:: spring is here ::

Just wanted to share some photos from our trip :D We started out our vacation in sunny California. We decided to explore San Diego and on our way down, stopped by Carlsbad, California where they are well known for the Flower Fields. Here are just some random shots that I took.

After the flower fields, we headed down south to San Diego and drove around downtown. This was at the Seaport Village.

This shot was taken as we were driving over the awesome Coronado Bridge. Shooting wasn’t too bad, until I realized that we were so close to the side of the bridge (while driving). Andy decided to drive on the right-most lane and we both got freaked out when we both looked over the edge… yikes!

The next day, we headed out to Huntington Beach where our good friends Mark & Ping live.

Mark is a surf & lifestyle photographer. He was actually one of the people that inspired me to start shooting…

Check and see what inspired me here.

After much fun with family and friends in California, we drove to Las Vegas. On our way to Vegas, we stopped by Baker, California, where you’ll find the largest thermometer in the world. Unfortunately, I didn’t get a shot of the thermometer due to the fact that I was limited to the lens that I had on my camera. But look what we found! See image below… Is this what we have to look forward to? a whopping $4.05 per gallon of gas! yikes!

Last but not least, our family portrait… Little Misha was so interested in my sunglasses, she was so amazed to see her reflection on it! And of course, I had to dress her in a flower dress for the flower fields!

Thank you for letting me share… now we are energized and ready for the big season ahead of us!
