I was working in my studio last week and looked outside the window and saw this beauty. The week had been pretty rainy, foggy and chilly and I was super excited to capture this rainbow with my Canon camera. How often do we even get to see a rainbow anyway?
One of my most favorite subject to photograph are my children playing. There is so much joy and freedom expressed when I observe them play. If I'm not behind the camera, I try to jump right in to playing with them.
I loved the reflection of the trees in the puddle and knew I wanted a photo of this while on a stroll with my little ones. There is a beautiful contrast to the water, hard road and trees.
The fog this day was so beautiful as it surrounded the almond orchard trees. I wanted to take a photograph of my little ones with their silhouette but they weren't too keen on being photographed in the cold. Either way the image tone came out beautifully. An instant download print is available at my shop for purchase.

This photo was taken with my camera phone and I wanted to continue with an old personal project with no deadline. It has been a challenging few months in which I haven't been able to commit to photography or art as much as I hope but grateful for the times that I am able to do something creative.
What can I say about this image other than it makes my heart smile. Taken at La Jolla Beach, CA and how I really miss the ocean. The smell, the sound, the sand, the water...I hope to connect with it soon.
I love capturing blown bubbles and converting it into a black and white photograph. Hope you all blow some bubbles today.

I had a wonderful and relaxing vacation in Mexico and wanted to share a few more photos from my trip earlier this year. It is a trip I hope to take again and spend more time at the back and eating at the local restaurants.

This was a fun day meeting up with friends and enjoying a beautiful walk on Stanislaus campus. I knew I would be photographing some images as the campus is quite beautiful.

I am looking forward to exploring the beautiful scenery in central valley California. I took this in the Fall, which was peeking my curiosity with the brown, yellow, red, and orange hues softly shouting that it has arrived. I am looking forward to plenty of photo opportunities.

This photograph was taken at beautiful Stanislaus College and the landscaping is so very lovely. I take my kids there at times for walks. Plus it is fun to be back on a college campus.

I was sitting in church this past Sunday and enjoying the sermon about living our life in love. Many ideas for art emerged as well as one relating to this post. Jesus's sacrifice for us was described as a pleasing aroma to God and this had me thinking about the magnitude of love and living love out. I think God can not only see and feel love but he can smell the scent of love. Think on this, if love was a scent, what would it smell like? My 4 year old daughter once told me a white rose smelled like laughter. It would be interesting to hear her thoughts on this as well as yours. Share your comments below.

I took this image at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico of a local jumper who did this for a living. He relied on tips of tourists from his jumps. It was obvious that he also loved the thrill of it and I was nervous and excited to see him jump off this cliff into the water. The rocks made me even more nervous but he did a great job. And the scenery was just a great photo opportunity in itself!
Here is a sneak peek of a print that is inspired by my week long travel cruise adventure to Puerto Vallarta, Matzalan, and Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Influenced by blue tones, dots, lines and minimal elements. Check out my travel set prints available at my shop.

For those not familiar with the rich history of Cambodia's greatest traditional festival and national holiday, here's a bit of information about Cambodian New Year which is celebrated at the end of the harvesting season, when farmers enjoy the fruits of their labor which falls on April 13th or 14th. It can be a 3 day or week long celebration and everyone wishes each other and their families peace, happiness and success. I remembering growing up and celebrating Cambodian New Year in San Diego, where everyone in the Cambodian community would get together at local parks and enjoy drinks, food, games and bbq. The celebration was open to everyone of any background and to this day and in certain areas in the United States it is still celebrated. Wishing all of my Khmer peeps and those that celebrate this New Year, a year filled with bountiful harvest, prosperity, good health and great happiness.
