A refreshing Saturday

I went on a solo photo walk to Moss Landing today, and had an amazing time! Today, when I was thinking about going on this walk, there was no sun, it kind of felt like it was going to rain, yet I embraced the day and went anyways. I am soooo glad that I did! Nothing fancy happened on the walk, it was just very relaxing and I felt like I was back to doing what I truly enjoyed … just shooting for fun.

Because I’m taking a film B&W photography class, I decided to bring both my Nikon D200 and my Pentax K1000 along (I love that little old camera!) loaded with Ilford 100 B&W film. I have yet to develop the film (should get to it in a few weeks after PSW), but I fell in love with all of the digital shots I got! (Click here to see them all up-close.) I really felt very happy and peaceful while I was shooting, and was very aware of my surroundings. I have always loved taking photos, but some of the time it feels like work, even though I am enjoying the process. Today was purely for me, just enjoying myself and really capturing the moment.

I don’t think I would have done this if it weren’t for the recent world-wide photo walk that Scott Kelby organized last weekend … it has gotten me so inspired to shoot because I love photography, not to make the “perfect” shot or try to make any money in the process. I’ll have to thank him next week in Vegas if I am fortunate enough to meet him. :)
