St. Patrick’s Day Parade

8 Sep

Obviously I’m quite behind on these, but better late than never, right? I’ve never been to a St. Patrick’s Day parade before, so it was a lot of fun. There were some new, interesting things that I hadn’t seen at previous parades I have been to. It was great to see some actual Irish people/things, as opposed to what I normally see on St. Patrick’s day 😉

San Diego Bay Parade of Lights

4 Jan

First off, I’m super excited that my camera is awesome enough to take night photos of moving things (boats), even though they weren’t moving that fast.  This camera is a MAJOR upgrade over my last camera, and it makes me happy every day.  So, may I present to you the San Diego Bay Parade of Lights, aka Christmas boats (what I call it).  And for anyone in the area (next year), I highly recommend watching them from Coronado, since you get the lovely view of the city in the background.  Of note – one of these is not a boat but a person on a decked out bike that passed in front of us several times, if you can spot him.

As always, click on any of the photos to view them larger.

Happy Holidays!

I’ve been bad at posting, so I figured I should post these photos before it was TOO far past Christmas…they are my “Merry Christmas from San Diego and Portland!” photos. 🙂  I hope you all had wonderful holidays and enjoyed them, however you spent them!

Additionally, I have an announcement!  I had an epic realization yesterday; that what I choose to do normally in life – go to EVERYTHING I can go to (fun events, restaurants, locations, etc.) and take photos of all of it – is exactly what newspaper photographers do.  I’m currently in love with the newspaper in San Diego (U-T San Diego), they’re fantastic.  So my goal is to get a job doing that, ideally for them, or if I can do that freelance too, that’s fine.  What actually started all of this was my email from San Diego Fashion Week about ways to get involved, and one of them was to get a press pass.  I’m sure I could get one if I actually worked for the newspaper, but I can also get one just as a blogger, so what I am going to do is to continue to do what I do, but I will actually be more proactive about it and ESPECIALLY more proactive about posting them on here.  So this blog will start getting a lot more posts about awesome stuff in San Diego!  Please follow, if you aren’t already, so I will be deemed worthy enough to get a press pass to Fashion Week!  That is my goal for 2015, my resolution if you will, and I would DIE to have one.  Thank you all so much for your support!christmas (1 of 1)-2christmas (1 of 1)
