Half Dome

March 27, 2012

Taken with Motorola Droid X Using HDR Camera

Taken while climbing over the rockslide that occurred back in 2008 or 2009. I can’t remember the exact date that we were told but the path was definitely blocked off. We just ignored the signs and walked through anyway. Definitely worth it.

California Coast

Taken with Motorola Droid X Using HDR Camera

I’m a little disappointed with how the clouds turned out to look so blurry on this one but I absolutely love the colors, regardless. California was a weird place, especially when it came to the landscape, but it sure made for some wicked photos. This one was taken off the side of Highway 1 somewhere in between Santa Cruz and Monetery, looking up from the beach.

Another shot from the Carmel Mission during my last days in California. I would have post this one earlier, but I couldn’t decide which edit I liked better.

San Francisco Sunset

January 21, 2012

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

This was taken down by the ocean in San Francisco near sunset and I really liked how the mountainous part of the picture turned out when I was playing around with some edits. So I cropped it up and now it’s my new timeline cover picture on Facebook. If I ever get around to printing my photos on canvas one day I want to make this one HUGE. like widescreen TV huge.

Carmel Mission

January 19, 2012

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

Clearly I’ve been slacking on keeping this blog updated with posts but that’s okay because I have quite a few good pictures to add to it from the last two months. Like this one. This might be the best HDR photo I’ve ever made. It just looks epic-ly pretty. At least that’s what I think.

It was taken in Carmel, CA at the famous mission there. The place was absolutely gorgeous and I might have a few more photos from the location to upload at a later point.

The Daily Winter Commute

December 6, 2011
Morning Commute

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

This is about as bad as my morning commute gets all winter long. For 5-10 minutes I have to wait for the Light Rail high up in the sky and endure the morning breeze in 35 degree weather. I hear it’ll start raining soon, too, so that might make things a little worse.

However, this is nothing compared to what I have been used to for the past 22 years of my Michigan-based life. I’ll happily endure the outside elements of California all winter long for 5-10 minutes each day.

It’s much nicer than the daily Michigan winter grind of freezing cold temperatures, mountains of snow and the unpredictability of car engines in cold weather.
