Inconveniently Creative

I’m not much of a ‘writer’ in the sense of being grammatically knowledgeable or having a vast vocabulary. However, I have learned that writing the way you think or speak is interesting enough in its own right. I write occasionally, but usually not outside of my day job. I am curious if this is something I want to explore this year and in the future.

Taking photographs is certainly a great creative outlet, but is it not more powerful with the addition of words? I’m going to explore this idea and see how it changes the way my mind works. Right now, I feel that my thoughts occur at all the wrong times, but I’m planning to make a concerted effort to still write down thoughts as they happen. Even if it’s inconvenient.

Here are some images from a recent trip to Southern California. There’s a little bit of everything, landscapes, portrait, narrative. What’s your favorite category to photograph?


  1. Portraits are my favorite. It’s something about connecting with the person through the lens that captures my imagination. Your photographs are beautiful!

    Love these pictures! Thanks for visiting my beach.

    • Haha! You bet! It’s actually a restaurant featured in one of my favorite movies ‘I love you Man’. We just happened to park across from it at Venice Beach.
