Climbing Mountains is Exhausting!

Bear Peak, Boulder Colorado.

Summit of Bear Peak , located on the Flat Irons near Boulder Colorado.

Huffing and puffing up 8,000 ft peaks is tough work, however the reward is super sweet! This was my first Mount Summit, and it was a blast. I’m too tired to write a in-depth article (plus edit over 100 photos). So enjoy this stellar pano I took this morning upon reaching the summit!

God bless our Mothers! They show us love in thousands (more so infinite ) of ways. From birth they carry us for the next 2o some years of our lives. Teaching us, encouraging us, and comforting us, without mothers the world would be a much mor dark and dreary place.

meringue cookies

Lovely meringue cookies, made with love and a heavenly touch! So light and airy, eating only one would not suffice. My mom carefully created these beauties for such a spectacular day. She finds joy in creating wonderful treats for her family.

Mother and Son, on a beautiful Mother's Day.

Mother and Son, on a beautiful Mother’s Day.

Mothers are the core to the family, they help teach us the most important things in life, how to be loving and caring people. How to forgive and forget, and most importantly build us into mature men and women.

Thanks Moms!!!!!

Beer and Giant Jenga!?

Giant Jenga is a very deadly sport, huge bricks hurtling at people’s heads becomes s full contact sport….

Especially when liquor is involved! 1up bar is a working arcade with a full bar located in downtown Denver, and it is constantly packed.

They have all the great classics, from pong to pac man, and even skeeball. What better way to see who will be buying the next round based on the final skeeball score.

This place is a blast from the past, and if you can get to the giant Jenga tables, beware the splinters!

BOKEH

I Heart Bokeh

I’m sure many photographers have heard of these wonderful out-of-focus balls before, but for many it is an illusive subject. Bokeh, according to Dictionary.com , is the”…out-of-focus areas photographic image”. The origin of the word comes from japan and not only describes the cute blurring balls in images, but it can also describe a person’s state of mind. Kai Wong of Digital Rev does a stellar job of not only explaining what bokeh is, but he goes in depth on how to create wonderful bokeh in one’s images. Check the video below to see Kai in action.

Grave Bokeh

The photos in this article that I have taken, are very simple examples of what one can do to manipulate the shape of bokeh. All it takes is some black construction paper, a pair of craft knives (exacto-blades), and creativity, and your on your way to “Bokehlicious” images.

Cross Bokeh

Have fun and please, don’t run with scissors (or blades). It will end badly.
