The Moment Of Zen

Photojoaquin the streets of downtown Oakland. It was Saturday morning and the streets were empty, it felt as if Oakland was all mine to capture. I walked up and down Broadway for almost five hours simply snapping away at anything that caught my eye, even taking the time to sit down and watch life pass me by. This was my “Zen Moment” finding peace and clarity doing what I absolutely love.

Warriors Parade

It’s been 40 years since Golden State last won a championship. No wonder on Friday June 19th, 2015 close to a million “Dub Nation” fans came to fill the streets of Oakland California to celebrate. At times I was squished in between so many people it was almost impossible to take any pictures, not to mention it was pretty damn hot as well! Regardless at the end of the day the experience was well worth it and I’d gladly do it all over again. 



What a crazy season and playoff run for the Golden State Warriors! Of course being a fan of theirs I’m happy they were able close it out and win the NBA Finals. Here are a few portraits I took of my dog Hudson showing off his “DubNation” pride!

A week with the GF-1

I’m often asked, “What’s a good camera I should buy?” So when a friend recently purchased a used Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 for $280, I was curious to see what I could do with it. Back in 2009 this camera was selling for around $1,000. Unfortunately in technology terms, five years means vintage! My overall impression, this is one of those rare times when I can use the words “good” and “cheap” in the same sentence.

A day at the park

Amazing how time just flies… I really can’t believe it’s been 10 years since the Oakland Athletics 20 game winning streak. As a fan of the A’s, it feels great to say I was at that game 10 years ago. Here are a few snaps I took at the streak anniversary weekend, this was Saturday’s game.
