Well, I’ve processed all of the photos from my great California adventure but I’m definitely not really ready for re-entry into my regular life. I’ve found it hard to articulate my Camp Shutter Sisters experience into a post but I will say that it was an amazing few days. I’m really glad that I was able to keep vacationing after Camp as it helped me to keep that experience with me a little longer.
Of course I took a ton of photos while I was on vacation. What’s unique about this trip is the number of self portraits that I took while I was away. By literally putting myself in the picture I’ve added a new dimension to my holiday snaps. Plus, I had a blast taking them.
Playing with self portraiture in front of graffiti murals is a trick I learned from Viv in You Are Your Own Muse. This is in Santa Barbara.
This one is in an awesome alley of graffiti murals in the Mission in San Francisco. This photo is a bit of an oops. I set the timer and ran over to get in the photo, then once it was taken I realized that my camera had slid off its perch on my bag and was on a ridiculous tilt. In the end though I love the tilt. It kind of looks like I’m holding onto the wall for dear life as the world turns.
p.s. I fell totally in love with San Francisco. The wannabe bohemian artist in me wants to move there really, really badly.
