This is what happens when you try to get a nice birthday selfie at the California Science Center- you get photobombed by the Space Shuttle…

Snapshot of a trio of Palm Trees as dusk begins…
Taking a break by going to the end of the Santa Monica Pier is something I do on occasion- the waves, the feeling of being in the ocean, the occasional big one that buffets the pier… One night, I decided to capture some of the amusement park on the pier, including the world famous Ferris Wheel, (which got a new lighting outfit a few years back). This is the result.
This concert was an absolutely incredible affair- putting aside the fact that I am a huge BSG fan, (seriously, drama in a scifi setting- don’t let the name slow you down from trying it), the music is just amazeballs… hearing it live, in a great venue, with grande acoustics- wow. (Seriously, YouTube it- there might be some black market copies of the full concert, but realistically, because that was a no-no, YouTube’s where to see snippets of it)
I had arrived early and grabbed a great spot- seriously, look at it- high, but not too high, center mass- let me see straight onto the stage, got a great sound, and was able to take some amazing shots too- this is the teaser shot, more than anything, but also gives a feel of the concert venue. (Most of the seating was below, directly below, or on the side in front but below frame)

Part II of the pictures
The news media, literally globally, has been reporting on a local construction project: taking down the Mulholland Drive bridge across the Interstate 405 freeway. So, I decided to play press today and get some pictures for you… Without further ado, I present… #CARMAGEDDON!
* note- all pictures taken today, July 16th- also, given the immediate nature, the pictures will be only 1200×800, instead of the usual 1800×1200
This picture was taken on June 5th, 2004. I happened to be in Northern Michigan at the time, looking for interesting angles on the Machinac Bridge when I heard Ronald Reagan had passed. Now, I should point out, I may not be a fan of his, but he was a much better and more reasonable person than critics and his supposed partisans make out nowadays. But as I heard the news, a color guard came to lower the flag shown here.
The solitary image of the flag at half-staff at one of America’s great architectural feats seemed an appropriate image to commemorate the passing of an American Statesman.
Well, for almost thirty years, (great, and now I feel old), I’ve been taking pictures. Originally, it was because, as a child, I was not fond of being in front of the camera. Using the wisdom of a child, I came to the shocking conclusion- if I was behind the camera, I wouldn’t be in the pictures… While I’m not so shy now, I still enjoy taking pictures. I put together Mysidian Moments Photography about ten years ago when I was still back east, and brought it with me to Beverly Hills.
And, over the years, I have taken a lot of pictures- honestly, some of them are quite lovely. So, I am starting this blog to share some of my favorites with you- maybe they’ll be yours too! Hope you’ll be a frequent visitor to the site!
