Why a Mac?

It appears that I have amassed a number of awesome Apple stuff lately - Macbook Air, iPad 2, Imac 27, and soon - the much rumored iPhone 5 that will be introduced in October (to replace my "old" iPhone 3GS). A friend of mine asked me, why a Mac, not a PC? Well, sorry, the picture below shows why. Hannah mo betah than Chai, her dog-brother hahaha!

Having said that, I'm also using this post to launch my new Photo Website. edgarces.smugmug.com Click here

Photoshoot At Kanaha Beach

Very brief photoshoot of windsurfers at Kanaha beach today to test my new 2X Teleconverter before patches of dark clouds with occasional showers threatened my camera gears. Not taking chances at all. I will try again tomorrow.

D300S and Nikon 70-200mm f2.8 with TC2-III at 400mm F8. (100% crop except for Outrigger image)

My New Laptop: Macbook Air by Apple

I replaced my 5 year old Macbook with this stunning and latest 13" Macbook Air. Better yet it didn't cost me much as I sold my old  Macbook at a good price, sold a Nikon lens I haven't used for a year, and a hefty 20% discount from Amazon.com! In my books, that's a freebie!!!

Well, it's time to get serious. Here's my running program for the December 11 Honolulu Marathon. It will be my fourth and then I'll do my last one when I turn 70 three years from now. Maybe......

Anniversary No. 43!

To have and to hold, for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, yada, yada, yada, to love and to cherish till death do us part. Thank you Lord! It's all for your glory as you intended a sacrament of marriage to be.

Aloha Mele (1999-2011)

Mele's gone home too. Our hearts are broken. Her Vet advised that her stomach lining has cancer cells and has early onset of renal failure as well.

August!

Another swift month and my attitude is reflected in Hannah's look. But of course July was made very special with Hannah's 10 day vacation in Maui.

Looking forward to a huge family and hometown (Tayug) reunion in San Diego this month
