Back off! Get your own butter! (Taken at Lobster Cooker, Freeport, ME) – LowFi filter applied from Instagram.
Well, with 1000 km’s under my belt as a warm-up for this year’s driving season (yes, it was a late start for me), it was time to step up to the big-leagues and head over to Maine. What prompted me to go? Well it wasn’t the seafood, that was for sure – I’m allergic to pretty much anything that comes from the water. I was purely in this trip for the drive and to see the sights! (Warning: Another very long read!) (more…)
I actually didn’t shoot this. My friend shot this, and this image is highly edited. This was during possibly the greatest vacation I ever took. End of summer 2009, I went to the Pacific Northwest for a few days for fun and relaxation. It was all of that and then some. Just travelling without and stress is a worth ten times more than the cost of the trip itself.
My friend showed me around the Seattle area, and we took a drive down to Portland, Oregon for the day. On the drive back, we elected to drive towards the Pacific Coast Highway, to stop by the Pacific Ocean. We got there a few minutes before the sun started to set. I took a few shots of my own of the sun set, and little did I know my friend was taking photos of me taking photos of the scenery. I turned around and saw her, so I decided to take a pic of her also, and this was that photo. I ended up messing around wit it a bit in photoshop, and I made it look like i was shooting the sunset instead of me taking a picture of her.
