The Meadow Fire

A few weeks back we took a quick drive out to Yosemite. The park was its typical beautiful self, only there was a huge wildfire raging that day. Huge clouds of smoke billowed from behind the Half Dome and could be seen from just about anywhere we happened to be throughout our one-day visit. As the sun […]

Weekend Voyagers

The weekend was a whirlwind. One day in LA with my cell phone as my only camera and my picture taking almost exclusively limited to a concert venue. I feel like I might be getting a little old for super-fast trips like this (so. very. tired.), but hey, we’re still happy to go out of our […]

VSCO 02

A day before my cousin and I shot a recent wedding together, we took a stroll in the neighborhood where he grew up, an area his immediate family still calls home. He’s been away from San Francisco for many years now, so coming back to his old ‘hood without ever seeing its slow transition from […]
