You’re Kidding Me, Right?!

Today I was out shooting video and got fried alive. Terrible sunburn! Can you believe?! I get burned in the cool breeze off the ocean on a completely overcast day?! When will I learn?! Here are two pictures from the day…     One good thing from the day (actually this was a wonderful day all around), over 20,000 steps… Continue reading

Grand Canyon Pano

I blogged before about the death-defying adventure that was shooting this pano. No, I’m not kidding. (Check out the post about the first attempt to shoot this pano.) A few hours later, after the wind seemed a little less ferocious but even colder, and even though the light was quickly fading, I decided to give it a second go, and… Continue reading

I’ve walked the Satterlee Breakwater separating the bay from the cove many times, but on this night, with the thick darkness, I felt a slight uneasiness and a need to carefully watch my… Continue reading

Sunday Hike: Coastal Trail

I love hiking the Pacific Coast trail! Yesterday was a great hike. The weather was perfect! Over 5 miles and up 49 floors-worth of steps! While you will probably not be able to see it in the small pictures below, they do show the Golden Gate Bridge in the far left. Below is the map of our hike. We started… Continue reading
