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

March 19, 2012

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.

Oregon Coast

March 18, 2012

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

This was my very first impression of Oregon as we were making the drive up from San Jose at the end of January. It was somewhere between 5 and 6 in the morning and so far on the trip we had been completely in the dark while driving on the coast. But just as the sun started to rise, a river and bridge came into view so we decided to stop for a bit and watch the sun come up.

Carmel Mission

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.

Christmas in the Park

Christmas in the Park

Taken with Motorola Droid X using HDR Camera

I took this picture at Christmas in the Park in downtown San Jose on December 1st. It was 71 degrees out. It didn’t feel right to me at all, I mean, it looked and felt like the middle of summer and there was a whole Christmas exhibition setup downtown complete with “Winter Wonderland” blaring from the speakers.

Don’t get me wrong, I love the amazingly warm weather, but Christmas just isn’t Christmas without the cold weather and snow. I guess that’s why they try to simulate it with all the tacky white plastic sheets they put on the ground and the fake snow falling from light posts, though.

It’s weird, because I never much liked the concept of Christmas that much anyway. But now that I’m on the verge of experiencing my first Christmas without snow, family and friends — I miss it. A lot.

And I kind of love this picture. Even if it is all fake.
