Photography By 
Deborah Johnson

I have been a "shutter bug" since I was in high school.  I have always enjoyed pictures and decided to become serious about photography around 1997.  I have been in several juried photo competitions and have had my work shown in local galleries.  

I have a restaurant called Pasta Pelican which sells my work.  They are located at 2455 Mariner Square Drive, Alameda, CA.  Pasta Pelican is situated directly on San Francisco Bay and there is a wonderful view of the East Bay Hills as well as downtown Oakland.  Pasta Pelican serves a wide selection of delicious Italian food.  Their phone number is 510-864-7427.

I sincerely hope that you enjoy my photography as much as I have enjoyed taking the pictures.  

I chose this as my signature piece because it catches your attention.  It is called Perspective, because depending on how you look at it, it can be different things.  The actual photo was taken over-looking the Petrified Forest in Arizona.  The sunset is reflected in the roof of the car!  Upside down the picture looks a bit like Earth in outer space during a sci-fi movie.  Together they make a modern art sculpture, and thus its name, PERSPECTIVE!
Me in the ghost town of Bodie, CA.  It was about 38 degrees this day!  I was having some fun goofing around.   "High ho, high ho, it's off to work I go.  With a camera and a tripod, high ho high ho......"  
Some of my other endeavors!  I made this sign for my cabin in New Mexico.  I have always enjoyed metal sculptures and figured I could do that!  So, I took a semester long class at our local junior college where I received an A in my class!  I was using a plasma torch which burns at 14K degrees and using it is like writing with a pen.
