some random-ness

hey friends.  I went through some old photos today and have decided to post a few.  okay more than a few.  they are random-ish, kinda like me.  meaning, there is no lyrical theme here.  just photos from different times and years.  enjoy.

and then these last few were from todays walkabout…

PHEW….THE END.

W is for weekend.

and below is a bit of what i saw.

i am currently struggling….feeling like i need to step things up a notch in the photography realm of my life, but i dont know how to go about doing that.  i am ready to learn…now if only the teacher would appear.

thanks for looking…

if you're happy over there, i am happy over here.

aging with grace.

true story.

i love the IDEA of people.

another summer day in venice beach. today…snowboarding in August

i rode down to venice beach today and there was snow.  and snow on a ramp.  and girls.  snowboarding.  it was great!  the crowd was interesting, as usual.  the girls were doing their tricks on the rails.  a competition, of course.  life was good today.  how can it not be when we have snow in august at the beach?  thanks to the fellas from mountain high who brought the snow in.  fun times.  and of course we cant forget to show some skateboarders. and last but not least, a few of the people in the crowd observing the show around them. enjoy the photos.

an evening with kiely & this mornings bike ride

hello folks.  been a bit since i posted, but here i am.  been hanging out with my bff again, kiely, after much time away.  she is a character that you rarely find in the world.  you kinda cock your head to the side and think to yourself, “huh” when you take that first glance at her.  i adore her spirit.  below are a few pictures from the other evening adventure with kiely.  her on her fixie bike during sunset.  and just before.

the other photos are from this morning, taken during my new routine morning bike ride that i do a few times a week.  call it meditation.  i do.  there are a few pictures of random finds along the way, and after, while enjoying my coffee reward once the peddling stopped.

enjoy.

memories fade. camera brings life.

i was looking through my iphoto today for some specific pictures of co-workers, and I ran across these pictures shown here from a day adventure in venice beach.  this was several years ago, maybe 3 or 4.  i recall very much enjoying this particular day.  and coming across this find also reminded me that this is exactly why i enjoy photos and photographing so much.  it burns a memory in time. when your mind may fail you, a photo can bring the memory back to life.  enjoy.
