounded by watchful eyes and curious minds.

So get out and take a walk on the wild side, but be careful.

Pics from Ocean Beach Rescue.

On Wednesday April 8th, while sitting at a friends house, and I suddenly started hearing a lot of sirens. So I turned on the scanner, and a rescue operation of swimmers in the water was underway at Ocean Beach in San Francisco. After finishing up, I ran to the scene and this is what I captured.

Reported on immigration/deportation protest

Leave a comment

I knew there was going to be a immigration/deportation protest in downtown San Francisco today. So I went to it and it is my opinion that I reported it faster than mainstream media.
I have no comments about immigration, except I do have experiences.
One was that one of my favorite wildlife photographers had been deported, and the other is that lady who threatened to kill me everyday for 2 weeks had been picked up by ICE.
Demonstrators say at least 2 million people have been deported. There are 13 immigration courts at 100 Montgomery street in San Francisco, and there are approx. 24,000 cases active right now in that building.

The I (Eye) in Media
Opening Night: Friday, March 14, 6 to 9pm
Gallery Hours: Sat/Sun, March 15,16 and Sat/Sun, March 22,23, 12pm to 5pm

An installation project about the “I” in media and how we make it, subculture media catalysts, and how to add your “I (Eye)” to the media.

“The I (Eye) in Media” installation shows you how easy it is to add your I (eye) to the media, celebrates coverage of protests and demonstrations, and introduces the community media champions,

World premiere of the Predicta PC steampunk TVs Episode 5 gets you into the TOHO-Scope newsrooms who report on Godzilla through the decades.

SF’s favorite costumed roller skater is having his first gallery installation, and he’s ready to talk about his slinky satire and street theater life.

“The media” is made by people, and we are the people who put ourselves in the media as much as we are the media. We are activists, makers, hacks, hackers, videographers, costume designers, internet video viralists, and culture-harvesters who post flyers. Media is all around us and our role is flippy-floppy all day long: sometimes we are absorbing and sometimes we are making.

Our Bay Area media –community, local, print, internet, television, radio– is rich with participation, and it’s your personal choice to be included in the local media, via political art and satire, flyer art, neighborhood newspapers, public access television, political demonstrations, organizing, and documenting under-reported events, and more.
