Day 90 – Wheeeee!

Today we had a nice ‘Afternoon Delight’ with a little bounce house fun!  Not a bad way to break up the ‘monotony’ of the week for a two year old! (like any day is monotonous for an active and imaginative two year old!).  As I’m learning the appropriate “creatively correct” exposure, not just the perfect… Read More

Day 89 – Lifeguard Tower 7

I made it to Day 90 of an exposure per day!  Tonight is pretty windy and there’s a huge American Flag that I was going to shoot tonight, but somehow, I got turned around and ended up heading North on PCH (Pacific Coast Highway).  So before the twilight blue was completely gone, I pulled over… Read More

Day 87 – Peace

Gave double exposure a try today, blend mode is “Light”.  First picture was daughter’s hand in a peace sign against a bright sky, with the second exposure being a rose. “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” John 15:5 Happy resurrection… Read More

Day 86 – Footprints

Mommy and Li’l Jammers footprints side by side.  We had a wonderful day playing beach volleyball with the family, walking along the beach, playing football, petting doggies, and eating a lot of food!  As we were walking along the beach, my wife noticed our little one’s footprints and walked along side.  It reminds of the… Read More

Day 85 – San Diego Zoo Safari Park

Shots of Safari What an incredible day!  Was roughly 80 degrees at the Safari Park, no clouds, blue sky, and quite the range of animals; from delicate butterflies to rhinos.  So picking today’s image is quite a challenge.  But, I’m going with the cheetahs as they are relatively new and the cubs were recently born… Read More

Day 83 – Venice Beach

Venice Beach is one interesting place, especially at night.  The “nomads, hobos, vagabonds, urban campers, bohemians, hippies, housefree, houseless, van dwellers, travelers, etc.,” as expressed by @StandAloneHobo, the tourists, the teenage runaways, the locals, and the yuppies hitting the local restaurants.  I love the artwork/graffiti throughout the city.  The “Venice” sign illuminates the little main… Read More

Day 82 – Malibu

Took the boys into Malibu tonight to enjoy the sunset.  I figured with daylight savings time, the extended daylight hours I would miss traffic.  I was wrong!  With the California Incline still closed, going down Chattaqua was tight.  We were originally going to head up to Leo Carillo to see the tide pools, cave and… Read More

Day 80 – Urban Camping?

Living in Southern California where the weather is pretty nice nearly all year long, we have our issues with “homeless”.  It’s an interesting dilemma as I think the homeless can be broken out into three major buckets: A) Mentally ill, B) Addicts/Alcoholics (probably a sub classification of “A”), and C) those that are down due… Read More

Day 73 – Johnnie’s

I met with a friend in Culver City tonight and on the way home, I drove by Johnnie’s.  I’ve eaten here a few times and have driven by several times.  I don’t know why, maybe it’s the neon and the nostalgia, but there’s something about this place that I’m drawn to.  Didn’t eat here tonight,… Read More

Day 70 – Li’l Jammer!

I had to quickly produce a head shot today of myself and so I solicited the help of my assistant, James.  It was such a blast with him.  In order to capture an image of myself, I set the timer to 10″, would press the shutter, run to my seat and take the photo.  Between… Read More

Day 69 – Ingo’s

Something about this building I really enjoy.  I love the little Vienna bakery – they have the most amazing cakes.  I’m captivated by the art deco feel of the building and the neon sign. I was on my way home and quickly pulled over to snap this one.  Unfortunately, I only had my 70-200, so… Read More
