Old Town Temecula Rod Run

I used to go to the Old Town Temecula Rod Run when it was first starting, and then for a few years. I don’t go anymore. It is just too crowded, and violent. That’s a shame, because I enjoyed walking through the old classic cars and catching some color in my camera. Here’s a shot from a few years ago taken on a regular day, not during the rod run. I changed the license plate in Photoshop.

Temecula Street Painting Festival

The Temecula Street Painting Festival is both fun to shoot, and fun to attend. The work the artists do with chalk on the pavement is amazing. They work from small drawings as a guide, and then blow up the scene on the street. The talent these folks have is just spectacular. If you haven’t been to one of these, I would encourage you to do so the next time they have one in Temecula, or in your local area.

Rush Hour In Temecula

Rush hour in Temecula. This is what a typical morning looks like in Temecula, from the air. Most of the balloons launch in the morning. It is a sight to see. Many of the balloons launch from local wineries, and have breakfast and or lunch deals with a winery. I’ve been up several times, and would highly recommend it if you have never been up in a balloon. Is is very peaceful. Since you are floating in the wind, and wind is relative, it is dead calm in the balloon. There is nothing else like it in the world.

Temecula Creek Inn Wedding

The Temecula Creek Inn is one of my favorite wedding venues. It has rolling green hills, and picturesque trees. This particular shot was done with off camera lighting so the ambient light was controlled and subdued. It is one of my favorite in my wedding portfolio.

Under the Stars

I was shooting the parade for a local pageant group that was in the parade. I saw the young marines roll out the flag, and my first reaction was to get a shot from under the flag. I had seen it done years ago in the newspaper, and the image stuck in my head. I took the same shot from both sides, and I like this one the best. Happy birthday America.
