Travel Thursday | California Big Sur + Yosemite Trip Previews


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!

Summer Vacation | China Trip 2015 Day 12 | Jingan Temple & The Bund Shanghai
Day 12 was our second day in Shanghai for our China Vacation 2015, and we explored some of the more touristy things that the city has to offer, but of course I did go back to The Bund in the evening to check out more of the famous skyline views! Another day putting the Sony A7ii to the test as a travel camera! Jingan Temple in the middle of Shanghai, with high rise buildings all around the courtyard. Jingan and the surrounding high rises of Shanghai. Of course writing this I totally forget the name, but this was another temple in Shanghai that I was able to get taking a tourist sightseeing bus :) The famous singles ...
Beijing Day 4: Tiananmen Square & Forbidden City
Day 4 – our final day in Beijing – meant seeing what EVERYONE has to see when they visit: Tian An Men Square and the Forbidden City. Did we save the best for last? I’ll leave that up to you as you review these photos and the ones in our previous Beijing travel photography posts: Day 1 & 2 – Temple of Heaven & Great Wall or Day 3 – Summer Palace & Winter Palace. Tian An Men Square, the People’s Square, is just that: full of people!! Now I though we saw a lot of domestic Chinese tourists at the other historic sites we visited, that was nothing compared to Tinanmen Square and the Mao Zedong mausoleum. We saw the typical histori ...
