I love me some vintage old stuff.

Growing up with avid antiquers I have developed quite a fondness for the old and unique. I also have a love for gadgets and gizmos which means that I love old electronics. I recently purchased my first antique television just last Thanksgiving in Wrightwood, CA. Its a 1949 Philco! It works but I can't seem to get a good picture... other then the electronic static noise or snow. I hope to repair it someday and then have a christmas party at our place where we all sit around and watch It's a Wonderful Life on our 7" B/W Philco! How awesome would that be.

Anyways, I am becoming distracted. Recently, my dad has been in the market for a bicycle to bike to work on. He loves the vintage as well and has found Bowery Lane Bicycle Company which hand makes bikes in New York.

They currently have three different models with the Bronks Raw being my father and my favorite. Its made from steel and instead of painting it a solid color they leave it bear. They weld marks are clearly seen. Its really a great looking bike. I hope he buys one soon because I would love to test it before I take the plunge and buy one myself.

Curious Bird Media presents: Gorda Springs Resort

Just realized I never poster our Gorda Springs Resort video. I am very proud of this one and was helped greatly by my Brother-n-Law, Will Riggs. He helped me with the music and graphics.
We are hoping to start a little business together, Curious Bird Media, and I believe that this might be, technically, our very first piece!
Lots of fun.
Pretty shots.
Great timelapses.

First of Many... Guam Panoramics

This will hopefully be the first of many blog posts about my recent adventure to Guam with National Geographic. The purpose of the expedition was to photograph one of the deepest trenches in the ocean!

These panoramics were taken on our return trip to the trench to retrieve the drop-cams. I haven't had time to touch up the panoramics but will soon.
