Alaskan Cruise

Back in May, my Mom treated all of us to an Alaskan Cruise Vacation!  We cruised the Norwegian Pearl early in whale watching season. We flew to Seattle and cruised to Juneau, Skagway, Ketchikan, Glacier Bay, and Victoria, Canada.  The trip was filled with lots of eating, shopping, whale watching, train riding, glacier viewing, more eating, and more eating! Here are some photos from the trip! Washy-washy!

The trip was a lot more fun than expected. It truly gave me an appreciation nature and an understanding of how much damage our culture has done to Mother Earth. Yah, depressing.

The Second Half of 2013

The second half of 2013 was a difficult one for me, personally.  My father passed away in late July and I haven’t been the same since.  I don’t think anyone is ever the same when a loved one passes away.  And this is the first time I truly experienced this feeling.  I stopped posting entries on this blog and focused on my hobbies to get me by.  Now that a new year has turned, I hope to get back to posting more daily entries.  Hopefully 2014 will be a better year with new experiences!  I may post a few special entries on events that occurred during the second half of 2013:  Photography, Vegas trip, Disneyland adventures, Hawaii trip, F1 USGP, America’s Cup, and the purchase of a new Porsche!  In the meantime, here are some photos from the second half of 2013 in no particular order…

Sorry for the lack of posts!

I have been busy with work. Our office recently moved, so when I get home, I’ve been pretty tired. In the little time I have away from work, I have been trying to go out and shoot. Between the iPhone 5, Fuji x100s, and the Nikon D4, I have been taking a lot of pictures. We attended a few family gatherings, saw the America’s Cup, did a little street shooting in San Francisco, saw the Diebenkorn exhibit at the DeYoung Museum, bought a few new pair of shoes (check them out here), upgraded my home server and network, ate, ate, ate, and ate! Here are a few random pictures from the past few weeks:
