It's been so nice to explore up and down the coast this year. Even if it's a quick drive to the Marin Headlands to see Point Bonita Lighthouse or another hike into Mt. Davidson or even a drive up to Mendocino, I love experiencing the coast. I've been making a point to carry my film camera more often and find it to be a lot of fun. Here's a few images from recent excursions.
As it's nearing the end of this year, I wanted to look back remember some of the cool travels I've had the privilege of taking through 2014. These travels primarily revolve around outdoor activities like rock climbing, camping, and just plain exploring. Fun fact: I think I actually broke a personal camping record with almost 10 different camping trips this year! Not only that but I finally got to go backpacking in the Ansel Adams Wilderness, a destination that I've been dreaming about for a couple years now.
Other locations include Pinnacles National Park, Carson Iceberg Wilderness, and Big Basin Redwoods State Park. You'll also see a few extra photos from day trips around San Francisco.
Hope you all had a fun and adventurous year as well!
Hey there! Just wanted to give you a quick heads up that I've been out of town a bunch lately... but don't worry; I've been shooting like crazy. I'm really excited about the types of images I'm getting. Here's a taste of what's to come. Think multiple backpacking trips, film, and a few weddings, too!
You may already know that I love Mt Davidson, since I've posted about it before. Something about the park never gets old and it's so refreshing to hike through a heavily forest area, without leaving San Francisco. Come check it out!
I recently got back from a trip to Pinnacles National Park. It was soooo cool. This park has some of the best views I've seen in long time. Guess what! They have caves to explore. That's right we got to explore caves! There is something rather exciting about walking, or climbing actually, through a cave. Perhaps it's the sense of unknown or the simple fact that it's dark and foreign. Either way, it was a blast.
We even got to do some top rope climbing. Somehow rock climbing is both terrifying and fun at the same time. It's a crazy sense of accomplishment to finish a climb. Can't wait to go again.
Besides, exploring caves and rock climbing, it was great to get away and spend time outdoors with close friends. There's something special about hanging out around a campfire, simply relaxing. Plus, who doesn't love making s'mores? I think that I enjoy making s'mores more than I enjoy actually eating them.
Enjoy the photos, and go plan a trip to Pinnacles already!
Got some super grainy 35mm images for you today. I took these last year on a ski trip with my dad in Lake Tahoe. The views here are on the Nevada side of the mountain and are overlooking Carson City. In my opinion, these are some of the best scenes on the West Coast.
These images were shot on black and white film (not sure if it was Tmax or an off brand). Anyway, don't you just love that grain?!
