Smith & Nixon Upright Piano, Circa 1899

 

Here is a sneak peek of a Smith & Nixon Upright Piano, circa 1899. I am taking photographs of this beautiful antique piano because the wood work, ivory keys, overall design is gorgeous. I will post more soon but I had to get this photograph out to the blog world right away…

A big thank you to The Burba Family for letting me spend a few hours with them at Balboa Park in San Diego CA. The day was spectacular with perfect San Diego weather. I discovered a few interesting spots at Balboa Park when scouting the area for pictures. It’s amazing what you find when you slow down and simply look around.

One week ago the latest miracle in life, Brooke, arrived.  Mom and Dad are so loving and I am so grateful to them for trusting me with taking photos of their little angel.

So it rained last night…quarter of an inch…

Didn't see this coming last night...

Not sure if I like the b/w or color better...or neither?

Weather in San Diego County can sneek up on us at times. Guess it wasn’t supposed to rain as much as it did over night. Not that 1/4 inch of rain is a lot but it’s not the norm. The “FLOODED” signs were up on certain streets.

Shooting Info: f4.5, 1/1000, ISO 200, white balance “cloudy”, RAW

Wavecrest Woodie Meet 2010

Wavecrest Woodie Meet is the largest of its kind in the country. Held each September at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas, CA. It draws up to 300 wooden-bodied cars for a weekend of car and surf-related activities. This year marks the 31st anniversary of Wavecrest!

I didn’t want to just take photos of cars so I went for creativity. I hope you enjoyed my trip to the Woodie show. These are beautiful cars to photograph with a lot of history to tell.

A walk on Neptune (Ave)

I walk almost daily along Neptune Ave. in Encinitas CA. The more I walk the more I am aware of the different signs and views. I notice the subtle changes in seasons. I know what the neighbors gardens look like in winter, spring, summer and fall. I am not sharing garden photos here, only a few ‘signs’ of life on Neptune:
