Santa Ana Zoo

The weather today was fabulous. Sunny and warm. It was low 80's degrees, but with the light breeze, it felt cooler.

Because of my time restriction, I didn't have the time to go to the Los Angeles zoo (pretty good size zoo and a bit of a drive) but hopefully sooner than later if the weather is nice. I decided to go to the Santa Ana zoo instead (a shorter drive) to take advantage of the weather. This zoo is much smaller than the Los Angeles zoo and the San Diego zoo, and it lacked the major animals such as the big cats (tigers, lions, etc), bears, and giraffes. However, it had the American Bald Eagle and a few farm animals.

By the way, I love goats.

The Transformers 2 Movie and Bumblebee

I don't do product photography and the pictures in this post are random and only for fun.

Because I am a six year old little boy trapped in an adult woman body, I'm going to see the Transformers 2 movie tonight. I also stopped by 7-11 last night after work to get me a Bumblebee slurpee in a Bumblebee slurpee cup and a Bumblebee straw.

By the way, I already finished drinking the slurpee (Bumblebee slurpee = mango and passion fruit) when I took these pictures.

Fan Page and Online Store

I've created a fan page on facebook. I figured that there are a lot of people on facebook and I can promote my photography there to get me more photo sessions and hopefully/eventually paid photo sessions. So if you're on facebook, you can join my fan page:


I've also created an online store to sell some of my photos. I'm still adding stuff to it. I've also linked it to my blogspot and fan page.

L.A. Pride

I went to L.A. Pride yesterday. I'm not gay, but I also don't get uncomfotable around gay people either. I didn't take that many pictures there because I don't know how to take "pretty" pictures at a public event for some reason. Here are some pictures for fun though.

They were dancing in the "Circuit Dance" area.

I noticed his shoes and thought they were fun.

San Diego Zoo

I went to the San Diego Zoo yesterday. It was overcast for the most part and the sun eventually came out. I took as many good pictures as I could.

I found one flower that looked pretty.

I also found a young peacock showing off his feathers. I could tell that he was young since a more mature peacock had a larger tail.

These are just two pictures, but these same pictures are also not on my website. To see more animal photos from the zoo, visit: http://anastasia.zenfolio.com/p181101443

San Dimas Dog Park and Some Randomness

I went to the Venice Beach Carnivale yesterday. I was rather disappointed since there weren't much to see there because it was a very small event. For a large beach area in a large city, it should have been a bigger event. There was one staging area and a lot of vendors selling merchandise. I expected to see the event similar to Mardi Gras because the website made the event sound like Mardi Gras, but I didn't see anyone wearing masqeurades or anything like that.

On the way home from the not so entertaining event, there was a kid who thought he'd be silly with his evil dolls. Apparently, he caught the attention of someone who carried a camera! I took a picture of this:

The kid with a two-headed evil doll

I am a member of this meetup group. I went to a dog park in San Dimas, CA this morning because there was a "meetup" for all the members who owned small breed dogs. Luckily, I had my own dog, so people didn't get suspicous of me being a weirdo with a camera taking pictures of everyone and their dogs. I took my dog with me because even though she liked greeting other dogs, she didn't know how to play with other dogs. She still doesn't, so I may have to take her to a dog park a few more times so she knows how to be a dog and play.

Sylvia and Chimmy

I did a photoshoot with Sylvia (model) and her chinchilla, Chimmy. Chinchillas may look like a hamster, but they are not. I think they're related to hamsters and rabbits.

Lisa Marie & Her Dog

I did a photoshoot with Lisa Marie (model) yesterday. The photoshoot is not about the dog. The main purpose of the photoshoot was to take photos of her AND her dog.

I attached the photo above to showcase how cute the dog was.
