Day 365 (December 31st)

The last day of the year. Man I am glad to be done with this project again. In tradition with how I started and finished the 2011 365 project I did a self portrait. I did a silhouette self portrait for the start of this year so this is the silhouette self portrait for the end of the year. In the next couple of weeks I will be releasing the 365 days of photographs 2 book.

Day 364 (December 30th)

Mellow day. I wanted to take probably the last picture of the tree I love to shoot before I move, and it happened to have a really nice sunset to go with it!

Day 363 (December 29th)

This photo goes out to my long time best bud Kyle, you have always been there through thick and thin, I took a photo a lot like this one in 2011 and to see the changes in life and friendships that I have always had a good friend in him.

Day 361 (December 27th)

I went with Archie up to the pool in Auburn to get a really different picture than what we came up with. This is him in front of a wall with the reflection of the water in the pool. I'm stoked for the video I made to go with this video.

Day 360 (December 26th)

Went over to the skate park today for my last skate of the year and maybe the last skate before I move. It was really good to see a lot of the homies there!

Day 355 (December 21st)

Feeling in a photo rut today, my knee was also hurting again from too much fun the day before, so here is our delightfully tacky pink flamingo with our christmas lights in the front yard.

Day 354 (December 20th)

Had a really fun day trip over to San Francisco today with Lisa. We stopped over at this old pier at one of the old forts by the golden gate so she could get some pictures of the bridge, and I happened to snap this picture and really like it.

Day 353 (December 19th)

Kicked it with my friend Cassie today, we went up to the Forest hill bridge and I found that we could climb up the ladder to the cat walk. Walking up there was pretty crazy how high up you can get.

Day 352 (December 18th)

Feeling super lazy, but I also wanted to take a picture of my one of my favorite ornaments on my Christmas tree. This is another star filter picture, but instead of being shot at f1.8 I flipped it to f22 to see the change and it made a star outline.

Day 349 (December 15th)

Feeling a bit lazy today, so I went and made another incense smoke picture today. I also used an old piece of film as a filter to make the light red.

Day 347 (December 13th)

Met up with John today for a little skate session, he got really close to the trick, but the sun went down before we could get the shot and I put a little bet with him that he had 3 tries left after a little bit of trying it, and this was the bet.

Day 346 (December 12th)

Did a little trip up to SF with my mom today to see Chris's new art show and to see Union Square at Christmas time. I was a really fun day with lots of walking, but it was super cool to see a city full of lights.

Day 345 (December 11th)

I went out front this morning and saw that the grass was covered in ice and I had to shoot a picture of it because it was interesting how the grass held the ice.

Day 344 (December 10th)

Saw these shoes driving a couple weeks back, but the light was never right until today, I just like the classic feel that chucks have.

Day 343 (December 9th)

A really cold night out tonight, but I really wanted to make sure I had a picture of my house and all of its decorations before I move again. This panorama was the hardest post shooting photo I have ever had to deal with!

Day 342 (December 8th)

Just because someone goes to church doesn't mean their a good person. There is a lot of great people I know that are a part of a church, but their might be as many equally awful people who take advantage of others there too. This photo is a symbol for them, how you might show you are something but if you look closer you are a completely different person.

It was a super cold night out last night when I went over to take this picture. This photo was made by making a cut out cross and placing it over my lens as a filter to make any light turn into a cross.

Day 337 (December 3rd)

Took Scoob for a little walk around the block, and went in to this empty lot were there is some random old cars that I shot a few photos of.

Day 336 (December 2nd)

I really wanted to do a follow up photo that I took on my first 365 project. I first took a picture of Chris for my first 365 project with his instillation from the BAN 6 at the Yerba Buena Center for the arts projected on him. With 2 years passing after that show and photo Chris has been continuing to kill it with amazing art works, like this piece protected on him titled "Slant" that was shown at the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany. I am so happy to be able to have worked with him on many of his projects, and I can't wait to see what else he will come up with in years to come!

Day 331 (November 27th)

Had a tired day, looking to sleep in tomorrow! I didn't plan any thing so I ended up shooting my awesome camping ax with my blue light on it to give it the pop art feel.

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

Day 330 (November 26th)

Had a nice super chill day, I was going through some photo web sights and saw these had made cut out filters, and I had to try it! I decided to cut a star to try for this photo.

Day 329 (November 25th)

Mellow day, just developed some film from the trips and worked on some paintings. I took this shot with my point and shoot just to burn the end of the roll before developing it and I like how it came out.

Day 328 (November 24th)

Had a good time on the little Napa trip with my parents, we took a little stop by where the old Sommer ranch have been and this is all thats left of the legacy of it, I wish that my grandparents made better decisions. Its good to learn from the past.

Saturday, November 23, 2013

Day 327 (November 23rd)

Did a little trip up to Napa with my parents to visit some wineries and see Napa a little bit. We got coupons to visit the BV winery which was pretty fun even though there was some really lame wine snobs on the tour, really good time with my family though!

Friday, November 22, 2013

Day 326 (November 22nd)

Worked on a bunch of other photos, got ready for my back to back trips, and I wanted to do another static piece!

Day 325 (November 21st)

Coming come from the Riley compound I encountered a bit of a snow storm that wasn't too bad but made for some great photos when I could stop and take some. This shot was taken at Incline Village's empty ice/snow covered beach.

Went for a little drive around some of Carson City's country and came across these guys and I had to snap a few pictures.

Day 323 (November 19th)

I climbed a mountain to get this picture. It was a really good day hanging out with the Riley's and going for a really nice hike up a good size mountain! I hiked from the patch of houses between my feet.

Monday, November 18, 2013

Day 322 (November 18th)

Hit the road for another adventure over to Carson City to visit the Rileys. It was a nice little drive, stopped for a few photos, then got lunch with my 2nd family, and went out for another little adventure where I shot this photo.

Sunday, November 17, 2013

Day 321 (November 17th)

Went over to Travis's house for Rhyan's 2nd Birthday party, we were all hanging outside before food came out and the light was looking awesome, so I snapped off a few pictures with my hassie.

Saturday, November 16, 2013

Day 320 (November 16th)

Had a little art show over at Beatnik Books in Roseville tonight and a little after party at Sean's house. I really liked this goat skull he has so I decided to take it easy today.

Friday, November 15, 2013

Day 319 (November 15th)

Kicked it with Archie today, I had this photo in mind for a little bit and I am stoked I was able to make it happen like I thought it would look in my head.

Thursday, November 14, 2013

Day 318 (November 14th)

I was really liking how my self portrait turned out yesterday, so I decided to do a double header picture for todays photo. This is my dad getting antiqued.

Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Day 317 (November 13th)

I got this idea a little wile back and just remembered to shot it, so I ended up taking a few face fulls of flower for this photo.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

Day 316 (November 12th)

Had a pretty mellow day, I got this shot chilling in the theater waiting to see Thor 2 which was pretty awesome!
