Petaluma is located in Southern Sonoma County just north of Marin County. Since the early days Petaluma has been primarily an agricultural city although the products have shifted over time. In the earlier days Petaluma's main name to fame was the egg industry and the Petaluma River was key to getting the product to market.
San Francisco was a growing fast during the gold rush days and the residents needed food. The Petaluma area was then known as the poultry capitol of Northern California. The easiest way of getting the eggs to market was by sending them down on barges through the Petaluma River. From there they would cross the San Pablo Bay and end up over in San Francisco.
Now many of the chicken coops have fallen or are falling down....
Thank you for taking your time to visit my galleries. I'm a photographer that makes his home in Northern California. I love getting out shooting the outstanding scenery that this area has to offer. I may be in Yosemite one weekend and the Napa wine country the next. I try not to set limits on where, when or what I shoot.
I've been shooting photography now for roughly six years and am learning something new everytime I go out. If you see anything you like please leave a comment, I'll try my best to acknowledge it. If you have any suggestions please feel free to share them.
Eventually I plan on branching out to children and pets.
Please come back often as I am continously adding new work.
