Huntington Beach Pier

Here is a pic of the Huntington Beach Pier shot with my Mavic. It was my second to last day there and there was a crazy storm. I did manage to get the drone up and get some footage and some pics before the weather got really bad.

Venice Beach California Skate Park Shot From A Kite

Venice Beach California Skate Park Shot From A Kite

Venice Beach California, one of the coolest places in the world. I actually shot this photo about 4 years ago and I shot it from a kite. Yes a kite. Before drones were easily available and affordable there were kites, and believe it or not I used to do lots of kite photography.

Those days were awesome, setting up a kite and this crazy rig to go on the kite where your camera would attach to, it was scarry to say the least but lots of fun. It is fully controllable from a remote control except you can’t see the what you are shooting, its kind of a guessing game.

I have really been into this aerial photography thing for a while, its so cool seeing the world from above.

I want to fall in love

I want to fall in love

I want to fall in love, not the kind of love you find, but the kind of love that finds you, the kind of love that makes you dance in the rain, the kind of love that makes you feel like your floating, the kind of love that makes everything possible, the love you read about. I want to fall in love, feel invincible, feel like nothing matters except another second with that person. The kind of love where you plan your whole life entirely based on someone else’s happiness… I want to fall in love…

The back of the Hollywood Sign

The back of the Hollywood Sign

The back of the Hollywood Sign. I have photographed the Hollywood sign dozens of times, but never like this. I have always wanted to go to it and see what its like to see the city how it sees it. I have always heard stories about the motion sensors, and the cameras, and the people getting arrested for going up there. This time I was determined to go to it regardless of the consequences. It turnes out its super ez to get to it, hundreds of people do it everyday. There is a paved road that takes you to this very spot. There is security to make sure you don’t do anything stupid but it is not the mission I thought it was going to be. This photos are by far my favorites of the Hollywood Sign. I will be back sometime this summer to shoot it some more, perhaps from a helicopter this time…

Check out my Main Site, it just got a face lift. I will also be uploading new galleries to it so make sure you come back soon. Have a great weekend everyone…Spread the love…

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall, what a cool building. This day was crazy for us, this was on our way up to burning man. This particular night we were completely exhausted but decided that we still had batteries to go on so we headed downtown LA. We arrived at the HWY intersections where we encountered a photo walk composed of about 20 photographers, so we go talkin to them and next thing you know we had all this new places to go to, this being one of them. We ended up shooting until about 3am and glad we did because this are my favorite photos of this particular trip to CA. More photos of this trip on Facebook.

Here is a bit of info about this place: Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Los Angeles Observatory

Los Angeles Observatory

The sun was setting in LA and we were stuck in traffic. Once we finally approached the Observatory, the sun was gone. That is not a bad thing tho there is so much to see in this place, not only outside but inside as well. This greets you as soon as you walk in, is this massive Pendulum where you have to stop and just dive into before exploring the rest of the building. If you are ever in LA or you live there and hvave never been there before, you must check it out. Los Angeles Observatory is truly awesome…

The gently swaying Foucault Pendulum in the W.M. Keck Foundation Central Rotunda has long been a visitor favorite since the building opened in 1935. One of the largest such devices in the world, the fully restored pendulum is actually an elegant scientific instrument which demonstrates the Earth’s rotation.

The 240-pound brass ball, suspended by a cable 40 feet long, swings in a constant direction while the Earth turns beneath it. The pendulum is mounted to a bearing in the rotunda ceiling that does not turn with the building as it rotates with the Earth. A ring magnet at the bearing gives a little tug on each swing of the pendulum to keep the pendulum in motion. As the day passes, the pendulum knocks over pegs set up in the pendulum pit and indicates the progress of rotation. www.griffithobservatory.org
