A day at Pt. Reyes with Bunny *UPDATED*

Bunny had a great idea to spend the day on Saturday up in Pt. Reyes, CA. We headed up first to visit the Miwok Indian village Kule Loklo
 While the sweatlodge was closed for us, we were able to peek in and see the beautiful embers and smoke as it wafted through the room.
 We headed around the rest of the village to look at the Kotcas (houses) and Bunny took some photos of me wandering around.
I took some photos of Bunny while we explored too

There were some great lizards climbing around the different buildings, they posed beautifully for me.
 Inside the Family Sweatlodge, there was no fire, but there was a beautiful soft light streaming through the chimney.
 This little lizard was my favorite, so calm and pretty.

 After the village I wanted to head up the coast to see the lighthouse. I have never seen a coastline anywhere I've been before. It was absolutely breathtaking. Miles and miles of unspoiled beaches as far as we could see.
 The point was high up on the cliffs, surrounded on 3 sides by the ocean.
The lighthouse was a 30-story stairway down the rocks - it was cold and windy so we opted not to make the hike. Thankfully, my camera has a GREAT zoom lens.
 We headed back to Olema after all of our adventuring to warm up a bit. Locally sourced clam chowder and this massive oyster po-boy. A delicious end to the the afternoon (well, it still took a few hours on the CA-1 to get back to San Francisco).

Birthday Wanderings with Plastic Bullet Camera

Eman and I had dinner at the Chaya in Downtown LA last night to celebrate my birthday - a great meal with a phenomenal and yet unique atmosphere when compared to the one in San Francisco that I've eaten at several times.

Waiting for Eman to get home from the hospital, I walked around downtown for a little while and snapped some photos that were just begging for the filtering magic of Plastic Bullet.

Another year is going by

Well, tomorrow is my birthday - 24 years have come and gone (and I still have to go to work tomorrow)
I'm also really close to my 550th blog post! More than likely that will come up in the next few days. I'm toying with the idea of Blog2Print, a service that can print out my blog as a book - mostly I was thinking about doing the original 365 day photo project that started I made a coffee table book of photos after I visited Nicaragua and Costa Rica in 2006, and have always gotten compliments on it. The first year of this blog was really a journal of my senior year of college, so having it printed and bound would be a really nice way to share it without having to pull up a computer (even though I recognize the irony). I thought this photo would be fun to post - the date is wrong since we didn't have Twinkie until 2001, but that puts this picture right around 10 years ago. So much has changed since then!
