LA Balcony
Los Angeles, CA

Late at night overlooking LA. I've always said I hate LA, but after spending a little time there, it's not as bad as I made it seem in my head.

This is a 5 exposure HDR, merged in photomatix and with the Lightroom 32-bit plug-in, then both versions blended together along with the original exposures in photoshop.

A Night in Manarola
Manarola, Cinque Terre

During our trip to Italy we only had one full day in Cinque Terre. I feel like we could have spent weeks there and still been happy. We started our day in Monterosso and decided to head out on the hiking trail to Vernazza. The trail passed through vineyards and along the cliffs overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It was quite picturesque, but also a surprisingly challenging hike. There was a bit more climbing than I think we had anticipated, and by the time we got to Vernazza we were starting to feel tired. 

We spent the rest of the day exploring the small town of Vernazza before eventually heading back to Manarola, where we were spending the night. We ate dinner then climbed up our last hill of the night to our B&B where we had a room with this amazing private terrace overlooking the town. It was such a relaxing experience to sit outside and enjoy the nighttime view, listen to the waves crashing, and have a glass of the local limoncello  before heading to bed.

Padres and Dodgers
San Diego, CA

Petco Park last night during the Padres and Dodgers game. I've been thinking about taking this shot since last season, but haven't had time to go out shooting downtown while the Padres are playing. I'm happy to finally be able to check this one off my shot list.

The Bean - Chicago, IL

Cloud Gate, also known as "The Bean" in Millennium Park, Chicago, IL. 

The buildings in the background are really tall, it took a lot of tilting to get them upright. A tilt-shift lens would have been very helpful, I just wish they weren't so expensive. It also took a long time to get all the people out of this shot. It turns out this is a popular place to be just after sunset. I used 4 different brackets all processed with the same settings and the original source files to mask out the people, and even with all those photos I still had to do a little bit of cloning.

Thanks +Tom DiPietro I took multiple photos over the course of a couple minutes as people moved around and I used Photoshop to blend them together to make it appear nobody was in the area.

Clouds on Fire
La Jolla, CA

A colorful sunset from a few weeks ago in La Jolla. The water was rushing between the rocks pretty violently. Between adjusting the timing of the shot with the waves and changing the exposure length to get shorter or longer streaks I took about 10-12 different brackets before I finally got one with water motion I liked.

Get to the Theater
New York City, NY

Every time I see Radio City I think back to when I was a kid and my parents took my sister and me to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular. I haven't seen a ton of stage performances in my life, but the Christmas Spectacular has got to be one of the most memorable. 20 years later I still remember how amazed I was watching the Rockettes perform the Parade of the Wooden Soldiers, and of course, the synchronized kick line.

Stars over Manarola
Cinque Terre, Italy

After an incredible dinner at Trattoria dal Billy, we walked back to our room and pulled up a lounge chair on our private terrace with a glass of limoncello. It was a lot darker than the camera makes it look, and after a minute or two of stargazing we noticed the milky way was visible, so I ran to grab my camera. 

I haven't done a whole lot of astrophotography, but I did what I could with the equipment I had. I was trying to save weight and only brought 2 lenses to Europe, and both were F4. I grabbed my 17-40 and opened it up to F4, cranked up the ISO, and let it shoot for 30 seconds. I was happy to see the stars were visible, albeit a little dark and with a fair amount of noise. I followed up the high ISO exposure with a round of brackets for the city. I merged the city bracket using the Lightroom 32-bit HDR plug-in, then I masked in the sky from the long exposure for the stars using photoshop.

Find the Right Path
Chicago, IL

Shooting from high above Chicago at the top of the Willis (Sears) Tower. It's interesting to look down at the vast network of roads and think about how many routes you could take to get from one point to the next.

The preorder starts Wednesday at all the major retailers, but it's not shipping until August.  I wish the wait wasn't so long. I want be able to read some first impressions, but my urge to have it now is strong enough that I'll probably preorder it. I don't want to risk having to wait even longer if it's supply constrained at launch.

Ocean Sculptures
La Jolla, CA

This is probably my favorite grouping of rocks in La Jolla. There are so many cool lines in this set of rocks, and the level of the tide exposes or hides different parts of it. The tide in this photo was higher than it looks, I had to wait until a set of pretty good size waves ended, then run out to this spot, get the bracket of shots, then run back to safety before the next set of waves.

We have lived in the Gaslamp for 5 years, and go out to eat downtown 2-3 times a week. We've had high expectations since first hearing about Rustic Root, but unfortunately were very disappointed with our experience. Overall the decor was modern and appealing, but the meal did not live up to the expectations. We started with what turned out to be very disappointing cocktails, and the meal just never got better from there. We ordered 3 drinks, starting with an off-menu Manhattan which was selected after the server informed us the menu Manhattan was pre-mixed, and really designed to be a shot and not a cocktail, and while it was a pretty average Manhattan at best, it was by far the best of the 3 cocktails. We also ordered a 1927, made with bulleit bourbon, sweet vermouth, campari and orange rind. Unfortunately the drink was overpowered by the Campari, even searching for the bourbon or vermouth I had a very difficult time tasting them at all. We also had an 1895, which is made with tin cup whiskey, angostura bitters, ginger beer, lemon juice, simple syrup and a lemon twist. This drink ended up tasting like watery angostura bitters. I'm not sure what proportions they used to achieve this, but it was very surprising how flavorless and bad the drink was. Somehow I wasn't even able to taste ginger beer, not sure if it was a bad ingredient, or a bad mix job, but either way, the drink was not good. The food was also a mixed bag, that left us with more bad than good. Our favorite dish was the carnitast bao bao sliders, and I think it was the only dish none of us had a complaint for. The carnitas was flavorful and the bun paired with it very well, overall a very nice dish. The deviled eggs were also tasty, though the egg itself was a little chewy, and our only real knock against it was that it was so clearly inferior to the phenomenal deviled eggs we had last weekend at Table No 10. After the two dishes above, we also got the Surf & Turf which despite the $18 price tag was a decent amount of food. Unfortunately, both the beef tartar and hamachi sashimi suffered from a distinct lack of flavor, and the sashimi seemed to be of marginal quality compared with similar dishes I have had, it had a slight fishy taste and a more chewy texture than I would have hoped. The final 2 dishes were probably the two worst, and included the Kale Caesar salad and the Lobster Pappardelle. The Kale in the caesar salad was nice, good texture and decent flavor, but the positives end there. The dressing was flavorless and the chicken was overcooked and bland. Finally, the lobster pappardelle was the only dish of the night that was bad enough that it was actually difficult to eat. The pappardelle itself was cooked very well, usually the texture of the pasta is the most difficult element of a dish like this, but in this case something went horribly wrong with the sauce. The sauce was both excessively salty and excessively spicy. When taking a bite, the salt hit first, and once the effect of the salt began wearing off, the excess of red pepper took over and left the mouth burning, with no flavor whatsoever coming from the expected base of sherry cream. This dish was bad enough that it would have been sent back to the kitchen immediately, but unfortunately our server was nowhere to be found, and by the time she finally did return to our table all of the other food was gone, and it would have been a waste of time to ask for any kind of replacement dish, so we just settled with what we had (with the lobster pappardelle 90% uneaten). After our complaints about the dish the server did generously remove it from the bill. It was the right thing to do, but these days it seems its not a particularly common practice, especially since I don't usually feel comfortable with more than a relatively short and passive complaint.

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.

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.

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.
