America’s Cup 2013 – Incredible!!!!

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

It has to be one of the coolest events I was able to attend and photograph last year, the 34th America’s Cup held in San Francisco Bay, California. Starting in 1851 and held only once every 4 years, this event brings together the best sailors and the fastest sailboats on earth. The majestic AC 72 catamarans lift out of the water and ride on a small dagger board and narrow rudder foils, add to that a 13 story wing sail and the boats take off to hit speeds up to and over 50 miles per hour! It looked like some of the power boats in the event were having hard time keeping up once the boats turned the buoy marker and headed down wind.

As if all that were not enough, these boats are a new generation of sailboats with both teams needing a steep learning curve just to control these monsters. It was obvious that team New Zealand had learned how to run their AC 72 first as they jumped out to a 8-1 lead against Team Oracle. Then the story no one would have bet on or predicted happened! The Oracle sailing crew worked late every night with engineers and designers to somehow find a new high gear when racing. Race by race they came back showing a control over their new found speed that team New Zealand just could not respond to. In the end, Team Oracle won 8 straight races to beat New Zealand 9-8. Get ready for America’s Cup 35 in 2017, it is going to be big!

Malibu Contemporary Architecture

Monday, August 6th, 2012

You would most likely not notice this home driving down beautiful Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu as this property is very private and faces the ocean. The photos here give you a bit of a preview to a super cool piece of contemporary architecture that you could enjoy for around a 7 million dollar price tag.

The water comes right up to the property line daily and pounds the seawall that keeps it dry. As I was photographing this home the tide was coming in with a bit of a swell creating a very dramatic environment as the sun went down. Every room has great ocean views and the sound of crashing surf. This is a very cool piece of contemporary architecture fit on a small lot between the ocean and the highway.

I used my style of night time architectural photography to show off the cool features of this home that are the reason people want to live on this pricy part of the coast known as Malibu!

The Modern Paintings of William Laga currently adorn the walls and add to the Museum like quality and feel of the home. Large sliding doors open to a stylish private lap pool and spa.
