Disneyland: Soundsational Parade

So I accidentally ended up watching Mickey's Soundsational Parade twice in the same day (walking traffic comes to a standstill when the thing is going on). This, here, is the float for Mary Poppin's Spoonful of Rhythm (the finale) as it made its way toward Main Street (the Matterhorn ride is in the background). Overall, I thought the parade was catchy (definitely better at night), but should have used a different song for Lion King's float. ;)

Disneyland: Columbia

Because it was cloudy the day I went to Disneyland, I originally started processing this as a black and white. But at the last minute I changed my mind and switched back to color. I actually like the really skewed result afterward. I took a reverse shot of the boat as well which had the name "Columbia" written on the back, but I preferred this angle more. :)

Disneyland: Tea Cup Ride

I've never actually been on this ride as an adult, but it sure is one of my favorite things to photograph while at Disneyland. I didn't have a tripod on me, but I would have loved to have done a long exposure of the whirling tea cups.

I can't remember if the lanterns above light up at night. Now, THAT would really make an awesome picture.

Clouds 1/27/13

Yay! The sun came out today, but we still had rain on and off throughout the day and so I got to snap this!

Unfortunately, I missed the two photowalks that occurred yesterday in LA (why did they both have to schedule on the day I was going to Disneyland!). Oh well. I'll dig through those shots over the next few days. I don't know about you guys, but I'm awfully tired of these cloud shots. lol.

Clouds 1/24/13

It rained most of this morning and it looks like the sun is temporarily peaking out before it rains again tonight. I'm hoping it clears up before this weekend now that I have outdoor plans. ;)

I'm sort of stuck right now. I have a client whom I promised photos for by last weekend but I never finished because I'm just not interested in editing those photos. Some were excellent, but the majority were mediocre. It's not that I'm afraid to hand them to her, it's just I'm not inspired to sit down and edit the 1000 photos. Ever had this dilemma? How do you force yourself to just crank them out? It seems money, reputation, personal motivation just ain't cutting it.

Grey Clouds - 01/23/13

Finally!!! After weeks and weeks of waiting for weather, it looks like the clouds are rolling in again. I've been pretty busy lately with a shoot at the Urban Light exhibit, a baby photography shoot, and teaching someone how to use Photoshop CS2 (I hope you all took advantage of the free download made available by Adobe). This weekend is going to be pretty exciting photography-wise as well, and I hope to share those photos by Monday of next week. Here's hoping that it rains this weekend!

Clouds 01/06/13

Yesterday had such amazing clouds (apparently it even rained in nearby San Diego), so I had to share another cloud shot from yesterday again. Regrettably, today looks like a return to hum drum blue skies in Los Angeles.

The sky and clouds from my balcony this morning. Hope you all are having a lovely weekend!

Apparently the price of stamps is going up this month, which happily coincided with me running out of stamps after mailing out all my holiday cards last month. So, naturally, I stocked up on a few cute Disney ones that should last me until 2018. Ha!

"Kiss Me. New Year's Eve. 2013"

Happy New Year, my friends!

I figured we'd start the new year off with something a little saucy. I actually tried capturing this panty from multiple locations (hanging off a clothespin, hanging off a bed post), but in the end I went back to my trusty heels .

So before you start getting weird ideas concerning my lingerie, I thought I'd explain that I was actually in a Victoria's Secret store on New Year's eve, shopping for a belated-Christmas present for a bestie (she was out of town during the holidays). Apparently, my purchase qualified me to receive a free panty (seen above). I seriously cracked up when I saw it because I couldn't imagine any girl (looking to actually get laid on NYE) actually wearing this HIPHUGGER with those words. A thong, maybe. But this? Definitely not. Actually, now that I think about it, those words are just awful too. I can only imagine what the guys think when they see a girl wearing these.

Well, anyway, I couldn't figure out what to do with it except to photograph it (I certainly wasn't going to give something this tacky to my friend). So, viola! For your viewing pleasure. :)
