Camping as an adult for the first time part i (December ‘18) - someone loans me this tent, an air mattress, sleeping bag, headlamp, and pretty much everything else. I have an amazing time.⠀

Last weekend I went to Kmart in Watsonville and bought this same tent, a cooler at Big Lots, and some other supplies for as cheaply as possible. I’m going to have an amazing time!⠀

⠀⠀
Cruising down highway 1 through Big Sur, city sights and noisy crowds falling away sharply like the land to the right of the road. Blue skies mostly obscured by sheer clouds, everything under them still lush and green. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Filling the cooler to the brim with ice and simple good food near Morro Bay. Winding through the stands of eucalyptus trees that welcome you like royalty to the campgrounds. The small domestic movements of setting up the tent, the “kitchen.” ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
The ocean was as unusually vivid turquoise. Skipping stones devolves into throwing rocks at the shore, stones worn so smooth by the waves they each fit in the palm of the hand perfectly, differently, peacefully.⠀⠀
⠀⠀
Someone left a single red rose stuck into the sand. Rough rocks jut into a rough sea, an alien landscape so familiar to this coast. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
A warm fire and dinner at dusk, hot tea to counter the sea chill from earlier and cooling night air. Crickets. A large creek does its babbling. The quiet rustling and clanking sounds of other campers nearby going about their nightly routines. ⠀⠀
⠀⠀
I fell asleep before I could remember to fear waking and woke up without dreaming ❤️ ⠀⠀

#fbf Tahoe on #Portra400film⠀
Photographed my first film/digital hybrid wedding last weekend and can’t wait to get the scans back! Shooting some boudoir portraits on film and being shot for creative portraits later today. Going camping next week 😊🙃 I’m a happy girl⠀
⠀
Would anyone be interested if I started recording and sharing the film camera and exposure settings too? #sheshootsfilm #walnutavenuetravels  @sierra_at_tahoe

“You don’t have to try to “be positive”; you just need to try to be real with yourself. Dig down to your core, and move from there with intention, focus and love.”⠀

Shot on #Portra400 / scanned by @bayphotolab / Thanks Jessica for volunteering to run outside of your own apartment and walk back and forth so I could stop waiting at the window for someone to cross the street with style and we could go get dumplings #meghansf #sanfrancisco #sheshootsfilm ⠀
🏡 I’m looking for roommates in the Bay Area, if you know of anything I’d greatly appreciate the lead ❤️
