San Jose Beauty & Fashion Photographer | Post From My New Cool WordPress App

I love to be outdoor and travel quite a bit. I usually take thousands of pics using my iPhone. I found a WordPress App that gives me great flexibility to blog away from my computer.

My first mobile blog post…this is so cool!!! Popped in to see my girlfriend Malai at her new salon location this morning. She’s an esthetician and can tell you how to get beautiful skin just like hers.

Studio M 6485 Camden Ave, San Jose, CA 95120 |  (510)861-7503


Image I took of her in the studio a while back.

Congratulations Malai!!!

2012 Leadville Trail 100 I Event & Sport Destination Photographer

We photographers tend to put our own work on the back burner. I am working my way backward as well but this event happened back in mid-August 2012. For more information on this 100 mile bike race in Leadville, Colorado click link here 2012 Leadville Trail 100. I’m so very proud of Mike & the crew who took on this vigorous race, some first timers too! The crew was sponsored by Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield.
Congratulations to Mike, the crew and all racers for their dedication to year long training! If you ever get the chance to visit Leadville, Colorado you won’t be disappointed. It’s also the highest city in the United States at an elevation of 10,152. Try riding your bike through the mountains at that altitude!

I finally spotted Mike at the beginning of the race.

A few members of the crew.

After Mike finished Ken came over to congratulate Mike.

10’s Almaden Baseball All-Stars South Team – Bay Area Sport Photographer

Congrats to these Boys of Summer for making the 10 Year Old Almaden Baseball All-Star Team!  It was a good game to watch just because my son wasn’t playing, especially pitching, so I didn’t have a nail biting time while there.  I’m sure you mom’s know what I’m talking about!

The sun was out, the sky was blue, the smell of fresh popcorn was in the air and every now and then a whiff of hotdogs on the grill made my mouth water .  Ahh, those good ‘ole memories of baseball that I surely miss!  Had to watch my girlfriend’s son play just so I could get dust in my eyes, ha ha.  While there I took pics but didn’t move one bit so these were shot through the fence where I was sitting.  Enjoy!

Follow my brother-in-law, Ruben Gabriel, as he races the Singlehanded Transpac Race

My Brother-in-Law is a phenomenal sailor. In his second Singlehanded Transpac Race, he left San Francisco Bay on June 30, 2012 and his destination being Hanalei Bay. He’s still out there racing and you can follow his blog and track his race as well. The name of his boat is Rushmoore. Note: If you go to the tracking site, scroll over each boat to view names and drop and drag mouse to move ocean scene.

What an exciting adventure! Go Ruben!!!

Below is info I copied from his blog and can be found here. Photos sources unknown at this time.

“This is Ruben’s second Singlehanded Transpac, his first race was in 2008 aboard Sparky, a 22 foot Pearson Electra. He sailed fast and hard for the first half of the race and for the second half he sailed even harder.

680 miles from beautiful Hanalei Bay, he was dismasted. This slowed him down a bit, but it didn’t stop him. Through courage, determination and just plain strength, Ruben created 3 phases of a jury rig which carried him over the finish line 28 days from the start of the race. Our dear friend and 2008 competitor Robert Crawford, tells the story in his book, Black Feathers: A Pocket Racer Sails The Singlehanded TransPac. You can also view videos and read about it here.”
