Aerial View of Downtown San Diego

The most relaxing city ever by the water. While flying across San Diego downtown, I captured this photo of the downtown skyline, clear blue sky, and sparkling ocean in the distance. Absolutely breathtaking.

Magic Star Dust: Aurora and Fireflies Imagery

Fireflies Imagery Part III: A mashup of past work with aurora, stars, mountains, and fireflies all mixed together.

I looked back at my previous multimedia projects and was inspired to create one with all of the unique elements merged together. First, I chose two mountain photos and then began designing the background with a mix of a blue-green gradient. Then, I mixed in pink and white hues to the sky and sprinkled star dust all over (with a slight blur effect) to give it a nice night-time glow and a subtle aurora vibe. After adding in the fireflies art and some human aspect to the photo, I enhanced the brightness, saturation, and contrast to make the image even more striking and intriguing.

The City Contrast: Diverse Architecture and Design

The world is filled with contradictions. Cities are filled with contrasting architecture.

Case in point: this view right here in North Beach. The famous Columbus Tower and Transamerica pyramid are both unique in their own way and have very distinctive styles that set them apart from the rest. A beautiful contrast that offers a cool perspective for city locals and visitors alike.

On the Rocks: Colorado River Views from Mount Bonnell

A nice hike up Mount Bonnell with stunning views of the long Colorado River flowing through Austin. We walk all around the mountain and find views of the river from left to right, including nearby parks, houses, and the faraway skyline of Austin downtown.

Magnificent Sunset and Sea Lions at La Jolla Cove

La Jolla Cove Part II: A beautiful, spectacular sunset with partly cloudy skies and soft, pastel orange-yellow hues in the sky. Light blue-grey hues in the water add to the relaxing imagery.

Look closely at the rocks...and you will also see sea lions!!
