So, it's been another long week. Actually, to be honest, it's been a long couple of weeks. I don't know what it is lately but it's been rough. I'm not sure why but it has. I'm sure it's been just me. I hope everyone else has had a good couple of weeks. The highlight of last week was our short little trip down the Big Sur coastline. I think we may need to do this more often as neither of us has taken very many photographs this year. 2013 is currently making itself out to be one our thinnest years as far as photography is concerned. Perhaps that's okay. Maybe we'll finally be able to sift through our early photography years (a.k.a., 2004-07ish).
We should probably try and get out a bit more...at least as far as shooting is concerned. There was something about being behind the lens again trying to capture the moment. Trying to create a feeling. I'm sure things will pick up as winter turns to spring and we get into the swing of things this year. Until then though, you may be seeing some old photos of ours for Thirsty Thursdays. Here's too looking forward to the end of the week and the start of a couple days of break. Perhaps raise your glass to taking a few more photographs. Cheers!

During the long break last week, instead of fattening up on turkey or pie or both, we spent the week/weekend wandering around the Alabama Hills near Lone Pine, CA. We were actually hoping that the weather for the trip would be quite miserable. In our heads, we have somehow translated miserable weather into quasi-cloudy skies which become fantastic sunrises or sunsets. But, alas, we had fantastic weather (good for the Massey) with no clouds in sight. This seems to be our lot in life lately. The clouds seem know when we want to shoot and just disappear (darn those high pressure systems). Although we didn't have any clouds in the sky, we had a fantastic time hiking around the hills, watching the Mas tear it up (a future Massey Monday), and just trying to find those keeper shots. The first day was all about looking for sunrise/sunset spots to shoot and, of course, hunting for arches. We'll have a future post full of the sunrise shots, but for this post, here's a few hunting for arches...and maybe a few of the gorgeous mountains.
