So the previous blog was from the day we landed. This is Day 1 of actually going out and touring the island. Technically it's the third day of the trip as on the first day, we flew in to Ecuador and spent the night there. The second day, what I am calling day 0, is when we flew to the Galapagos and relaxed a...

How is the video mode for the Lumix DMC FZ1000?

Well I'm back, it was a rough trip but it kicked my ass in a good way. I felt a bit energized from it. Anywhoo, here are the pics...I haven't decided what to do with the few vids yet.

Day 0, driving in the taxi from the airport into the Isle...I can see many storms going on in the distance.

Wow! I really need to go there then.  Gotta buy a decent camera first though.  Nice pics!

I've been so busy at work, I've lost the passion to edit photos but I'm hoping this will do something. I bought more camera accessories, a new underwater camera and I'm thinking-thinking-thinking of buying a GoPro Hero4.

I'll be back in May. Until then...

Lucky you!

It'll be a trip of a lifetime, hopefully I bring back some good video and pics.  @babal :D

I got a chance to hit up the Huntington Library, half immaculately manicured garden, half art/science/history museum.

I walked maybe one quarter of it. Part one of this 3-parter will be just the paintings. I'm trying this new thing where I ignore the frames because it's hard to keep both them and the painting in focus (they're shiny because their...

Basically there's one person who seems to be consistently looking at my blogs, one super-exciting someone ;), and so now I'm in to making blog posts.

This is the Redondo Beach Pier, my first visit in years...it burned down back in the 90s and a lot of what I remember as a kid has changed. But it looks terrific. And I love water...

For all of these pics, they turned out well but the SG preview makes them all look fuzzy and far away. Click for a sharp image. Careful with the snake pic, it jumps right out at ya.

I don't have much to say, I've been traveling a lot, working a lot, and I've started taking pics again. I'm in the market for a new camera...thinking about a Lumix.

Anywhoo, I originally had all of the pics in a certain order but the new SG insists on making everything difficult so here you go, a nice, illogical jumble...

And I saw all sorts of animals...my favorite was the honey badger.

And I went home, put the honey badger video on...lo and behold, today just happens to be the 3rd anniversary to the day of when the video was first uploaded. Quite a coincidence...

...and the honey badger still didn't give a shit.

Pictures soon.

Not sure if anyone is still out there and still reading blogs or not...this place seems to have no friends any more.

Anywhoo, I just, just got out of a very stressful situation. I'm going to try to relieve it by blogging a little.

I love lizards. I wound up chasing this guy and his buddies around for about 20 minutes. Finally he

...it would overwrite the other. But now SG has this mess of an interface where they just tile all of your recent blogs. Since that's the case, rather than do the old photodump style of blog after every trip, I'll just post a couple pics every day/few days or so. It's kinda nice since I don't feel overwhelmed and have...
