What can I say, time is running fast when you have a nice time. Last 5 days I was on the road with my fellow students. San Francisco – Las Vegas – Grand Canyon – Hollywood – Santa Barbara was the main points on our map. A lots of pictures and videos ware taken during this trip and now they are somewhere in my HDD. But now its about that time when my American trip is about to end soon. I am spending last days in San Francisco in hostel. My 27 birthday is coming after 2 days and according to my schedule I will spend this day in the air, because I am flying home!
More updates coming soon!
In Latvian language we have saying “what comes long time, comes good” and my roadtrip video is finally here. There wasn’t that much time as I would like to film on the road because of our tight time-plan. We had to keep rolling, but in the same time we were filming with Panasonic TM700, Canon 550d, using mics and a GoPro outside/inside the car to make it interesting. So enjoy!
It was a long ride and when I was not driving the car I was trying to sleep in my passenger seat, but when Latvian boy saw this American nature outside the car window, he could not sleep at all. So here are some pictures of American nature and of course my foto-models Albert and Ragga!
Hi my reader! It’s been a while since last Ingeezzy’s blog post, deem, almoast 2 weeks. But the good news is that I am back with some new pixels and video clips from roadtrip San Francisco, California - Austin, Texas – San Francisco, California. Around 3900 miles on the road performed by 2 drivers and 1 full time copilot. We were crossing 4 states (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas) to get to Austin. So here is couple pictures from Hollywood where we stopped on the way back. Hollywood boulevard, famous Kodak Theater where Oscar ceremony is held, Superman, Merilin Monroe lookalikes and much more.
Today I went to visit one of the famoust tourist attractions in San Francisco - China Town. A lot of souvenir shops that are packed with made in China textiles and also different funny stuff. Chinese food was very good, weather was sunny and I got some good photo shots. Today I experimented with HDR picture making process and you can see the result right here.
Fleet Week is a American event where trained pilots make some nice airplane tricks in the air. And it’s also about demonstrating American military power. First time in my life (and I hope for the last time) I saw that triangle bomber plane that has been throwing bombs all around the globe (Afganistan, Yugoslavia, Iraq and other hot spots). PEACE
It’s one of those rainy days. It is cold and rain drops are hitting the window. Deem it’s hard to sit all day in front of my pc and be creative. I took some time to enjoy American TV. A lot of TV channels in here and you always can find something watchable. Only thing I do not like about it is commercials after every 10 min. How can you watch horror movie if there is commercial every 10 minutes. How scary is that?
It might seem that making pictures in sunset is a easy thing, but it’s not! You spend 1 day just to find the place and figure out the perfect time for coming back another day. If you don’t have a car you will have to rely on public transport (2 buses in this case) that not always comes on time. And the most important thing – as it gets darker, it’s gets colder and you can not see buttons on your camera. LOL.
Another day another photo. This time it’s Corona Heights Park. Nice view to the city. Young people chilling on the rocks and drinking beer. Photographers do their thing and some people come here to do yoga moves. Totay Blue Angels were preparing for tomorrows air show, so a lot of noise in the air.
According to wikipedia Twin Peaks two hils are second highest points (281 m) in San Francisco. American people drive there by their cars. I went on foot (check out my dirty shoes) and when I arrived there it started to rain, there was no place to hide. But, Ingeezzy is not made of sugar, so I was stubbornly waiting for rain to stop so I can make a picture!
I took my Canon 550d with 50mm lens for a walk in Castro.
