Pair of Theives?

pairoftheives (2 of 2)I know .. the title is vague yet somewhat intriguing but the other day I came across an undergarment brand that is new to me. Im not sure how many of you guys have heard of them but if you haven’t then I recommend doing so very soon. I seen the underwear and undershirts that claim to be one of the most comfortable out there and I’m betting that you won’t find too many people that disagree. I also came across while shopping at Target (where I’m sure most of everyone goes) the Pair of Theives  kid and Dad sock set and man did it immediately spark my interest. I have never come across a combo like that, especially offering multiple sizes for kids. On top of that the socks came in a plethora of unique designs and color ways. I decided to purchase a pair for my son and I, needless to say that I found them comfortable enough to wear daily yet thin enough not to cause my feet to sweat ridiculously. On another note, my son did not want to take them off at the end of the day and was even more excited to be twins with dad.

Conclusion

If you’re looking for a comfortable sock that is breathable, fashionable and exactly the same in a mini version then this is the way to go. Visit their website to purchase yours today

The Somewhat Beautiful Seychelles 🇸🇨 


I know the title immediately gives you a bad vibe of the country but you must give me a chance to elaborate.

I visited Seychelles for the 1st time a few months ago while I was traveling and at 1st glance this place was probably the most outstandingly beautiful place I’ve ever laid my eyes on. I was just in Guam a month earlier and it has nothing on this place surely even though Guam is known for its amazing beaches and incredibly warm waters. Seychelles did not disappoint visually by any means. The waters were warm and extremely clear, you could look down through the water for at least 3-4ft. I had a chance to go snorkeling of the island of Mahe and there were so many tropical fish that would just engulf you as you swam in there ocean. Now like I said the water was very warm and comfortable but extremely salty! It was hands down the saltiest water I’ve ever swam in and even worse got into my mouth ! Eww! After that a few friends and I traveled to another of the near islands where we had an afternoon lunch with a group of local islanders that I must say was exquisite in a modest sense. There were even quite a few wild turtles that wandered around as we ate and viewed all the sites. At the beach there were crabs walking around on the shoreline and gigantic fruit spiders in the plan trees. There was a man chopping fresh coconut on the beach as well. Everything about this place just screamed “VACATION”.

Now for the downside ..dun dun dun. It was New Year’s Eve at the time of my visit and around 4pm everything on the island shutdown! I mean there was nothing open whatsoever except a few local convenience stores. My buddies and I walked for a while to several different restaurants and every single one was closed ! And believe me when I say that there are no fast food places on the island .. well at least none that I found. Now I know I sound like a baby but another thing I just couldn’t get use to is “Island Time.” It is actually a real thing. Like the traffic is slow, the wifi is slower and the food service is the slowest ! Everyone is in no rush at all and I mean neither was I but being a spoiled American that is use to having everything right away definitely did not play out to my benefit at all. It was just like everyone was completely fine with getting things done whenever. It would take the server 30 minutes to take our order and then maybe and hour or so to bring out the food, the another 30 minutes to bring the check! If anything it more frustrating that rewarding.

But besides my minuscule gripes and complaints, the Islands of Seychelles were absolutely gorgeous to say the least. I couldn’t describe them in any other words. I had the opportunity to take a few pictures from my time there and I hope you can enjoy and see the beauty I was able to see, but trust me when I say that the pictures don’t do this place justice. 

Horseshoe Bend, AZ

I first found out about Horseshoe Bend quite a few years back but I never took time out of my schedule to actually visit (Even though it’s a fairly short trip from where I am). From the 1st time I has seen picture from the cliff I was amazed at how naturally beautiful it was. I did research because I had no idea the name of the place but not too extensive because it is very popular and there are very many google results.

