First post in a week. Man, I am just SO busy lately. Granted, the first few days after my last post, I was out of town, but since returning, I have been one busy guy. Catching up on work, catching up on processing of photos, and catching up on life sure keeps me busy. But life is good so I can't complain. Plus, a week from now, I'll be in Disneyland!
So what have I been doing? Well, Tuesday, we went down to the Central Coast to go visit family. It is just so relaxing for us there and the added bonus of having such a great family down there makes it a doubly wonderful time. Really, if we could move there, we would. My cousin, Jeremy, likes to collect unique instruments so I took the opportunity to take a picture of his Oud, an Egyptian guitar. I could have taken a wide view of it so you could see the whole thing, but I felt this was more unique. I am pretty happy it came out like this since I was pretty tipsy on tequila when I took it!
The following day was ocean day. We went and had brunch on the pier - love me some fish 'n chips. We walked around Morro Bay and then followed it up with a drive to Pismo. We saw the Monarch butterflies and their yearly migration and then went to the beach. This was Winston's first time on a beach and he LOVED it! I took a bunch of pics that I absolutely love, but this one won out in the end for my favorite.
But like I said, I am in love with the pics I took and there was much more than just 1 good one. Check out the slideshow here. I promise you, you'll find some cool pics.
Thursday was the return trip home, but the fun continued a little upon our return when my folks came over so my dad could try my new tequila. While I was waiting for him to come over, I took a quick shot of the bottles. Looks like an advertisement should the company wish to contact me.
Friday was a reminder that vacation was over as I put in an extremely long day at work. I keep this up, I am going to need a recharge in my batteries.
Saturday was an awesome day. It started bright and early with a Manchester United game at 430am. Why didn't I just TIVO it? I have no will power not to look up a score of a game when I know it has already been completed. But they won this HUGE game and it made waking up SO worth it! The awesomeness continued throughout the day and concluded with a nice dinner downtown with Jess. It was Second Saturday so there were people everywhere, both normal and SO not normal. I went out of my box for the first time and photographed a complete stranger, with his permission, of course.
Sunday was filled with watching soccer and working on pictures. I finally got all the wedding pictures done and as a side note, the mother of the groom, called me to say she couldn't be happier with them. That made me feel so good. I still have a blog post coming on the experience. Anyways, time got the better of me and by the time I thought of taking a picture, I was in no mood for something artsy. I opted for something quick and fun instead. I call it, "Incognito."
Which brings us to today, Valentine's Day. I wanted to get Jessica's help so I woke up before six that why I could get her to help me before she left for her 12 hour shift at work. For being half asleep, I am happy with it!
Whew...sorry for the lengthy post, but I had to catch up!
