I know I’ve mentioned a few times before that a love of mine has always been taking pictures. It started when I was young and I most definitely got the bug from my Mom, who always had a camera in her hand while we were growing up. (And still now, as it seems we will always be growing up.) In high school I earned the nickname “Kodak” from my friends – and while they complained, everyone knew they could come to me for pictures from fun events.
The older I get and the more I travel the more my enjoyment in the art of photography grows. I love to capture people’s expressions during unforgettable moments, as well as the beauty of the nature around us. We get so used to our day-to-day surroundings that we forget to see The Beauty of it All.
Through the generosity of a wonderful friend of mine, I’ve been able to take photos of my beautiful new surroundings and would love to share those pictures with you. I plan to post more photography more frequently, so I hope you enjoy!

Last week I headed out to Venice Beach with my friend Mike and his surfboard – it was just about 5pm when we got there – my favorite time to start shooting the sun. These are some of the highlights of the shoot! (We’ll start with my personal favorite)
“Chinook Surfer Sun”
I found this photo particularly exciting because I hadn’t yet seen the two Chinook helicopters that were about to fly by. I just caught this one as it made it’s way past the sun. Nick used to work on the Chinook program at Boeing so it was a fun thing to see.
These are my favorite shots from the day – I hope you enjoyed this trip to the beach!
Next up for the photo blog will be Laguna Beach and San Francisco/Napa Valley.
(Special thanks to my Surfer Subject!)
