I need an explination

I noticed something at the "Freedom" gas station by my house yesterday. I pulled up to get some donuts and red bull, but I saw something awkward on the outside of the store.

Why was somebody hanging their clothes at the gas station? WHO was hanging the clothes? why did they choose to hang that shirt (that was inside out) on the ever so important Emergency Shutoff switch?! people are funny.
This reminds me of something I see when I shoot weddings. When I'm in the bride's room, taking pictures of everyone getting ready. 8 out of 10 times (if we are in a hotel room), the bride hangs her dress from the metal sprinkler head that sticks out of the ceiling. You know how dangerous that is for your dress!!? One day I tell you, i'm gonna see somebody's dress get drenched on accident.

I want more art. I need more wall space.

Black Sunday

The Sunday after Thanksgiving, a day that me and Sam would typically work (when i used to work retail), we didnt have to. I had a photoshoot in the morning, and after that we spent the day with Bella, went to the movies, went shopping, hung out with the dogs, and ate pizza.

We watched the new movie by Wes Anderson, "Fantastic Mr. Fox". This movie is awesome!!! I definitely recommend it to anyone who loves Wes Anderson movies (Life Aquatic, Bottle Rocket, Darjeeling Limited, etc.) It was super fun and catchy. The soundtrack wasnt as good as 'Life Aquatic' but there was some good stuff in there. Bella and Sam liked it too.
Popcorn for lunch.
After the movies we went over to Pearlridge to see if we could find some Christmas gifts. No luck. Nothing really caught our eye, at least the mall wasnt crowded, and we got to ride the 'courtesy cart' back and forth.
Bella and Mom wearing matching shoes.
After the mall, we took the dogs to the 'Bark Park' in mauka. It was getting late and it was getting cold, but the dogs had fun. Our dogs are always the smallest dogs at the park, most dogs just pee on them on get on with there lives.

They look more like little rabbits running around than dogs.

we ordered some pizza's from pizza hut from the park, then went home just in time to catch the delivery guy at our house.
Ate Pizza, took some warm showers, played xbox. good sunday night.

Road Trip memories. click to enlarge the memories

I was looking at my own blog today. I went through all of it, remembering what kind of crap I did this year (so far). One of the most definite awesome highlights from this year was the USA roadtrip we took in the spring. I copied some of the images from each spot we stopped in and reposted them here. I absolutely loved this trip!! It was me, sam, bella, our friend erin, and sam's brother, mom, and grandma, all packed into a minivan for a 4,000 mile trip. Dare I say, it may of been one of the best times in my life?... I do say yes.

We flew to San Fransisco, then drove through Yosemite, Grand canyon, new mexico, texas, georgia, then down to orlando, then flew back from Georgia. We experienced temperature changes everywhere between 39 degrees and 93 degrees in a little more than 3 weeks time. If you want to see all the details from this amazing trip, look back through my old posts in May 2009.

Here's some highlights.
