This is not your typical Hollywood California. It's about everyday images from a relatively small University town, north-east of San Francisco, and the nearby mountains.
In July 2008, Iris and I flew to California for a prolonged stay of nearly 9 months in a short-term furnished rental house ("sabbatical house") in Davis, where we used to work. These photos are from the period July to December. They are from Davis, itself, and from visits we made to the Sierra Nevada near Lake Tahoe and to Lassen Volcanic National Park. We also took photographs on a visit to Yosemite Valley in Yosemite National Park and these are in two separate exhibitions, Yosemite Bears and Yosemite 2008.

There are simple technical notes here.
