A few Instax photos from the trip

Hi, I just got back from a little road trip. Ron was out in Nashville for work on Valentine’s Day, so we took off a few days and drove up to Monterey to celebrate a little late. I had no idea what to expect since i’ve never been there before. I must say, I feel more inspired than i’ve been in a long time! The drive from Monterey to Big Sur (on the California 1) is indescribable. It stormed on the days we were there, including the day we drove around the cliffs to Big Sur, but it was beautiful. I think the rain made our trip to the forest just a little more magical.

I’m dropping off a few rolls of film tomorrow, so hopefully i’ll have more photos to share soon. Hope everyone had a good weekend!

I couldn’t leave without sharing this Decemberists song (it’s one of my all-time favorites): California one – The Decemberists

    I agree – I think dreary can make that part of the state look even better. Did you go to the Big Sur Bakery? Best pancake on the planet.

        it’s next to the post office when you’re driving on the only road through town. you could miss it if you blink. but the pancake is worth a return trip. it’s 5 (maybe more?) grains and made in a skillet in a wood burning stove. blow your mind delicious.
