I had a fun weekend in Northern California.
I flew into Oakland last Friday.
I spent the afternoon getting caught up with my friend, Thomas.
Towards the end of the day, we drove into San Francisco to meet one of his friends, Scott.
I got a little play time in Scott’s car.
Me – in Scott’s Polaris.
We had a fun evening/night in the city.
We started at the Redwood Room and the evening progressed from there.

On Saturday, Thomas and I spent the day shooting in the Central Valley.
The beautiful (?) Central Valley.
There’s nothing quite like listening to Credence Clearwater’s song Stuck in Lodi as you photograph the city of Lodi.
I love when someone else is driving on road trips so I can shoot.
There are always so many photo opportunities from the car.

Saturday night was spent working on large format prints.
Here’s an iPhone photo Thomas took of me holding a print we made:
Making BIG photo prints is fun!
The photo I’m holding is a flower shot Thomas took.
We printed it on metallic paper as a 44 inch by 44 inch square.
All of the huge prints we made came out beautiful.
(By the way, the printer we used is the size of a couch!)
On Sunday, it was raining.
We spent the morning at a museum.
Once the rain stopped, we began shooting west Oakland.
Thomas photographs graffiti as part of his shoot America project.
There’s a lot of graffiti in West Oakland.
Graffiti – West Oakland
We went from Oakland to Berkeley shooting.
Eventually, the day ended with more printing.
I got home late Sunday night.
And now …?
I think I need a nap.
