I never once accomplished a complete pullup at TIES. Stupid presidential fitness test.

I am happy to announce the 1st Google+ Photography Giveaway. I have lined up some awesome prizes for everyone to get a chance to win. A more in-depth take on these guidelines, rules and instructions can also be found on my blog, http://www.colbybrownphotography.com/blog/google-exclusive-giveaway-big-photography-prizes-free-stuff/. Please share that link with any photographer that you know that hasn't joined Google+ just yet and lets bring them into our community here :)

Who Is Eligible?
As long as you have a Google+ account, you are eligible. It does not matter where you live :)

Remembering my late grandmother today. She basically raised me and completely spoiled me. She would have been 87 today. Miss you, Zuzu.

Son, I miss her too. She was my best friend and a wonderful mother. I am sure she is watching us kindly and lovingly. She adored you Larry. She would always comment on how good looking you are and how proud she was of you. When you went to college she cried for two reasons first of pride then because she missed her xuxuca. Her first netinho. love Mom.

Friday night was the highlight of the trip for me thus far (sorry Metallica). I got to drop in to Gilbert Melendez' new training facility in San Francisco.

For those who may not know Gilbert is currently ranked among the top 2 lightweight MMA fighters in the world and is the current Strikeforce lightweight champion. I attended a nogi grappling class taught by Gilbert himself but the highlight of the night for me was getting to roll with Gilbert for about 5 minutes. In the course of those 5 mins I must have been submitted 8-10 times. He probably thought I was a little crazy as I was giggling like a school girl the whole time.

I want to thank Gilbert and the rest of his team (especially Josh) for being such gracious hosts. Anyone in the San Francisco area should definitely drop by. The facility is huge featuring a full octagon, lots of mat space, heavy Fairtex bags, and a soon to be installed boxing ring. I think the grand opening for this new facility is in October.

And a big thank you again to +John Yamasaki for taking me along.
