May 2013 in Photography

Just when I thought April came and went without a peep, May seemed to whiz by with even more turbo. Only after reviewing the photos I’ve taken during the month did I realize why that was. It was choke full of activities both on the work front, and in the various passionate endeavors I engaged…

April 2013 in Photography

They say to travel when you’re young. But you know, I think you can travel at any age in your life- and to any place. It’s like re-watching a movie you saw as a kid and having a better/different understanding of it on the second go around. 1) I re-visit Las Vegas, and this time…

All over Saturday

Variety is the spice of Life! That’s what they say, right? Well, Saturday didn’t say it, it yelled it! My morning started an Arts Expo where I got to meet a lot of interesting organizations that provide resources to educators to bring arts back into schools. We need more of this! You can’t knock on…

October 2012 in Photography

Here I am, six days into November, posting some photos that stood out to me in October. I’m going to pull the “Better late than never” card. Hawazaahhh! 1) San Francisco. Closing night of The Strange Case of Citizen de la Cruz. Was the City ready to send us off into our post-show blues? 2) Color and…

An empty wallet but a full heart

For most artists, balancing basic life needs and passionate artistic endeavors is a constant see-saw. It’s a difficult road, which I suspect many artists never quite make –being able to support themselves doing what they’re passionate about. But taking it day-by-day is a great step. I started the day off with a good read. And…

Officially Twenty Six Years Young!

It’s been years since I’ve actually thrown a party for my birthday.  The photo to the right was probably the last one I remember having where I was relatively carefree.  In fact, I remember stressing out about which toppings to have on the pizza we were going to order!  It seems trite to engage in…

Tagged teamed at the Barbershop

Mondays have a reputation for being the least enjoyable day of the week. At least Wednesday gets the cool nickname like “hump day” and weekends are, in most cases, a time for R & R. Today’s Monday has been an exception. I wasn’t on the schedule but I swooped in to work to swap clothing…

The Phantom of the Opera (SF 2008)

THREE words: PHENOMENAL, MEMORABLE and BEAUTIFUL. I could go on writing volumes about how mind blowing the tech was, or how elaborate the costumes were; I could probably chat your ear off about how intelligent the staging was, or how memorizing the cast was. I could even go on about how this production has provided…

My San Francisco reTreat pt. I

A friend and I decided to venture into San Francisco a couple weeks to take some photography. Well, she did the photography (Canon FT series) and I took some cinematography. We had a great time, and there were plenty of minor events scattered about the city to keep us amused. Here are some of the…

My San Francisco reTreat Itinerary

I find that when I have a lot of information to write about it’s easier to just write a list of the main things I’d like to talk about. Go figure. So here’s my list! My San Francisco reTreat pt. I 1. BART Hustle 2. Noah’s Bagels 3. Homeless Man 4. Ginny + Hans Thacher…

Don’t mess with the bus driver…

On the way home the other night a random thing happened. It was roughly 11pm and there weren’t a lot of passengers. At some point during the trip this couple with cases of what looked to be, instruments, walked in and had a seat. They were careful to make sure their equipment wasn’t blocking the…

It’s Karma-ing back to me!

I believe in karma. And I’d like to think that Karma believes in me. Cheesy? Yep. Sincere? Definitely. Today on the bus, people were starting to pack it in like sardines so at some point I offered an older woman my seat. It seemed common enough for me, considering that, where I grew up, if…
