Spring Flowers at the LA Flower Market

This morning K and I visited the The Original LA Flower Market in the heart of the bustling LA Flower District downtown. As you could probably expect, it was a sea of colorful and fragrant fresh flowers, both potted and cut.  We picked up a few for a dinner party tomorrow night, and I snapped some photos with my new camera lens, a Canon f1.8 50mm prime lens that takes sharp photos with a nice shallow depth of field.

2014 Rose Parade


We started 2014 off with an early start – the 2014 Rose Parade in Pasadena, CA.

Beautiful floats, lots of bands, and great weather combined for a full day of Southern Cali culture. Here are a few pics I snapped with my Canon T3i (with 55-250mm zoom lens) and some from my new GoPro Hero 3.

First visit to The Huntington

Spent a few hours wondering around the beautiful grounds of The Huntington Library and Gardens this weekend and had a great time checking out all the plant life. It’s a really peaceful place with so much to see, much more than can be covered in one day, so I’m sure I’ll be back.
