Life West Wave Photos 2011

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I ran around all day with my camera (and had fun doing it) taking photos at the 2011 Life West Wave event which was held at the Oakland Marriott hotel in historic downtown Oakland (love the local architecture). Here’s a quick set of photos from yesterday, plenty more to come. Life Wave West Science Track The day began with continuing education from Chiropractic Science Master Dr. Dan Murphy. The room was packed. Dr. Murphy speaks across the globe on the science of chiropractic and he is a presenter not to be missed. Always loaded with energy […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Did you know that photographs placed in classified advertising posts results in far greater views of those posts? Imagine shopping for a preowned car on a classified ad site, and not getting to see any photos, those advertisements don’t get much action. The same goes for major auction sites. I can’t even recall the last time I visited an auction site that didn’t include at least one photograph related to the item being sold. The same rule applies for chiropractic classified ads, if you include photographs, you’re going to increase significantly the amount of viewers looking […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Planet Chiropractic News today had an article about Parker College of Chiropractic president Fabrizio Mancini and a university library in Mexico opening and being dedicated in his honor. I was sent 3 photos related to the news but only included one in the article so I wanted to share all 3 here. Photo 1: Biblioteca Dr. Fabrizio Mancini. The outside of the building looks great, very cool to see Dr. Fabrizio Mancini on the outside wall in large golden lettering. Photo 2: Dr. Fabrizio Mancini unveils UNEVE’s new library plaque as UNEVE’s rector, Jose Angel Fernandez […]

A 2.9 km (1.8 miles) trail length with a 933 m (2800 feet) vertical rise makes Grouse Grind in Vancouver BC a perfect one hour (ish) cardio workout. When mentioning to a client, that I was traveling to Vancouver for Canada Day and some hiking, he said “you’ve gotta do the Grouse Grind hike at Grouse Mountain.” I’m glad I listened to him as it was the perfect start to my Vancouver hiking weekend. Hop on bus 236 to Grouse Mountain and join me… 236 Grouse Mountain Bus to Grouse Grind from downtown Vancouver was a good choice. I opted […]

Vancouver Canada Travels

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Back in July of last year, I was in Vancouver for Canada Day, along with a few days of hiking and visiting chiropractors. One of the photos from the trip appeared in my 2010 iPhone review photos and a few appeared on my Michael Dorausch blog related to beer drinking (some great microbreweries in Vancouver). I found a bunch recently still on my phone. 4WD Mitsubishi Delica I’m posting this photo of a Mitsubishi Delica four-wheel drive vehicle since I think they’re really cool. I saw a few in the Vancouver area and I only recall […]

LA Marathon Photos 2011

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Everybody loves a marathon (except maybe preachers and priests because people can’t get to Sunday church service) and the city of Los Angeles is a perfect place to run one. Road Closed LA Marathon The LA Marathon (as well as other city marathons) often results in massive road closures. It takes huge effort and coordination to organize an event like this. Congratulations to Marathon organizers and volunteers for their dedication to putting on this annual event. Honda LA Marathon 2011 Finish Line It was a huddled mass of medics, TV crews, media personnel, and marathon volunteers […]

9 Tattoo Designs on Women

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Tattoo designs for women? What? On this blog? Hold on a minute, yes, and let me explain why. I was looking through some searches the other day and noticed lots of visitors were looking at the sacral spine tattoo in this post. Apparently, there’s quite an interest and I was kinda surprised I hadn’t posted more tattoo related photos, but guess I never got around to it. I had some time over the weekend, so I gathered up a selection. If tattoos on women turn you off, you way want to not bother scrolling down. For […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. It’s been raining in Los Angeles, which has kept me indoors, so I’ve been reviewing photos taken throughout 2010. I have three different cameras I typically travel with, and after looking at photographs in December, I discovered I shot around 2000 images with my iPhone alone. I guess it’s true, chiropractors love their iPhones. Most photographs taken with a mobile device like an iPhone include location data when the image is saved as a JPEG file. I’ve talked about this quite a bit at chiropractic conferences, Internet conferences, and search engine optimization conferences. More so in […]

What a great way to make use of your plastic spine models that you likely have in your chiropractic office. This image of a human occipital bone, first cervical vertebrae, and second cervical vertebrae, was made by placing a plastic spine model on a solid color surface (blue or green works well) and converting the surrounding colors to black to produce the image shown here. From top to bottom (viewing from the posterior) is the occipital bone, atlas vertebra (commonly referred to as C1), and the axis (commonly referred to as C2). Three sets of nerves exiting between the bones […]

Pro Photographers in Your Office

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I emptied an online folder today that I was canceling a yearly subscription on. I found some photographs in there that I had not seen since they were uploaded back in 2006, which motivated me to create this post (can’t just let photos sit on the hard drive). I use chiropractic photos regularly for marketing, postcards, news articles, etc. I’ve had photos that I’ve taken appear in magazines, newspapers, numerous websites, and even CNN. While I consider myself a hobbyist and amateur, I know the importance of having good quality photographs available for others to use. […]
