The U.S. Open Golf Championship begins with practice rounds at Pebble Beach on Monday. The event will bring the world’s best golfers, along with an estimated quarter of a million visitors to the Monterey Peninsula. This is not your average tourist traffic and peninsula cities are preparing for the onslaught.
An atmospheric river that originated near Hawaii will continue to rain down on the Monterey Bay area through Thursday morning. The storm has caused big problems, including power outages, flooding and downed trees.
Smartphones have turned all of us into photographers, and we are taking more pictures than ever. Whether or not they’re any good… well Carmel photographer Marc Silber at least wants to make them better.
I recently spoke with Silber about his new book Advancing your Photography: A Handbook for Taking Photos You’ll Love.
