Last Minute Trip to Cali Part 2

I had a great opportunity to shoot in a studio for the first time thanks to my friend Ed.   He held my hand as I worked with studio strobes and gave lots of great tips that I have generally forgotten.  The advice may need to be repeated a few dozen times. This experience has motivated me to set something up in my living room at home, the main problem is convincing people to come to this side of the island for photos.  Instead of going out on crazy adventures my trip was rather low key, spending a lot of time trying to meet up with my friends.  It may be considered boring to handle my time up there like I did, but I was so happy to meet up with everyone.

Last minute trip to Cali

I was given a chance to fly up to San Jose for Thanks Giving and was not able to make any posts due to a lack of a proper laptop. Now that I’m back, it’s time to catch up on everything or at least make an attempt.  I haven’t been to Cali during a winter in over 10 years and forgot how cold it can get.  Most of my time was spent eating pho, drinking boba and trying to take photos with frozen hands.  Granted the coldest it got was probably 40 degrees, Hawaii people do not do so well under these conditions.

I think this first round of posts will end up like a mini food blog.  I ate a lot of great stuff and kept going back for more.   The Vietnam Town in San Jose was down the street from where I stayed and it offered 4 different boba spots that were quality. Naturally, I’d get a drink, grab some pho then head back to another boba spot. Considering how much sugar is in these drinks, I’m lucky I didn’t come home with diabetes, everything would have been healthy’ish if I stayed away from the cheeseburgers but I got caught up in the Inn and Out goodness.

My Next Post will focus more on the things I got to join in and less about food.
