Kite surfer

I finally finished editing some photos from last December. I was wearing a parka when I shot these, so you can imagine the beach wasn’t too crowded, which was really lucky, since otherwise I wouldn’t have been able to shoot these. This guy was kite-surfing for a while during sunset, and there were moments when he was literally flying. It was unbelievable, and I will be posting some more shots of his athletic prowess. It was a lucky time to be shooting :).

Morning walk

I have so many photos to edit I don’t even know where to start. While I figure out which way to go next, these are from my vacation last summer, the one sunrise I shot that time. This time there were more days that weren’t completely overcast, so there will be more sunrise posts from this place. Until next time!

Birtyday sunset Vol. II

Here are some more shots from my birthday celebration.

It’s been a pretty eventful couple of weeks for me, I finished my last college class yesterday, and now all that’s left are a couple of finals and a few papers. Last week I was sad to be almost done with college, but suddenly this week I’m rejoicing in the feeling that the future is wide open for me, that I have absolutely no idea where I’m going to go, but I’m going somewhere.

And while I figure it out, I’ll keep shooting :). Hope you like these!

Birthday sunset

This post is for you, Jeff, because you asked for it :). I love photography, and I love this blog, but sometimes I get so wrapped up in everyday life that I forget to make time for my passion, so thanks for reminding me I needed to post right now!!

Fortunately, I’m passionate about my work, too. I can’t believe it’s almost December and my last semester of college is almost over, but I’m glad because I know I made the most of it. I’ve started working on my thesis, and it’s so much fun! I don’t mind the paperwork, I don’t mind the crazy deadlines, I just love being able to write about something that I love. There’s nothing better than waking up every morning feeling grateful for all the wonderful things I have in my life :).

I took these shots on my birthday week, this beautiful sunset was nature’s gift to me. Hope you like them!

Sunset and sailboat

Hi there, everyone! How long has it been since I last stopped by? Time seems to fly this year. July was a month of leisure for me, I slept a lot, watched a lot of movies (fell in love with the Marx brothers), and read a few books. I didn’t take a lot of photos because I refused to keep a schedule, even nature’s. I did go shooting around the neighborhood a couple mornings, and they were so stunning that they counted for a million. The first one was misty and everything was covered in dew, the second one was sunny and everything was golden. My beloved almond tree was in bloom, so I got some lovely shots. If I manage to empty my hard drive and make enough space to download them, I’ll get around to posting them sometime (how did I end up with only 4GB of empty space?).

I’m starting my last semester next week, but don’t ask me how I feel about it because I haven’t decided if I’m elated or panicked yet. I’ll still have to work on my thesis next year, but there will be no more classes for me. I’ve no idea what I’m going to do with my life, but from what I hear that’s a pretty common state for college graduates.

These are some shots from last summer. My father and some friends were testing out an old sailboat one of them got, it held for about five minutes the first time until it was so full of water they had to drag it out, but the second time (after they fixed it) it sailed beautifully, and I got a laugh and some lovely shots. There will be more to come soon.

Life is good and crazy over here, and I wish you all as much happiness as I have :).
