Mt. Tamalpais, its surrounding forests and streams, are my territory. It is part of the United Nations Golden Gate Biosphere, recognized for its abundance of species and habitats in the ever-growing and increasingly developed San Francisco Bay Area.
In the years I’ve lived here, I’ve spent time with many individual animals and their family groups. I ramble the same trails and sit on the same hills every week. This regular practice makes me a familiar to the creatures here, and so, some of them let me take intimate portraits of their daily lives. The beautiful land and lakes, flowers and vistas, call me too. I have learned that the land and its plants and animals expect us to make and keep agreements – when we do, we are part of the place, and we can feel connected to the world.
