    Another day in Venice. Not a lot to say about this one.

    I didn’t shoot much that day, since I was trying out selling some of my prints on the boardwalk. I did this for a couple months, never really sold too many but definitely had a lot of interesting conversations with people.

    Another day in a week heavily focused on Venice Beach.

    I spent a lot of time down at Venice Beach from 2006-2008. For a good while, it was a nice default way to spend an otherwise free day, despite having to drive out there from The Valley.

    I’ve always loved the ever-changing graffiti wall out there - getting to watch artists in their process, and the perpetual chance that something entirely different could be over a piece I watched be created the next time I went out there.

    NOTE: If any of this is your art on the graffiti wall, please contact me and let me know! Or if you spot it as something a friend of yours did. I’d like to be able to credit the artists, and know whose now-painted-over art I happened to preserve with my camera.

    Roaming around Downtown LA for an afternoon, poking through all sorts of strange little shops. Some pretty good mannequin action from this day, and definitely some interesting sights at the Santeria shop.

    Stopped through Cabazon on the way back from a trip through Joshua Tree. Looking back through the photos from this day, there were surprisingly few decent images from the desert. Can’t win every time, I suppose.

    Another night up in the hills yields more interesting images. Moonlight on broken glass is a beautiful thing, and so is the river of flame that happens during a long exposure on a canyon road.

    We started out with a night drive through the mountains (the route through Santa Paula, it looks like) and ended up somewhere much farther away where we were suddenly snowed upon.

    Having lost track of things in the snowy hills, to this day I have no clue where it is we actually ended up coming out of the mountains.

    A rainy night in which we decided to drive up Stunt Road. I’ve always loved the perspective of this image.

    My attorney and I decided to drive up into the mountains. Angeles Crest / Mount Wilson via Big Tujunga Canyon - a drive we would repeat several times over the following years. The light up there is beautiful no matter what time of day it is.
