California Travel and Tourism Commission Event

The California Travel and Tourism Commission had a media event at the Beverly Wilshire in Beverly Hills yesterday. They asked us to cover the event and set up a green screen studio for some still shots. Here is Julia working hard.

They had all this wonderful looking food and desserts, lots of useful information, and we think the event went really well.

Everyone from the California Travel and Tourism Commission, as well as the Beverly Wilshire staff were very friendly, kind and professional. We'd like to thank them for a wonderful experience.

SoHo Thai Fusion Bar & Grill

Today is Eddie's birthday!! We went to SoHo Thai Fusion Bar & Grill to celebrate, and this photo above was taken with Eddie's camera phone, so you'll have to excuse the quality... These are the appetizer Angel Wings. Pretty good, we have to say. They are chicken wings with the bones removed, and stuffed with a mixture of pork and some other ingredients that I'm sure they will not share with us... It tasted a little reminiscent of Vietnamese fried egg rolls. The chicken was nice and crispy, not too over fried; the texture was great! This restaurant is fairly new, so those of you who haven't tried it yet, go check it out. Their website is

Point Vicente Lighthouse

We spent some time on Palos Verdes today, scouting for good photo locations. We ended up at the Point Vicente Lighthouse. We have been there before, but never stayed until it got pretty dark like we did today. It was the first time we saw the lighthouse actually lit up! And there was some fog (what else is new in PV?) so we had to listen to the fog horn the whole time we were there.

The last time we were there the new visitor's center was still in construction. Now it's done, but we were there too late in the day to be able to take photos and look around, so we took the photos and decided to go back some other day to be tourists. Today was strictly a "work" visit.

Evan's Artwork

These are 4 paintings that we photographed today. They were done by a very gifted local artist by the name of Even Peelle. He wanted high resolution files for possible future reproduction.
The final results - four 700Mb files!

Apparently, great artistic ability runs in Evan's family. Having a sculptor grandfather and a painter mother, art has been a part of Evan's life since he could remember.

If you are interested in any of these stunning works of art, or would like to have a portrait painted, please visit Evan's website for more information:
