Uncorked! Laguna Beach Fiat 500e Release Party

February 13th, 2013

I was contacted by the marketing department over a FIAT to take some photos of their first public release of their new fully electric model. Along with a few local businesses, FIAT sponsored Uncorked! in Laguna Beach. Originally a wine tasting event, the 500e received a warm welcome from the crowd.

I attended my first parade this year. It was the Golden Dragon Parade on Broadway for the the Chinese New Year.

I was invited by Garrick of “They Shoot Film” an art collective spanning across the country.

We started the morning off at the Golden Dragon Restaurant for some dim-sum.

After our delicious lunch, we hit the streets for some good ol’ fashion, people watching.

Red was the theme of the day, however that doesn’t mean it lacked colors.  The people of Los Angeles brought their own eclectic twist on the Festival.

Everyone and their mother was there! Street Vendors, photographers, families, high school bands, people who brought Japanese umbrellas, the mayor, and kung fu fighting kids!

I had been in the market for a new car now and I’ve recently fallen for the Honda S2000. So I called up my friend Gary and asked him if I could test drive his car.

One thing led to another and I was talked into attending a small car-meet in Long Beach.

I haven’t been to one of these in forever, it was a delight reliving some good ol’ memories.

We found this cool location and did a quick impromptu shoot before it got too cold.

A rainy Socal day.

December 20th, 2010

Took a rainyday trip to Disneyland and finished the day off at the new Porto’s Cafe & Bakery in Downey.

 

Rainy days are just my favorite, to me it’s the only thing that Southern California really misses. That and snow (but that’s for another day)

I’ve been editing all weekend and it was time for me to get out and get some fresh air.

This incredibly wet weekend provided a great opportunity to get some people watching photos at Disneyland!

As I walked and walked around the park I realized how creepy the Disney employees are in their yellow rain coats.

After Disneyland, We took a trip down to the new Downey Porto’s Bakery & Cafe in Downey. I got to taste some of their delicious treats for the first time.

They had great customer service, who was willing to comply with my newbiness and walked with us through their extremely long line-up of delectable pastries. My favorite of for the day was the Guava Cheese Rolls (sorry no photo, it was gone too fast!)

The weather may be frightful to some. But I enjoyed my day very much. Hopefully this was interesting enough to keep you here!

On a whim, I drove down to Long Beach. It had taken a while to get the camera bag packed up, so I left the house at about 5:35am with only a bit of time before the sun went up.

The sky had gone from black to a dark orange. I wasn’t going to let the sun beat me there.

I parked at the nearest possible location for a good photo.

The sun rose. The moment it peeked over the horizon would be forever burned in my memory.

After an exhilarating morning drive, I felt a stillness. I clutched my bag and pulled out my camera…

After witnessing this, I made my over to one of my favorite shooting locations, The pier. Where I was able to observe one surfer waiting for the swell to come in. He was the only person at the beach other than me.  He noticed me on the pier through a nod we both knew that it was only a matter of time before more people would come.

The waves crashed against the pier, loud and roaring like a lion. I got on the sand and walked on. I kept the camera in hand for whatever came my way.

During my walk, I met these surfers, they were still in high school, I suppose the beach seemed like a better idea than the classroom for today. It reminds me of the antics I used to do when I was their age. One of the times I did ditch, was to this location.

Before I knew it. It was 1100am and the lack of sleep had finally caught up to me. Time to go home.
