This weekend I went on a much needed adventure to Durango, CO. I’ve been feeling stuck in Boulder for a while and needed to get out. It’s a six and half hour drive to Durango, and it’s a shame it’s not closer. It was beautiful. I slept in my car at the Hermosa Creek Trailhead (Free Camping!) and when I came down the road in the morning I saw this:
It’s looking down the valley towards Durango. The leaves are in full fall colors. It was spectacular.
I spent the weekend with Chris Schulte, shooting some bouldering and mountain biking. I hadn’t done any downhill mountain biking for over year. It was good to get out again. Another thing that I would love to get into more…but it’s one.more.thing.
It was a great weekend.
In 2009 I took a whirlwind tour around Europe. This provided me with a TON of photography material. Some of my favorite shots from my trip were random details. This fountain sits in front of the Pantheon in Rome (one of my favorite places in Europe). I had the shot framed and the second before I took the photo this pigeon hopped up the back of the statue’s head. I loved that.
In my work I take a lot of photos, and I don’t always know what to do with all of them. Sometimes they just don’t fit into any category, but you still love them. There’s no real place for them on your website, you don’t want to just post to Facebook. ok. Photo-A-Day is a great way to show off some of this work.
