|This couple was making out on the beach behind the shoot. Anthony thought it pretty funny.|
There was a halfpipe set up just across the street and several kids were rocking it.

|Loved this coastline!|
I met an awesome trio from Germany traveling around the west coast in an Escape Camper Van. Shared a few beers and laughs and wished them well on their travels.

After my shoot I took several days to hang out with friends and explore. I met Anthony a couple weeks before while climbing in Indian Creek. He took me mountain biking on Mt. Tamalpais. It was awesome! Go say high to him at the Sports Basement!
I really loved the Bay area. Marin County was incredibly beautiful and I would love to live there! The weather was incredible while I was there and I was happy to get to see all my friends. If it weren’t for the damn traffic it might be almost paradise.
I’ve been shooting and traveling a lot since my last post. I went to Indian Creek for the first time with some good friends a few weeks ago. It was my first time climbing in the desert and it was amazing, but that’s not what this post is about.
I love being a part of something bigger than myself. It’s how we survive as humans, and it’s how I succeed as a creative. Without others my work would have no meaning. The climbing community is an amazing tool that spans every continent and country. As soon as you reach a new place, search out the climbing community and you’re guaranteed to meet fantastic and interesting people. It’s how I’ve made friends wherever I’ve gone, whether it’s Mumbai or Boulder.
Every trip you take, take time to meet the community around you because they are an incredible resource. Back to Indian Creek: while climbing at Donley Wall I met Anthony Biollato from San Francisco. We chatted for a while and later he climbed the stout 5.10c Elephant Man that I was posted above while shooting a friend on Chocolate Corner.
We exchanged contact info and a week and half later I hit him up when I was in the Bay shooting for Jansport. Anthony hooked me up with a mountain bike and we had an awesome day with some other friends riding Tamarancho on Mt Tamalpias. Such a perfect way to round out a great week in the Bay area.
Being an extravert I take a lot of joy in meeting new people wherever I go, and love that ever expanding network. I get to enjoy amazing places with a lot of great people. Anthony is definitely great people.
