It’s been a challenging 8 days for me. I worked 6 24 hour shifts and one 20 hour shift in that short span. Needless to say, I’m feeling overworked and stressed. My eyes have been twitching for about 2 weeks now. I’m ready to go seek peace out in places like you see in the photo from Slacker Hill in SF.
Lucky for me, my aunt has been generous enough to get me a hotel room in Monterey for the rest of the week, so I can try to relax. I already know I’m going to be out shooting sunrises and sunsets in nearby Big Sur and Carmel. Maybe I’ll even get a glimpse of the milky way.
After a few days on the Big Sur coast, I’ll be heading south to the Pismo area for some family time, and probably more photos. Hopefully I return recharged. I just have to hang in there for a few more months before I leave the bay area…hopefully for good this time.
Shot with VividHDR. Though the first attempt of using VividHDR minutes before yielded terrible results, this one turned out pretty good. The first few shots had terrible blends where there were dark pixels around the sun, where they shouldn’t have been. I still don’t trust you VividHDR! This image was edited with Snapseed and Litely.
