Joshua Tree Texture

I made a concerted effort to capture some of the textures I saw in Joshua Tree during my last trip. The photos don't have much of an impact by themselves, but seeing them all together has an effect. Together, they are more descriptive of the climbing and camping experience than any of the individual photos in the gallery. I think this texture experiment might be worth repeating.

Joshua Tree Climbing Trip Photo Gallery (Indian Cove 2014)

I haven't been doing a good job climbing lately. School is getting in the way. As you may or may not have known, I hit my peak and then basically unintentionally abandoned the sport in favor of a late weeknight class.

That thing didn't stop me from accepting an invitation to Joshua Tree, as much as that would have scared the pants out of in-shape Maria if she so much had skipped a work out. I just don't expect too much and I'll have fun.

My photos from the trip are included in this post. Scott and I went as a pair and were alone for a majority of the trip so I didn't get to take as many photos of actual climbing as I would have liked. Its difficult and straight up dangerous to be a photographer while belaying, don't you know. So forgive this post if it has more ambiance than adventure climbing.

Buffy in San Dieguito

Buffy can not wait for her walk
 Buffy begged, just begged me to go on a walk and car ride today. I went to my car to clean lipstick stains off of my rear view mirror when Buffy ran out the door and refused to get out of the car. That is why we went. We went on a sweet little walk at the San Dieguito trails. 

I spent a lot of time thinking about this blog, actually. Did you know that I've had this blog for 7 years?

Mission Valley Resort Hotel Part 4, denouement

I finished my last stint at the Mission Valley Resort Hotel. I promised four sessions, and this session marks the last. Its a shame too, because I was really starting to get it. This session has the best light exposure, the least bluriness, and the most usable angles. These four sessions were like a short course in interior photography. Now that its over, I think I can happily say that I wouldn't do that again.
