California Bike Ride

I did quite a bit of biking around in California... easiest form of transportation around Newport. Parking in most beach towns is a nightmare. This night I decided to take a cruise to catch the sunset. I brought my G9 along to shoot some pictures but once I realized I missed the sunset I ended up just shooting the bike ride. And yes I am on a Crest bike... no I did not win it from a tube of toothpaste.

Last Day in CA

A little over a week ago I left California to come back to the east coast. I flew my friend Shawn out to make the long drive back with me. Driving across country by myself once was enough for me. Here are some shots from the final day in CA. Pictures from the drive back will be up soon.

All photos shot with a Canon G9.

This bird happened to swoop in just in time for the picture.

Went for a little bike ride.

One of the most amazing beaches I have ever been to. But it's a secret.

VT to CA Roadtrip

I just got back to Vermont from working at Quiksilver/Roxy for a little over 3 months in Southern California. If I wanted to have a car while I was out there I had to drive out. Sure this might sound fun, but when you have to do the drive in three days by yourself... it can be a bit crazy. On average I drove about 15 hours a day. To keep myself occupied I filmed my entire drive out there. I took the middle route so that I could hit Colorado and see some family. I finally got the chance to put together the footage of my trip.... here it is. Everything was filmed on my Canon G9. Let it load for a bit.

G9 Moment

Sometimes the perfect photo opportunities come out of the blue.... I guess some call is a "Kodak Moment". Well this was one of those moments.... but I'll call it a "G9 moment". I bring my little Canon G9 everywhere with me, just in case.
