It’s All About the Family…

Last week I received this email:

I am looking for someone to take photos of my extended family (13 people ages 3 mos-75 yrs) in Bolinas. We are renting a house there for the weekend for my mom’s birthday. I think we would want some photos of everyone and some of the four nuclear families that make up the 13 people. Your photos are beautiful. I didn’t look at all of them but they seemed to be mostly one person. Do you have any examples of larger groups?

Thanks,
Deborah

So, inspired, I decided to dig through the archives and share some of my favorite Rolleiflex “family”photos…

The Women Behind Biofuel Oasis…

Today I got to meet the women of Biofuel Oasis.

Biofuel Oasis was founded in 2003 to provide greater access to biodiesel, a renewable fuel that reduces harmful tailpipe emissions. They are a women/worker-owned & operated cooperative that values sustainability, local production, and community.

And it is a very exciting year for this group. Not only is their business in the middle of the whole alternative-energy political swirl, but they are moving to a beautiful new station in Oakland in a couple of months, and most importantly… they now have new photos by paige green photography. Wow, it’s a big year indeed.

I enjoyed my quick glimpse into the bio-diesel world of these rad women, although the priority of this trip was to take formal photos, so I didn’t get to see them in action as much as I would have liked. But I guess that just means I will have to make another trip.

If only my little Honda, Ralph, were a diesel and if I lived in the East Bay, then I would most certainly go to them for all my biodiesel needs, but unfortunately Ralph isn’t and I don’t, so the best I can do is to tell all you… so if you live in the East Bay and you have biodiesel needs then these are the women to go to.
