About Me

My photo
Long Beach, California, United States
Welcome to my blog. Looking through my posts you will find that I love and have a passion for photography and although my expertise so to speak is in Sports Action, I have been getting into wildlife and senior portraits. No matter what I'm shooting I want to bring my client the best possible shot I can and give them / you a photograph that you will cherish for a lifetime. If your looking for someone to capture your child in action, to show the intensity and emotion in which your child plays, look no further. Just drop me a line (e-mail) at homerkenpo@aol.com. I cover most areas in Southern Califoria.

Bolsa Chica Wetlands

Got up at oh-dark thirty and headed out to the Bolsa Chica Wetlands. I was hoping to get some shots of the black skimmers, but unfortunately it was very overcast and there just wasn't any activity from them this morning.

I started the morning along the east entrance to the wetlands along a footbridge and while I waited and watched I noticed a lot of terns flying past me with fish in their beaks. They were all coming from west of me, so I decided to head over there to see the activity. During this I met a very nice gentlemen who was out doing the same thing I was, enjoying the morning and photographing the wildlife. We talked as we walked and I found out he used to have a photography studio, which focused on weddings. Our conversation really made the morning very pleasant.

Once we got to our destination, we shot and continued to talk. Had a great time shooting the terns.

For my first shot I have the Brown Pelican.

This is followed by the Black-necked Stilt

And then Caspian Terns, many Caspian Terns.
