Abstract / California / Impressionism / Photo Log / Photography


May 8, 2015. Devil’s Slide, near Pacifica, California. For Chewy’s Birthday walk, we settled on two places: Land’s End in San Francisco and Devil’s slide. Chewy always loved the sea breeze.

Highway 1 had years prior been routed through a tunnel at Devil’s Slide (that portion having lived up to its name far too often), leaving the old Highway 1 free to be used as a park with long stretches for Chewy to run and unobstructed views of the horizon for me and Mr. Nikon to soak up.


The boy had a great run — you can see him comin’ to papa — while the horizon had something special for me. Later in Photoshop, I had something special for it, too. As I worked away, Chewy lay next to me dreaming of the sea breeze blowing through his hair.

This post is a break before we go deep into AbstractLand. It might be a bit of a clue as to what’s to come. Sort of.
