Short but sweet visit back to the PNW.
On New Years Eve, I traveled out to Dove Springs with some amazing women I have the pleasure of working with every day. It was my first time in the Mojave Desert and one of the best times of my life. Here are a few images from the Yashica 35 GS.
Near/around Downtown Los Angeles
It's so peaceful down there.
Two of my dear friends, Jud and Elizabeth, had their wedding a couple of weekends ago. It was truly beautiful to watch two people so much in love be married. And under the magnificent backdrop that is Palm Springs, it couldn't have been a more perfect scenario. Congrats, Judd and Liz!
This past Sunday, I went to explore the arts district in Downtown Los Angeles that I had been anticipating visiting. From what I'd seen and heard, it was amazing and when I went, I was amazed. Luckily that day, there was a bike-only event so streets were closed off, businesses were thriving and thousands of interesting people roamed around enjoying the sun. Days like this one are what makes me love living in LA.

A foggy day in Santa Monica last weekend
I went to shoot the fog on the beach and I found a man whistling into a microphone. When I asked him if it was alright to shoot his photograph, he spoke slowly and calmly back to me through the amplifier underneath him. His broadcast was to me but it sounded like it was meant for the world. When I got close to him to drop the change I had, his glasses reflected everything he saw back at me. This was one of the most enlightening moments I've had in a long while. It felt like a dream the way everything happened so peacefully. It was an incredible moment.
