Wow, what a trip! One week traveling in Jordan and I can’t believe how much we experienced. I brought along two rolls of Fuji 400h and one b&w Ilford 3200 (not yet developed, haven’t finished off the roll yet). Here’s a glimpse of our magical mystical trip…
It was my 30th birthday at the beginning of May! I decided to get out of town to celebrate and visit this little mountain town I had been hearing so much about. San Miguel de Allende, the magic is real.
All of these were taken on my iphone and edited with VSCO
Mama Mia Restaurant | Those lanterns…We stumbled into a live salsa band here Saturday night too.
He didn’t bark at us, whatta good boy.
View from the 2nd terrace of our airbnb. Such a sweet spot!
A man from the coffee shop next door (Café Eluney, mmm those quesadillas) gave us a tour of this hidden gem of an alley. Wish I could remember the name…go ask them if you visit!
El Tupinamba | Any time we walked past this place there was live music and a fun atmosphere. We stopped in for Flamenco night, such good vibes and a passionate performance by the first male flamenco dancer I’ve ever seen.
We told the taxi driver to take us to his favorite taco place. We could not stop eating these. A hole in the wall near the main square, go find her!
Lavanda Café | A very popular breakfast spot, live guitar music, just swell.
I just loved this town and these beautiful people I got to experience it with. We didn’t have time to visit Guanajuato, that’s #1 on the list for next time. Also…blog post on the Chapel of Jimmy Ray coming soon!!
Born and raised in LA and I had never witnessed any of the Day of the Dead parades on Olvera Street. This year I set the date on my calendar and headed out with my Canon AE1 and a roll of Porta 400 film. Oh what a sight it was to behold…
I keep ending up in NY! One of my favorite people lives there (hi Sarah) and it was her birthday last weekend. We had a big campout celebration at her cabin with two other friends with close birthdays plus maybe 15 more people from Brooklyn and Albany. We were all forced to unplug from our devices – no service for miles and it was kind of awesome! Here is what my camera saw…
To celebrate the bride to be we drove up from Los Angeles to Sonoma County for a wine tasting adventure!
I have this idea stirring in my head – something along the lines of the “Imperfect Portrait Session”. I’m really inspired by the look and feel of film. You may be blinking or out of focus but that is what was captured and that image is what you will treasure forever. I am someone who takes a million photos to capture that perfect moment but lately I’m more and more drawn to those dreamy imperfections that film so beautifully creates. So, who is into this idea? I’m ready to make it happen.
This was such a beautiful day! Snowcapped mountains in the distance, blue ribbons twirling with the wind, majestic creatures, and some family bonding…perfection. Documenting these family experiences is one of my favorite things!
I was on a boat for new years…and I had strep throat, which means I was instructed by the ship’s doctor to stay in isolation in my room (hence the solo reflection picture of me celebrating with myself). Just thought I would get the worst part out of the way. But then this boat took me to glorious places and I didn’t have strep throat anymore! Good story, eh?
Anyways…Dominica had the greenest greens I have ever seen. Bonaire had the bluest blues I have ever seen. St. John had the most epic rainbow I have ever seen. In Curacao, a smiling character walked right into my shot – the easiest portrait I have ever taken!
I feel so lucky to experience all of these beautiful places.
Going on a trip? Take me with you! Seriously, I am travel sized and take pretty epic pictures :)
This girl (pictured below). One of my favorite people and she moved away from me to Denver! Well, the only good thing about this is I got to visit her in Denver! I had never stepped foot in Colorado before last week and was so happy to have an excuse to visit. Here are some photos from our mini roadtrip up to Winter Park and the Continental Divide. I might have complained a little too much about the cold but the photos turned out misty magical. It was worth the temporary freezing of my limbs.
