I ventured to Ocean Beach to capture moments during the sunset when I spotted the lone surfboard on the shore.

The Dr. Seuss Tree Photo By Denise Vasquez

When I heard the Dr. Seuss Lorax Tree was in the Ellen Browning Scripps Park, I had to capture some photos of it while venturing around La Jolla, CA! Fun going back to my childhood & seeing where one of my favorite storybook inspirations came from!

Time To Draw The Fishing Line Photo By Denise Vasquez

Photo by Denise Vasquez ©2017

I was going through photos I captured while visiting La Jolla, CA when I noticed this seal that seemed to be in pain. It appears to have a fishing line around it's neck. This hurts my heart to see & learn that a  major cause of wildlife entanglement is people improperly disposing their fishing lines along the beaches. Dear future generations, please be aware of your actions!

Hold Onto The Light Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo by Denise Vasquez ©2017

On Tuesday August 28th, 2017 after venturing around La Jolla with my camera in hand, artist Randy Martinez & I decided to head to Ocean Beach. We went for a romantic walk along the shore as the sun began to set. Randy reached up to the sun as if holding the light in his hand. The beautiful colors were reflecting off the water as I guided him exactly where to position his hand. The colors changed so rapidly, I was so happy I managed to capture this moment with my camera!

It's taken me a lifetime to get my dream job, but I am here & would like to share that's it's never to late to live your dreams! 

You have to believe to achieve! 

I've jumped off many cliffs in my lifetime, literally & symbolically & it was so much fun taking photographs while watching the brave gliders at Torrey Pines Gliderport taking a leap of faith!

When people ask me what keeps me so happy, I always encourage them to do what they love & follow their passions! Photography has always been my passion & I shoot every chance I get, whether it's at work (I'm blessed to have a job where I get paid to take photos) or on my days off! On my days off from work, I try to go exploring while discovering new places with my EOS Canon 80 D Camera in hand! 

On Tuesday August 28th, 2017 I decided to venture to La Jolla, California with my boyfriend artist Randy Martinez. He loves exploring with me & while he's driving, I hold my Canon in hand, taking in my surroundings & ready to capture moments with my camera. The first stop on my list was Salk Institute. It was a bit overcast which lended to the mood of the environment. The architecture looked something straight out of an apocalyptic movie. I shot from various angles & used a couple of different lenses. For this particular shot, I used my Canon 18-55 mm macro 0.25 m/0.8ft lens to capture this moment as the clouds rolled in.

Cultivating The Earth Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

While exploring San Diego, I went down to the border & passed some farms along the way. I thought about how farming is such an vital part of our daily lives & how much we need each other to cultivate the earth. Without food and water, there is no life!

Riding Through Time Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

I ventured to the San Diego Mexico Border and decided to take photos on the beach. I saw a few people riding horses towards me & behind them in the distance I saw a couple riding their bikes. I began thinking how transportation has evolved over the years & how we've progressed in some ways & how we still do things from the past. I shot many photos until I captured this moment where the past & the present came together & passed each other in opposite directions.

View From The Border Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

Yesterday I ventured around San Diego with my camera in hand & with my man Randy Martinez. One of our stops was at Border Field State Park located at the US/Mexico Border. There was a big fiesta going on, and the sound of wonderful live music & laughter filled the air! Unfortunately we couldn't be a part of it because there was a big wall in our way, border patrols everywhere & it was on the other side. As I stood there taking photos, I thought what the world would be like if our governments worked to bring people together rather than separating us by labels, numbers, dollars & walls! We are an experiment can we live together grow together as one race the human race!

The Owl & The Lesson Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

One of my favorite photographs I've captured to date features the symbol of wisdom, the owl. When I first spotted the owl, the scene reminded me of something I would see in a fantasy film. The owl's  head was turned away from me, so I sat for a while quietly waiting until I captured this beautiful moment. Thanks to the owl I learned a valuable lesson in this moment; Sometimes in life it pays to be still, quiet & patient!

Pelicans Reflection Photo by Denise Vasquez

Photo: Denise Vasquez ©2017

I saw this beautiful white pelican swimming with it's reflection on the dark water. The pelican floated around the water kicking from time to time. I stood very still so I wouldn't startle it & waited for the moment where the water was calm & clear so I could capture this moment. Find your path & enjoy your journey!
