This week I had a brief escape to Big Bear California with one of my best friends. It was a fantastic time and it was really gorgeous. I needed the break I had one morning to take photographs on Thursday. I thought the light was questionable for landscape work but I went for some atypical photographs and thought in Black & White as well as color. So I guess I came up with a quick plan and it worked out really well! It was quick trip for photographs, fishing, food and fun at Big Bear. If you get the chance try Murray's Pub. They had great corned beef cabbage on St. Patrick's Day, a great staff and lots of warm locals to talk it up. Please enjoy the photos!
