Photo Of The Day “Buster Posey, World Champ”

A little teaser photo from an awesome San Francisco Giants fundraiser benefit I was lucky enough to photograph last night onboard the amazing Cabernet yacht owned by Commodore Events. I love working for Commodore, especially for nights like this! Mix Master Mike from the Beastie Boys was spinning beats for the 400+ 30-somethings in attendance. It was a GREAT party….I can’t wait for the next one!

This photo speaks for itself. Buster Posey autographed bat, with a mini World Series Trophy in front of a photo of Buster holding the trophy…..ah, what a year!

Photo Of The Day : “The Swamps Of Hawaii”

This scene struck me as one of those classic scenes you see in your head when you think of Hawaii. Yet another scene from the beautiful Waimea Falls in the North Shore of O’ahu, Hawaii.

Photo Of The Day: “The God Of Cool”

You never know what you are going to see in the Napa Valley wine country. Such as this awesome statue at the Jacuzzi Family Vineyards. This was spotted during the annual April in Carneros event. Can anyone tell me which greek god this is?

Photo Of The Day : “Hawaiian Hibiscus”

Knowing that I was only going be in Hawaii for 72 hours, I had this grand vision of waking up in the morning, going straight out to the beach, setting up shop, drinking margaritas, mai thais, and beers all day and lighting a bonfire at night and not moving until it was time to go to bed. Or just sleep on the beach. Why not? Well imagine my shock and disappointment when it rained about 66 of the 72 hours I was there! But what started as disappointment quickly turned into a sense of gratefullness, as we may not have gone to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park is filled with everything a photographer could ask for. Birds, flowers, trees, rivers, waterfalls. It was paradise! This is a hibiscus, still wet from the last brief rainfall.

Photo Of The Day “Hawaiian Peacock”

I was lucky enough to take a last minute trip to the North Shore of O’ahu with my friend and his beautiful wife and kids, as well as his sister, her husband and their kids. Talk about a crash course in parenting! I am glad I got to spend this amazing few days with them before Mother’s day came upon us. Having no children of my own, it really gave me a better appreciation to what a parent has to go through on a daily basis. Happy Mother’s day!

Anyway, it wasn’t the tropical vacation I had necessarily envisioned. I dreamt of hot sun, warm sand, and cold Coronas. Instead I got mild temperatures, wet sand, and lots of STRONG rain. But hey, the Coronas were still cold! But without that rain and clouds, I don’t know if we would have made it to the beautiful Waimea Falls. This park consists of beautiful flowers and plants, gushing rivers, roaring waterfalls, and active wildlife. I was lucky enough to find a peacock who didn’t mind posing for the camera.

Photo Of The Day : “Living In Sin”

While photographing a friend of mine, I noticed this sweet frame trough the viewfinder. I thought it came out perfect. Porsche, leather pants, Corona, half a headlight. Damn it, this should be used for an advertisement for Porsche! Or Corona! Or BOTH!!! Pay me!!!!!!

Big thanks to Marlease for being in this awesome photograph, as well as the name for the photo. I HATE coming up with name.

Photo Of The Day: “The Machine”

I figured B-Wheezy need some love after his rough outing on Easter Sunday. This is Brian Wilson of the San Francisco Giants warming up in the bullpen on April 13th 2011. Wilson pitched a perfect 9th to save a 4-3 win over the hated Los Angeles Dodgers. GO GIANTS!

Photo Of The Day “Only In San Francisco – The Naked Man Bicycle Club”

“Only In San Francisco– The Naked Man Bicycle Club”

On Saturday, April 23rd, we took our buddy Sean to the San Francisco Giants game to celebrate his birthday. While having a pregame lunch at Tres Agaves restaurant, we were surprised when we looked out the window in front of our table to the site of a couple gentleman riding bicycles in nothing more than helmets and shoes. Now this was funny, yet we were very hungover from the night before, not to mention a mouth full of Mexican food, so it was also slightly sickening. After a couple seconds, they were gone. Now, the photographer in me was pretty bummed about missing this very uniquely San Francisco photograph. But to my luck, while we were standing out front after lunch, more bikers! After getting a great photo of my buddy Tom in front of the the merry nude bicyclist, I was able to snap this classic San Francisco photograph.

Photo Of The Day “Týn Cathedral”

“Týn Cathedral”

Ok, so I am officially in panic mode. I took thousands of photos in Europe. But, since this was a play trip, and not work, processing these photos became a monumental task. I would select certain photos here and there, process and upload. But since photography IS my full time job, client photos come first. So, alas, my Euro Raw files went on my Western Digital external hard drive, patiently waiting to be processed. Well, my WD hard drive (less than 6 months old) just stopped working. Out of the blue. Yay. So I brought it into the Geek squad at best buy, and they said there was an 80% chance that they would be successful. Well of course, with my luck, they weren’t. So now I am faced with the possibility that every raw file on my external hard drive is now GONE forever, including 3 weeks documenting my first trip to Europe. SWEET! Thank you Western Digital! Lesson learned though. I will be taking further steps in the future to have my files backed up on more than one device or on the cloud (although the cloud is insanely expensive).

So with my rant out of the way, I decided to share a photo from Europe I haven’t shared before. Maybe it will help ease the pain I am going through? 😦

This is the Týn Cathedral located in the Old Town Square in Prague, Czech Republic. Prague has some of the most incredible buildings in the world. A photographer’s dream city!
