Helen and I have lived in Portola Valley Ranch since 1977. These images date from 2002, the early days of my digital photography, though most are from the last few years.

Portola Valley Ranch, in Portola Valley, California, is a 400-acre housing development: <http://www.pvranch.org/home.htm>. Our 200 homes are built on half of this land, surrounded by undeveloped land and woodland trails. The other half of the land is completely undeveloped, except for a set of walking and riding trails open to the public. The trails of PVR connect to a more extensive trail system in Portola Valley -- Windy Hill Open Space to the west, and Los Trancos Trail/Blue Oaks/Black Oak Trail to the south and east.

On our morning walks, Helen and I visit these trails. I often carry a camera.
