First photos from our USA vacation – Hoover Dam and Grand Canyon

After arriving in Las Vegas at night we drove directly to Boulder City to get some rest. Our first morning was beautiful….we had a great American style breakfast and drove afterwards to Hoover Dam (sorry guys, no Transformers there 🙂 ).

 

Next day was Grand Canyon day. I was very excited….not only because of the Grand Canyon, but also because I met my good friend Bryan Mordt there.
I was at the Hoover Dam before, but I have never been at the Grand Canyon. You dont see anything about this big hole until you arrive there.
So we were driving on this road to the Grand Canyon and from one moment to the next one it was on the left side of the road. I was paralyzed when I first saw it….But let the photos speak…

 

Bryan brought his friend Tami with him. A passion photographer like we are.
We had such a great time with you guys there and hopefully we see you again soon.

Hard Times Bellflower 9 and 10Ball Tournament

It all started with an coincidence. We went to US for vacation and my last stop was California. Visiting some friends overthere, I figured out that there are tournaments in Hard Times. My gear was with me, so I had to shoot some photos there.

 

The main event (The Hard Times Ten Ball Open) was a big Event with a lot of big names (Dennis Orcullo, Shane VanBoening, Francisco Bustamante, Max Eberle, Rodney Morris, Raj Hundal, Scott Frost, John Morra, Ernesto and Oscar Dominguez, Brandon Shuff and Jose Parica to name just a few). Jay Helfert was commentating with Barbara Lee and Daniel Bush did the streamin (check out www.povpool.com for streams) Organizer was Marielle Lim. All this people and many more were responsible for that great pool event. Thanks to everybody for that!!

 

Congrats to Dennis Orcollo for winning this Tournament. (Shane finished second and Max third)

 

It was my first tournament after a longer break, so you can imagine how I enjoyed to visit old friends and watch high level pool again.
I was in Hard Times some days before and shot also a 9 Ball Tournament (Pics at the end of the gallery)
