TBT: California (The 2012 Bumper Edition)

San Francisco

Zen, bridges, pay your dues, art hustle.



Chill, breathe deeper, take pictures for proof.


Along Highway 1

From Monterey to Morro Bay. I aint never seen no blue like this before.


Los Angeles

Characters, dream chancers, sunset hopes.


San Diego

Naval gazing, sleepy mammals, parks and recreation.

    1. The drive along Highway 1 was probably the most postcard-picturesque I’ve seen.
      I use a Canon 600D (though some of these may have been taken with a 1000D at the time). For this trip, I shot with these lenses; Canon 50mm 1.8, Sigma 17-70mm 2.8 and the Sigma 18-200mm.
