The Moon is magical.
To the right is Mars.

Blood Moon

This is the best I could do with a 16-85mm lens. My 28-200mm lens won't zoom anymore.

Auld Lang Syne | Happy New Year 2013!

Auld Lang Syne

Should Old Acquaintance be forgot,
and never thought upon;
The flames of Love extinguished,
and fully past and gone:
Is thy sweet Heart now grown so cold,
that loving Breast of thine;
That thou canst never once reflect
On Old long syne.

How did I manage to slow down with the camera at the tail end of 2012? I don’t know and I don’t like it. No, not one bit.

However I was not without a camera phone. Here are the photos I took in December via Instagram on my Flickr Feed.
Each photo was definitely a special moment. Enjoy! :)

The photos below are from August 2, 2012 at the Langham Hotel in Pasadena.
They have a beautiful garden area and the afternoon tea is divine.
If you don’t know, this is formerly The Ritz Carlton…
A beautiful and wonderful place.

SRElephants | Big Horn Music Festival

SRElephants performed live on Sunday August 26, 2012
at the 1st Annual Big Horn Musical Festival

It was a beautiful bluebird day, except without the snow.
Chairlift #1 took us up to the top of Mt. Baldy where we entered into
a wonderful time of alternative roots, sunshine, good folks, and good eatin’.
