It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. Finals are done as of 12 hours from now and my work load will ease up a little. I must say I am truly thankful for everything I have from my home, family, religion and all the other many blessings God has given me. From the looks of things, this will be my best semester yet despite my heavy work load which is really good. I've also grown as a photographer thanks to my awesome photo professor. Good news too...Im gettin a NEW CANON REBEL from my grandparents with 2 telophoto lens'!!! Just expanding my horizons. Here are some of my latest photos.

Well, haven't been doing too much in the way of photography lately with the work schedule picking back up agin as well as the school work getting a bit heavier, but I was able to make it back Downtown for my photo class and got some more blogworthy shots. The theme for this assignment was Urban Landscapes, and at first, I was kinda shy as to what to take, but opened the shutter up and let it rip. I really didn't think I got many good shots until i got home and did some minor editing, but I found out that a lot of them were actually pretty good, and my professor was quite impressed saying, "you have a really good eye for composition"! Anyways, they say a picture's worth a 1000 words so Im just gonna shut it now.hah Here ya go!

Well, as the year seems to continue to fly by faster and faster, I have actually had some free time from work to get some more photo opportunities! With midterms going on at school the past few weeks, it has been nice not having to work 30 hrs and having days off to relax and do what I love to do. My past 2 photo assignment required me to take night/low light photos and then portraitures this week, so I hit the road last week and visited downtown SD for the night and got some photos of the bay. Then this week, thanks to my little brother Cody, I had him model for my portraitures. For as long as I've been taking photo's I've always tried to kkeep people OUT of my pictures, so this was definately a change for me. As always, I am gonna go out and work with what I got, and I actually think some of the photos came out pretty good for me having no real "portraiture" experience". Well, just see for yourself!

I was glad to find out that i was given the weekend off from work, so the first thing that pops into my mind, other than just sleeping a bunch, was to go out and get some photos, so thats what I did earlier today. I had seen a special on TV about the Quail Botanical Garden in Encanitas and how it had a wide variety of plants, and I recently had an urge to visit, so low and behold, I had some free time and decided to pay the ,NOW, San Diego Botanical Garden a visit. It costs $14 with parking & enterance and in my view is pretty woth it giving all they have. So, I spent a few hours walking the many paths...and off the paths(broke a rule or 2.hah) and ended up getting some nice photos. My favorites are from the waterfall they had through the tropical gardens. anyways, I'll let my pictures do the rest of the talking...ENJOY!!!
