Day 155 – Wedding & Baptism

Today was a great day!  I was asked to photograph a wedding for a friend along with a subsequent baptism.  The wedding was at 8AM in Lincoln Heights, the baptism was to start around 1030AM followed by a recption.  What a great time!  Such a warm and welcoming community.  My dad has been diagnosed with… Read More

Day 123 – Golden Tegu

My son had a game tonight, a fun mixup with the boys baseball team playing the girls softball team.  It was great fun watching the boys dress up in silly garb and have a general overall good time.  While waiting for the game to start, there was a gentleman deep in right had the Golden… Read More

Day 122 – Train

Tonight’s a double header – I missed last night again but any reason I give, whether valid or not given the moment I decided it was time to shoot would just be an excuse.  So, since I delayed my actions, tonight’s image makeup for last night is the train being tested while I sat at a… Read More

Day 101 – Baptism

Today we had baptisms at church and I shot the 9A service.  This shot is of the bowl we use.  Our church, Pacific Crossroads, has three services: 9A, 11A, 5P.  The morning services are held on the Westside in Barnum Hall Auditorium at SAMOHI (Santa Monica High School), and the 5P service meets downtown off… 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 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

Day 64 – Light Paint

Today was a long day, woke up at 3AM and got caught up with my ‘day job’, had coffee with a friend who helped remind me to not just live in ‘awareness’, but actually make decisions followed by actions, watched my son’s baseball game (his third this week), and then closed out the day with… Read More

Day 54 – Baseball Season!

Baseball season is finally upon us.  It’s hard to believe that Alex is now in high school and no longer is eligible for little league until high school is over.  Once over, he will slide to Pony just in time for playoffs and All Stars.  In the meantime, today was his first ever foray into high… Read More

Day 8 – High School Basketball

Today was a great day.  Work was very busy, I’m grateful for employment and for the flexibility I have in my schedule to spend time with my kids.  Today, I worked from home and my 2 year crawled all over me, laughing, giggling, and climbing. Around nap time for him, I headed out to pick… Read More

Day 6 – Santa Monica Statue

I’ve driven by this statue 1,000 times; Santa Monica statue standing tall at the end of Wilshire Blvd, overlooking Santa Monica Bay (technically, she’s overlooking Wilshire Blvd. since her back is to the bay), but have never really stopped to appreciate her, nor have taken the time to understand her history (or the history of… Read More
