I spent a good portion of my day out in the backyard shooting photos of birds. It was my 1st test of my new Canon 100-400m IS Lens. It performed quite well. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

I’ve been wanting to go here ever since I saw the photos from Google Earth. This is a hard place to describe. It’s a dog park, junkyard, urban art gallery, homeless camp kinda place. I was inspired by Tawny’s graffiti hike. I strolled the wilderness looking for and finally finding the most unusual artwork. Start […]

Today I met Chris & Tami’s new puppy Koa, the snoring, farting Frenchie. She so damn cute! She’ll howl until you pick her up just so she can fall asleep in your lap. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

When I went to the airport to pick up Sandy I ran up to the top floor of the parking garage to shoot this pano.  I got in trouble for being late, but panos are important. Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Today was a full day, got home past 10p after hanging out with Dido & family. Before that, I dropped in at SEC to attend noon mass with Mom. Then we met Dad for lunch at a Japanese restaurant. To torture me, he had uni and toro. I had ika. Mommy liked the edamame. Then […]

Spent three hours in a salon yesterday…three staff fussed over me, offering iced tea, coffee or little sandwiches while they worked on my hair. I haven’t decided whether to like it or to feel guilty over it. Ready to see my transformation? Here are photos before, during and after… Start Slide Show with PicLens Lite

Princess likes me, I think. When I rubbed her today, she had that same look Judy has when I scratch her head. Bad thing is whenever she sees me now, she expects attention. Fred is the same, but his best friend is Carlo. He’ll say hi but will look for Carlo immediately after or retreats […]

Got an email from Sandy… Hi hun, So far so good. Everyone met me at the airport, including Pinky who jumped between departure and arrival terminals just to see me before flying out to Hong Kong. I’m being overfed. Breakfast #2 was longganisa, eggs, rice, tamales. Daddy made me a special coffee blend of half brewed […]
