Views of Los Angeles

Haven't had much time to update the blog as I have been trying to get out to LA to go shooting. I also went deep sea tuna fishing for the first time a few weeks ago. Here are a few snaps I took:

We hit our limits so that's 70 yellowfin for 12 anglers. Other than getting sea sick it was a blast reeling them in. I think the biggest catch was around 40 lbs. We probably made every type of tuna imaginable, sashimi, seared, sushi, smoked, deep fried, etc, etc. Probably the freshest fish I will ever eat, but we are all sick of it so won't be eating any more anytime soon.

Here is a photo dump of random LA shots from the past weeks. I've been going out trying to find new spots to get a good view of the skyline.

Got some more spots lined up, so will probably be out for the next few weeks as well. We are also heading out to Big Sur for a weekend next month so hopefully the skies are clear for some Milky Way shots.

More from the South Bay

Been trying to get out and shoot more around home. Been heading into Long Beach and San Pedro for the past few weeks to re-shoot some shots during twilight as well as to try out some new shots. Funny how I have been able to reconnect with some old friends through InstaGram finding out that they have similar photography tastes. Been on an InstaGram kick lately, trying to stay active with one platform and engage with my followers so give me a shout if you are on IG:

Anyway, here are a few from the past weeks.

Trying to get out to Big Sur either this or next month to get some MilkyWay shots. I have been wanting to go back there for a while now.
