All good things are wild and free

All good things are wild and free. from Mike Ku on Vimeo.

Two different trips to the eastern Sierras. Places include Lee Vining Campground off hwy 120, Little Virginia Lake, Saddlebag Lake, Lee Vining River, Ansel Adams Wilderness, Thousand Island Lake, and more that I’m sure I forgot.

The eastern Sierras has a wild and ruggedness that is well worth the 5 hour drive from the Bay Area. Fly fishing, camping, hiking and backpacking in this area is a holy experience to me. The wilderness is my church.

Thanks to my brother in law Marc for going with me.

To the brotherhood…

51 Life Teaser from Mike Ku on Vimeo.

I love my job. It’s one of the most rewarding jobs ever. I dedicate this project to my friends, co-workers, brothers and sisters.

This is a teaser for a bigger project I hope to finish by the end of the year.  This last year has been tough and you all have provided me with more support than you know.  This is to say thanks.

Reality Lapse 2.0

Another version of Reality Lapse with some more footage.

A collection of time-lapse footage I’ve shot in the past month.

The places include:
Fremont Older Open Space Preserve Cupertino, CA
Crystal Springs Reservoir CA
Skyline above San Bruno, CA
Aquatic Park, San Francisco, CA
Ghirardelli Square, San Francisco, CA

The footage with boats and Ghirardelli in the background was the first time I used the Dynamic Perceptions Stage Zero Dolly. Worked Great.

Timelapse in San Francisco

IMG_4608, a photo by lost_by_bike on Flickr.

I had a nice block of time today by myself, so I decided to go to SF and shoot some timelapse photos.

This photo was of a couple sailboats with Ghirardelli in the background.

I was right at the edge of the fog so the light was pretty cool. Changing but cool.

Originally I wanted to shoot the Golden Gate with the fog but it turned out to be pretty socked in. I did manage to shoot some photos of the bridge with the fog but the focus was more on the fog moving and less on the bridge.
