Travel Thursday | California Big Sur + Yosemite Trip Previews

Travel

Going two for two on Thursday blogging!! Sorry, it’s time to celebrate the small things around here :) This will just be a short post to recap what I’ve been up to this week and why this blog is featuring “filler” content with three days of the same wedding. Thanks for sticking with the blog on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday where we recapped the three day Indian wedding of Amir and Nasrine. Catch up with Day 1, Day 2, and Day 3 by clicking on the highlighted text for each day.

This week I have been in California doing some fine art landscape photography and time lapse in Big Sur and Yosemite National Park. A nice break from shooting brides and grooms and to force my mind to work in slightly different ways and think more about lines, shapes, textures… all those other aspects of photography that are working in my subconscious mind during weddings. I’m thinking about turning this Thursday spot on the blog into a permanent “Travel Thursday” because I could craft a blog post about each one of the locations I visited on these 5 days in Cali! So now we have Wedding Monday, Technical Tuesday, Anything Goes Wednesday, Travel Thursday, and Sneak Peek Friday? Is that interesting to anyone else or should we focus more on weddings besides just on Monday and Friday? Maybe turn the Wednesday or Tuesday spot into something related to weddings in Atlanta?

For now, I want to just tease you with a couple of quick photos from this trip that were taken with the iPhone, yes my trusty iPhone 4 that never leaves my side. Enjoy a few more previews of the views I was getting while traveling for a few days in California!

This is a bit of a personal post today, so sit back for a quick self-reflection and some of my favorite images from the California Coastline. I had been putting this off for some time but finally got around to going though our old photos from California 2009. After our trip in August 2009 we put a few photos up for sale as postcards on Zazzle, and surprisingly they started selling! I knew we wouldn't get rich quick off of Zazzle (I think we make $0.01 per sale) but it was a nice validation that other people out there enjoyed our early photography as much as we enjoyed shooting it. While I think our editing techniques were okay back then, ...

I've been pretty good about pumping out the wedding-related posts, and even recently doing a quick write-up of a new restaurant in Downtown Altanta. What I have not done recently, is shared any personal photos of just our normal life, which mostly revolves around Miles of course. Well, most days for us are really not that exciting with a schedule of waking up, taking Miles to the park and/or museum, while either Betty works on her dissertation or I edit wedding photos/videos. A couple of weeks ago when it was still relatively chilly out, we headed up to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to take Betty's PhD classmate and visiting profess ...
