Hollywood Hills

Hollywood Hills

Today’s photograph of Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills (and the 101) is brought to you by Mrs. Ramdolfi. It was actually a last minute occurrence. We suddenly realized that we were driving through a fantastic vantage point, and simply had to stop the car to take a picture — it’s ok, there weren’t any cars behind us.

The wife quickly jumped out of the car, and with her DSLR in hand, she took a brief moment to compose the perfect shot. Naturally, I took advantage of the situation to capture the most beautiful sight in all of Los Angeles, her.

Satisfied with her capture, she hopped back in the car right on time to resume traffic before other vehicles could approach us. It is moments like this one that make me appreciate the green grass in our own backyard.

Tell me, do you ever take a moment to appreciate the beauty in your own neighborhood?

Orcutt Ranch’s Rose Garden

Orcutt Ranch’s Rose Garden

While at our wedding venue walk-through last week, the wife-elect and I took a minute to capture some of the flora from the rose gardens at Orcutt Ranch — with a DSLR. The following are some of my favorite shots!



Tell me, what is your favorite rose color? What about your favorite type of flower? If you had to choose, would you rather receive a dozen roses or a box of chocolates?

Los Angeles Overcast

Los Angeles Overcast

Lately the weather has been unusual in Los Angeles. Namely we’ve had clouds, lots of clouds — which I was used to in the East Coast, but rarely encounter in the West Coast. DSLR in hand, I sought to capture the ominous vibe.

The sky was flooded with a grey that descended into fog from the mountains to the streets, blurring the divisions between heaven and earth. The sight gave me pause. Without realizing it, from the corner of my mouth a faint smile had formed.

The Front Yard

The Front Yard

There is a secret place in our neighborhood where we like to walk at night to relax. Sure, it is technically part of a hotel, but for us it is our spot.

Road to The Front Yard

Even the walk to our spot is relaxing. When it’s late enough and the cars are off the streets, we show our rebellious side and walk down the middle of the road.

We like to sit on the bench to the right, surrounded by lights, and enjoy the sound of the water falling in front of us. In a way, this is how we get nature in the city — with a dash of magic.

We even have ducks! They try to hide, but all those years of watching Duck Dynasty finally paid off! I absolutely love this hidden detail — the wife-elect however, is not amused.

We love this spot — our spot — for many reasons, including the fact that we finally had dinner here for our anniversary this year! Pro Tip: Try the Adobo French Fries, they were amazing!

Tell me, do you have a secret spot? Are you a nature-seeker, or do you stick to the city? Is night photography as challenging (yet incredibly fun) for you, as it is for me?

Aquarium of the Pacific

Aquarium of the Pacific

This Memorial Day Weekend was extra special, not just because it was my first three-day weekend with the startup, but because it was my wife-elect’s birthday! Her adventure of choice: The Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach, CA.

After surprising her with birthday cake, treats, and a present, we were on our way to explore marine life. It was a gorgeous sunny day in Los Angeles with clear skies and (for once) barely any traffic. To our delight, we were at the harbor within an hour!

We also decided to take the Nikon DSLR I gave her for Christmas last year, and we couldn’t be any happier with the results! It allowed us to take some incredible shots! But it also taught us just how difficult it is to be an animal photographer: very.

By the end of the day we were exhausted, but beyond thankful for the opportunity to sea so many amazing creatures up close. We even got to pet a stingray! Yeah, pet. If you are ever in town, we highly recommend the Aquarium of the Pacific.

Tell me, have you ever been to an aquarium? What is your favorite sea creature and why? Would you like to pet a fish, or do you prefer to observe from behind a glass?
