Last weekend I was staying in Palo Alto for a Stem Cell pickup and got to meet up with Joseph (aka Coast) on both Saturday and Sunday.

This thread is to document our shots, but as ever, I'll start off with a range of group shots...

B1. Inside the car..


b2. At Pigeon Point


b3. Posing with the car


Many thanks to Joseph for meeting up and showing me around his home town...

So good to meet up and have a mini Dyxum meet w Bob J, a real nice guy and gentleman as you all know.
Bob, had a great time, we'll have to do it again soon, even if we were dodging rain showers the whole 2 days
Can't wait to see some pics. BTW that's us on the PCH "Pacific Coast Hwy"

Hello Pieter:
Yes I have pictures, but not many processed. I recently purchased 2 photo editors, On1 and Luminar 3 unfortunately, the learning curve has been steep and I'm still working on those. What I'll do is go back to Apples in-house editor "photos" and work some up on that.

The biggest situation we ran into is, it rained the whole time. Its been raining ever since, the snow pac in the Sierra's to date is 150% of average and climbing! I don't mind, it just gives more of a mood tempo. It did eliminate   strolls thru the town, taking photos.
We had stopped on the north Golden Gate Bridge Vista, then to the top vista on Conzelman Rd for more pics. Followed Conzelman thru Marin Headlands to Sausalito in hopes of getting the million dollar shot of San Francisco. Maybe Bob got some future photos in mind of the Pacific during the drive-thru. He has an open invite to come back any time and we'll travel and photograph whatever

Bob J in California


will be working up more soon_______Joseph

also will expound on the trials and tribulations I'm running into w the photo editors in

Great reportage Joseph and Bob, 5, 7 and 9 are my favourites of Coast' shots, 1 is also nice but a bit overprocessed for my taste. b14 has a great mood and the smile in b20 says it all . If Cam was still alive he would for sure have a small remark on b16 and b17

Looking forward to more
