LIght as a Subject – Photo Retrospective by Tom Borello – 1967-2017
A lifelong attempt to showcase light not only as the basic building block of photography but as the main subject of my images. These images have been captured on many types of cameras, from a basic plastic Kodak Brownie to the very exotic Swedish Hasselblad. These images vary from my backyard to Maine, from 10,000 feet to sea level, and from dawn till dusk.

Lucas Valley Road – Bird Land – August – October 2014
At the end of Lucas Valley Road is a sewer treatment plant.  After the water is treated it’s pumped into a number of giant holding ponds. Thousands of birds, all types of birds hunt, breed, rest, fish and hang out there. Some are residents of Marin and many are on their way North or South. I love to walk the ponds at the end of the day. The light is beautiful and subjects abundant. Please enjoy a small selection of my images.

Lake Lagunitas April – June 2014
As a Christmas gift, my family purchased a pass to the Lakes on the Marin Municipal Water District lands. I have been walking Mt. Tam for close to fifty years. My favorite walk has to be around Lake Lagunitas. When the rain finally came to Marin, it poured in April. My son, Matt and my grandson, Vincent were there when the 21″ of rain fell. I was there three days straight. The rain brought Mt. Tam alive.  Over the next three months, I captured many images. Please enjoy this small selection.
