You’re ganna need a bigger boat

I spent the other day wandering around Oceanside Pier. It’s quite a popular fishing spot and the fact that there’s a Ruby’s Diner waiting for you at the end helps boost it’s popularity as well!

Take me out to the ball game

Here’s a few shots from my first MLB game I attended at Petco Park in San Diego.


San Diego Zoo

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 17/09/2010

I was lucky enough to head to the San Diego zoo the other day. I had heard good things about it from friends who had previously visited it and it didn’t disappoint. The place was huge!

I took lots of photos on the day but the combination of my 75-300mm lens and the low light conditions resulted in a lot of blurry photo. Oh well, I guess you live and you learn. Here are the shots that made the cut.

Pelican at Dusk

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 16/09/2010

I captured this image in Tulum, Mexico. Every afternoon a flock of pelicans would come down to the beach and dive for fish. I watched them for hours. The clouds above the pelican are a storm front. It didn’t actually storm on this day but I’m glad the clouds came to sandwich the pelican in my photo.

Rock the Bells LA

Here’s a few of the more unconventional photos I managed to take at this years Rock the Bells concert in San Bernardino, California. I left out all of the blurry shots of the stage and random people.

It’s good to have mates

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 14/09/2010

About a month ago I received a second hand Canon 20D from my mate Shain. He does a lot of wildlife photography and I get the feeling that the camera is somewhat possessed by some type of wildlife photographing spirit. It could also be because my other mate Alex donated his old “perv lens” to me. Whatever the reason, I’m finding out that wildlife photography is more challenging than I thought. Sometimes I wish animals would just slow down and chill out while I take their photo. It’s ok to feed animals Valium right?

Emails from mum

Posted in Photography by sanchovi on 07/09/2010

I love getting emails/texts from my mum. She’s new to the whole technological communication thing so what she writes and how she writes it is always entertaining. Here’s one of her latest creations:

“hope u are having a good time in mexico right now. the miss universe is from mexico, australia got third and philippines got 5th. enjoy yourself email me when u got time. love you……mom”

I like how all of the important issues are covered in this email.