My trip from Scottsdale, Az  wasn’t very bad but long and tiresome indeed. It was about a 4 hour drive and iPhone maps indicated being only 15 minutes away and I couldn’t have been more excited. Finding it is pretty tricky because there aren’t any signs until you reach the actual parking area and if you are driving fast you can easily overlook it. There were several cars and even a bus there so I figured it’d be pretty crowded (it was around noon on a Monday). I was also unaware that there is about a mile and a half hike both ways and wasn’t really prepared because I had my wife and kids with me. I ended up pushing my sons stroller through the trail and I must admit it was a workout in the 90° heat! At last we arrive and it was breathtaking! People everywhere yet there still seemed to be ample opportunity and room to take photographs. There is no barrier or means of keeping tourist safe so exercise complete caution if you plan on taking photos or just site seeing. I stood on the ledge and it went straight down. I didn’t have to spend much time because it was hot and I didn’t want to ruin our family trip by trying to overtake it with photography so I restrained myself (even though it was quite difficult) and enjoyed the view with the family. It’s so easy to get caught up in taking pictures and completely ignore and ruin the event for everyone, so I definitely didn’t want to do that .. at least not today lol. After we were done site seeing we hiked back to the car to continue our trip and on to other adventures! I would recommend this site to anyone that loves landscape and photography, and also to anyone that just wants to see something very cool. I plan on taking a trip back very soon to capture some images 1st thing in the early morning but for now here a few snaps from the trip.. enjoy✌🏼️

Clatography and Why it’s Unique

“Clatographer” is the title given to a certain individual that has been granted the opportunity to be involved in Rastaclats photography program. If you are unaware, Rastaclat is a shoelace bracelet that has an extraordinary amount of color way possibilities and is the definition of “simple is smooth.” But anyway back to the topic at hand, Clatography gives young, ametuer and even professional photographers the ability to capture images of the Rastaclat products and display them in a way that can be expressed by only the photographer. It is a great way to spread the word about the Rastaclat brand and also a way to “Spread Positive Vibes” which is the Rastaclat motto. The community is growing everyday and being apart of the program is good for the development of photography but also for the development of morale amongst the community by spreading the positive vibe message.

What makes Clatography different is that no other company as of yet has had the idea to have a select group of photographers taking there photos and sending them back for advertisement. No other company has brought such a group of people together like the Rastaclat brand has done. They have shown that they do want to give back and it has benefited them greatly I’m sure.

I was given the opportunity to be a Clatographer and I gladly accepted the title and spread the word throughout San Diego. I have been a memeber since it was started and I must say that I have seen some amazing product placement shots, landscape and flat lays being photographed and there are a lot of great photographers working with Rastaclat. There are also many many styles of bracelets that can be purchased so there are so many combinations of shots that duplicate work isn’t really an issue. There are also benifits of being a Top Clatographer but I don’t want to elaborate because I’m not sure if that is really allowed. If you or anyone you know is interested in being apart of a positive community then take a few moments and apply to be a Clatographer -> Apply Now!

Here are just a few of the photos I’ve taken for Rastaclat

The Last Truffula Tree in La Jolla

treee

Yesterday I woke up at 5:30 (on my day off) to make a drive to La Jolla to capture the Dr Seuss tree. It’s not a long drive but it’s a sure must see for anyone not from the general area. It is located in Scripps Park in La Jolla. Quite a few people are unaware that Dr Seuss lived in La Jolla for a few years of his life and even though his home has not been disclosed to the public it is said that he drew the inspiration for the Truffle Trees from the sole tree in Scripps Park.

I’ve been there before but it was on an awful day that was super crowded. It was still dark and only a few people in sight. I started off shooting and it’s pretty simple to shoot, it being a tree and all but I took quite a few photos before I felt as if one was good enough. I walked back to my car and then went right back to the tree because I was still pretty iffy. The sun had come up now and the lighting was pretty good so I snapped a few more and tried to get a different angle and as I walked around I heard noises coming from the beach. I decided to investigate and to my surprise there was probably 100 seals spread out on the rocks and beach. It was a completely amazing view and situation and there was no way that I wasn’t going to take pictures of them. I was very skeptical at first since I watch a lot of shows where animals completely maul humans ( but oh gosh if I was mauled by a seal please don’t tell anyone) . I got pretty close and a giant seal (the pack leader I guess) got up and started howling but I kept snapping and hurried my way from off the rocks. On my way around I skimmed through my photos and I was pleasantly satisfied so I headed back to my car and called it a morning. I haven’t had the chance to shoot in a while due to my work schedule but it felt awesome to get back out. If you ever get a chance it is a great sight even for the people who aren’t photographers and just want to enjoy something amazing
