5:30pm on February 28, 2010 in Joshua Tree, CA.

In today's visit to Joshua Tree, I made it a point to stay through the sunset. I'm really glad I did because I got a few great shots in those last 10 minutes or so. I especially liked this one :-)

2:00pm on February 27, 2010 at home.

Today it rained. and rained. and rained. and then it hailed. and then it rained some more.
When I looked outside at my drowning plants, I did see that they looked beautiful with the raindrops. After that I was pretty glad it rained today :-)

random order... sometimes you just need a reminder of what's right in front of you every day :-)

3:00pm on February 25, 2010 in Vista, CA.

What can I say? I was bored at work today. All I could think of was Thoreau's famous words: "the mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation." boy did I feel that way today!
On the upside, I snapped this cool pic at my desk! Maybe next time I have a super slow day I'll do more notes...

April 01, 2007 in Los Angeles, CA.

I'm sure I mentioned already that I've been in a hibernating mood lately. Unfortunately,  I wasn't inspired by anything at home today for the daily pic. So I decided to take a walk down memory lane and fix up an old photo. This is from a loft in Downtown Los Angeles about 3 years ago. I loved that the building had retained its industrial details (like these awesome honeycomb-wired glass windows).



~4:00pm on February 23, 2010 in Vista, CA.

Things have been slow at work lately. These days I spend a large part of my day looking out the window and daydreaming.... I'm very thankful to sit next to a window so I can dream my day away! :-)



5:30pm on February 22, 2010 in Del Mar, CA.

I can't resist taking pictures on my way home sometimes, especially during this time of the year when I drive home during the gorgeous sunsets!
Still, taking memorable pics of the ocean/beach is one of the most difficult things I've ever tried to photograph. Go ahead, try it. It's not as easy as it sounds...

1:30pm on February 20, 2010 in La Jolla Shores, CA

It's beautiful outside today, and the fluffy clouds in the sky just make it the perfect day for some pics. I chose this picture because it almost looks like a painting... and I loved the pop of red from the woman's jacket :-)

8:00pm on February 19, 2010 at home.

I was at a loss for what to photograph today, and the fact that I've been slowly turning into a hermit isn't helping. Pretty soon I'll have documented every object in my apartment.
Object of the day: glossy canvas of the Matisse reproduction in my bedroom. I love that it has a canvas texture... good job Ikea :-)

Playtime on Photoshop! :-)
**note: the original image of the woman on the couch is not mine. it's an ad for furniture that i really like.
**note 2: the red color of the ad image is NOT faked. it's a black and white picture, but the photo came out in red and black. it was an accidental technique discovery. i love those :-)
**note 3: i could totally see this as an event poster!

It's nice to take a different way home every once in a while... it makes you see things in a new light again. This tower caught my eye against the beautiful sky.

~5:45pm on February 8, 2010 in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA.

Ok, I admit it. I flaked on snapping a new picture today. Can you forgive me??
However... in the constant attempt to get a good picture of the beach/horizon/ocean/sunset, I did a little editing on some pics I took about a week ago on my way home from work. I liked how this one turned out. I like how the warmth of the setting sun still translates even though it's a sepia toned image.

This is a clay statue I brought back from India. Even though it's gotten a bit beat up over the past couple of years, I do still love that profile...



~11:00pm on February 12, 2010 in (South Park) San Diego, CA.

This is the closest I will get this year to giving someone a valentine. Happy Valentine's Day :-)

In a sleepy haze, i managed to remember to snap a picture for the day. i gotta say these tomatoes look pretty darn good :-)

~9:00pm on February 8, 2010 at Casbah, San Diego, CA.

I saw two really good bands perform at Casbah tonight - April Smith & the Great Picture Show... and Langhorne Slim. ah, Casbah, how i've missed you!
This was a pre-show picture of some of the equipment on stage.

February 6, 2010

Ok, so i slipped. i didn't take a photo yesterday so I pulled an old photo from the archives and did some post-production editing for presentation. It was taken in November, 2007 in Goa, India. This sign was across the street from our hotel and directed people to the sandy path to the beach.

I couldn't help but take a few photos on my way home today. This Harley shop looked great on the side of the road!

Ok, i admit it. today was Lost night at home. so i was scrambling a bit (get it? scrambling! heehee) for a photo op. but you really can't go wrong with a carton of eggs :-)


ps: when did eggs start getting stamped for expiration dates?! and yes, i realize this one is expired.

The highlight of my evening is getting to curl up with my latest book for an hour or two :-)
