Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Abu Dhabi, Collage, UAE

This is my entry for this week’s photo challenge, a collage of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. The place has changed so much over the years that I hardly recognize it, where there used to be water they have built man made land!

Offbeat Brewing Company

"1223 Pacific Oaks Place, Escondido, CA.", Collage, Escondido, HDR, Micro Brewery, North County San Diego, Offbeat Brewing Company, San Diego

Another collage from our day touring the micro breweries of North County San Diego. This is a brand new brewery (Offbeat Brewing Company)that had just opened up a few weeks before our visit; at the time they were only offering four kinds of beer! Considering how new the place is, I offered to give my images to one of the owners so if they ever use it its with my consent 🙂 (for those that are aware of my story with the Marriot)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy

Airport, Collage, Flying, Plane, Weekly Photo Challenge

For this week’s photo challenge, the theme is happy and one of things that really makes me happy is travelling. In last week’s entry, I mentioned that life experiences is what I seek and for me there is no better life experience than travelling and seeing what this beautiful planet has to offer. The destination is not as important, there is something about getting on a plane and landing in a whole different city and potentially culture in a few hours; its a very humbling experience, it puts the things that real matter in life in perspective, and that just makes me happy… 🙂

Here is the 2nd instalment from the photo shoot that I did for my colleague’s brand new F-150. This set is what I call the detailed shots setup in composites and one diptych. Here are (more…)

Austin Healey

The Austin Healey was back again but this time it was a lot more accessible to take pictures of. Since I took a few of them I thought I’d put a composite of this timeless classic. Happy Friday everyone 🙂

The Kebab Shop

Yesterday during lunch we went to The Kebab shop, which is a franchise that is based out of San Diego. The name would lead you to believe that you are going to Middle Eastern restaurant but its really a Turkish shop, now is Turkey part of the middle east? That’s not a debate to have here 🙂 A Doner is not quite a Shawarma, which is the middle eastern sandwich, and its not quite a Gyro either, the Greek version of minced meat. Regardless of what a Doner is I really enjoy their sandwiches; they have a lamb or chicken Doner and even though I typically like lamb more, I think their chicken Doner is the better option; there is some kind of herb in it that just makes it so flavorful (more…)

Water Fountain & Trash bin

A composite of a water fountain and a trash bin at a Park in La Jolla. All 3 images are HDRs, I was thinking of making it into a diptych with just the water fountain but thought this composite would allow me to use all 3 images. I have a lot on my drive that I need to publish!
