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!

once on this island…

A slightly different vantage point from high above Avalon on Catalina Island, California!  Love it!  I do have one small problem, though.  I just can’t decide if I like it better in black and white or in vivid color!  Which do you prefer?  Vote below!

Of course, taken with the Canon G12!!


yacht yearning…

Avalon Harbor

Here we have *yet another* shot from gorgeous and oh-so-photogenic Avalon, Catalina Island.  The yachts in the harbor!!  Don’t you wish you could chase down the Pacific horizon in one of these?  🙂

Of course, taken with the Canon Powershot G12.  Slight sepia tone added in Photoshop CS5…I love how the filter enhances the vibe of the photo!

Stay tuned for more!


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!!!
