June 21st 2009 - Father's Day

Explored! #27

Today was really nice. The girls woke me up this morning with breakfast in bed and presents to boot. I got some of the standard Father's Day gifts such as clothes and an electric beard trimmer and on top of that I got a REALLY nice camera bag! This thing has so many functions and options. The best part is that converts from a (hiking style) backback to a rolling cart with a telescopic handle. That'll definitely come in handy on those commercial shoots where I'm hauling a lot of gear.

After that we lounged about, I called my Dad and then that evening we went out for some Japanese food at Miyako. Clarissa suggested that she and I go see UP... which I was stoked about, but the last showing had already passed. So we settled on "Year One".

Before heading to the movies there was a beautiful sunset going on and Clarissa wanted to do some "jumping" shots with me so here we are!

Afterwards we headed to the movies and enjoyed the show. It was pretty funny... not like Talledega Nights or anything, but funny nonetheless.

Strobist info: Canon 430ex through an umbrella hastily set up at camera right. See the (hastily edited) video for more shots

memory in time( Patti ), excalipoor, and 30 other people added this photo to their favorites.
