Spring 2017

Due to working full time at a library and beginning my master’s program, I had little free for my hobby of photography this spring. I am taking an online master’s Library and Information Science program at San Jose State University, which meant tons of reading, research and late nights this semester.

I still tried to take some pictures, however. Here are a few pictures from January – May 2017.

Year in Review: 10 Photos of 2016

This year marks the third full year I have been into photography. While a filmed a few weddings and took event photos at work, this year I focused for the most part on my favorite genres of photography: architecture and nature.

In selecting these images, I attempted to go for a slow, reflective mood, as several only suggest there are people around and others feature people, cars and a plane in the background. Three were taken with disposable cameras, part of a two-year photo project. Of course, the wedding video has an upbeat, celebratory tone.

Anaheim transportation hub set to open this weekend

The Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, known as ARTIC, is set to open to passengers on Saturday, Dec. 6., when train and bus stops will officially transfer over to the transportation hub.

ARTIC’s first week appears to be a soft opening, with a community celebration and grand opening ceremony planned for Saturday, Dec. 13.

When I visited Wednesday night, Dec. 3, workers were still working on the station, despite a heavy downpour of rain that had lasted through the afternoon.

Here are some pictures I took of the station, a $180 million project that boasts energy-efficient panels and a modern design.

Photo Essay: Summer’s End in Orange County

Anaheim_ARTIC
Yeah, it’s summer year-round in Orange County, the sun-washed land of sandals, surf and suburbia. But still, the region shines in this time of late summer, when school gets back into session and a semblance of fall hits the Southern California region.

Here are a few landscapes and cityscapes I have taken while canvassing the county recently. This is by no means a completed project, and I hope to explore more of the Orange County region this fall.

Photos are best viewed in full resolution by clicking. Thank you.

Construction progresses for future Anaheim transportation hub

A mix of translucent polymer panels and exposed steel framework now, Anaheim’s future transportation hub is six months away from completion.

In recent months, the future 67,000-square-foot transit center has bloomed into a nearly 180-foot-tall conch shell-shaped building that has caught the attention of many motorists passing by it on the 57 Freeway.

Expected to be finished late this year, the ARTIC, which will be formally named the Anaheim Regional Transportation Intermodal Center, will be a hub for buses and AMTRAK and Metrolink trains.

Through a proposed Anaheim Rapid Connection streetcar project, the hub will also connect businessmen and tourists to Disneyland and other Anaheim attractions.

Construction is expected to be completed around December 2014, according to Clark Construction Group, which is overseeing the $180 million project.

Much of the interior of the terminal has yet to be built and furnished.

About a dozen people were injured Thursday afternoon when an Orange Unified school bus crashed into some trees on Nohl Ranch Road in Anaheim Hills.
According to the Orange County Register, 11 students and the driver were injured in the crash, which happened near the Anaheim Hills Golf Course.


The California Highway Patrol was leading the investigation, and Anaheim police officers and firefighters were at the scene.
The bus appeared to be lodged into a tree about 5-10 feet onto a steep hill just off the street.
The driver and students’ conditions were not known Thursday evening. According to the Orange Unified School District, the driver has been a full-time driver with the district since 2010.
