I’d like to take a photo from each of these views, every day I am home.

I hope your summers are all going well. Take care, and more importantly, HAVE FUN!

today, I awoke to the sound of rain. it made me smile. here, rain brings clouds. I was feeling really sluggish this morning though (slept terribly last night), so I didn’t notice the spectacular nature of the sky until much later. but eventually I was out and about, roaming all over the area. seriously, I must have driven 100+ miles today without even leaving santa barbara county. weird. anyway…besides cloud chasing, I finally got a chance to check out some of the burn areas and general wreckage from the jesusita fire. pretty insane stuff – really devastating. so today, I will leave you with that. more to come.

Untitled_Panorama1headed up the beginning of HWY154, and its already scorched.

_DSC2693caution tape = approach immediately

_DSC2691full set of stairs, perfectly in tact. don’t know how they survived. they lead to total destruction.

_DSC2678I’m thinking this must have been the garage.

_DSC2692crazy how some things can stay standing.

Untitled_Panorama4complete destruction. devastation.

this last photo isn’t a part of the previous ones, it is a different destroyed house. I like it better in color.

to those who lost their homes – karma will be back to help you. don’t loose hope.
long story short, live your life. don’t take anything for granted. we are all here for a reason.
stay safe, stay smart, stay healthy.

okay, I’ll try and keep this as brief as possible. let’s flash back to memorial day weekend. sunday, to be exact. adam and I are in sort of blas√© moods. we’re driving on MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND down to santa monica (suicide mission), for a 2 hour chile group shoot. yeah, I know, right? couldn’t have picked a worse place to go. but that’s besides the point. anyway, some stuff had been going down in our lives, so long story short, we did the meeting, left early, drove to the airport, bought plane tickets and left. yeah, I’m serious. there weren’t a lot of flights out, and a lot of them were a looooot of money. so, within an hour of arriving to LAX, we were boarding a plane to seattle, washington. all we had with us were our small camera bags, phones and wallets. this is something that I have ALWAYS wanted to do…fly away; 100% spontaneous, without really telling anyone, to somewhere I’ve never been before. no notice. no plans. I just love that rush. I’m entirely too blessed. anyway, here is part 1 of my less-than-48-hour journey (which we dedicated to our dearest amy covey – RIP).

fun facts: our stay in seattle was INCREDIBLE – it didn’t rain. in fact, it was 70 degrees and sunny. even in the gloriously snowy mountains…just incredible. and let it also be known that I didn’t tell my wonderful mother about this expedition until I was already IN it…I called her while buying deodorant at rite-aid near buckley, wa. she is literally the most amazing woman on the planet. she wasn’t even mad – more excited than anything. so be jealous! boom. anyway, that’s all for right meow. stayed tuned for part 2! ciao.
