santa cruz: Is this trick photography or creative photography? - 08/14/16 05:49 AM
Is this trick photography or creative photography?
With all the technology in our computers and smart phones it has become easy to photoshop and doctor up photographs. And with so much of it going on our definitions of  doctored, photoshopped and trick photography continue to change.
This is quite a simple question and there may be a gray spot on the definition of this photograph below.
I took this photograph Saturday 8/13/2016 at the very far end of the longest pier in the United States and can you guess that pier?

santa cruz: La Selva Beach Robert Swetz's favorite beach in Santa Cruz - 05/09/15 10:35 AM

La Selva Beach is by far one of Robert Vegas Bob Swetz's favorite beaches in Santa Cruz.
Santa Cruz, Capitola and Rio del Mar are very nice beaches, but La Selva is much more laid back with very few people ;o)
Here are three very colorful photos that I took with my iPhone 6+ today.
And for anyone that has never been to La Selva Beach that is spending time around the Santa Cruz area, check out one of my favorite beaches in NorCal.

santa cruz: UFO Sighted in Santa Cruz California - 04/23/15 12:29 PM
I couldn't believe my eyes when I first saw this very strange flying aircraft this evening.
When I first saw this very different flying object, for a minute I thought ...
"Is that a UFO"?
And then after it flew by I knew I had seen this type of jet before at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas Nevada.
It is called a Northrop Grumman B-2 Spirit, also known as the Stealth Bomber.
And even if this aircraft was made in the United States of America, Vegas Bob seriously believes that the technology came from Extraterrestrials ;o)

santa cruz: Is this Historic Home worth fixing up? - 06/24/12 02:14 AM

  I have seen my far share of "Fixer-Upper" homes in my day, but this one might be a little far gone. This home sits on the edge of Hwy 1 on the shirts of Moss Landing California around 30 miles south of Santa Cruz. I don't really know the history of this home but it sits on a HUGE piece of acreage with a very well know business attached to it. At one time the owners of this home were very wealthy and the ancestors that took over the home, business and acreage probably still are ... "So why … (16 comments)
