Yesterday, I was able to meet my friends, Heather and Kristin's, dog Buddy. He is a very sweet and well trained puppy. The early morning light (we were up for the 3-Day for the Cure opening ceremony, pre-sunrise) created a really nice glow on his golden lab fur.

Found the latest in the ABC Challenge in Ventura this past weekend while I attended a photo walk as part of the third annual worldwide photo walk. This was part of a series of carnival rides that were parked and waiting to be set up for the Ventura County Fair.

The new Farley's on 65th is celebrating their grand opening today. If you live in the Bay Area, be sure to stop by and see the new place in Emeryville. They are already getting great reviews: http://www.yelp.com/biz/farleys-on-65th-emeryville-2.

Here is my "K". I had fun fiddling with settings in PhotoShop with this image to enhance the old wood feel and help bring out the rope to really show the K.

Finally, I'm posting my "J" in the ABC Challenge. I'm a bit late, and have been holding out for something that felt more like a J, but I like this shot and it's time to move on to the rest of the alphabet. Many letters still to come.

Now stop growing up, please!

I thought up this letter "i" after attending my friend Claudia's wedding. This is a small part of the table center piece, including one of the red tulips that were the main flower throughout.

Thanks for the color effects help Sarah.

Practicing for her big moment.

I actually posted this photo a few days ago when I was in South Carolina and really liked the irony of the new fire hydrant in front of all that remained of a burnt down house. After I posted it, a friend noticed there is an "H" in the photo, and now that I see it too, I like it and haven't found anything better, so I'm re-posting this as the latest installment in the ABC Challenge.

There is something I love about this series of photos, even though I didn't capture Maddie's face that well, but the pure joy of being 3 and on a swing with her candy ring.

A day late and not my favorite letter, but here is the next installment in the ABC challenge series. I will admit this one took a bit of styling to create, and was oddly inspired by the Jamba Juice logo.
