Why do I think this is the best engagement shoot ever? Go to Amanda Rynda Photography and see for yourself. I need to do more shoots like this.
A day on vacation with the Pinkowskis. If you know the Pinkowskis, you’ll understand.
Thank you for changing my life.
Earlier this year we witnessed one of the worst natural disasters in the past few years. A magnitude-9 earthquake off the coast of Japan caused one of the worst tsunamis in recent years. Toya Chiba, a reporter with Iwate Tokai Shimbun, went to cover the story firsthand. Here are some photos of Chiba taken from a nearby rooftop by local government employee Shoichi Sasaki.
Talk about getting the shot. Chiba still tried to get a photo, which could easily have been his last if not for his quick reflexes and and a dangling rope that saved him. “It was a complete error in judgment.” he was later quoted as saying “I didn’t believe a tsunami of that scale would come.”
This series of photos raises the question though. When is getting the shot more important than life itself?

For the past few days now, bugs and beetles having been coming to our doorstep to die. And they’re huge! What kind of beetle is this? Oh yeah, handheld macro photography isn’t easy…
Maybe he just wanted a quick portrait session. Clients are dying to come see me, hehehe. Oh wow, that was bad…
The moon a couple of days after the actual full moon. I can’t tell the difference…
Here’s a little somethin’ from back home. Fred G. Redmon Memorial Bridge in Selah, WA. I’ve crossed this bridge hundreds of times but never really noticed how big of a structure it is. I never knew so much about this bridge until I took this photo and it was in my backyard for 25 years.

Photography has really made me stop, think, and appreciate the things around me in ways I never expected.
Tonight, after a couple of margaritas, the responsible adults started playing with my sister-in-law’s iPad. I can’t believe how much fun you can have with such a simple app like Photo Booth. We were cracking up. This all started after we had heard that my niece had used her iPad and taken 100s of photos of herself while her mom slept. Here are just a few from tonight…
This is my favorite though. A simple filter and a shot of her peeking into the frame.
This just goes to show that “The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You” – Chase Jarvis.
The other day Kathryn and I were driving around Bellevue trying to find good deal on tile. Yep, I just said that. I spotted it about a block away just by the tail lights. Ok maybe the bright green candy paint had a little to do with it as well. It was this 1964 Chevrolet Impala. I wanted one when I was young and into the whole lowrider craze. This Impala is owned by the guys at Bel-Red Auto Rebuild. They did a beautiful job restoring this classic. Thanks for letting me stop by and take a few shots Dominick!
