Point Reyes, CA

“A traveler without observation is a bird without wings.” - Moslih Eddin Saadi

Another day on the road meant another day with the wind tugging at my hair, the calming scent of the sea breeze, and the slight pain of not having cruise control. Driving to Point Reyes was another journey at left me in awe. Every turn a new sight to see, a new quirky town, or another giant towering Redwood tree. Once I arrived at Point Reyes, I happily had the beach to myself. I landed right around golden hour which as we all know, is totally amazing. I was welcomed by a few seals that quickly scurried back in to the water and to the distant barks of elk that were living on the preserve. I wish I could have spent more time on this beach, but driving down those crazy windy roads at night through the forest seemed like something to be saved for another day.

 

Pacific Coast Highway

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” - Samuel Johnson

As any traveler who has experienced even just a segment of the Pacific Coast Highway, one knows the true magic of those long winding roads. I spent only one day driving from San Fransisco to Big Sur and back. I was hoping to continue further but there was a bridge out and I had to turn back. The encapsulating mist from the ocean, the cool forest floor within the Redwoods, each part of the highway constantly changing. This little day trip has inspired another trip that will involve a few weeks, a boy, and a dog. 

 

Taos, New Mexico

In March I visited my brother and his soon to be wife at their amazing home in Taos, New Mexico. We went skiing, hiking, ate tons of tacos and beans, and enjoyed time as a family. My parents also came with so it was wonderful to have the whole family together. The big skies, desert weather, and mountain life filled my soul with adventure.

Carolina, Christopher and Hudson are such a lovely family with a new little member on the way. We had a great afternoon walking around Greenpoint, Brooklyn taking pictures and getting to know each other. Looking forward to shooting their new addition in about 2 weeks!

 

Land's End, San Fransisco

After a few obstacles I had to overcome, I finally rented a car in San Fransisco and made it out to Land's End and took a stunning hike as the sun was going down.

San Fransisco Wharf

Walking through the wharf in San Fransisco in the rain was wonderful. It brought out all the funky, fresh fish smells, the colors seemed brighter and purer, and there were a lot less people walking around.
