Spending some time at the Artist Village in Santa Ana, CA.

February 25, 2012 admin 0

I love going here. It has been seven years since I’ve been here. This place has character and soul. Artists live and work here along with great restaurants. A lively place every first Sat. of the month. All the galleries are open and it is simply a blast to go and people watch, view art and take photographs of it all. Here are some shots of what it looks and feels like. Be sure to click on the images to see a larger image.

The Camp

February 24, 2012 admin 2

If you are ever traveling in Orange County, CA you should be sure and stop at this very cool location. The Camp is a collection of neat shops and especially restaurants and wine bars. Below are some great photos to help you find the location as you drive by. I would say it is a must do while in Orange County. The Camp is located in Costa Mesa at Bristol and Baker. Well worth the trip. All shots from the Sony NEX-5N with 18 to 55mm lens. Click on the photos to see a bigger image to see how sharp and clear the images are.

Visiting Orange County, CA.

February 21, 2012 admin 0

I am spending a few days with friends in Orange County, CA. While there I had a photo shoot for a client in Costa Mesa. These are a few shots taken with my Sony NEX-5N w/ 18 to 55mm lens. What a joy to shoot with this lens. The ISO setting was 3200. Amazing quality at that high of ISO setting. Click on image to see large image.

First images from my new Sony NEX-5N

February 15, 2012 admin 1

This afternoon I went to the Grubstake bar in Quartzsite to test the interior shots of a very dark bar with my new Sony NEX-5N. I sat down and ordered an Arrogant Bastard Ale and started to shoot the interior. Set the ISO at 3200 at F3.5, auto HDR. Wow! Hand held aperture priority works great. Met this fellow who came in to pick up an order of fish and chips for he and his wife. A large serving to say the least. One order would have taken care of two people. Anyway we started talking and I mentioned how great the Arrogant Bastard Ale was and he ordered two – one for him and one more for me. Yikes! We talked awhile we he waited […]

Quartzsite Valley and Hi Jolly.

February 7, 2012 admin 2

I hiked up a hillside the other day. A beautiful day out. I found a couple of guys prospecting for gold the easy way. The view from the hill looking back at Quartzsite. I found the Hi Jolly grave/monument in town as well. Hi Jolly was a Syrian born in Syria about 1823 and came to this country Feb. 10, 1856. That is when the U.S. brought over Camels from the Arab deserts. He was a camel driver, packer, scout serving our government for over thirty years. Pretty amazing.

My morning walk to an old mine.

February 1, 2012 admin 0

I was taking my morning walk and decided to go check out this old mine site. I did not want to get to close for fear of slipping and falling into the vertical shaft. Scary. I threw a rock down the hole and it eventually hit bottom. After hiking I drove over to get propane tanks refilled. Why is it that when your propane goes out it is always in the middle of the night? I kept thinking man the heater is not working to well. I then checked and found it was out. No propane. Thankfully I had a small portable Coleman heater that is for just such emergencies. On the way back I stopped at the Espresso wagon for a cup of Joe. […]
