Here are some of my highlights of the awesome 2014 Dragon*con parade in Downtown Atlanta. Great costumes, kudos to the cosplayers!
I did some minor post processing on Picasa for these pictures, still getting used to my Canon 70D under full sunlight conditions. If you are interested in getting full res pics, I have all the raw files as well, just shoot me a message… Enjoy! Read the rest of this entry »
Ever since I started skating, when I was an adolescent, I always had this dream that I could make the craziest tricks when I would jump using my skates. It felt as if my jumps lasted so long that I would gain consciousness of those instants and would allow me enough freedom to move as I pleased.

So back in the day when we did not have the Little Pentagon (the new US American embassy in Panama) lying in our backyard, there was a spot were kids mainly from the former Canal Zone (Zonians) would have lots of fun parties. The following is the third out of four videos that documented our adventures. This one is on our way back, enjoy!
