My best photos from 2008

Jim Goldstein has a blog project asking people to display their best photos of 2008. Here are my choices:


Smoke break

Walt Disney Concert Hall

Walt Disney Concert Hall


A Huntington Beach sunset

Upgradable for air transit


Good day, sir (90/366)

When everyone takes notice

A blur behind me (64/366)


Overcome your fear

Finch at the UC Forum (University of San Diego)

Digging a hole

Kiss me


In the dreams of Costanza

Hit it out here

Don't hold your breath (126/366)

The difference between silence and psychosis


Corn dog goodness (181/366)

Kilauea Crater (170/366)

Let them embrace you


That's why my friends call me whiskers


1-up everyone else

When Starburst isn't enough (209/366)

Down you go

Bring the stripes back

Look, see how you attract attention? (183/366)


It'll be awhile before I return

You don't scare me

Choose your fate

Patience (219/366)


All that matters after a long day

Hey El Camino

Zorro (261/366)

I don't care if it's a cliché


Here come the clouds

Conditions in your favor (303/366)

Put your arm around her already

Before the mist rolls in (299/366)

As he waits for friends


Let's get outta here (335/366)

Getting it right

Worth the 32 miles (334/366)

Your patience astounds me

It's a blur (B&W)

No departures

The wait is mandatory


It'd freak me out sideways

Long Beach Lighthouse

What goes around comes around

The other side of the window (361/366)

10 minutes left (color)

First dance

Red sky at night, sailor's delight

Nightlife in Bluff Park (364/366)

Choosing my favorites for the year was one of the hardest things to do. I hope you enjoyed that recap!
