We went to the Irvine Spectrum today and grabbed some lunch. While there, we decided to take a quick ride on the Ferris Wheel.
As I was walking out of the restaurant today, I noticed this light beam coming through the window. I pulled the iPhone out of my pocket and took one shot. The guys with me thought I was weird. It’s possible they’re correct.
It’s the least number of attempts to complete a picture-a-day since I started. Although, any less effort would be a fail right? One shot, one kill. It’s a record that can’t be beaten either. Hey, with only 22 days left I need all the help I can get.
The view from the Beachcomber restaurant. I love this place. Taken with my iPhone.
The waiting room is now dark when I leave.
I went to a group shoot this afternoon in Laguna Beach.
I had a meeting in San Diego today so on the way home I stopped by Carlsbad beach for some sunset shots with fellow 365’er Steve.
San Diego had record heat for November with the highs hitting three digits today. I must admit, I looked pretty ridiculous wearing my suit with a camera around my neck at the beach tonight.
I’ve been playing with processing and trying to take different images recently. I guess that’s what eventually happens with the 365.
This wagon is out in front of the Old Mining Company restaurant in Orange. I passed it on the way home and made a quick u-turn to shoot it.
I went to UFC 121 last night. It was my first experience watching up close and live. Wow, it is intense. The current champion, Brock Lesnar, really got whooped by Cain Velasquez tonight. There weren’t as many meat heads in the crowd as I had expected and that was nice. I was surprised by the nationalism displayed though. It was like the US vs Mexico in there. Valasquez is Mexican and sure had a lot of flag waiving fans rooting for him. That wasn’t as nice.

He’s a fantastic commercial photographer who created a complete portfolio with just an iPhone. I decided to test myself today since I pretty much punted on 3rd down yesterday.
It has been raining a lot recently and I had a big sales meeting about 20 miles north of LA this morning. That meant I had to get up at 0-gawd-thirty to “beat” traffic. It turns out there is no beating traffic these days.
The Hollywood sign in the rain caught my attention. It made me think about how many dreams have come true in this thirty mile zone. Heading back home, I wondered how many more have been crushed in this same zone.
It was a long day but very productive and my meeting couldn’t have gone better.
It certainly feels like Fall these days. There is a large park filled with Oak trees nearby and all the leaves are falling.
