On the coast of California — color film.

Because our road happened to pass through the famous haunts of one of my favorite writers, I found it fitting to quote him.

“What is the feeling when you’re driving away from people, and they recede on the plain till you see their specks dispersing? -it’s the too huge world vaulting us, and it’s good-bye. But we lean forward to the next crazy venture beneath the skies.”     -Jack Kerouac

Also, much to my surprise I got freshly pressed again, so thanks WordPress person whose job it is to select freshly pressed posts, and a big hearty thanks to everyone taking the time to read and look.


Photos taken with my (Dad’s) Leica Mini-zoom and expired ISO 400 color film.

  3. These photos have a vintage post card feel for me. Maybe because I was looking through some yesterday. Nice.

  4. Love the shot’s, man! And the Kerouac quote you used is spot on fitting indeed (also I might add one of my all time favourite’s). Congrats on being ‘freshly pressed’ also! Comments have been flooding my email box, LOL.

    the feeling you created in the 3rd photo (2nd line), is a bit interesting.
