SUN, SAND, BEER, FRIENDS
I am not a professional photographer. Meaning, I don't make a living taking pictures. I respect people who choose to do this as a profession as it is not an easy process.
I bring this point up because people often ask me, 'what do you shoot' when they see you out and about with your camera and man purse. I generally don't have an answer that resonates with most, as my response is generally, 'I shoot events that occur in my life'. I believe that most individuals expect a response such as, 'I shoot weddings, I shoot family portraits, I shoot senior photos, I shoot concerts, etc..' I do these types of jobs from time to time but my passion is to simply document life. It reflects my photographic style (if I even have one?) I suppose. I love looking back thru album after album and reliving those moments thru photos and capturing a moment here and there that makes you appreciate the past and look forward to the future. It's part of the reason why I enjoy my Fuji X system as it is small enough to go where I go and produces high quality images to satisfy the photographer portion.
With that being said, I'm sharing some photos from a recent trip to San Diego. I lived there for two years and whenever I go back to visit, I always feel the love. More recently the San Diego brew scene has exploded, I didn't realize that there were that many breweries. If you haven't checked out some of the fine establishments down there....you need to. Ballast Point, Thorn, Monkey Paw and Hess just to name a few.....Thanks to Ryan H. for the invite and to the San Diego crew for the hospitality. Cheers until next time...
Now a few photos...
