Santa Barbara Trip – November 2011

On our way to visit family in Northern California for Thanksgiving last year, we made a detour and stopped in Santa Barbara for a few days. This is where I grew up and I always like spending some time there when I get the chance. I love taking photos of the beach and the ocean.

Hot Air Balloons at the Provo Freedom Festival

Every year as part of Provo’s Independence Day celebration there’s a hot air balloon launch. We usually try to get there around 6:30 a.m. when the balloons are starting to be filled. There are about 25 balloons and around 25,000 people there to watch. It’s all really busy but a lot of fun.

I chose to use the idea of nostalgia by sending out a multiple-choice survey of what people’s favorite childhood memories were. Once I got the results back I made photographs of the top choice in […]

Ocean Beach, San Francisco, CA

Back in August we were visiting family in Sacramento, CA. While we were there we made a day trip to San Francisco. Here are a couple of shots that I liked from the beach:

Yellowstone – Part II: Muted

Here’s the second post from our Yellowstone trip. These photos are a bit more muted in their color pallet than the ones from yesterday’s post. Some because of how I chose to process them and others because that’s how they naturally appeared. I may do one more post on Yellowstone. We’ll see…

Yellowstone – Part I: Colors

We just got back from our fist trip to Yellowstone. Our good friends go every year and invited us to come along this time. We all had a lot of fun and some excitement too. At one point an elk tried to charge our kids and that same evening someone thought it would be cool […]
