This past weekend, I kind of surprised Shannon on her birthday, when a friend of hers suggested I come down for a few days. We’ve had too much fun and it’s almost time for me to go back to work in Maine. I couldn’t come all the way down here without us going on a photo adventure or two, though!
Be sure to go show her blog some love (Shannon’s blog) and remind her that she has one still 😛. I think we both got some awesome shots of this spot, so keep an eye out for those. This iPhone shot is more of a behind the scenes type of deal. I’ll post some cool iPhone abstracts of some ice soon.
I went for a walk around the farm, while it was snowing, the other day. I thought I was going to shoot the fresh snow on the trees, but some areas were too icy to risk walking through. Instead, my girlfriend and I took photos of some of the 40 horses on the farm. This was one of my favorite outfits.
Shot with ProShot using an Iphone 7. Edited with Snapseed, Mextures, and VSCO.
Somehow life got in the way of this blog, and creativity in general.
Work. Relationship. Exploring. Work. And did I mention work?
My life has been much busier in Maine than it ever was on the west coast. Thats probably a good thing, but its gotten in the way of my creative time. I have quite the backlog of Nikon images, which made me want to stop shooting for a while. I even stopped doing much with my iPhone 5s. Honestly, cutting back on the iPhone was more about it being on its last legs. The battery was barely hanging on by a thread. The colder weather here was draining it within minutes 😦
Luckily, there was a great deal that popped up at the right time, and I got myself the iPhone 7, which I never intended to get. What a huge jump in technology it is from the 5s to the 7. I’m loving the camera and the video, along with the processing speed. I feel a renewed sense of wonder with my phone and I can’t wait to see what creative things I do with it 🙂
Here are a couple of images from my first time taking it out to play.
The light was pretty cool. I only wish you could also see the snow falling in the light as the wind knocked it down from the trees.
This is what passes for a trail in Maine…
It was cold and the snow was deep. We didn’t bring any snow gear on this trip because we thought we were going to be on the coast the whole time. That didn’t stop us. I was knee deep in snow at some points.
The whole time I was looking at Wizard Island, I was thinking of my oreo truffles. I know you see it too.
Both images were shot with camera+ and edited with Snapseed.
Somehow, I ended up in Ashland this past weekend We didn’t plan on going there, but spontaneity took us there for a few days. It was great to feel at home again, even if just briefly.
I shot this out on the side of the road up to Grizzly Peak. It wasn’t possible to get up to the trailhead because of snow on the road. We didn’t have chains for the Prius and I don’t have much experience with driving on snowy roads. That didn’t stop us from making it up to Crater Lake though. I’ll post a pic from there tomorrow.
