If I want to remember something, I take a photo of it. It's just the way I think and function. Thats why I always carry digimon
with me everywhere!
Sometimes for fun I pull out my old hard drives and check out back in time what I was doing, what I was shooting, and where I was in my timeline of life. I thought I'd blog a few pictures, and maybe do this more regularly on my blog...?
5 years ago on June 6th, 2003: Me, Taylor
, and Natalie
took a backpacking trip to the Sierra Nevada mountains for our nature photo class at Brooks. That was good times. Taylor got his truck stuck in the sand so we tried for hours to get it out, to no avail. So we slept there overnight and this dude rescued us in the morning. I named him desert Jack, we never got his real name. He was quite the character!
4 years ago on June 9th, 2004: I shot this for fun while I was going to Brooks and I lived in Santa Barbara. I set my camera on the ground, opened the shutter, and then drove the car to streak the taillights through the image. Kinda fun.
3 years ago on June 9th, 2005: I photographed rapper "Common"
at the San Diego HOB
for Risen Magazine
. I was living in San Diego at the time, and was just 9 days away from getting married to the woman of my dreams! :)
2 years ago on June 15th, 2006: I was in Michigan visiting Bethany's family, and we went to visit the wonderful Pouget family in Canada. I took some photos of their adorable kids, including this one of their baby Cole.
1 year ago on June 4th, 2007: I was moving from San Diego to Oregon and driving with Bethany and my Mom. They were in a separate car, and I stopped to take photos of this scene.
Recently I've been hanging out with my buddy Seth
who is visiting from Japan! Yesterday we ate some Mexican food, then drove around and got some pics of Mt. Hood. This morning we got up at 5:30AM and rode dirtbikes in the hills, and took some photos and videos. Good times. But I haven't downloaded any of those yet, so no pics yet!
