Torrance Fourth of July Fireworks

This year, Mike and I decided to walk to the Fourth of July fireworks in Torrance!  It was so close to where we live and it ended up being a GREAT fireworks show!  Of course, my trusty Nikon tagged along, and I was SO happy with how my pictures turned out!  There was so much texture in these shots and I really like how that added to the overall feel of the pictures.  There are a couple in here that I almost feel like I could pet because they look so soft and feathery!  My two favorites from this group are Dandelion, because it looks like a dandelion right before you blow the seeds everywhere, and Eagle.  That was not an eagle-shaped firework – I just happened to catch it at the right moment and to me, it looks exactly like an eagle head!

California Wildflowers

I’m sure a lot of you heard about the California super bloom this year!  We got so much rain this “winter” and that led to so many flowers blooming!  Also, for the first time since we’ve moved out here, things are actually GREEN and not brown!  We knew that we needed to go somewhere before […]

Death Valley Part Two

This post can be summed up in two words:  BABY. BURRO.  Let me set the scene for you.  Mike and I are in a beautiful national park surrounded by snowcapped mountains, salt flats, and canyons.  We drive up to a ghost town, Rhyolite, which is just outside the park border in Nevada.  We were told […]

San Francisco: After Dark

I love night pictures.  I love them.  When we went to San Francisco, we knew we’d have to take some night pictures!  One thing that we didn’t exactly plan for was the fog…it was so misty/foggy the night we took pictures, so a lot didn’t really turn out well.  The light bounces off the fog […]
