I shared a travel film of my family’s East Coast, West Coast 2013 adventures along with a heartfelt backstory (find it here!) on how perfect all of it was just a couple days ago. Now I share all the mixed photographs I took from more than 30 days of pure wandering bliss — all post-processed by the 17-year old that I was more than a year ago, so new to editing and coloring digital photographs. I remember spending early mornings on my laptop in Honolulu, Virginia, Atlantic City, New York, Las Vegas, all the other cities we stayed in — experimenting around with my 30-day free trial for Adobe Photoshop. It’s been more than a year but I really wouldn’t have colored these photos in any other way.
Ah, this trip was amazing! These photographs warm my heart but they will never do the experience justice. Just, impossible.
I do hope these photographs teleported you to the technicolor places I’ve been, awe-inspiring scenes I’ve laid my eyes upon and all the beautiful people I encountered along the way. These moments and memories belong to you as much as they do to me.
Much love, C
