This morning I had the privilege of attending the 27th Annual YMCA of San Diego County Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Human Dignity Award Breakfast. It was a terrific event that was well-organized and very well-attended with over 1,000 participants. The program honored both Dr. King's legacy and this year's award recipient Ambrose Brodus Jr.
The keynote address, delivered by Rev. Dr. Arthur Cribbs, Jr., was very moving and covered a range of issues from civil and immigrant rights to marriage equality, the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the divisive factions forming due to diverse beliefs. The next time Dr. Cribbs speaks in San Diego, I will definitely try to make it.
Casper waits patiently by our table at a sidewalk cafe near Balboa Park. The air was a bit chilly (for San Diego) that morning. He either is awaiting his portion of breakfast or thinking "Hurry up! I want to head back to the park".

Casper. Happy. In Balboa Park. Posing for my iPhone. Ready to pounce on some squirrels.
I'm looking forward to a fantastic 2012.
I've decided I really need to start updating the photoblog with a bit more frequency. I've been so focused on client projects recently that the blog has fallen to the back burner. I had also thought of writing more articles on web video marketing but have since decided those would be best saved for well-designed PDFs to share with my clients.
A couple months back we had the chance to get out of San Diego for a week in Maui. This image was taken when we visited Haleakala National Park. Volcanic activity formed most of the terrain and the views from the summit are spectacular. The prickly plants in this image are the Haleakala silversword which can only be found in this park.
What a great surprise!
At last Thursday's mixer for the San Diego County Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (SDCHCC) fellow creative Alicia Santistevan and I were recognized for our contributions. I had recently completed a couple of videos for the Chamber to help promote its mission and Alicia has been offering support as a pro photographer (be sure to visit her site).
It was an honor to be recognized by such a fine organization, and I look forward to continuing to support its development and the business community it serves. Thank you!
