Costa Rica videos

Here are two videos: one of a crazy bird call that sounds like Close Encounters of the Third Kind and another of a small gurgling waterfall in the cloud forest of Costa Rica (you can hear that same bird again in the background). You'll have to tilt your head for the second one, but it's more for the sound anyway.

Costa Rica

About a month ago, I got to go to Costa Rica with a couple great friends. As always, I am drawn to green scenery (I live in a desert normally), bright colors, and beautiful people.

Gardens

Went to the gardens today with a friend. Seemed to be wedding shot time. They offer yoga classes in the fragrance gardens. How dreamy would that be?

Anna's jewelry

My friend Anna makes some beautiful jewelry! These she custom made for her family for her wedding. She used some old rocks her geology-loving family had. Here's a link to more of her work: http://hawaiianmagpie.blogspot.com





Anna & Jacob wedding

What a fun wedding! As you can tell, these people are all sorts of wild, creative, and crazy fun!

Knitted trees

I just love the people who do this! It brought a smile to my face and color to a gray day!

Portraits of dogs and their owners

Went to the park on a sunshiny day and practiced with my manual focus 50mm (or portrait) lens.

Photos with children

Sometimes it's challenging taking photos of children, but the results are usually well worth it. Here are two photo sessions with some adorable kids.
