Nothing is more fun than sitting by the beach in Southern California and overlooking the ocean with great friends, wine and food. I am not sure what it is about the beach and the ocean, but just being there makes me feel relaxed (and also wanting to immediately move to a cottage on top of some …

Santa Barbara Wine and Harvest Festival http://goo.gl/tFlEcd
Of course, we encourage you to head to wine country any day of the week, but twice a year the Santa Barbara Vintners organizes a large weekend festival, bringing all of the winery members to one place to celebrate the wines, to educate and to have fun.

I'm back with a new Budget Day Trip blog - whale watching in Monterey!

A Long-Beaked Common Dolphin Racing Our Boat For some of you, perhaps the first thing that comes to mind when you think of a whale watching trip is, seasickness. I know that's what my husband and son were thinking, so they st...

Urban wine tasting in Santa Barbara , by Allison Levine http://goo.gl/DYN7Fk
You can visit the Urban Wine Trail in the city of Santa Barbara, which lies between the Santa Ynez Mountains and the Pacific Ocean. Called the “American Riviera”, it is less than two hours north of Los Angeles making the city an easy day-trip or weekend getaway.

Sherbet Sandwich... Big Bend, California
I was musing about HDR photography on my blog today: http://goo.gl/uS2Yf. I don't comment on the merits or demerits of HDR very often. In the grand scheme of things, it doesn't really matter what I think. Hashing something over and over that has no answer never seems productive to me. Doing that makes me feel like I'm wasting air I might need later on for something really important. So I usually step aside and let others have at it.

See, the whole conversation is all part of the greater concept of (what is and isn't) art. That discussion has been raging on for centuries and STILL hasn't been resolved to anyone's satisfaction. I'm big on resolutions. So I go about my business, making images that make me happy and sharing a bit about what I do to those who are interested. Seems like a good plan. 

But then today when of it I thought in terms of; "what do Louie the Crab, HDR and living your life as an art(ist) have in common?" - it got more interesting. A good/bad conversation just doesn't light me up as much as a Greater Vision one. I like forward moving energy. I'll be curious to hear your thoughts. ;)
