Catalina

Went to Catalina beginning of this Summer and I've been meaning to post this but never got to it.

I've been living in California for almost 25 years and this was my first trip to Catalina Islands.

We took Catalina Express from port of Long Beach to Avalon.

We arrived at Avalon and headed straight for Original Jack's

I've been yelp searching for awhile and came across this awesome place.

 

Happy Sally, happy me. =)

Made a reservation for the humbi tour before I went to island and got something of a private tour due us being the only ones at that time slot.

BeatSonic USA FRS shoot in DTLA

Had a such a blast with my old friend Eric, from BeatSonicUSA last Saturday roaming the streets of Los Angeles.

Everything was planned but so spontaneous, initial shoot was suppose to be late night in DTLA.

But somehow while we were scouting for more spots we ended up at the bottom of LA river.

Also had a pleasure of meeting Pepper, who showed us some pointers on how everything works down there.

back in early 90's I went to LA Auto Show with my dad and saw this awesome shot of Supra racing towards you.

After the first part of the shoot we grabbed dinner & tea with some friends and chilled until LA night life ended.  But soon realized that's about 5am and we weren't going to wait that long.

Went to the tracks to get some nice downtown shots on the background.

At one point we thought we were going to walk home.

Main goal at this shoot was try not to use too much of my wide angle lens.  Most the of the shots you see consists with my 50mm, 85mm, and 105mm.
