It's Time-lapse season again!

It's Time-lapse season again!

It's that time year where the clouds start to fill our skies and when the sunsets get closer to the early afternoon.  I love the fall and it's been a long wait for this one.  

Some afternoons it's so hard to be inside working when you know such beautiful skies are above.  For all of you who are inside and on the Internet right now reading this, I wanted to share some of my time lapse videos from the last year.

River Bend Bike Park in Lompoc, CA... It will better your life....Part 1

Being a Buellton resident, I kept hearing that Lompoc ( a really cool town nearby ) was opening a bike park with tons of tracks, jumps, and fun.  About a month ago, I asked my girlfriend to cruise to Lompoc with me to find this mythical place.  We could have searched the internet, yet a drive with some detective work seemed more fun!

For Community, By Community...

This last month has been a reflective time for me.  Getting out on my bike or going for a walk with a friend, has been great with these long summer evenings.  One of the best places to walk and collect your thoughts (or let them go) is the local Botanic Garden.  Lucky for me, my mother envisioned, designed and built the Santa Ynez Valley Botanic Garden in the town I live...Buellton.  With Mother's Day in the month of May, I wanted to make my Mom a very special video of the garden she has been working hard on for the last seven years.   I wanted to show not only the beauty of the garden, but also showcase the amazing projects the various groups in the community have built and installed.  So many hands have made our garden what it is today, so thanks to everyone involved!  Nothing says community like a public garden.  If you want to see the meditative video now just scroll on down,  for more on the making and process....read on.

Into the river...

In between all the music, I've been searching for balance and a way to stay connected to nature and the "real" world around me.  Activities such as: photography, biking, ceramics, hiking, motorcycle adventure touring and building things often call for me between the songs.  Music is SUCH a deep well, you can fall in for years, (or a lifetime) without return.  Full time music isn't a bad thing, I just personally can't ignore all the other fantastic ways I see people spending their time on this planet...
