Discomfort // NW Industrial Portland

A few months ago, I took a photo walk with my friend, Ben.  I challenged myself to do something completely different… to break out of that zone.

Canon EOS-3 35mm

85mm f/1.8

1 roll of B&W film (Tri-X, I believe.)

None of my favorite, go-to gear.  Gritty.  Industrial.  Urban.  So totally out of my element, that I’m still not sure how I feel about them.

I can’t wait to do it again.

November 8-18 // Roadtrippin’

I’ll be on the road again for the next week or two, heading down to San Diego.  I’ve been a bit restless lately and am ready to get back on the open road!

Lord, I was born a ramblin’ man
Trying to make a living and doing the best I can
When it’s time for leaving, I hope you’ll understand
That I was born a rambling man

Catalina Island, CA

In honor of my upcoming trip to California this week, I wanted to share a little bit of a trip to Catalina Island that I took last year with my good friends Sahar and Adam.  I figured some of you could use a little sunshine while I’m on the road again!  Happy Monday!  xoxo

Pigment // San Diego, CA

One of my favorite shops to visit while I’m in San Diego is Pigment.  Besides being a place to pick up beautiful, unique pieces of art, jewelry, and home decor, their store is a visual delight.  The living plant wall is just fantastic.  The last time I was there, I was in need of a birthday gift for a friend and I made a sweet little custom terrarium at their “terrarium bar.”  Seriously, this place – and the owners – are super cool.  Just go, already….

San Diego on my Mind…

Maybe it’s because it’s unseasonably warm and sunny in Portland today or maybe it’s because I’ll be visiting in only a couple short weeks…  No matter the reason, I have San Diego on the brain today.  These photos from a walk through one of my favorite San Diego neighborhoods last June showcase a few of my favorite places.  Enjoy!
