Today I share with you quite a few images from my recent trip to southern California. Before I share the images, I want to let folks know that I am still processing my thoughts. Part of that process is working through the images and memories. For me personally, the images tell my experiences better than words. In the coming days, I will be sharing more thoughts on this trip in pictures and words both here and on the Salsa blog. For now you’ll need to settle with just images.
I chose to share these 15 B & W because I think they tell a story that hasn’t been told yet. My friends that went on this trip have all shared some images and all of them were in color. I thought I’d give you a bit of a different feel. I also prefer black and white so I think these images resonate with me more than color. I’ll be sharing color images in SC Take 2 coming up later this week.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the images and since I haven’t gotten my words together yet to describe how this trip played out, please leave me a comment if you have a specific question. Also, since I haven’t used the gallery feature here before, click on the first image to view a larger slide show. Enjoy.
These trips and experiences are incredibly challenging. At times they are crushing. But in the end, they are incredibly rich and at times rewarding beyond comprehension.

Nice stuff Gnat, thanks for sharing. Can’t wait to read more about the trip, looks like it was awesome!!
Which camera is this? I can’t ind any specific records in the blog archive of an Olympus digital camera. Something new?
Looks like a great route!
It is an Olympus OMD rented from Lensrentals. With the weather aealing issues I had earlier this year in Japan I wanted something fairly light, high IQ and weather resistant. The OMD is the only camera that ticked those boxes.
Yes the route is awesome!
Love the B&W and the amount of grain you put in when processing these. I’m always jealous whenever I see you guys have gone on another awesome trip. 🙂
Thanks Steve. Don’t be jealous. Let’s plan something for the future.
Great pics, Gnat.
