Las Vegas 2018 Select Photos

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I’ve been, if I have the time, and I’m invited to go to Las Vegas, I go. Especially when it’s just a 45 minute flight and I’ll have someone with me to photograph and video. This time I stayed at The Aria and had a Strip view room. The best Las Vegas hotel room I’ve stayed in to date.  Continue reading

Tucson, Arizona 2018 Select Photos

This year, I’m trying something a new. A little more on that later because I’m still trying to get some things in place. Related to that, I went down to Tucson for an extended weekend. The first trip, I had gone with the intent of visiting the Arizona-Sonoran Desert Museum and eating at El Charro. This time around, I went for a different purpose but spent the entire trip in the downtown area and made another trip to El Charro. Continue reading

Chicago 2017 Select Photos

From two days in Los Angeles to one long layover in Chicago. A city synonymous with the word metropolis. A city with an identity all its own. Strong contributions to architecture, cinema, and the sports world. A city that has forcefully yet expertly woven itself into the fabric of United States history.

Los Angeles 2017 Select Photos

Los Angeles… Is it merely a place where people want to appear more important, more rich, more interesting than they really are? Is a higher status than those around you all there is to life? I can’t say it didn’t feel good cruising around Los Angeles in a fancy BMW 430i convertible. I can’t say I didn’t notice the curious glances and envious stares. I get why people subconsciously or even consciously crave to be envied. I felt what it was like and saw through the allure of being wanted. Pulling up to the trendy K-Town restaurant, Quarters, and seeing the girls turn their heads as I pulled into the valet. Alas, it was only a rented life, a life that isn’t mine, and possibly a life I may never live again. I made sure to enjoy it. Continue reading

The Out of Africa Wildlife Park 2016 Select Photos

The third and final destination from my holiday vacation was to another place that I’ve always wanted to go. On Christmas day, I ventured on an expedition to Camp Verde, stayed in a hotel and the next day, visited the Out of Africa Wildlife Park. Pushing up majestic mountains, cruising along gentle curves through snow falling silently down into the valleys below to go on an African adventure. Continue reading

The Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum 2016 Select Photos

I’m a little late getting around to these photos with the holidays and resetting back into post vacation, work life. But as I mentioned in my Las Vegas album, I decided to go on a few smaller road trips instead of flying far away. Continue reading

Las Vegas, Nevada 2016 Select Photos

I’ve lost count on the amount of times I’ve been to Las Vegas. I’ve gone with friends, I’ve gone with family, I’ve gone alone but I’ve always had a fun or at the very least an interesting time. Continue reading
