I was lucky enough to acquire a lot of  antique abattoir photos a few years ago. After the slaughter house piece ran in SF Magazine I let a few of them out to bee seen by the world.  The photos I chose are very cool to see, very simple and austere but to the point.

Sorry I have been busy

Well its been a bit since i have written so i figured i would give an update. I have traveled to NYC, LA and few others in between. I even started to race my bike again to get back in shape my first race was the SSWC in Napa CA, what a great time that was. To top it we have opened the retail location and store front for Boccalone in the Ferry building market place. This isn’t an excuse but the facts I have been busy and been neglecting my website, but do not fear there is more coming.
