Glendale Thrift Stores | Glendale, CA

Posted on

This is exactly where I was hoping this blog would go. I wanted to start catching our more candid moments. Feiya is constantly doing something crazy everywhere we go. It’s a riot. We try to get her to act “natural” but, it never lasts. One minute she’s doing something insanely goofy and the next she’s pouting because we didn’t get boba tea yet. Total drama queen. It won’t be long before she discovers the drama clubs. Last weekend it was just Feiya and myself for an afternoon of antics and thrift store shopping. Dana had a ticket to attend a […]

E Desert Inn | Las Vegas

Posted on

I’ve been in Las Vegas for 2 years. I love it more every day. It’s just such an interesting place to live. Sometimes I feel like I’m walking in a different time. I shot a condo in this complex this past week. The condo was a little gloomy, but look at that courtyard! Saying it’s seen better days is an understatement. The building was built in 1963 and is located just a half block from the strip. I can just imagine rolling up in a Chevy Convertible and parking under the carport. The pool teaming with people drinking cocktails and […]

Dana’s USA Citizenship Ceremony | Las Vegas

Posted on

This past Friday Dana received her citizenship certificate. It was a very exciting moment for the 3 of us. We’re very proud of Dana and how far she has come since arriving in the US 5 1/2 years ago. She aced her interview because she was so well prepared. I was amazed by the accuracy that she knew the questions with. Great job sweetheart! I love you! This will mean we can now proceed with Feiya’s application. It should be a fairly easy process. We hit some bumps in the road with her Green Card, but this will be different. […]

Feiya’s iPhone Art | IbisPaint X Drawings

Posted on

Feiya makes some incredible renderings on her iPhone using IbisPaint X. She makes them scratch drawing with her fingers. She shows me the many many layers that goes into making the drawing. She starts with a simple outline and then fills in the spaces with colors. Then she adds shading and details after that. Incredible results! I have been asking her to send me some. Finally today she sent some to me. I asked her for everything she had (she does several of these a week) and she told me she’s been deleting them because they take up too much […]

Stellar Logo Design Almost Live!

Posted on
Stellar Logo Design- Logo design and web design.

I bought a website @stellarlogodesign.com just about a year ago from a design team in India. I paid $125 basically to get the domain name. The website itself needed a makeover. My plan was to redesign the website and start hustling for logo design and web design work. I redesigned the website fairly quickly and felt good about the project. Well, the more I delved into it the more unanswered questions arose. I wanted to have it “live” by March of this year. That didn’t happen due to lack of education and know how on my part. The first thing […]

Back Country Adventure | Brian Head, Utah

Posted on

Feiya had a 3 day weekend from school, so we took a little trip to Brian Head. We were hoping to catch some color in the leaves, but were too late. The area proved to be beautiful nonetheless. The spiny white aspens sauntered like ghosts against the spotless blue sky. I’ve wanted to go on a back country OHV tour since we staid in Page, AZ last spring. The hotel we staid at had a off road tour company next door. I talked the guy about it and it sounded awesome. I was concerned to take Feiya, however. She can […]

Blissful Harmony | teakruthie

Posted on

Today was a beautiful day here in Vegas. Mid 70’s, clear sky, light breeze, and like I told my friendly neighbor at the mailboxes, no complaints! So, why not brew nice pot of tea this evening? Can’t really think of a reason not to. Tonight’s brew is Blissful Harmony from our buddies at teakruthie . This is an infusion of orange Ceylon and white tea. It’s lighter than the Organic Orange from my last post on tea. I over steeped and it went too dark. So, it’s a stronger as usual. You can see by the photos that it’s darker […]

Fremont Street & The Strip | Las Vegas

Posted on

I had some down time at work this week and was able to play tourist. My first stop was my favorite Las Vegas hangout, Fremont Street. Fremont Street is a great spot for people watching and street photography. I usually go in the mornings when it’s low key and easy going. This time there was a lot of construction as they are updating the canopy. The light show will be seen during the day. They had half of it completed. Anyway, I was able to get some shots off. I posted my favorites here. My 2nd stop was the Strip. […]

Dana and Feiya- Iron County Fair 2019

I started this blog about 10 months ago. I wanted to take my “good” photos off of Facebook. Wary of social media and not interested in likes, hearts, or follows I started this blog. I cataloged all of my photos from 2010 to present and posted them here. It wasn’t too difficult and I was able to organize them into categories just how I wanted. I loved it! Now, 10 months later I’m starting to realize there could be so much more here. Sure, photography is my life. I work with photography and play with photography. But, photography still isn’t […]
