OB Meets Venice

Some of the best photos that I’ve ever shot are the spontaneous ones, and even the ones I doubted I’d like at all. This was a different situation, mostly user error, but more on that later… The cars in these photos caught my eye while I was wandering through Ocean Beach a few weeks ago, and the palms you see in the bottom were shot from my hotel balcony in Venice Beach, California, just three nights ago.

Salvation Mountain

Salvation Mountain was the first stop along my day-trip to Niland earlier this year. I previously shared photos from my visit to East Jesus located further down the road in Slab City. I actually discovered this location through Instagram. I’d seen many stunning photoshoots done here, so I figured it would be a visually appealing place to check out.

Playing Tourist in San Francisco
