cruz bay sunset…

 

Its Cruz Bay, St. John, USVI!  Lovely sunset, eh?  Well, here’s the very special part…sunsets over St. John are very often silvery sunsets, rather than flame-hued.  Well, on this evening, the sky was shocking shades of pink and orange…and the entire town took notice!  Everyone was packing the streets and balconies to gaze at the sunset…and I was so happy to be a part of it!

Taken with the Canon Powershot G12.  Stay tuned for more snapshots of the USVI!

adieu, avalon…

Ah, yes.  Our tour of California is drawing to a close.  Here we have the view of the Avalon Harbor, hillside, and mountains.

Taken with the Powershot G12.

1 California photo left.   One.  As in the name of the Highway that I am wholeheartedly convinced is the best drive in the country.

Stay tuned!


atop avalon…

Short n’ sweet post today!  The view of Avalon on Catalina Island from atop the hillside!  Such a quaint little town.

Sorry for the long delay between posts!  Residency has been keeping me quite busy lately!


sunny sausalito…

Wow…I can’t believe its been a month and a half since my last post!!!!  So much going on!  I’m officially in the thick of my fourth (and last!) year of med school.  Rotations have been keeping me super-busy, as well as studying for the USMLE Step 2….and working on residency applications!  So, its 11:30 on a Saturday night and I’m missing my photoblog and I actually have a few spare minutes to post a post!

So, back to the California trip series of photos!  This shot was taken from our lunch table at Bar Bocce in Sausalito (right across the Golden Gate Bridge from San Francisco) the day we arrived in California.  Not a bad view to enjoy with a bite, eh?  A nice leisurely lunch to fortify ourselves for what would become an amazing (and mildly frightening) drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Santa Rosa!!!

By the way, did I mention that I didn’t realize we were driving across the Golden Gate Bridge until we were halfway across in our rented red Prius (what else would we drive in California?  A Corvette convertible?  Yup, had that booked for our trip until we realized that the trunk would hold ONE carry-on suitcase…so not-compatible with a week-long trip encompassing about  three climates.)…at which point I started squealing with glee (which I did quite a lot on this trip).  Sorry, Jay.  You didn’t need to hear out of your right ear, did you?  Nah…you can be a great pharmacist with one ear.

So, obviously the photo was taken with the Canon Powershot G12.  I officially was on vacation with my two loves:  el boyfriendo and the camera (shall I name it Cameron?).

Stay tuned for more (hopefully more frequent) posts…I have so much to share!!!


bunches of boats…

Boats on Puerto Morelos' Shoreline

“Twelve little boats, sitting in a row

Each colorful one with a rope in tow.

Docked for the day and dark starry night

Ready to depart at dawn’s first golden light.”

Okay, okay, perhaps its a cheesy little poem, but whatever.  I’m in an artsy mood.  I even arranged “Streets of Philadelphia” for SATB a cappella on Sunday with the boyfriend.  Photos and poems and songs, oh my!!

Anyhoo, this photo was taken with the amazing Canon G7 next to the fishing pier in Puerto Morelos, Mexico (right in front of the old lighthouse).  All of the boats were moored for the night and I was stunned by how much colorful character they all had.  That translated to a boat photoshoot!  To help you create  a better mental image of the Puerto Morelos fishing pier, if you faced the pier (looking out to the ocean), these boats were to the left and the previously-posted pelican was to the right!  Alright, here’s the pier:

Puerto Morelos Pier

The boat photo was cropped to remove the gargantuan dead fish that was on the beach and was then post-processed to an HDR photo!  Enjoy!!!!!!
