Gorgeous Weekend

What an absolutely gorgeous weekend we just had here in the San Diego County. It was definitely a weekend to be outdoors as the temperatures were in the mid-80’s with no clouds in the sky.

On Saturday, I was torn between watching the AVP up in Riverside, CA or going back to the Wild Animal Park in Escondido. Ultimately, I chose the zoo since I didn’t want to drive an hour to Riverside plus I didn’t want too spend money on gas, parking and admission. Buying the year pass to the San Diego Zoo earlier in the year has already paid for itself since I’ve gone to the San Diego Zoo twice and now the Wild Animal Park twice also. I’ll be going back at least once in the next month and possibly a second time when my buddy and family come down to visit in the upcoming weeks.

I spent most of the day at the zoo walking around and taking pictures with my new Canon 50D. Afterwards, I decided to drive down to La Jolla to check out La Jolla Cove. As expected, the area was packed with people enjoying the great weather and the coastal scenery. I was able to get some photos of the seals and a few of the squirrels that were running around the area.

Sunday was another beautiful day weather wise. I spent most of the day at my favorite local Starbucks and just relaxed and played around with Photoshop. I was trying to teach myself how to automate some of the post processing of photos to help minimize my time spent on the computer. I think I finally made some actions that will correctly place a watermark on my photos(see below).

Anyways, its almost 3:00am and its WAY past my bedtime. I need to be up in about 3 hours so work should be interesting. I’ll probably require lots and lots of coffee.
