Just returned from a quick trip to the UK. I’ve visited England more and more over the past several years, and while there’s always something new to explore, it’s begun to feel less foreign, and more like another version of home.

I recently bought the 4-in-1 olloclip lens for my iPhone 5s, which includes a fisheye, wide angle, and two macro lenses.
I spent this holiday weekend up north — catching up with friends staying in Santa Rosa, kayaking on the Russian River (my happy place), and visiting my tiny house, which is currently parked in a yard in Sonoma.
Streets of Seoul
I recently had a long layover in Seoul and took the train into the city to wander for the day. With twelve hours, I did what I love most: explored a new city on my own, wandered down alleyways, hunted for street art, and got lost.

I present to you my past month’s adventures in England and Scotland, via iPhone 4. With the exception of a handful of shots, most of these are Instagrammed.

Then I walk around. I explore where I live.

On (New) Ways of Photographing and Consuming
I show a similar disinterest in my photography. Process and context are increasingly less significant. I’m preoccupied instead with creating the perfect shot for any given moment—worthy of an avatar, of a Facebook cover photo—and discarding the rest. A single unit is easier and faster to create—and consume.
It’s All About Simplicity: A Few Things I’ve Learned About Instagram
I love experimenting with filters on static and solitary objects, clean symmetrical or diagonal lines, uncluttered compositions, and off-center focal points (especially with the tilt shift effect). Simply put, the app magnifies the gorgeousness of simplicity.
