Recently I got to hang out with an awesome couple, Ashley & Carlos and take some photos to celebrate their engagement.
There was so much natural beauty in New Zealand and the people were some of the nicest that I have met anywhere! I’m planning to go back there on holiday sometime soon.
While I was in Auckland I went on a day trip to Rangitoto Island. It is an island that is only 600 years old and has no top-soil, everything there grows in the volcanic rock and sand. It was amazing and beautiful and rugged, … and I got sunburnt. I wanted to share a quick photo from my excursion there. Theres many more that I still have to go through…

Recently, I had the opportunity to fly to Dublin, Ireland for work. Once I took care of my responsibilities, I had the majority of the afternoon to head out and do some sightseeing. I went to check out the Jameson Distillery and walked around town some. As is typical for Ireland, it was raining off and on. Fortunately, it’s the kind of rain that is just enough to be annoying, not the monsoon-like deluge of afternoon showers that we get in Florida.
Besides the distillery tour, I got to experience Aer Lingus’ Business Class product. It was nothing truly spectacular, but it was nice to experience something different from the major carriers on which I typically fly. And, fwiw this was the first trip where I used my Olloclip for most of the photos (all photos shot on my iPhone).
Local St Petersburg singer and a group fitness instructor, Kasondra Rose and I had been discussing doing some portraits for her marketing material. So we seized the moment while I was in town recently, and the evening sun was good, to run out and catch some beautiful portraits of her. Our shooting time was a little limited by Florida’s indigenous mosquito population but we still managed to get some great shots. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.
Last night I went out to hang to Crum’s Bar to hang out with AutopsyIV of NineBullets.net fame and see Fifth on the Floor play. Some great sounds from the band and Matty Rodgers (guitars, mandolin, harmonica, vocals) was killing it with some really unexpected chops on the guitar. They’re playing again tonight. If you’ve not been to Crum’s Bar (65 craft beers on tap) and are looking for something to do, go check it out. In the meantime, check out some photos…
I’m going to start posting an ongoing series of my travel photos here. Because of the nature of my work (Flight Paramedic), I will not be talking a whole lot about the details but you’ll get a lot of photos of the sights that I go see. They’re mostly from my iPhone and recently my iPhone with Olloclip (seriously, that thing is awesome! review to come).
I’d love any feedback on this stuff, follow me on twitter and hit me up. Now, on with the show…
Back in February I went to Tel Aviv and took the afternoon to go to Jerusalem I saw some of the oldest structures that I’ve ever seen, tried to understand religious practices that I’ve not had experience with before, and was thoroughly impressed and awed. Oh, by the way, Hebrew is a tough language.
