San Diego Spyder Rentals doesn't just provide fun modes of transportation, it gives its customers the freedom to explore the highways, byways, and coastal waterways of Southern California. Explorers traverse the mountain roads and urban thoroughfares around San Diego on the back of a Can-Am Spyder, a three-wheeled motorcycle hybrid that requires no motorcycle license or tattoos of the names of past mechanics. For aquatic adventures, the outfit's rental watercraft range from standup paddleboards to a Meridian 46-foot yacht. Once they've selected their vehicles, customers can choose from self-directed jaunts and guided group tours of the nearby waters.
Carmen Ridenoure's family wasn't surprised when she decided to make photography her career?she'd been staging photo shoots since age 9, with the help of old wedding gowns, disposable cameras, and her sister.

In all her work, she says on her website, her goal has remained the same: "to look at ordinary moments and capture them in an extraordinary way." Her portfolio overflows with intimate candid and playfully posed portraits of young couples and newlyweds as well as children, family, and pets. She often shoots on location, framing her subjects in the surrounding woodlands or even gritty industrial settings.
