It’s been quite a while since I’ve been on here to get in some writing and leave an update. The past couple of weeks has been crazy with a new internship and although I still have a few weeks before graduation, i’m trying to finish up my portfolio so I can get my portfolio sent out to some agencies, maybe land a job in time for graduation? All I can do is try my hardest and hope for the best!
While I was home for break I did a lot of thinking and a lot of hiking! I was able to see my good friend, Stephanie, for the first time in probably over a year. She’s wonderful, she’s moved off to Denver to pursue her career as a teacher. From what she tells me, she’s loving the Colorado lifestyle and couldn’t be happier getting to spend time with the children she teachers, and that’s saying a lot for teaching at an all boy’s school!
Anyways, here are a couple of shots that I wanted to share. One morning I went hiking with Steph and her family. It was a great work out and it was awesome getting out there with them, great bunch!
California, you are one amazing state. I can’t wait to revisit you and see what more you have to offer. For those of you who haven’t been following me already, or aren’t close friends and family, I’ve been living in San Francisco for the past couple of months. An amazing opportunity for schooling that I couldn’t pass up. After years of trying to find a way to get there, my escape route from the east coast turmoils were screaming at me to take them, so I did. Check out my earlier posts to see the trip there!
Okay, anyways, California! So much had happened during my time there. I made a lot of new discoveries about myself as a person and as a creative. I didn’t like life for a while, too much trouble, and was looking for the easy route – fuck that. The easy route would have left me weak and there’s so much more for me in this world, I need to take those risks and to scare myself so I can grow. Something I’ve really been able to follow over the past few months.
I’m writing around in circles because there’s more to be said, but I’m not sure if I’m ready to say it. I wish all the best to my friends as we start parting ways to find what else is out there for us, can’t wait to come across your paths once again. Especially, you.
If you asked me a year ago from today, if I thought that I would’ve spent a couple of days in the desert in a year, I would’ve laughed and walked away thinking you were a crazy person. My oh my was I wrong. Not only did I spend some time in the desert, I checked out Arches National Park and the Grand Canyon.. THE GRANG CANYON! I really don’t think there’d be anything else in the world that I’d want to experience for a national park now. I’ve seen all the cool ones, the rest are pretty much like backwoods in comparison (I’m guessing).
Here’s a collection of shots that I took during the later half of the trip. We pulled off a lonely highway one early morning a couple of hours outside Moab, Utah and then made way for the Grand Canyon & Scottsdale Arizona within a couple of very hot days.
Enjoy the selected shots from the trip, let me know what you think of them!!
Ladies & Gentlemen, we have been finally blanketed by snow! Originally planning on going snowboarding on this Friday off, my gloves have been swiped and decided to poke around Hampshire County with my camera. Here are some awesome shots I got from my Hike at the Notch in Hadley!
