Some beautiful new music. I record music as Eleven Shadows. Immerse yourself in new worlds. And yes, I created some of this video with my Pentax camera and a Lensbaby lens! Check it out! Please let me know if you like it in the comments!
P.S. The video I created features the wondrous sculptures of Ricardo Breceda as well as a church and fountain in Borrego Springs, CA.

I had this really great idea for this photo, I really did. I was aimed the other way, attempting to shoot the the large rock cradled in the cathedral of rocks here at the Temple of Sinawava. But the super bright moon seemed determined to have its way with my wide angle lens, appearing wherever I seemed to aim it. I looked up at the stars in the other direction, and saw how beautiful the moonlight shone on this tree. Sometimes it’s good to look the other way. A good photo may be lurking in that direction.

Wat Thai Buddhist Temple monks praying. Photo is iso 500 1.6 second exposure, f/9 to blur the monk in the back, capturing some of his motion.
As in any large city, there are fantastic things for you to explore and photograph. We have an enormous Thai temple here in the north part of Los Angeles, and photographers and visitors are always welcome.
