Chopsticks and Big Sky Sushi

The feast begins

I enjoyed a tasty sushi (and teriyaki chicken) dinner with Taylor and Josh at Big Sky Sushi in San Dimas. Afterwards, I brought up an idea to make a super short slo–mo video with my iPhone 5s. Josh humored me:

Considering I’m not actively promoting my photography, the Zenfolio email notification that I sold a print is a great way to end the day. Thank you, sir! You know who you are. :)

Cloudy day in Malibu

The cloudy and cool weather enticed Amy and me to drive to Leo Carrillo State Park Beach in Malibu. It was sprinkling for a few minutes, no big deal.

Instead of waiting to process the photo in Lightroom, I decided to choose this one for Camera+, while I’m on the beach.

Happy Sunday.

I walked a few blocks to Kersting Court in Sierra Madre to take these photos this morning. According to KABC-TV Los Angeles, there’s a brush fire in the foothills above Glendora and Azusa that was reported around 5:50am. It’s now 125 acres and growing.

Best of luck and safety to the 200+ firefighters that hustled out there.

Roll Your Own Photo Blog – WordCamp Los Angeles 2013

Wow, I had a blast speaking at WordCamp Los Angeles 2013 (WCLAX) explaining how to set up your own photo blog. Thank you all so much!

I described my talk as such on the WordCamp LA site:

Refusing to tie your content into third–party services like Instagram, Flickr, or Google+? Setup your own photo blog — no developer needed! You’ll learn how to organize your photos on your blog, look into image processing, and even delve a tiny bit into image metadata and copyright.

I just uploaded my Keynote slides to Scribd, but some slides are messed up.

If you’d like me to clarify anything, leave a comment here or send me an email through my contact form (especially if another service is better). I’m happy to discuss things over. :)

Thanks for your encouragement before and after my talk, listening to my thoughts and suggestions. Also, I wanted to give a special thanks to my wife, Amy, for being super helpful with preparing and rehearsing — and choosing cute photos of our cats. ;)
