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.
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.

Before last Sunday, I haven’t carved a pumpkin in probably over ten years. I’m pleased with the result.
Here’s a photo of how it started:
I downloaded WordPress Logo Simplified CMYK Vector for print from WordPress.org.
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.
Amy and I have been married for one year, two months, and 26 days. It’s been amazing to share our lives together, and we’ve learned so much about ourselves.
Our big goal is to get out of debt. We continue to have fun budgeting once a week — it’s really fun! At the current rate we’re putting towards debt, we’ll be debt–free in just under nine months from now. Incredible! It’ll be excellent to reach Baby Step 3 with the Total Money Makeover.
I’m looking forward to many more years with my sweetheart!

I suppose the employees don’t walk through all of the aisles very often.
Amy and I are hanging out at Seal Beach with some friends. (When they get here, that is.)
Of course, it’s logical for me to read my backlog of saved articles and stuff (thanks to Instapaper) on my Kindle. I won’t get caught up, but…personal victory.
If Francis could speak, Amy would imitate that he’d say, “Don’t go, dad…”
See you in a week. :/
