I have to brag…

My oldest daughter, Micah, who is seven years old just wrote her first computer program. Being a former programmer of sorts myself, I was looking for an easy way for Micah to learn about programming. My wife found a link to an educational programming application for kids designed by some genius’ at MIT.

The programming language/program is called “Scratch“. It’s really amazing how quickly kids can figure out how to write programs.

Micah sat down and I quickly gave her an idea about how the program worked. Then in about 45 minutes, she came up with this (Click on the image to load the program. Move your mouse to have the ladybug follow the cursor. Click on the red “stop sign” to stop the animation):

She did all the artwork, animation, sound (she recorded herself singing), and programming. I was amazed!

Anyway, just though I’d share…

julia + andrew

 Julia and Andrew started off with their rehearsal dinner at the Scripps Birch Aquarium. What a great setting for a party. (And no, they didn’t serve fish…)

The wedding day started with Julia getting ready at The Lodge at Torrey Pines. They got ready in the Gamble Suite, an enormous, beautiful suite at The Lodge. From there it was on to the Founder’s Chapel at USD for the ceremony and then on to the Fairbanks Ranch Country Club for the reception. The highlight of the reception was having a famous local San Diego band, Rockola! They definitely “rocked the house”.

Congratulations to Julia and Andrew!

kelley + thomas engagement

I had the pleasure of photographing kelley’s sister’s wedding last year. Now it’s Kelley’s turn in October.

I had a great time shooting Kelley and Thomas’ portraits at Windansea beach in La Jolla. We were fortunate to get another amazing San Diego sunset.
