This past Friday night, Elizabeth, Conny (Imogen) and I went to to hear my Brother in Law (David Castillo) play with Superstitious Minds at Main Street Bar. I took my Sony A6500 and took some photos. We had such a great time. I’ve posted some photos below – click on each on to view a larger version. 

Thanks for letting me share.

She is my Wonder Woman

by on Sep.22, 2017, under Family

G-W_Teeth

Today was a tough day. My 17yr old daughter had her 4 wisdom teeth extracted today. She was a trooper. 

Of all the strongest woman I know, she ranks up there in the top 4. Elizabeth being #1. 

I worked from home today so I could help with my little girl’s extraction process. She’s already gone through braces and now had to have 4 wisdom teeth extracted. Her procedure was at 8am and as I mentioned, I was thankful I’m able to work from home to help my wife get her home. 

We thought it was going to take about 2 hours but we were surprised when they called us after an hour. She was ready to go home. She was a bit groggy and you had to ask…

Will this be an opportunity to film her in a goofy moment you see online of parent’s posting their children’s reaction to the procedure. 

She surprised me. 

She was a bit emotional but got to the car and in the house ok. Three hours later, she was sitting on the sofa with Momma bear at her side. A couple of times she used the “bell app” on her phone to get our attention when she went back to her room to sleep but let me tell you – she’s been awesome. She’s a tough girl…just like her Mom. She was already posting pics of herself to her friends on Snapchat and other media to show her friends (and GodMom) that she was doing well. Even during the ABC Nightly News she was so lively commenting on current events. 

Being a film maker, I wondered if I would have used this opportunity to film her in her most vulnerable state, blabbing like an idiot, 

But of course, she continued to surprise me with her strength and resilience. Just like her Mom. 

I’ve posted some pictures below to share how proud I am of this strong, young woman. I’m sure she did better than I did – yes those are my two wisdom teeth pulled as my header image…oh so long ago (25yrs?). 

We will be watching Wonder Woman tonight – to remind me that I am lucky to have these two women in my life. Both are WW to me.

Saldivar South Padre Vacation 2017

by on Jun.18, 2017, under Family, Film making, Photography, Sony A6000

Been one week since we’ve been back from our annual Saldivar Vacation. This year (2017) we decided to go back to South Padre Island and “complete” the vacation. See 8 years ago we went but Joaquin got really sick and we basically drove back. This trip felt like we closed the loop. 

Read about that here – Joaquin got sick

The video above is from Day 1 and I didn’t bust out my cameras the rest of the trip. Elizabeth told me not to make it “work.” So I didn’t. I did add a gallery below so if you click on images for a larger view. I did create some time lapses using my Sony A6500 and I’ll add those later.

DIY GoPro Battery Powered Tripod April 2017

Just a quick post to show the “rig” I put together for my daughter that wanted to use my GoPro for some Selfie stuff and time-lapse. She needed to be able to see herself using her iPhone and the GoPro app plus some extra juice to power the GoPro past 2 hours.

So using existing GoPro gear I had PLUS a small power bank, I created something in about 30mins – see below. Should be easy for her to place on any table and just run it.
