Something so soothing about ducks floating around in a pond at sunset. Can anyone spot the guy whoโ€™s camera shy? ๐Ÿฆ†๐Ÿ“ท Happy Friday!๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ‰


Hey Everyone! Thought you might be in the mood for a warm Wednesday sunset with some cool reflections.... ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒฒ


Happy๐Ÿ’˜Day!! Can you find the hidden โค๏ธin this photo? This was from a couple years ago at The Railyards and somehow I set this one aside and never posted. Hope everyone has a sweet day with their sweethearts...๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•



Some sizzling Seattle vibes from this past summer.... ๐Ÿ™๏ธ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ“ทHappy Friday! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿบ

This next oneโ€™s dedicated to the ladies....๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™Ž๐Ÿฝโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Just wanted to give a big shout out to some of the talented and supportive female photographers out there who have been an inspiration to me as well as provided words of encouragement for my passion. Really means a lot! ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ(tap photo for some inspiring feeds)


Not often you see LA freeways this quiet at rush hour, but on New Yearโ€™s day, got to see that and this sunset ๐ŸŒ‡๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Ž


Bridge on the horizon.... THANKS go out to all of you who proved me WRONG on my last post and actually read AND replied to my message ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Youโ€™re all the best, and I really appreciate the feedback! HUGE thanks also go out to these sites for featuring and sharing my photos the past couple weeks ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ‰๐ŸŽ‰ @cloudzdelight
@visualartistfound Btw, EXTRA points if you read this far AND can spot the little bridge in the distance..... ๐Ÿ‘€



Youโ€™re NOT going to read this post...I mean statistically speaking itโ€™s just not going to happen. But if you insist on proving me WRONG and being a scientific anomaly Iโ€™ll go ahead and play along. Just tell me ONE thing I like to shoot ๐Ÿ“ท in the comments and see if youโ€™re going to either restore my faith in humanity, or prove me right. Either way, I still win! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ Oh, and Happy New Year!๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿพ๐ŸŽŠ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿฅ‚

Of boats and bridges....๐Ÿ›ฅ๏ธ๐ŸŒ‰ Ok, well I guess thereโ€™s only one bridge in this photo, but can you spot the three boats? I only planned for two in this long expo but another snuck out from behind the boat on the left to photo bomb my shot. But I decided to roll with it...Happy Friday, and also BIG thanks to @visitsacramento for the recent feature and @world_bestsky for making me their newest member! ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿฅ‚

Predawn exploring at Santa Monica Pier a couple months back. Was hoping for an epic sunrise but had to settle for the moody gloomy clouds. Always next time I suppose ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธโ˜๏ธ๐ŸŽก๐Ÿค™๐ŸผHappy Friday!! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ



If you know me Iโ€™m normally going for long exposure and smooth waters but sometimes you just want to see ducks swimming through rippled waters... ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿฆ†๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

When sunsets go wild....Wishing you all a Happy Friday! ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŽ‰


Anyone else love this movie? Such a love letter to my hometown canโ€™t help but enjoy, and I also have special affection for actress Laurie Metcalf. When I waited tables in college, Laurie and Al Pacino came in to my restaurant and I had the pleasure of being their waiter. They were both such down to earth, nice people. Hope everyone gets to see this movie and that it leads to more Sacramento-inspired film and art ๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿฟ๐ŸŽŸ๏ธ๐Ÿคฉ


Hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving with family and friends. Time to go out and stimulate the economy I guess.... ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐ŸŽ๐Ÿ’ธ๐Ÿค‘


Big places that can make you feel really small....Mad love for this exquisite work of architecture in #DTLA. On this Thanksgiving Eve, want to also express mad love and thanks for everyone on IG who has encouraged and inspired me this past couple years. Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving and BIG shoutout to these 2 hubs for featuring my last post: ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ“ท๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ @wildcalifornia_ @loves_reflections


Well apparently I never got the memo that new emojis just got added to the mix, so donโ€™t know if I should be mad ๐Ÿคฌ or sick about it ๐Ÿคฎ or maybe not think about it too much or my head might just ๐Ÿคฏ...Happy Wednesday! ๐Ÿคช


Hereโ€™s your HAPPY FRIDAY sunset. Enjoy.... ๐ŸŒ…๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ


Wonder what the electric bill is for LACMAโ€™s โ€œUrban Lightโ€ every month? ๐Ÿค” Anyway thanks for keeping it lit LA! ๐Ÿ’ก๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ’ฐโœจ Oh, and speaking of thanks, HUGE thanks to these sites for recent features: ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ@visitsacramento


You may be wondering why Iโ€™m holding a yellow lantern against a sunset sky with a baseball field below. Well, aside from the fact I really enjoy sunset shots, this past Saturday was Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Greater Sacramentoโ€™s Light the Night Celebration, and the yellow lanterns represent remembrance of someone lost to a blood cancer (in my case my dad almost 3 years ago). Honored to serve as the board chair for LLS Greater Sacramento and many thanks to the LLS team, volunteers, sponsors and fundraisers who supported this yearโ€™s event! ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŽ‰๐Ÿ’กโค๏ธ๐Ÿ’›
