GO WEST...

For spring break this year we took the family West. We opted out of the Dodge Caravan from Budget rental car and went with a '91 VW Westfalia instead. It had manual windows, a crummy stereo and not nearly the amount of cup-holders, but a whole lot more character. I promised my kids they would thank me for the experience later. We started in San Francisco with my sister and then hit the PCH South. With Big Sur in our sights, we were stopped short by a road closure due to all the heavy rains. You know that whole saying in life about "Plan B"... well its true, you better be ready. We spun around and headed North and landed in the Armstrong National Park, just outside of wine country. The destination wasn't nearly as important as the journey and for that I am forever grateful. I'm still working on convincing the kids....but rest assured, they'll get it one day.

I carried one camera and one lens.

NIkon FM 2 with a 35mm 1.4. I swear I could take every shot from here on out with that setup.

Film: Kodak 400 Portra NC and Ilford 100 FP4

Get out there and drive around. You'll be amazed at what you'll find.
