Whale watching @ Monterey Bay

Went whale watching at Monterey bay and never expected to see such an grandiloquent show of such mighty humongous creatures - pectoral fin slaps, fluking, breaching and blowing.  It was every-penny-worth show that these mammals of the Pacific ocean put up for us, the curious homo-sapiens watching from the boat.  It was an hour long cold and bumpy ride on Pacific, from Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey to somewhere off-coast Watsonville, that we had to take to watch these whales and dolphins perform for us.  Below are the pictures that I shot with 70-200 mounted on a 6D and cropped to a great extent, for 200mm was a bit too short for such photography.

San Francisco Carnaval 2014

Since there were no other big plans for the Memorial Day weekend, we decided to wake up early on Sunday morning and head to San Francisco Carnaval 2014 in the Mission District.  It was an amazing event on a sunny Sunday morning, treat for both eyes and lens.  I haven't been to Brazil to compare it to Brazilian carnival, but this wasn't disappointing.  The parade consisted of various Latin American cultures - Brazilian Samba, Cuban Salsa, Peruvian folklore, Colombian and Caribbean dance groups et. al.  Below are the pictures, I'm sure this won't be as boring as the landscapes and street photographs that I usually post.
