If everything went smoothly, you probably didn’t notice that we changed our domain name. Yep, we are now Hossedia.com (HOSS-E-dia)! If you are wondering why, let me explain. Back around the early 2000s, I was bike racing a lot. At that point I had been racing for about 15 years. Anyway, I hurt myself and had to give up the bike for a while. Needless to say I was pretty bummed out. To get myself out of the funk I was in, I decided I would take my love of photography to the bike races and photograph my buddies. Not only did it keep me involved, it opened up a whole new world to me. I began photographing bike races around the country, and getting to do some pretty cool stuff. It was at that time that I founded Hossedia.com. It was a fun website, much like today’s, where I told stories and shared photos. All of it was positive and really helped me get through a tough time. Long story short, in 2004 my car was broke (broken?) into and my credit cards were stolen. I had to cancel them and subsequently lost my site because my domain host couldn’t renew my account. Bummer….all of Hossedia.com was lost. I started LightAsMagic.com about 4 years ago. At the time it was focused on sharing a bit of my photography. As you know, over the last 4 years a lot has happened. This site has become much bigger than photos. It is about photography, good news, adventure, and the untold stories of the world. Basically, everything Hossedia.com was back in 2000. So here we are, right back where I started 10 years ago, Hossedia.com. It feels good, it’s like an old friend has returned. I plan on staying here for a long time. I will also be announcing a few cool things that I have been working on which are part of the larger Hossedia umbrella. Plus, how many times in your life do you get to make up a word, and bring it to the attention of the mainstream? Feel free to start calling yourself a Hossedian…or go out this week and get your Hossedia on….or if you see something awesome…just say that it is Hossedia.
Anyway, I hope everything went smoothly for you and you didn’t encounter any disruptions in your service. I apologize to all our RSS subscribers for the mass reader updates. Actually, after reading this story, my real hope is that you can embrace my old friend Hossedia like I have. If you have any links or bookmarks pointed here, can you please update them to Hosseida.com. Thanks much!

Hermosa Beach Photo Walk
I will have more details tomorrow, but if you want to get a jump on it check out the event we have planned for Dec 17th at the Hermosa Beach Pier. RSVP Here.
Here we are looking west from the Toroweap overlook on the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The photographer in the foreground is Jason. He was a very nice guy from LA and I didn’t have the heart to ask him to move. Actually, I kind of like the photo with him in it.
