I looked out my kitchen window and saw some interesting light. So, I grabbed my raincoat and hat, the monochrome and the 50-cron, and headed out the door. In my haste, I left the yellow filter behind. The sky wasn’t that blue, and I didn’t need to be weighed down by a yellow filter. Six blocks later, I was a bit apprehensive of the wet sidewalk. The sea was rough, and I might get my camera wet. I braved the wet sidewalk and got a few snaps.

Day 6 - Extra Day in Joshua Tree
The sky cleared up today and after a little back & forth on driving my friend’s stick shift Jeep I ended up saying “f**k it” and drove out to the park. It had been a while since I last drove a stick and I was scared that it did.. stick… but it did and it reminded me how much I loved to drive a vehicle thats manual transmission. IT’S SO MUCH FUN! I was glad to find out yesterday that Joshua Tree National Park is OPEN. There was a guy at the gate yesterday but not one today… however, I gotta admit, even though there was a lot of speculation about the park being closed, it made it much more enjoyable. It felt like I was the only person in the park. The light today was prime and me and my 50mm had a real good time. There’s nothing like taking a nice solo drive thru a park full of Dr Seuss trees. If only I had another day…
Floating over limitless clouds on a safe and easy journey to winter in California. It’s great to know @qantas offers great vegan meals if you request them. 😊
It’s snowing in the Sierra Nevadas, too. Yeao! ❄️ Already missing the horses. 💕🐎
We're going to Topanga Canyon in a few weeks, and Charlie is already stoked. His California love is strong because Uncle Johnny is there and because the Golden Gate Bridge is there. He's a major fan of all bridges, but especially suspension bridges. He's been drawing up a storm. #californiadreaming
