    Very Cool! Love the photo of the perfect wave with the trash can and water fountain. At first I couldn’t tell what it was and that was what made it so interesting.

    Really enjoyed your work. My fav wld have to be the photo of the bars in the old school Cbad with the man and bird. I love the B&W really makes us use our minds on a photo instead of being distracted by colors. Your work shows how I think we all see Carlsbad, a city that we can be proud of.

    Derek is so talented. Some of my most treasured pictures are some he did of my kids years ago. Beautiful black and whites. The pictures in this collection are so personal because a local person can look at each picture and know where in our beautiful city of carlsbad that picture was taken. Beautiful!
