Mavericks

My camera hasn’t been doing much else besides gathering dust in the book shelf as of late. On Saturday morning, we ventured to Mavericks, the world-renowned (in)famous surf spot in Half Moon Bay, CA. Only one day prior to these pictures being taken, the El Nino-spurred waves had reached a height of 50-60 feet. TitansContinue reading “Mavericks”

Brother + Beach

Mattias came to visit this past weekend, so we headed out to the beach in Pacifica for the day to visit old family friends and enjoy the beautiful weather we are currently experiencing. A couple of these pictures are from Friday at the train station after work, however.

Laurelwood Park Hike

Near our apartment is a hill that seems like the highest point for miles. Nathaniel and I have tried to find the base of it to hike up in the past, but could never quite find it just by following our map. He googled around, though, and figured out that it’s a public park. TodayContinue reading “Laurelwood Park Hike”

Bedwell Bayfront Park

The exploration of California continued today with a trip to Bedwell Bayfront Park, which is about 20 minutes from our apartment. While we walked around the park, which is surrounded by salt flats up until the ocean, Nathaniel asked me what my expectations for a shooting location were. Essentially, he asked me if I wasContinue reading “Bedwell Bayfront Park”

Accidental Whale Watching

On Saturday afternoon, we made our way out to the coast (where I’m from!) and went to Half Moon Bay State Beach. We brought along the football and my camera, hoping for a good game of catch and maybe some decent pictures that might end up on some of our blank apartment walls. When weContinue reading “Accidental Whale Watching”

An Evening in Twin Pines Park

Last night, Nathaniel and I took a walk to a park close by our house to throw the baseball around. Naturally, I brought my camera with me in case I saw anything noteworthy. The stars of the shoot ended up being a few birds and a squirrel which were less than pleased to have usContinue reading “An Evening in Twin Pines Park”

How Did We Let This Happen?

There’s something I’ve been thinking about since I moved to San Francisco, that I really can’t keep ignoring or bottling up. Never have I ever seen so many homeless people in my life. I’ve been in the inner cities of Seattle, Anchorage, Lima (Peru), New York, and many more, and I can’t remember there beingContinue reading “How Did We Let This Happen?”

Sunday Swelter

Today I spent most of the day cleaning the apartment and relaxing, trying to keep cool. The Bay was in some kind of pressure cooker- it hit 97 at one point!  This evening, we went to my Grandfather’s retirement home for dinner. It was a night of story-telling, family updates, and great food. On our wayContinue reading “Sunday Swelter”
