Ochs Orchard, Warwick, New York
Ochs Orchard is a favorite stop of mine whenever I’m up at my family’s house in Greenwood Lake. They have a few farm animals that I love to say hello to. This here is Misty the donkey. She enjoys apples and sneezing into your hands.

Woodlawn Cemetery, Bronx, New York
A friend and I decided to revisit the cemetery shortly after Hurricane Sandy hit New York. Downed trees were scattered all over the place - massive trees, literally bowed over and split, creating arches and barricades and gaping holes in the landscape. The cemetery held onto its beauty, however. Kept its residents safe, I suppose.

The Grand Canal, Venice, Italy
I’m not sure that I’ll ever be able to aptly verbalize what it feels like to arrive in Venice. I can say, with complete sincerity, that for me it feels like coming home. Seeing the domes of Salute growing near as the taxi approaches San Marco, my heart swells and I can only smile. I love this city with every fiber of my being.

Los Angeles County Music of Art, Los Angeles, California
I saw this little tricycle chained just outside of LACMA as we were leaving for the night. I assume it must be some kind of gimmick attached to the museum, but I’m not sure whether or not it actually is. Either way, the fact that had this big chain locking it to the bike post was just too adorable to pass up.
I had no tripod, so I plopped myself down on the concrete, but my camera was too front heavy to get the shot. Ashlyn loaned me the 50 Year Calendar I’d gotten her at the Griffith Observatory to prop up my lens and I was able to hit the little bit of long exposure I needed to get it right.

Ever since I first heard about the Neon Boneyard in Vegas, I’ve wanted to visit. I’ve planned it several times, but never actually followed through until this month. I not only got to visit Las Vegas, but also drove through Joshua Tree en route to Los Angeles (thanks to my awesome @vorpal_pen). More pics to follow, but for now, click here to visit the full set from my two days in Las Vegas.
