Thinking Outside the Garment Bag: We Took The HWY

Graffiti in one of the bathrooms...we were not the only one's.

In a Wedding Chapel in Harmony, CA. Population 18
Old abandoned Hotel on HWY 1

I know I did not benefit my eyes from all the sun shots, but it was beautiful!

Gwen snapping pictures....we were camera crazy the entire time!

Little Napoli, where we ate 15 years ago.

Bixby Bridge.
I was obsessed with Jack Kerouac books!
My favorite Picture of Gwen.

We are such different characters, but we get each other. What an awesome time we had! Big Sur and Carmel were amazing!! Time has changed us in some ways and in others completely rooted what we were just discovering about ourselves 15 years ago.

I am always jaw dropped by the Photodiarist and her black and whites. Her photos are pure though and I had to use programs to get the look I wanted. I had to credit her inspirational photos.

Check out some more pictures here :)

you look like you had an awsome time, it's so great to catch up with old friends... people that have known you and see you grow up after so many years.. for me, those people are my real family and i'm so thankful for having such great friendships.

Here I am, scrolling down each photo, carefully checking out each one and thinking that you really rocked these B&Ws . . . and they I get to the end and I see your awesome note! Your B&Ws are amazing, Cristi. They are pure because they represent you and how you were interpreting the moments with your friend. I loved them. Thanks for the nice things that you say about my work . . . but know that your work inspires me too!

You guys look like you are having so much fun! I am still trying to understand the New Zealand connection...does she live there but is from here? I am assuming you are a Cali girl right???
Merry Christmas!
