i love the northwest

This Sunday we had a break from shooting and we just chilled at Peters moms house in Seattle. Watched a lot of football, which I'm totally not into, but its really fun to watch everyone get so into it. Anyway, they live in this awesome little neighborhood right outside of Seattle. We came up here at the perfect time because all the trees are colorful, and more importantly, I had the privlege of watching the annual neighborhood Halloween Parade!! All the kids on the block get in their costumes and march down the streets to halloween music playing out of a boombox! Everyone sets up their lawn chairs and watches the show. I took a bunch of pics, here are some for your enjoyment. Gotta love the Northwest!

I'm in Seattle for the next few days helping my buddy Peter with a big photoshoot. Sorry if I don't respond to emails or phone calls, I'll be flying back home on Tuesday night while all the trick or treaters are collecting buttloads of candy.

Salton Sea, CA = Weirdest place on earth

If you've even been there, then you know exactly what I mean by my title "Salton Sea, CA = Weirdest place on earth".

I was working on a photo job yesterday out east about halfway to the Salton Sea from San Diego. We wrapped the job at about 5PM, so I decided to jet out to the Salton Sea and do a bit of night shooting and car camping.

I ended up shooting a little and exploring a lot. The place is such a wasteland. Abandoned yacht clubs, hotels, broken down cars and buses, and pretty much anything else you can find just scatted around everywhere out there. And add very polluted water with intensely gross smells. It's an interesting experience.

Even though I didn't shoot much, the trip was totally worth it because I actually witnessed with my own two eyes a meteor burning up as it entered the earths atmosphere. It was so cool. Basically it looked like a huge bright fireball coming out of the sky dropping flaming chunks of debris as it left a long trails of sparks behind it. I couldn't get the right lens out soon enough before it burned into nothing so I don't have any pics. You'll have to use your imagination until the next time I see a flaming meteor.

Anyway, here are a few of the photos I took. Also check out the photos from the last time HERE

miramar air show 2006!

Last weekend some friends, Bethany, and I got to experience the Miramar Air Show once again, which is always lots of fun. Check out last years post here.

My photo buddies Peter, Nate, and Andrew all came down to San Diego just hang out for the weekend and hit up the airshow. Good times. Andrew has some sweet airshow pics up on his blog here.

I've got lots of photos to post so bear with me here...

Snapping away:

People watching is one of my favorite things at the airshow... haha.
