San Diego, CA
I have lived here for almost ten years, and I still find undiscovered nuggets of beauty and new things to try or places to go. This city is where I learned how to shoot on manual mode, how to be patient with photos and that the imperfect shot is sometimes the best shot. Here, picturesque scenery is virtually unavoidable. Go watch the sunset at Ocean Beach Pier, soak in the dreamy shorelines of Encinitas, or drive up to Palomar Mountain to see the stars. San Diego is an outdoorsman's playground, which makes it a photographer's paradise. If you don't live here, get here. If you live here, get outside and bring the camera. Just go shoot. Explore everything. Be yourself.
