I went with my photo group to Venice Beach and Canal yesterday. I first went to see the venice art gallery where some kids had done paintings and photographs. It was interesting. Of course the people at the boardwalk were the most interesting to photograph. I got several good shots.

It was a hot day so Edna and I decided to take a trip down to Laguna Beach again. It is so nice down there. Beautiful beach, lovely homes, no street trash 🙂 I could see myself living near there some day. I met an artist painter on the walkway. He was very interesting. I spoke to him for a while and found it funny that he had a business card and cell phone. The artist of the 21st century right.

I had a visit from my friend who lives in Chicago. He came here for a week. We did the whole tourist thing. We saw Beverly Hills, Malibu, Santa Monica Pier, Venice Beach, Huntington Gardens, Getty Museum, Old Town Pasadena, Bel Air, Downtown, Mullholland Drive, Hollywood at Highland, Walk of Fame, Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood Sign, and an entire day in Long Beach with a tour of the RMS Queen Mary Boat.

I had not seen my friend Christian in a while since he is working and going to school and keeps very busy. So when he invited me to this birthday party, I decided it would be a good chance to see him. It was a fun theme as you can see from the photos. My friend Momma also joined in on the fun. Made me remember what it was like to go out to clubs but still glad I do not do it frequently.

I had an assignment to shoot a sporting event. So since I have not done this before, I decided it would be best to go to a college game with easier access. I actually had a good time and learned a little about shooting this type of event.
