Living in Orange County doesnt leave very much for the imagination as far as rare, exotic vehicles go... they seem to be just about everywhere you look and are driven by people from all walks of life. When I saw this Caterham at a recent Cars and Coffee Fundraiser, I did use my imagination as to what the driver may look like -turns out I was spot on like a cup of English tea. From the houndstooth drivers cap to the leather racing gloves, he was living the heritage of this wonderful English racing vehicle to the nines.
Last weekend, I went and checked out the OC Brew Ha Ha Craft Beer festival in Irvine. Over 60 Breweries were there, showcasing some of the best beer I've had in awhile. Including, my new local favorite, Old Orange Brew Company.
This gentleman, on the bagpipes is part of the OC Fire Authority's Pipes and Drums band. They brought the house down, playing some of my favorite traditional Irish songs, plus some new ones I'd never heard before.
This is a shot I took in our hometown of Orange. I always love sitting by the fountain. On this particular day the flag caught my eye as it was blowing in the breeze. I thought this would be a great shot to share today as it is the 10 year anniversary since the 911 tragedy in New York City. It felt patriotic and I am thankful to have a place like this to go and sit sometimes and reflect on what is important to me and inspires me.
Remembering all of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
As we approach the ten year anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in NY, I imagine we'll be seeing more displays of patriotism like this one,this weekend. Taken at Angel Stadium before the Angels and Yankees played last night, during their salute to service men and women.
Walking by these pillars that frame the entrance to Chapman University Auditorium around sunset was nice but they really grabbed my attention in the true dark of night when light dramatically from below. The whole building seemed to be 10X taller now and the lines of the pillars really dramatic.
