'Tis the Season for Family - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

‘Tis the season for family reunions around the world. Here in the US, Thanksgiving starts off a month-long series of holidays and events for get-togethers.

Family comes in all shapes and forms as if it won’t be right if we don’t take a concentrated dosage of reminder how life is supposed to be. Concentration means higher pitch, bright colors, and, almost guaranteed, deeper valleys. You know I wasn’t just talking about wines, music, holidays decorations and… and depressed wallets. :-)

Everybody in our lives come for a reason. There’s no customization when it comes to family and, therefore, family comes as is.

In my earlier days, if I come home and find myself being greeted by a family like the one depicted in this image, I’d want to turn around. But, I’m a big girl now. I may still prefer turning around and spending time with “more pleasant people”. I’d stay and try to see through the surface and accept the challenges that this certain family brings, or simply patiently waiting for them to reveal why in the world they come to my life. ;P

Happy holidays and enjoy the family! You know you will miss them the other 11 months of the year. ;-)

If Looks Could Kill - Los Angeles Travel Photographer

If looks could kill, I just about died upon sighting of this tiny fluff ball. At a standing height of roughly 10 inches, a burrowing owl is only slightly larger than an American robin.

Thankfully, I did not let the fierce stare-down discourage me and chose to give it space, along with a plethora of compliments. One of the two, or something else, seemed to have worked. She allowed me to be around her for half an hour until I absolutely had to leave, during which time she was giving me all kinds of looks (remember the red fox from Hokkaido?), including this one. I don’t know about you, I’m convinced that she really likes me. :-)

If looks could kill, I would have died many times. Thank you miss big-eyes.

To my human friends, happy owl-o-ween!

Has He Forgotten the Time? - Los Angeles Street Photographer

When much marketing efforts are made to woo the younger generations, it seems that the mature population may have been forgotten by the society.  As I understand the risk of jumping to conclusions too quickly, I wanted to be careful in committing to this conception, especially when my eyes were caught by this gentleman by the street of Carmel, California.  Maybe, he chose to be totally lost in his own world?

What do you think?
