These photos are something else. Like I said, I've been build my craft and becoming better at photography, and these are the first attempts at that, so how did these pictures come by? Well, a couple of friends and I decided to go one of the highest hills in San Francisco, Slacker Hill. We all decided that in order to get the best shots we would go up to San Francisco at around 5am in order to get to the very top. From San Jose to San Francisco it's about an hour drive, so we had to drive at 4am, which wasn't too much of a challenge, and that reason is because I stayed up watching Marvel: Agents of Shield, and thus, ended up staying up the entire night. So when it was 3:15am I started to get head to my friend David's house, picked up Derek, and later a guy by Don came by, and it was my first time meeting him, he arrived at the Mcdonalds that we got breakfast at, because you can't have a 5 star breakfast at 4 am. We hoped on, and as we headed out Don had forgotten that he locked his car, which had some very important things in there, so he did what natural... called a friend at 4am and asked the friend to go and lock the car. Don's friend answered within like 2 minutes, because idk, that's a thing (???) We got that gone out of our way, then drove to Slacker Hill, met some other homies, and started walking to the very top of the hill. All I had to say on the way there is, "Do it for the gram." I mean what else am I gonna say at 5am, beside "Why am I here at 5am??? I could be at home finishing up season 2 of Agents of Shield," But on the real, we got to the very top and it's one of those things that never gets old: I've captured sunrise an abundant amount of times within my photography lyfe, and the first time I was like "WOW", the second time "WOWWOW", and the wow's keep on getting longer and longer. Sunrise is always worth losing sleep for, so after being astonished by the work's of the Gods I started setting up for the shot. I wanted these photos to really show off the early morning colors because that's what I saw that morning. The Golden Gate looks enigmatic during the morning, it looked as though it had brand new paint that morning. After a good that beautiful golden hour ended I, along with the group, headed out, but before leaving, my boy, Aaron Yabes (https://instagram.com/aaronyabes/) said "fuji film" with an accent and I was laughing it so hard, if you ever meet just him to do the accent. The group decided to head out to one of the most famous Instagram sights, the Boat. On the way to the Boat I knocked out because no sleep, an hour drive, and a comfy chair is all that's needed, really. Legend has it that the fly Dutchman was the one that drove the ship, but since the California Drought happened he left the boat there on the shore. Just kidding, no one really knows how the Boat got there, but it is pretty neat and there was parking right there, so what the heck. Don stepped in mud so it was a worth trip. Lastly, we headed to trees... well, that's what they really are trees, but what makes these trees so special is the way they intertwine together to create this freaking beautiful tunnel. The tunnel they crate make sit seem like it's a longer road than usual, maybe it's just me.
Well there you have it. I'm trying my best to really make my colors pop in ever photo when I need them to be popped and desaturate them when the feeling is there. Although I am posting here, on my website, Instagram is still going to be the best of the best with honors, sir You can always check out everything I do on Youtube as well, especially since that new iPhone 6s just came out!
