Max

My good friend and companion, Max, passed away on October 26th, 2013.  Max, a Tibetan Terrier, was born in Woodland, California on October 30, 2000.  He was raised from a puppy and every day of his life was a day of joy for us.  His full name was Cavu’s Maxmillian Miyano, but Max, Maxman and often Maxboy were the only ones ever heard.  He participated in most of my landscape photography trips including my last one to Arizona and Utah.   I have rarely been in one of my own photographs but Max was in several.   He appears in Max at White Pocket, which was shown at the Maryland Federation of Art this year at their American Landscapes event.

A dog is a photographer’s best asset.  After spending long periods to achieve the correct aperture, shutter speed and composition, the button is pressed and he will magically appear in the field of view to give approval.

Canvas 20x30 inch Prints with Gallery Wrapped Frames

These look terrific without a traditional surrounding frame but many people like to add them anyway because they like them. Don’t hesitate to ask me about availability of this size for any of my images.

No Snow Days
I like to visit Yosemite often in the fall and winter months and usually schedule my trips to coincide with inclement weather. That means snow, of course.
