Most of the pictures I have up are from a trip I took to Northern California last week. It was pretty chilly on the beach, which I should have remembered since I have lived in California for 4 or 5 years during my life.
It was worth it, though. There were just a few people around and it felt like it was just me and the water and the setting sun.
Taking pictures is awesome because it can help you remember something that you did in a way that is tough to capture with words. It also can make even a left-handed, all thumbs guy into an aspiring artist. All I have to do is click the shutter release. Even I can do that.
