My Man Cave (Girls Allowed)

My Man Cave (Girls Allowed)

Although it may seem to my friends and family that I never sit still (true most of the time), I do fully relax when the sun goes down and I have a delicious beer and some nice music in my listening lounge.  Here I am hard at work, relaxing.  Notice the dazzling unicorn hanging in… + Read More

Too many photos…

Too many photos…

I’ve been going through the archives over the past few days, desperately trying to make some sense of the mass quantity of files, slides, negatives in our files and now believe what Jaime’s told me all along…we take a LOT of photos. So in efforts to knock the dust off the ol’ blog, we’ll start… + Read More

Gotta Love Freedom of Speech…

Gotta Love Freedom of Speech…

Something odd that I saw today written on the side of a bus.  The bus was completely covered, head to toe.  Someone sure went through a whole lot of effort to confuse the crap out of me. + Read More

Our Friend Lana the Bonobo

Our Friend Lana the Bonobo

All our closest friends think we’re a bit weird when we talk about the special friendship we have with the Bonobos at the San Diego Zoo and one in particular, a 30 year old female named Lana. But we think it’s pretty special… We’ve been members of the Zoo on and off for about 12 years… + Read More

El Niño = Big Surf

El Niño = Big Surf

This has been quite the winter for surf here on the west coast thanks to the El Niño weather pattern and being a serious weather geek, it’s been really cool to actually experience some proper weather for a change.  The El Niño is, in short, a disruption of the typical weather pattern over the tropical Pacific.  This typically brings… + Read More

Station Fire – Angeles Forest, LA

Station Fire – Angeles Forest, LA

I didn’t realize how crazy the fires were over the past few weeks until a job put us just a few miles east of them.  Here are a few as we passed through Pasadena.  Things got worse before they got better and as of this morning, the fires were 81% contained. + Read More

San Francisco – A Great Place to Leave Your Heart

San Francisco – A Great Place to Leave Your Heart

First time I ever visited San Francisco it was love at first sight.  It was 1995 and a lot has changed since then – for the city and for myself.  The fundamental things that attracted me to the city though – the architecture, the extremes in topography and demography are still present as are my… + Read More

For all the Comic-Con fans

For all the Comic-Con fans

With comic-con just around the corner and the trekkies beginning take over San Diego, I thought I’d post something in the spirit of imagination.  Now, I can’t claim to be a major comic fan and have never actually been to Comic-Con but as a boy, I loved japanese robot cartoons in the pre-transformer style, otherwise… + Read More

Using the force

Using the force

I like taking photos of lots of things.  I’m also, recently into diy light modifications.  I made a mini softbox prototype today and kindly asked Ben Kenobi to sit in for me…straight out of the camera jpeg, no photoshop. + Read More

Mourning the Death of Michael Jackson

Mourning the Death of Michael Jackson

Living so close to Los Angeles, when we heard the news yesterday, we thought we’d zip up after hearing of his death. We wanted to see what it was like when someone so massive and so ubiquitous in our everyday pop conscience dies.  It was weird.  We weren’t there to judge the eccentric fans or… + Read More
