Around America

Fresh out of college in 2011, I had planned a month long trip to drive from San Francisco to New York. I'd first heard about this drive from my dad who did the same thing with his friends back in the 70s, and I have always wanted to do the same drive. Of course I had to one up him, so my friend and I decided to drive to LA first, swing to New Orleans, then up the coast to New York. 

My parents had just given me my first DSLR and I finally made the switch from film to digital. The grand scheme was to document this trip and get my first taste of adventure photography. 

And 5 years later, revisiting those photos, I can't even bare to look at them. They're so bad. I mean, I can't even fathom how I had that much time and so much inspiration to shoot, and yet the photos turned out to be basically the worst thing i've ever seen. I tried to revisit some of those photos to see if I could get anything out of them and man, I really can't. (LOL) But if you're interested, you can take a look at my first documentary trip.
