Brooklyn's Ballet Recital Print

Brooklyn is still actively involved in ballet (with enthusiastic support from Jennifer) and we went to her recital in June on the afternoon we left to check into our timeshare at Newport Coast Villas. This year we couldn't get front row seats for the performance so I used my 70-200mm lens with an extender.

Disneyland for Brooklyn's 5th birthday Print

After enjoying the dual birthday party for Jennifer and Brooklyn, Sue and I joined Duane and Jennifer at Disneyland with Christopher, Brooklyn, and Brooklyn's two BFFs from school, Mia and Anna. We started with the character lunch at Ariel's Grotto in California Adventure, where Brooklyn, Mia and Anna changed into their own special character outfits so they could pose with each character as she came by during lunch. Cheryl Briiggs, an elementary school classmate of mine with whom I reconnected via Facebook, joined us at lunch and for the day. It was a wonderful day in the Happiest Place On Earth.

Birthday Party for Jennifer and Brooklyn Print

Jennifer and Brooklyn share the same birthday (March 5th) and it's always a treat to celebrate with (and for) them. We gathered on the 5th to do so and watch the hilarity involving the birthday table. Jennifer and Duane always put together a birthday table, which they decorate with a theme designed to amuse and/or annoy the birthday celebrant. As Jennifer is a Yankees fan, the table this year was particularly amusing.

City Lights January 2012 Print

On January 24, 2012, Mark Comon of Paul's Photo led us on yet another great city lights photo shoot in downtown Los Angeles.  We had dinner at Philippe The Original (home of the French dip sandwich), shot at Union Station, Olvera Street and Chinatown (although Kelsey and I stayed at Union Station) and then had dessert at the Original Pantry.  Another great night of photography.

Adamson House in Malibu, January 2012 Print

On New Year's Day, 2012, Sue and I went to the Adamson House in Malibu with Chris and Kelsey.  It's a beautiful home, well worth a visit any time (we had all been there before) but this day was a special tour by the docents.  They won't let you take photos inside (major bummer) but it's a great place to visit anyway, and the outdoor photography is cool.

Washington, DC, September 2011 Print

In September, 2011, I (once again) attended the NCBFAA Government Affairs Conference, so I signed up (once again) for the Monuments By Moonlight tour offered by Old Town Trolley Tours.  Since the NPS allows tripods now, it's a good opportunity to see a few monuments with some time for good night photography.  I was also able to take a photo from the balcony of a friend's penthouse apartment during the conference.  Always have a camera handy...

City Lights Photo Shoot, August, 2011 Print

Another great City Lights photo shoot with Mark Comon of Paul's Photo.  This time, Kelsey Van Hook and Duane's friend Kendal Leggett joined us for the fun.  We went back to the Griffith Observatory (via bus again--great idea, Mark) for a few hours and then went to Hollywood for some street shooting.  From there we walked back to Mels Diner for dessert and talk before boarding the bus to come back home.  A late night but a great night of shooting and fun.

New Dinosaur Hall at the L. A. Natural History Museum Print

The NHM Dinosaur Hall re-opened in July 2011 after a significant renovation and installation of multiple T-Rex exhibits.  We went to the member preview day with Jennifer, Christopher and Brooklyn and enjoyed everything immensely.  We're looking forward to going back, especially on an adults-only day so we can really read everything...

Fourth of July 2011 Print

On the Fourth of July, 2011, we went up to Christine's house in Pacific Palisades to watch the parade.  Jennifer, Duane, Christopher and Brooklyn were there, too.  The parade was great, as was everyone's company.

Christopher's Olympics Print

In June 2011, Christopher graduated from pre-school and, instead of a formal graduation ceremony, the school held an athletic event to demonstrate the athletic prowess of all.  Another must-see event for us, and it was gratifying to watch CJ enjoy himself so much.
