I love Spring

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Ahh Spring! I love the smell of flowering trees. Here are some pictures from the Japanese Tea Gardens in SF last weekend.










Disney Nature

Friday, April 3rd, 2009

My two loves are together at last, Walt Disney Studios is coming out with its first full length nature documentary, called Earth. It opens April 22nd to celebrate Earth Day. Disney teamed up with producer Alastair Fothergill of Planet Earth and Blue Planet to create Earth. Looks like they are going super earth friendly and even recycling some of the film from Fothergill’s earlier films.

Disney has pledged to plant one tree for every ticket sold in the first week in the Brazilian Atlantic forest, one of the most threatened rainforests in the world.

Nonna

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

This is a picture of my Nonna. It won a photo contest in 1938. I am not sure who the photographer is. Nonna passed away over ten years ago now, but she was a fabulous lady.
It’s such a fun picture I thought I would post it. I played with it in photoshop a bit to add some color!

I love how this picture shows her relationship with the ocean – a love and appreciation which her grandkids also share. I actually remember playing on the edge of the water with my Nonna when I was about four years old. A HUGE (probably not that huge but in my memory it’s like 8 feet tall) wave came right to the shore and knocked us both over – an event that should have been quite frightening for a little four year old. I remember getting up after wards washing all the water off our faces and thinking woah – that was pretty awesome.

Irreplaceable: Wildlife in a Warming World

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

Friday I went to the San Francisco Public Library (100 Larkin Street) to see Irreplaceable a photography exhibit that shows how global warming is affecting wildlife. The exhibit will travel to twelve or so major cities. The goal is to educate the public and collect signatures to show policymakers that we are concerned about the fate of our wildlife. The exhibition will end in Washington D.C. where it will be presented along with all the signatures collect to policy makers in congress. You can participate in this unique photo petition by sending letters or submitting your own photographs. Visit this page for more information on how to get involved.

Scientists belief that global warming will be the number one cause of species extinction in the next century. To help do your part sign their “Call to Care” form.

I am including some of my favorite photographs from the exhibit here. Please visit Irreplaceable’s website to see all the photographs and get the stories that go with them.

The exhibit itself didn’t have anything they don’t have on their website and it was kind of just randomly put through the fifth floor of the library. So I would say check it out if you are in the area but don’t go out of your way to get there. Definitely take the time to check out the website because it is a great cause and there are some amazing Photographs.

To see when the exhibit will be in your city check out their schedule.
