Photo-a-Day: Year 6, Day 203 – Total Days: 2,029
Not much to say here. Just some flowers I spotted on the sidewalk while walking over to a friend’s house for dinner…
This past Saturday, I went to the San Luis Obispo Renaissance Festival, which was celebrating its 30th Anniversary. It’s a great time full of ale, knights, costumes, ale, accents, jousts, swordfighting, ale, turkey legs, archery, falcons, ale, giant jenga, music, camaraderie, and oh, did I mention ale? ;-)Read More»

I may be a photographer, but I’m also a total geek on the side. Yep, I’ve been known to play some Dungeons and Dragons on occasion. It’s been awhile though. But with the new 5th Edition coming out this year, I’ve just had to check it out. Picked up the new boxed Starter Set last week and was able to start running a game this evening for some friends.Read More»

A day at the Renaissance Faire can be quite exhausting – as demonstrated by Rick and his daughter, Mary.
(It was amusing just how many people in the Hound’s Haven guild came up to me and pointed out this scene in order to make sure I got the shot. So Rick, if you’re pissed that there’s photographic evidence of you sleeping on the job, it’s all the guild’s fault! But of course, if you like the photo, I’ll take all the credit ;-)

Went to the Concerts in the Plaza today where Diego’s Umbrella was playing, and it was packed! Clearly a very popular band. Made it much harder to get up close to grab a few shots, but I gave it a solid effort. One downside to my new 6D though is that it doesn’t work with my 250mm zoom. It’s the one lens I have that’s a smaller EF-S mount and the 6D is so fancy it only works with EF mount lenses. This means I can’t zoom in as much as I might like. Oh well… It’s good to practice shooting with a different style, but I’ll still definitely need to get a long zoom for this new camera.
As for the band, I was a little miffed that they had no umbrellas. Kinda doubt that anyone is even named Diego… Good music though! Gypsy rock they call it, and yes, that’s an apt description. Plenty of fun — I see why so many of my friends are big fans.

I’ll be going to the San Luis Obispo Renaissance Faire tomorrow, so it seemed like today would be a good time for a little blast from the past, by showcasing some photos I took at last year’s.Read More»

The dunes near Los Osos, California are a more exciting place than you might think…

Last week I had the great honor of photographing Lauren and Joe’s new daughter, Tiffany, which I did on location over at their place. But today was extra cool because Lauren and Tiffany came over to my place where I could use the studio for a shoot with them. I love getting to use my off-camera flash setup and to have a plain backdrop to work with.Read More»
