Pixar lobby 02

I have to say, I really enjoy visiting Pixar.  What I did not photograph yet is the straight on shot as you walk in which looks like a LARGE hanger.  It inspires me to think big.

Gladiator Film studies

One of my favorite past times.  The act of drawing the shots teaches me layout, editing, design, tones, lighting etc.

SW baby Zebra

This little guy was less than ten feet from our jeep!  Mom was close by keepin' a close eye on us.

Just makes me wanna drive fast!

This hood ornament on an old Chevy could not be passed up for a photo...Found it in the center of Glen Ellen during my weekend trip.

Bigger block Head?

Always been told I have a big, square head....Thought maybe I found my competition.

Safari West jeep (Jurassic Park Style)

Amazing giraffe encounter at Safaari West

I was at Safari West on Sunday and it was cold and drizzling..fortunately for my wife and I, SW offers blankets for their open air jeep tour.  Anyhow, because of the weather, some of the giraffes were in a barn like structure that we were allowed to enter on the walking section of the tour.  This brought us closer to the giraffe than I have ever been before.  I was told to take my baseball cap off because the giraffe may grab it off the top of my head.

The price of admission was more than compensated for with this intimate encounter.  I will post more photos and some video throughout the week.

This year is about writing...I am writing my third FORCE book and a live action screen play.  Sounds cliche but I do wish there was more time in a day or that I needed less sleep.
