June 26th, 2010. Its hard to beleive that this was already a month ago! This was the day of Steve and Casey's wedding in Pasadena. I was up relitively early for this one, at the salon just before 10am, and I photographing until almost 11pm! Not such a terrible day, in fact I really enjoyed it.
I am going to do something a bit different with this post and try to use bloggers photo upload system instead of my usual photo bucket aproach ... well see how things work out!
So again with the lagging. This whole week has been crazy, Ive been going out every night for the last two weeks, and its not stopping! The Burlesque show last week was great, but I have barely touched those pics! So today its going to the Le Face, Dva Dammas and Woah Hunx show from Whittier a couple of weeks back.
The show was in downtown Whittier, not a location that there are normally good shows, but maybe there are and I am just ignorant to them ... in either case, this show was in a dance studio that was rented out for the evening, mirrored walls and all.
This was the 2nd band ... I feel bad for forgetting their names ... it happens. I need to bring a pen and notepad with me.
Wow! These have been a busy couple of weeks. Today its the 4th of July and its been a great weekend! I have been shooting a lot, and have been spending most of my free time editing. I shot a wedding last week, as well as another Boozy Floozy Burlesque show, so pics of those are coming, but today I am going to play catch up a bit and post some photos I took a few weeks ago along the Santa Ana River.
These were photographed for the "Drains To Ocean" Show at Nomadic Image, (www.nomadicimage.com)it will be opening in August. The entire collective that makes up Nomadic Image has documented practically the entire Santa Ana River, from Big Bear to the Beach. My section was from the Prado Dam South to Green River road. This was my 3rd time out there. The 1st time I tried to ride my bike along the trail, I ended up taking a wrong turn and the road down the wrong side of the river, I had to back track about 5 miles to find the right turn ... by this point I was over it for that day. 2nd time I tried hiking it from Gypsum Canyon Road ... we stated out too late and ran out of time, only making it to Green River .... 3rd times the charm, and we hiked down the south side of the river, which is the wrong side by the way. There is no established trail, and we were often times making our own trail. No, it was not easy, but we made it to the Dam! Then we climbed the dam, and victoriously overlooked the 91 freeway and the river. Here are a few pictures from our hike ...
RR bridge in between a housing complex and golf course ... so far, we hadn't had to jump any fences and it had been an easy hike.
