In Portola Valley: 'Images of the American West'


Portola Valley nature and travel photographer David Cardinal will exhibit his images of the American West at Allegro Gallery in Portola Valley through Dec. 31.

The gallery is at 3130 Alpine Road, #370, in Portola Valley.

For this show, Mr. Cardinal has selected images from Texas, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Alaska and California. Subjects range from scenics to rare bird species with a variety of "Old West" subjects as well.

"I was particularly inspired this spring by a road trip to the Western United States that my daughter Annie and I took along the lines of Steinbeck's 'Travels with Charley,'" he said.

"While we didn't lodge in an RV like Steinbeck did, we did amble our way through parks and small towns with an eye for appreciating special sights that may not be there much longer."

Mr. Cardinal leads small-group photo safaris to Africa, Asia and Alaska, as well as to destinations in the continental United States. He specializes in rare and endangered animals and environments.

The Allegro Gallery hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
