Afternoon in Riverside

Joyce Anne needed some headshots for a business she is starting up. And we had a really great time in Riverside this afternoon. We took some fun ones too and they ended up being my favorites.

A Little Romance

Here are some photos I took yesterday in downtown Riverside. They are the first couple I've done and we had a blast. It was a lot of fun. I just looked at some inspiration photos and when to town. Hope you like them.

San Luis pics

These were some of the pics that interested me that I took yesterday. This farm had all these shoes and boots on their fence posts. I stopped to take some pics and it didn't take long before Ma sent out the Posse to do a little investigating. Turns out they were worried I was a photographer sent by their neighbors who don't like their "junk". I told them I liked their junk just fine and he smiled and we were good.

This photo was taken at Morro Bay. The rock was all covered up with fog, so I looked down and saw this boat and thought the colors looked pretty neat.

What can I say but I just loved this.

We all grow up some day...but for now this little girl was totally oblivious to the true message of this store window.

While this isn't the best pic of the day I was struck here by the willingness of people to give money to strangers. Especially if they held a sign asking for it. It is a testimony to the kindness of people and perhaps to their cunning.

I just like how "clean" this shot is of trash.

This guy was so great. He just played away and was so happy. I loved all the stuff he had with him.

There are plenty more where those came from but time is a wasting. I'm heading home today. I had a geat trip and will no doubt take more pics on the way home.

Nature and all it's wonders

I'm on day three of my little four day trip and I am having a great, relaxing trip. I wasn't expecting to see so much nature but as you will see I saw plenty of it on my first real day out and about. Yesterday was my scenic day. I did a lot of driving. Today I intend on going to a mission and taking in some city sites but I'm gonna start later cause I got pooped out right when the sun was setting yesterday and lost my creative energy.

Here is a sample of pics.

these were taken at a cemetery in Cambria

I went on a bunch of backroads and almost made myself sick driving and scoping out pics at the same time!

gearing up

Okay - I know its been a while since I last posted. But honestly I've had a lot going on and not much of it has been photography. Aside from the excitement of stepping on a rusty nail while I shot this lovely pic for Grace's 6th grade graduation montage.

But - I have a wedding I'm attending tomorrow that will prove to have all kinds of opportunties for good candid like pics. The groom asked me to bring it along and how could I say no? I also have a shoot on Sunday and more the next weekend. This next week I'll be upstate taking some time off and will hopefully be shooting a lot of good pics.

So I'll be back soon and maybe I'll catch up with Dawn soon. Not likely!
