the photography:
in sonoma county in northern california, things seem to slow to a crawl. the pace of living, the time spent pondering, the moments spent doing, they all seem to slow down to half speed. when you spend much of your time in a city, soaking up the noise, the people, the movement, you start to forget what the country is really like. i remember the first time i spent a night in the woods of wisconsin where i found it too quiet to sleep. too quiet. ridiculous. driving through the southern tip of the redwood forests and watching the ocean rise below you as you wind down a rolling hill, it’s truly spectacular. it’s trips like this that i need to make twice. one to photograph my surroundings and the other to enjoy them. here’s six from the ocean and the dry creek valley. both beautiful, both close in geography and distance but both completely different.

the music:
this is probably the prettiest song written by my generation. justin is an artist who sets the highest of standards for his craft. it’s beautiful and honest. if you haven’t heard this song, you have been doing a disservice to justin vernon and the music public at large. go on, go buy it. it’s breathe taking.
