..i was kinda wishing that i could be at the beach a while ago, but then again, it was over 100Â°Â F.. i stayed at home and slept instead.. 🙂
..so i’ve been seeing wordless wednesday posts around and decided to give it a go.. but wait, i’ve typed in words.. then this post doesn’t count, right? 😀
..took this while i was down by Crescent Bay in Laguna Beach.. there was a spot that looked very, very promising, but before reaching that, i had to traverse through the beach, and up some slippery rocks with some waves crashing up because of high tide while wearing flip flops and lugging several pounds of gear.. well, that didn’t end well, i ended up missing a step and slipped.. my cam was spared, but my shin & knee wasn’t.. at least i got some good ones.. lol.. i’ll try returning for some more shots later..
..i wasn’t there but saw it online, Kelly Slater won the competition and bagged the $105,000 prize..
..my bird ID’ing skills aren’t up to par yet, but i think this is a pacific golden plover.. 🙂
..the end of the week, a finish line spent at the beach..
..after a 2-day lay day, the event coordinators decided to push through with the competition at Trestles.. i chose to go back as well.. it was a cool, cloudy day.. the waves were just alright..
..this is Taylor Knox aka “TK” during the men’s heat # 10, round 2..
..a surfer getting out of the water..
..went to watch a surfing competition at Trestles, but found out later it was postponed for thursday.. bummer..
..if you take a look at the upper right frame of yesterday’s post, you’d notice that this is how it looks like up close..
..this was where i was stalking the humming bird i shot a few posts back..
..when not flitting around from flower to flower, the humming bird just hangs around and chills..
..the good thing with being the driver on a road trip is that you get to choose when and where to stop.. well, since i was the driver, i get to do that.. and that’s exactly what i did.. that’s why it took us almost a week to get to San Francisco and back.. here’s one of the first stops, somewhere around the Gaviota State Park..
..gotta slurp your ramen in style..
McWay Falls is an 80 foot waterfall located in Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park that flows year-round. Like Alamere Falls, this waterfall is one of only two in the region that are close enough to the ocean to be referred as “tidefalls”. It is located on McWay Creek.Although it can be viewed via a trail from above, the beach and scenic cove below is difficult to access by land, however, it could be easily reached by boat. Even with this possibility, it is not recommended that people visit the beach as a safety precaution due to crumbling cliffs and environmental reasons.
..for those of you boozing this long weekend, recycle your beer cans.. 🙂
..i’ve been going through the shots i got from AX 2010 and have been finding blog-worthy posts.. like this one of Crocodile from the manga/anime series One Piece..
..when you started shooting, you must’ve seen some stunning images of hummingbirds and wanted to capture one yourself.. but if there aren’t any of them around you, well, tough luck.. or if there were, chances are, you don’t have the right lens on, or were too late pressing the shutter.. because they’re really FAST!Â ..well, it definitely wasn’t easy shooting this hummingbird, but i’m glad i got a decent shot.. 🙂
what’s with the purse?
