  I have been honored with the distinction of being chosen to show my photography at the
Carmel Art Institute’s International, Juried Photography Competition & Exhibit.
A handful of photographers were chosen out of hundreds that entered.  Some photographers
had but one photograph chosen for the exhibit, some had none chosen.
I am delighted to say that the judges chose five photographs from my Point Lobos portfolio.
  Opening night for this exhibit is Friday September 28th, 6:00-8:00 pm in the Carmel Barnyard.
Luganos will be serving hors d’oeuvres & wine selections.
  The exhibit runs from September 28th through October 18th, 2012.
Twenty percent of all photography sales goes to benefit The Point Lobos Foundation.
I hope you will visit the exhibition and see why it was named
“The Magic of Point Lobos”.

My Sea Nettle photo won photo of the day April 7th, 2012 for the Monterey Herald’s

photo contest called, “Capture Monterey.”

It has a chance to be published in Monterey’s popular “GO!” magazine.

Our March 20th McAbee Beach dive was a bit clearer, but the upwellings have not clarified the bay yet in Monterey.  The water is way too warm (55 degrees). This makes the algae bloom & murk up the water.

Underwater photography in the past has been best for me around April & May when the water temperature drops to around 47º Fahrenheit. Then the water is nice & clear.
