I recently started posting photos on http://jpgmag.com/, an online photo community that encourages folks to participate in weekly photo challenges that cover a variety of themes. A week or so ago, they had a theme titled, "Grilled to Perfection." Thought it was a great opportunity to try and shoot some grilled fruit as opposed to the tired meat shots I expected to see. So here's my contribution...grilled peaches. And I'm happy to say that it was a featured photo on their blog! So exciting.

If you live in Southern California, you're all too familiar with the weather phenomenon called "June Gloom." If not, I'll indulge you. It's when the marine layer floats in and envelopes the beaches and city with a veil of fog. Fortunately it usually burns off in the afternoon. Anyway, in the spirit of June Gloom, I thought I'd post some photos I took in England and Scotland that capture delightfully gloomy days. As a former East Coaster, I'm probably one of the few folks who doesn't mind a gray day and now and again.
The first image is a view from a park in Edinburgh, Scotland looking out to the "old town" which dates back to the 1300s. The second picture is the famous Chatsworth House located in the Yorkshire Dales, a stately home that you may recognize from the film, "Pride & Prejudice."
