I took a little walk and thought that I’d share the Pacific Design Center exterior with you. Enjoy the campus of modern buildings and fountain in a garden style setting. Obviously, I used the Nokia Lumia 1020 to capture it all. It’s all handheld and I wasn’t being particularly careful so the Optical Image Stabilizer was working hard. Also, you can see that the microphone works really well…almost too well for standard host-style speaking, because it picks up everything.

Having an amazing camera in your phone, like I do with my Nokia Lumia 920, there are days when I take pictures of things without even thinking about why. Our devices are so convenient and I constantly use mine to discover and create shareable content, while also forcing myself to view, examine and appreciate my surroundings.
Today was one of those days that I took some pictures and had no idea why or what I would do with them. When I looked at them later, I made two collages. (FYI – I use two collage apps: PhotoGrid and Phototastic)
Today’s Cali-strated theme is “Pretty on the outside – Weird on the inside”
Today I posted on my Facebook status that “Today is Friday! Do something amazing and earn the weekend!” My friend Steffanie turned it around and asked me what I was going to do. Hmmm…people don’t usually turn my orders around on me.
I had to do the building paperwork this morning, so the amazing had to wait for the afternoon. Of course, as the day goes on more and more things get in the way, but I will not let that get in my way. This is 2013, which I’ve declared the Year Of The Hash Tag. That means it’s a paradigmatic shift in my existence to a #NoExcuses, #NoRegrets life. Amazing HAD to happen!
A clear bonus of living in Southern California is simply January. It so happens that a week long forecast of rain is upon us, but the first half of January was lovely. Here are some pictures from two events that took place this month. One was a hike in Solstice Canyon with my friend Diane and the other was a few days spent on The Strand in Manhattan Beach with my friend Lindsay.
