15th Street, Newport Beach

I've had this project in the back of my mind for literally years. 
My memories of Newport Beach are so endearing that I've wanted to see if I could capture the "essence" of what made this place so special.

Lowepro Backpack Review

Ihad the opportunity to review Lowepro’s Flipside 400 AW backpack last year.  That backpack survived some intense hikes, including Angel's Landing and the Narrows in Zion National Park. To this day, The Flipside bag still remains one my favorite.

Multi-day treks with camping gear in tow mingling in the same cargo space as expensive camera gear create numerous concerns.  The added weight could compromise stability on rugged trails. Conventional backpacks aren't set up to secure delicate lenses and cameras. Good thing Lowepro specializes in just that. 

 The idea is to carry as much photography gear needed to capture the landscape but still have room for other essentials such as clothing layers, food, water, and first aid and accessories.

First Friday Phoenix

That mindless droning of the downtown business hub transforms into an eclectic mix of art, crafts, music, dancing, drinking, eating, incense, hedonism, religion and the "warm smell of colitas rising up through the air"
