King Arthur Carrousel
Anaheim, CA

As I pressed the shutter to start this bracket I looked up and noticed the sign for King Arthur Carrousel was spelled with two "r's." My initial reaction was that it was spelled wrong, or maybe it was some kind of strange British spelling. After a little googling I found both spellings are in fact correct, and both are relatively widely used. In fact, the carousel at California Adventure, King Triton's Carousel, is spelled with one 'r,' I'm not sure how or why Disney chose to spell carousel differently between Disneyland and California Adventure.

One of the cool things about photo post processing, especially in HDR workflows, is when parts of the photo become visible in ways that were not visible to the naked eye, and even weren't visible in the individual raw images.  The sky in this scene was an ugly flat orange, both in the raw image and to my eyes at the time. After HDR merging and color correction for the orange lights, some texture showed up in the clouds, and the sky turned to a blue/black color that's much closer to what I expect a night sky to look like. It's pretty cool what can be done with simple adjustments in modern post processing tools.

Ocean Carved Rocks
La Jolla, CA

I've lived my whole life on the west coast of California. As a result, I have always thought of sunsets and the ocean as subjects that go together. Obviously this isn't true for people in most of the world, but it is a truth based on my life experiences. I wonder what life experiences people have in other parts of the world that have created associations that I would have never considered.

Le Bat en Rouge - Disneyland
Anaheim, CA

New Orleans Square opened in 1966, it was the first new "land" added to Disneyland after the park opened. I've always been confused why they chose to call it a square since there isn't a square. The land is made up of winding narrow streets like this one.

Full Moon Rising
San Diego, CA

I was driving home tonight and noticed the huge moon rising up over the horizon. I haven't had a chance to photograph a full moon for a little while, but it brought me back to the last time I did. It's pretty awesome to watch a gigantic moon rise up over the city.  It feels a little bit like it puts the universe in perspective.

Gondolas at Sunset
Venice, Italy

Venice was an awesome little town. The canals seem so confusing, for some reason I imagine them to be much more confusing than a network of roads winding through a small town. Luckily we didn't have to navigate the canals on our own, we got around on foot, or for longer trips we took the boat bus called the Vaporetto.

Sunset from Coronado
San Diego, CA

Last night I decided to end my weekend with a trip over to Coronado to enjoy the view across the bay to Downtown. The sunset turned out to be pretty great too. 

This is a single, 4-minute exposure taken with a 10-stop ND filter.

On the Beach in La Jolla
La Jolla, CA

With the time change I have time to get out and see the sunset again. I was amazed how many photographers had the same thought as me and were out on the beach in La Jolla. It was probably the most I had ever seen on a weekday. Luckily the show did not disappoint, the sunset turned out to be pretty awesome.

Big City Standout
New York, NY

The best skylines in the world have iconic buildings that make them instantly recognizable. New York is obviously one of the best, and the skyline has no shortage of standout landmarks. At the time of its completion, the Chrysler Building was the tallest in the world, but it held that title for less than a year until April of 1931 when the Empire State Building opened and took the position of worlds tallest.

Bellagio Fountain Show
Las Vegas, NV

I'm heading back to Vegas next week for CES (Consumer Electronics Show). I'm pretty excited, the show is kind of like Disneyland for engineers and gadget geeks (me), and the fact it's in Vegas only makes it better (at least to me). Now I just need to figure out everything I want to see, the show floor is huge, covering the whole convention center and many of the exhibition spaces in nearby hotels. Let me know if there is something I should make an effort to see.

This photo is from a trip I took a year or two ago. The anticipation of my upcoming trip made me want to dig into my Vegas photo archives, and I decided to process this one. I took this after a tough day at the blackjack table, I needed a break from the casino, so I went up to the Eiffel Tower observation deck.

Christmas Season Finale
Anaheim, CA

Yesterday we were able to make one last Christmas Season trip to Disneyland. It was as crowded as I've ever seen, they even stopped letting people into the park for a few hours during the afternoon. Once night came it quieted down and we got to enjoy the Christmas lights and decorations one last time this season.

I haven't tried it all, but I've tried quite a few of the coffee shops in San Diego, and this one is absolutely the best. The staff is quick, courteous and friendly, and more importantly, the coffee is perfect. It's not sour, it's not bitter, and it doesn't taste burnt like so many of the other coffee shops that I'm told will be great. I like to go with a Hummingbird Americano, hot or iced depending on the weather. They sell capped cold brew bottles and beans which is perfect for the times I can't make it in to the coffee shop. Only slightly related, but New English Brewery down the street made a Coffee Stout with Zumbar Coffee and it is without a doubt the best beer they offer, if you like coffee or stouts, I highly recommend you give it a try.

Delicious deep dish pizza. It's not as good as being in Chicago, but living in San Diego, it's the next best thing. The pizza is made from fresh ingredients and the quality comes through in the taste. This place is great for dinner or a late night snack, they also have a very respectable beer list. They offer about 10 beers on tap and many of them are quality beers you won't find at one of the many mainstream bars or clubs nearby.

The tasting room is well put together and they always seem to have a great selection with many of their best beers on tap. I've also purchased a few rare bottles from Alesmith using their Brownbag ticket program and the process as been extremely smooth.

Good food with quick and friendly service, this is my goto breakfast spot for a quick and tasty bite downtown. They serve breakfast until they close at 3:00pm which makes it a great place after sleeping in late.

They have some of the best thin crust pizza around, the Mashed pizza comes topped with Mozzarella, Mashed Potato and Bacon, it is by far my favorite! The Basic salad is also really good, I'm a huge fan of pears and the dressing is the perfect balance of tangy and sweet. If there were anything I could improve it would be the beer list, for a San Diego bar/restaurant, it leaves a lot to be desired.
