Today was just one of those days where I wanted to stretch out, breathe, and relax. It’s nice knowing a place like this is so close and accessible to home.

Waking Up On the Other Side

_G5A4446It’s just another early Saturday morning with my friend. I’ve never been on this beach before so I was pretty excited. It was around 6.a.m. and the beach was deserted. We were hoping for a really nice sunrise since we always catch a good sunrise from the northern side of the Golden Gate Bridge. Nevertheless, it was a very relaxing morning. I hope to explore more of this area soon.

Downtown San Jose on a Rainy Day

On my first week of Winter Break, I didn’t really know what much else I could do. It’s been so cold that I don’t want to do anything that involved going outside other than work. This day was different, though. I just decided to go out and shoot. I brought my Canon Canonet QL17 with me as well as my S110. I mainly shot with my film camera, but I took some snaps with my point and shoot.

Morning at Coyote Hills

All I could remember this morning was shooting straight up out of bed at 8:40. I was to meet someone at 9 a.m., but for some reason, my alarm clock failed me. Upon getting up, I put on some jeans and grabbed my sweater and my camera bag.

I ended up here after my meeting, along with my new 50mm f/1.4 and my Canon 5D Mark III. I’ve lived around this area practically all my life.

On my walk, I found this little guy on the side. I wonder how many took notice and stopped by.

Realizing what time it was, I knew what I was in store for. I was so excited.

I pass by this area very often on my way to work. After seeing it so many times, I somewhat figured out what time winds come along and what time there are no winds. And with no winds like this, reflections are everywhere! I love reflections.

 

 

I made my way back after the winds started to come in. The water became infested with ripples and small waves in a matter of minutes. The reflections were gone.

Strange enough, on my way back, I ran into the same little cat. The cat was located in a different spot this time, and this time it was awake. 😀

Ever since I can remember, I’ve always come here to this park. It’s one of the places I’ve come to appreciate in this small town. Each and every visit, it never ceases to surprise me with life and beauty of nature. I can photograph this place over and over again, and each one will be different.
