Sneak Peak from Reno

A last minute trip to Reno to see my very good friends the Powell's resulted in some amazing pics of some great people! I have to get up for work in a few short hours but I promised to put a couple pics on the blog. There are many more to come within the next couple of days as well as the story.

Until then....

Many pics from the Bay Area

Elton John is really upset he can't find his outfit right now.

smells like Eugene around here..

A very appropriately named event
LOVE the socks!

This guy was INTENSE!
uhhh, OK
The veggie section.
No comment.
If she doesn't scream Eugene, I don't know who does.
There was tea and crumpets served as well as pot and hash. What the heck is a crumpet anyway?
This girl was insane with the hula hoops!
A funky dance scene to say the least. I started to do my whole "Stayin Alive" disco shaking/gyrating thing and the DJ scratched the record as soon as he saw me, it was followed by an awkward silence, the sounds of crickets, a baby crying and my heart pounding out of my chest. Awkward.
Welcome to the Haight!
Alex used to come to this bar when he worked in the bay area. It had a great feel to it.
This is a great way to spend a lazy day off...seriously

I was sooo close to buying Lea a set of matching pasties and underwear here...luckily I had the voice of reason Alex with me to tell me that it would have been more a gift for me :)

Do they know how to do graffiti in San Francisco or what?

Ducking into the opera house to pee I grabbed this eerie shot in the hall. I am genuinely curious what you think of it.
A lot has been going on this month. I haven't been able to post much as I simply haven't had much time. This post will represent an accumulation of photo's from a couple of "trippy" experiences in San Francisco. A common theme in these places are strong reminders of my home town Eugene, OR. I shot pics at the Weird Fair and on Haight Street. Both places were "aromatic" in an herbal and B.O. type way. Funny stuff.

Back in San Francisco

Rock 101 Class of 2009

Just got back from an incredible week in Orlando at Rock 1o1. I learned so much, met so many great people including the top executives for Hard Rock and had an all around great time affirming the fact that I work for a seriously kick ass company!

After a long round of study time, I started to veg out in front of the TV when I heard a loud explosion outside the window. I thought I was going to have to make a run for it when I realized I did, but not for safety...for my camera!

There was a big Fireworks show happening and I had a great view. Scrambling to get a memory card, tripod, pocket wizards for a long exposure I managed to fire off this last shot of the finale. It was an added bonus to have the full moon in the shot too.

Had a burger here yesterday..yum
I didn't know I would be at Universal Studios this week, let alone meeting my heroes :)
Spending the week in Orlando for Rock 101 at the amazing and beautiful Hard Rock Hotel. Here are a few pics..
