Orange County Fair | Personal

Ahhh the fair :) I had an amazing time this year with some new friends. I actually rode more than 1 ride this time - although, I couldn't do the spinning, flipping ones. I'm getting old -__- But the rest of the group went on some ridiiiiculous rides (look up Speed). And in-between rides, we ate...and ate...and ate - deep fried snickers, deep fried zucchinis, french fries, chocolate dipped bacon, buttered corn, sugar-filled lemonade. BEST FAIR DAY EVER!

4th of July | Personal

Delicious food, water balloon fights, blowing up toys, painting boys' fingernails, and amazing fireworks! Yup, just another awesome 4th of July with Ryan's family.

The Wong men always put on the best firework show. And they're passing it on to the next generation. Last year, the kids discovered light painting...this year, they took it to a whole other level.

San Francisco: The Wong House | Travel

Welcome to the Wong House! Ryan's uncle and his family are very involved in the arts, so their house is a photographer's playground. Everywhere you looked there was something interesting to capture. I wanted to show just a bit of their house, but there is so much more!

For those of you still waiting for my Europe pictures, I am so sorry for the delay. I've been trying to keep my blog updated with current events, so I keep pushing Europe back. And now I'm even behind in doing that. I still have other S.F. pictures AND 4th of July to work on, so please bear with me.

San Francisco: Busing Around | Travel

What I love most about cities...public transportation! It's such an easy way to get around and takes away the stress from traffic. Walking or busing were our only form of transportation in San Francisco (parking was $3 for every 20 minutes!) It reminded me a lot of Europe. For whatever reason, I find buses and metros a really interesting place to shoot...you see all sorts of people. I was too shy to shoot strangers, but I got tons of shots of friends :P More pictures of other S.F. things to come.

San Francisco | Travel

Every July I go up to Sacramento to spend a week with Ryan and his family. This year, we decided to take a mini trip to San Francisco. I haven't been there since maybe...9? but it was still as if I was experiencing it for the first time. I love everything about this city. The streets are always crowded with the most interesting people. I could people watch forever. Two nights were definitely not enough to see everything. I have to make my way back before the year ends.
