falconry is not a lost hobby
Adam’s Falconry Service is a dynamic and complex service helping to control an over abundance of invasive species, such as rodents, in sensitive areas. Adam is not only a very likeable guy, his knowledge and experience is based on many decades of working professionally with falcons and other raptors. He’s fully licensed and his birds are obviously very well taken care of. Beautiful raptors worth seeing up close.
Just one of the many things to check out in San Juan Capistrano. He has scheduled public access for people to visit, become more educated, and even a chance to handle the birds.

June MoonShine 2012, Year of the Dragon
I was enjoying the warmth of the sun on a cool June evening as it entered my home from the patio. I imagined it as a view of all the possible views; ocean, land and sky. There are a few hidden elements that I did not include intentionally. Under the stool is an iconic image of a dragon, 2012 being the year of the dragon. Also, I did not notice the bright light emanating from the palm of my right hand until after I finished the project. I am a LightWorker and I use my right hand for the active, hands-on work. The sunset and cloud were an image I took, then overlaid on to the image of the ocean and cliffs in the distance. I used 6 images to make this composit.
Well, I was bored one day…so, I found a few bad pics of faces that I had taken, so I decided to distort them for entertainment before I deleted them. I can’t say I love them, but they are…unusual.
Don’t be disturbed by the vaguely evil look the baby is giving. It was never really a baby. Just a friend making a face that looks like a potentially scary baby.
From my Android…no, not my robot, just my phone and a little collage app called Collage Maker Pro, which I would enjoy more if they didn’t have so many popups repeatedly nagging me to…I don’t know what, buy it again? Buy their other apps which will also keep bugging me with pop-up adds about “Getting an awesome new career at X collage…” instead of letting me enjoy their product. Hey, I would pay a lot more for a great app that didn’t annoy me and was managed well, but I’ve got two degrees and a great career. I suppose I’m not their intended target market, but that’s their mistake. Focusing on a great product instead of fidgeting a so-so one then trying to pad their pockets with ad pennies is selling oneself short instead of being the best they can be. It’s coming from a place of lacking, of fearing one won’t get enough of the rising dough. It will always leave them hungry for more because they will never get enough satisfaction with that mentality. I’m just saying…
What was I thinking?
I could have stood any other way, except on my head, and this image would have been better framed. This is the FIXED version. Straightened and cropped, straightened and cropped…

How Do You Move a 340-Ton Piece of Artwork?
Very carefully of course!
This granite boulder from the Stone Valley Quarry was moved to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art 60 miles away. Nine nights traveling through the crowded metropolis at six miles an hour was quite a feat considering the pebble was 21-foot-high and 340 tons. It’s difficult to appreciate the size of this stone until you view the video of it crawling down the LA streets. More Photos »
So, I thought I should stand under it.
