Arch Rock

Up and down the coast in Southern California exist many fantastic photo opportunities. Like this spot the locals call Arch Rock in Corona del Mar. I caught the last glimpse of a California sunset. I was standing on a rock when I took this photo, along with a few other photographers. Afterwards, we all had to skip and waddle atop the rocks while we tried to make it back to shore in the dark. Thank you iPhone flashlight!

A Stroll Through Akumal

Some people practice meditation to help them find clarity in their life while others attend a temple or church once a week to find peace and be with their God. Me? I prefer to take a walk on a pretty beach somewhere while listening to some mellow tunes on my iPod with the sound of soft crashing waves in the background. Like this beach in Akumal, Mexico. I was walking along enjoying the view, listening to Manu Chao when suddenly I think it hit me…bliss. Either that or the mojitos finally kicked in.

Posing on the Malecon

This is my travel buddy Robert. We have been friends since high school and I have had the good fortune of sharing some of my most memorable trips alongside him. We have ran with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain on two separate occasions, celebrated many World Cup victories in Germany06 and France98, and in 2005 we hiked the Andes for 4 days until we arrived to Machu Picchu. The funny thing is we hardly ever see each other when we get back home. Sometimes we’ll go months without any communication. Having a Wife, kids and jobs will do that to you. But when we travel, he is like Harry Dunne to my Lloyd Christmas. Anyhoo, I am looking forward to being able to travel together more often. This photo was from a trip to Havana in 2012. I was taking photos of Havana’s famed boardwalk and asked him to pose for a shot. He is much more photogenic than I am.

Victoria Beach Tower

If you want to avoid the crowded Southern California beaches, just head on over to this little hidden gem in Laguna Beach. It’s called Victoria Beach and it mostly known to the locals. To access it, you have to go down a long stairway tucked between a couple of homes. That’s right, it is in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Good luck finding parking. Once down there, you can enjoy the waves, take a walk and check out the out-of-place  Victorian tower built along the rocky cliffs. And if you are extra lucky, Rapunzel might let down her hair and let you up to her tower.

Electric LA Blue

I posted this photo on Instagram and it was kind of a big hit. I had already posted the full color version before. Sometimes I like to mess around and convert my photos to Black & White and see what the results are. Now I am torn as to whether I prefer the color or BW version. Oh well, they probably both suck. Ha! Enjoy kiddos!

Corona del Mar Beach Sunset

There was some lovely pink cotton candy clouds as the sun began to set over Little Corona Beach. Man, I am cursed. For as long as I remember, I have always longed to live on the beach. Problem is, living on the beach is mighty expensive. I have been fortunate to live in some beautiful beach towns and now I would like to add Corona del Mar to the list. The list that includes Manhattan Beach, Playa del Carmen, and Laguna Beach. Why did I have to be cursed with such expensive tastes?
