Weekly Photo Challenge: From Lines to Patterns

Devoted
I took this photo of my friend David while we were shooting a video for my church college group.
The photo is really just a bunch of converging lines, from the camera slider to the light to the roof panels.

Bubblegum Alley – Weekly Photo Challenge: Focus

While on vacation this weekend, I found out about this quaint little spot in San Luis Obispo, California, where people have taken to sticking their gum on the wall. It is impressive how much gum can fit this narrow area, called Bubblegum Alley.

Fishing – Weekly Photo Challenge: Carefree

Lake fishing
Two teens fish at Eastlake in Yorba Linda, one of Orange County’s most luxurious communities, at sunset on Aug. 15, 2013.

I haven’t fished in a while (I keep meaning to), but fishing to me is always a relaxing experience, as is just hanging out at the lake to watch the sunset.

Half Dome – Weekly Photo Challenge: Masterpiece

Half Dome in Yosemite

I just got back from vacation at Yosemite, and Half Dome is a real masterpiece in God’s creation, one of the most beautiful things on Earth. A few days ago, I spent about an hour at a meadow watching the sunset fall over Yosemite Valley, finally painting Half Dome orange.

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World through Your Eyes

Band

My brother, center, and two friends practice playing music during a long summer evening in southern California a few nights ago. This was taken with a several-second exposure with the light coming from my friend Sergio’s (on the left) cell phone camera.

Their band is called the ruff draft and you can check out their music here:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Thankful


I’m thankful it’s Christmas time. This has been an intense semester and there have been many days that I have been so busy I have not even been able to think. I am thankful that Christmas has come, and I am celebrating it by decorating my desk at my newspaper job.
What I had to write for the newspaper yesterday was one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life. It was just so emotionally draining.
I just want to be thankful for Jesus and Christmas is the perfect time: “Joy to the world, the Lord is come!”

Photo Challenge: Mine (the Newsroom)

This is my newsroom, where I work as a copy editor for The Daily Titan, my college newspaper. I took these tonight during production to show a few of the editors as well as my computer and workspace. The guy in the white with a pen in his mouth in the first and last picture is David, a news editor. The guy with glasses in the third picture is Peter, a fellow copy editor.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

At sunset on Friday, my brothers and I took a stroll over to Shapell Stadium, home of the Yorba Linda High Mustangs, to watch the homecoming game against the Esperanza Aztecs. I then hiked up a dirt hill across the street from the stadium to get these photos.
