Cloudy day in Malibu

20140126-122704.jpg

The cloudy and cool weather enticed Amy and me to drive to Leo Carrillo State Park Beach in Malibu. It was sprinkling for a few minutes, no big deal.

Instead of waiting to process the photo in Lightroom, I decided to choose this one for Camera+, while I’m on the beach.

Happy Sunday.

View of brush fire smoke from Sierra Madre

I walked a few blocks to Kersting Court in Sierra Madre to take these photos this morning. According to KABC-TV Los Angeles, there’s a brush fire in the foothills above Glendora and Azusa that was reported around 5:50am. It’s now 125 acres and growing.

Best of luck and safety to the 200+ firefighters that hustled out there.

Lake Havasu vacation with Amy, Part 1

In July last year, I went to Lake Havasu with my girlfriend, Amy, on our first vacation together. We did our best to deal with the heat, and it was relaxing to spend time with her.

These photos are from our first day in Lake Havasu. Amy was a trooper to watch me take random photos around London Bridge, and I think I was drenched from the heat after thirty minutes. (Someone asked if I was from around there. Oh, aren’t you clever?)

Thanks to the kindness of a tourist taking our photo by the bridge, I made an appearance in one of the photos. 🙂

Geeky side note: I was considering excluding a couple photos to feature at the top of this post, leading into the gallery below, but the photo carousel for WordPress.com is really slick, so I’ll just leave it as is.
