I want to make it back here before I go... This is the San Diego skyline from Coronado. What a beautiful shore. Robin and I took a little trip out to Coronado and took a little self tour of the famous Hotel del Coronado. What a sweet place! If you ever make it to San Diego... Thats where you need to stop by.

I started this day early. I headed out to the Palm Oasis. I've never been to one of those before! I started walking up the canyon made up of huge boulders, cactus, and some wildflowers. It was about a mile up the canyon that I set my eyes on the oasis, a group of palm trees, right in the middle of the desert! It was a sweet experience! Thats why I invite you to share it with me! I had to shoot some video! Also on the way up I ran across a guy shooting photos as well, his name is Jimi. He is a studio manager for Smashbox Studios up in LA. What are the chances...

Let the adventure begin! I made it to the Anza-Borrego Desert today! I stopped in the visitors center and asked for the lowdown on the highlights of the park. I was pointed north and headed to Henderson Canyon. There I encountered this statue (there were statues all over Borrego Springs, the city in the valley of the mountains) what an interesting character. I'm going to use him for some images....

Well I have a long weekend coming up and I decided I wanted to get out and take some pictures. It was a toss up between the desert and the coastline but the weather made the decision for me. I was off to the desert! The desert is such a mysterious place of wonder. It is so different from where I grew up it just fascinates me. Lets see what kind of an adventure this can turn into!

Today I made a sharper pinhole lens. The first one was a little too blurry for what I wanted the images to look like. Here is one of the images I took today. Also, today I checked out the first proof of my new project! I'm excited! I should have it finished and rolled out real soon! Keep checking back!

Today I was channeling the spirit of MacGyver and created a pinhole lens for my Digital SLR. All I needed was a Coke can, body cap, a Camera Dan pin, and some Duct tape! Haha but seriously folks thats all I used to make this image. It was about a three second exposure. I should have some more images to show you soon!

I shot some of these tonight as an experiment. Lets see how they turn out. This type of image has always intrigued me. The night just captivates me, it surrounds me, engulfs me. It is a sanctuary for those who seek seclusion out in the open world. It comes and goes as the sun does. The relationship they have is unlike any other. Then just throw the moon in the mix and Damn! You have yourself one insane astronomical party! Lets join!
