San Francisco Treats. San Francisco summer of 2014 was supposed to be shorts and t-shirts at the beach. It was July after all, and I expected to be greeted with warm and sunny weather. This was not the case. It was so cold when we arrived that afternoon, we had […]

I think I may be afraid of heights. I often travel via plane, and I always hate the feeling of taking off followed by random turbulence. As far as a helicopter is concerned, I’ll jump right in without any fear. The great state of Arizona has this national park known […]

We took a drive over to Utah this past month to explore the wonders of Zion National Park. It is everything I ever heard it to be. Such an incredible place of beauty and awe. I’d say this place is more enjoyable than the Grand Canyon in Arizona, but don’t […]

Everywhere I look it seems I can’t escape the negative connotations of “drones”. News reports of deranged individuals shooting down an aircraft because of privacy concerns, or even over exuberant pilots performing dangerous maneuvers in restricted air space. I get it, this is new to everyone, and with all the […]

I remember this time last year, my daughter and I took a road trip to the west coast. Eventually landing in San Francisco during the 4th of July weekend. It was my very first time shooting fireworks. Most of the years I spent time looking up at the spectacle of […]

I spent a good majority of July in San Francisco last year. Maybe I will go back this month and pick up on some more photos. I wanted to share what I had the privilege of seeing while there. I hope you all can appreciate the beauty of the landscape.
