Here is a image I found in my folder I forgot about. I shot this with my Canon 5D. I didn't edited besides the mood. I do love the simple lighting and dark and light contrast.

I love this city and every part of it. I cant say enough great things about it. Its just one of those places I recommend everyone visiting every now and then, especially if  you get tired of the LA madness as I do from time to time.

This editorial is a different style I like to dive in to from time to time. The look and feel to this editorial is about textures and undertones. I never tell the same story twice so my ideas always change according to the time, season, current events, and mood. 

Japan tsunami debris monitoring begins in Southern California |

Japan tsunami debris monitoring 

begins in Southern California

The debris from the deadly earthquake and tsunami in Japan is washing up on the West Coast, and the formal search for that debris in Southern California began Friday.

Heal the Bay and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have set up two debris-monitoring stations in Palos Verdes and Malibu. These spots will be examined once a month over the next two years. Any debris suspected to be from Japan will be examined and tested. Experts say debris from Japan will likely wash ashore slowly over time.
Friday's search comes after a large piece of debris showed up on Oregon's coast on Wednesday. A dock float the size of a freight train box car traveled about 5,000 miles to reach the U.S. from a fishing port in Japan. The concrete and metal dock measured 66 feet long, 7 feet tall and 19 feet wide.
The Japanese government estimates that 1.5 million tons of debris from last year's tsunami is floating in the ocean.
Officials with NOAA's National Ocean Service said that in most cases, debris removal decisions will fall to individual states. Funding hasn't been determined.
Tsunami debris is hard to monitor and track. Winds and ocean currents regularly change, and rubbish can break up.
NOAA projects the debris has likely spread over an area roughly three times the size of the contiguous United States, but the agency can't pinpoint when or how much might eventually reach the coasts of Alaska, Washington, Oregon, California and Hawaii.

If the debris starts to wash ashore in large swaths, experts say more funding and more resources will be needed.
"If the debris rolls in massive fields, then there will have to be a very immediate response team that will have to form and figure out how to do it on a large scale," said Sarah Sikich with Heal the Bay.
NOAA does not have such a plan in its arsenal, but it hopes to have a solid plan in place by September.
Of crucial concern are the organisms and potentially hazardous material that could be mingled in the debris. The dock float in Oregon had hundreds and millions of individual organisms, including species of crab, algae and starfish native to Japan that has never before been seen on the West Coast.

"None of the debris that's coming across has been found to be radioactive. That's highly unlikely. But we want to make sure people's minds are put at rest so we always check," said Chris Havel with the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department.
The dock float is not the first piece of debris to wash ashore. A volleyball and soccer ball came ashore on Middleton Island in the Gulf of Alaska, and a Harley Davidson motorcycle and a shipping container came ashore on an island off of British Columbia.

Fur's flying as artist turns his dead cat into a helicopter

Article & Images by The Sun

MEOW's about that then? A wacky artist has turned his dead cat into a toy helicopter.
Dutchman Bart Jansen had his pet tabby Orville stuffed after he was accidentally run over by a car. Then he teamed up with radio controlled helicopter expert Arjen Beltman to attach propellers to each of Orville's four paws. The moggy — named after pioneering aviator Orville Wright — is now a piece of art. 
Tribute ... Jansen with his pet
Named the Orvillecopter, the piece is on show at the Kunstrai art festival in Amsterdam. Jansen said his creation is "half cat, half machine", and part of a visual art project to pay tribute to his pet.

Lift-off ... the Orvillecopter in flight
He revealed: "He will receive more powerful engines and larger props for his birthday."So this hopping will soon change into steady flight."

E3 Expo 2012 Opening Day - Innovation Unveiled!

 At $900 bucks for a 3 day pass this is definitely no joke with thousands of titles and 3 different convention halls to roam through.  Another year of coverage from the Electronic Entertainment Expo – better known as E3.  E3 is by far the largest electronic entertainment (or gaming) convention in the world and this year’s convention marks the 17th Annual Expo being held in downtown Los Angeles. Unlike the last few years, this year’s show is looking to be a very packed and exciting one with many tons of new software titles being shown as well as new console and PC hardware from some of industries’ largest names.  

Over the next three days, Legit Reviews will be on hand to give you a closer look at this Mecca for gamers.  We will be concentrating on the hardware-side of things, but as always, we will bring to you what we think will be the hottest software titles for 2012.  Of course Nintendo is making big news with the formal introduction of the Wii U, but Sony and Microsoft aren’t done as there are many people here talking about a possible announcement of new hardware by the holidays – can you say Xbox 720 or PlayStation 4??

Little Girl Banned From School Photo Because Of Her... HAIR BOW?

Little Girl Banned From School Photo Because Of Her... HAIR BOW?
Oh Daily Mail. We try so hard, but we just can't quit you. How can we be expected to when you bring us such gems as the feminist body hair protest and Kate Middleton's excessively muscled legs? We know that most of your stories are gimmicky, but every now and then there's a piece that resonates down to our very core. Today, we read just such a story. It's the tale of little Marcella Marino and her forbidden hair bow.

For Marcella's class photo day, her hairdresser father crafted a sweet bow made up of Marcella's long blonde hair. But before she could take her photo, the mean-spirited school officials pulled Marcella away, saying she was inappropriately dressed. Say what?

Apparently the school has a ban on all braids and hair accessories, and Marcella's cool coiff was in violation of that code. First of all, what kind of school bans braids? Second, it's a bow, not a braid. Third, is this girl not the most stylish little muffin you've ever seen? We're digging her striped shirt, structured blazer, and pièce-de-résistance hairstyle.

We don't understand why anyone would feel the need to crush Marcella's burgeoning sense of style with a restrictive, and frankly, completely ridiculous rule. How is her hair bow offensive or inappropriate? Does banning the bow somehow keep the other kids safe? We think she looks adorable and wish our dads had been that skilled with our strands. We'd definitely look back on our school photos with fonder memories if we had looked this chic. Plus, we're feeling more than a little bummed that the only photo little Marcella is going to have of her bow is this so-sad, near-tears shot. (The Daily Mail)

Should schools be allowed to ban certain hairstyles, or is this just another example of an administration gone mad with power?
