As you know, I’ve spent the past few weeks completing a residential move.  Moving is exciting, but also a lot of work!  However looking back over the events you sigh and think, “That wasn’t too bad!”  The problem is that it monopolized my time leaving nothing for photography.  I’ll be glad to get back to shooting this week!  There’s a new butterfly pavilion at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles and a relatively new park near downtown LA.  From what I’ve seen, there are breath-taking views of the city from this park!  There’s the lighthouse in Rancho Pales Verdes.  It’s just begging for me to shoot it!  And then, the sun always sets over the Pacific Ocean – and that’s always interesting!


Although there are many exciting facets to this move – like being closer to family and locating within an eclectic community, the really big excitement for me is the inclusion of a future studio.  Uh-oh…I think I may have just given the impression that the studio is more important than my family – not true…it only sounded that way!


Presently, the studio has only my computer and my camera equipment in it.  But tonight, I’ll be unpacking my new Canon Pixma Pro 9000 Mark II color printer!  This printer will print on various types of paper up to 13″x19″.  Later this week I’ll be adding several of my framed prints to create a gallery/studio atmosphere!

In the midst of the move, I had to gather these two prints which have been accepted as part of an exhibit at the Windows Gallery in Huntington Beach.

"Reflections" - Long Beach, California

"Evening Serenity" - Point Loma, California

I’d like to stop and thank you for your interest and support with my adventure!  Stay tuned because there are so many things in the works…it may take several blog posts to share them all!


Look for some shots of the gallery/studio soon.

  1. Congrats on all that you’ve accomplished Steve! (Your printer sounds awesome BTW.) I’ll continue looking forward to your posts.


  2. Thank you, Barb! But, I do want to be perfectly clear – so much of my “get-up-and-go” can be attributed to readers like you who challenge me with your comments, evaluations, and suggestions! I never thought I would share in a photography community like I’ve found here at WP!!



  3. So much excitement! How can you stand it? So glad to hear you are settling in and also for the news on your Windows entries! Whoo-Hoo! ~ Lynda


  4. Hi Lynda! Thanks for your kind words! It is pretty exciting! As I shared with Barb, I’m not letting you guys off the hook!! Many of my accomplishmnets can be directly attributed to your consistent input!! So…THANKS!! 🙂


  5. I love your photography – but I’m glad that your family is more important to you than this…. – and congratulations with those two exhibited photos!


  6. Congrats on your photos being featured. They’re beautiful. And moving can be fun but exhausting at the same time. All your time goes into it, but when it’s done you feel like you accomplished something 🙂


  7. Great photographs Steve, I love the soft colours in “Evening Serenity”. Hope the unpacking goes well (I always dread it…perhaps more than packing). 😀
