Just watched @tedforbes video on photographing the Grand Canyon and now Im inspired to make another trip down there. I have had bad luck in the past because just about every time I have made the 5 hour drive down there, someplace is on fire and the smoke tends to find its way to the canyon. I just don’t have a lot of pictures of the area and plus, the Grand Canyon is pretty well photographed so how do you take a pic thats unique?
Horsies! Its 1am and I can’t sleep. Today I was able to stop by my Fav Mandarin restaurant called New King on Zeedijk and my stomach is still full of duck. Their duck egg rolls is worth the trip here alone. Tonight, dinner at Toro Dorado for a real Kobe Rib Eye steak and a kinder egg for dessert. #illegalcontraband
Last minute work emergency trip to Amsterdam. Told my work I wasn’t doing that 24hr 3 layover flight again. This time only 13 hours with a layover in DTW. Its 5am Monday morning and Ill be here for 48 hours and fly back home. Tried to sneak an extra day to revisit a couple of places but it wasn’t meant to be. Good to be back to my fav city, wish I had more time. Gotta turn my phone off until I get back home #travel#traveler#travelgram#worktravellife#amsterdam#hotel#hotelroom
September 2011. Just moved to Vegas from Austin, Texas, and this was the first time I took my camera out after moving here and caught a storm as monsoon season was winding down. Got the milky way, some storm clouds, and a little strand of lightning.
Excuse me, it’s the Anaheim Angels. There is only one baseball team in LA. So I guess he wants to be in LA without being in the spotlight is my only guess on why he chose the Angels. With him out of the picture and going to the AL and Stanton not going to SF, the Dodgers can now focus on signing Morrow and getting another starter. I am not going to be upset if we sign Darvish, if he is cheap. I believe Honey and the rest of the pitching staff can fix him and we all know the front office loves to pick up projects. #dodgers#ladodgers#welovela#losangelesdodgers#gododgers#baseball#freeagency#losangeles#wintermeetings#mlb#baseball
Some people chop down trees and bring them into their homes so they can cover them with lights and shiny shit. I prefer to just go outside and spend some time with the trees. Go out and hug a tree, it’s good for you.
I don’t like change..... about a year ago I made to decision to dress a little more age appropriate. Can’t go through life wearing converse and super hero t shirts. I am not a fan of “fancy” shoes because they feel like torture devices. Under recommendation, I tried Thorogood boots. I found a pair, and they felt like little pillows of awesome and I guess I became a boot guy. Fast forward a year later and come to find out the boots I like are discontinued!!! So I panicked and started but up whatever I can find. Whelp I have 5 pairs now so I should be good between now and until the day I die.... #smellmyfeet#thorogoodboots#thorogood#newkicks#boots#boot#shoes#leather#heritagecollection#bootguy#fashion#changes
I am fatigued. Seems like just about everyday I have to call, email, comment, fill out a form, something to keep this dumpster fire of an administration from screwing us over. But the fight continues….
The tour inside Lehman Cave at Great Basin National Park. I was surprised with the size of the tour group in the middle of the week. Great Basin isn’t exactly on the beaten path. Because it was the only tour of the day for the Grand Palace tour, we stayed underground for almost 2 hours. Had plenty of time to take pictures and ask questions.
I’ve been a Land Rover guy just about all my life. My first car was a 1989 RRC, then my ’04 Disco 2, and then a LR3 (which I sold). After hearing about the new Jeep JL, Jeep has now piqued my interest. I love the Discovery 5, but pricing one out equalled my yearly salary so It’s def out of my price range. A JL Rubicon, with a diesel, and manual trans is “reasonable”. Land Rover supposedly will be bringing the redesigned Defender to the US to complete against the wrangler, but I am not getting my hopes up until I see one in person and look at the price tag. Only question is quality on the Jeep, Lets be honest, Chrysler isn’t exactly known for quality and now being funded by Italians, I am not sure what kind of a shit show owning a Jeep is going to be. #landrover#landroverdiscovery#discovery#discovery2#disco2#rover#jeep#offroad
I haven’t posted in a little while because I have been dealing with the flu and a tooth ache since Thanksgiving. All I have been doing is working, sleeping, and trying to eat. Today I decided to go through the gazillions of photos I took during my vacation. I was looking through my photos from the LVAS event on Nov 18th at Spring Mountain Ranch SP, and I actually caught a meteor. The Leonids are pretty sparse so I was surprised I caught anything.
I haven’t been motivated to shoot this weekend. I needed a vacation to recover from my vacation. I worked on some quality of life projects. One was trying to figure what what to do with my intervalometer. Normally I just wrap the cable around the tripod head and just let it hang but if it’s windy, it bounces around, and puts a little too much stress on the cable. I looked online for a holder and they were $15 - $20. More than I wanted to pay. I thought to myself, the intervalometer isn’t much wider/thicker than a Glock magazine. I grabbed a @511tactical mag pouch from my range bag and a velcro strap boom, now I have a holder. #imcheapaf#cameragear#projects#easypeasy#511tactical#redneckingenuity#photo#photography#keepingbusy
Revisiting my Yellowstone trip and still finding little nuggets. I forgot I took this. Living in the desert, we don’t see much fog, so it was cool experiencing it and trying to figure out how to capture it. #yourshotphotographer
