Springtime at Commonwealth

This week, I visited the same restaurant TWICE. Commonwealth had just added their Spring menu and it’s really wonderful. Went with Cashmere Mafia on Wednesday and went again last night with Khaled but this time I brought my camera. The food is surprisingly light. It also feels super fresh and …

Bay Area from Above

Every time I travel on a plane, I’m bummed to not have my camera with me.  I always end up missing out on the most spectacular shots.  This time around, I actually had my camera with me.  If you’ve lived in the bay area, or have visited, more often than …

Cheeky’s for Brunch

No trip is complete without a visit to a special restaurant.  This time in Palm Springs, CA, Cheeky’s was it! Brunch outside for two with misters to cool down the 92 degree weather at 8.30am.  Started out with freshly squeezed blood orange juice. YUM! I am in love with this …

The Gentle Wind Giants

I’ve been experimenting a lot with photographing water as it occurs naturally in my environment (lakes, oceans, waterfalls, etc) and more recently as its movement is more simulated. This weekend, I spent a ton of time simulating and photographing …

A Tuna Dinner

Been on a healthy kick the last few weeks so I replaced the red meat with a different kind of red meat, Ahi Tuna.  I’ve seared the tuna so that it’s raw in the middle.  I served it with an avocado, cucumber and arugula salad.  I really liked it! Here’s …

Vegetable Lentil Soup

The other night, a few days after I got off my juice cleanse, I decided to make a hearty lentil soup full of veggies.  That would give me all the protein I’ve been short on the last week but also get to stock up on vegetables.  This is definitely a …
