1. BeeKeepin’ - Jeremy, Ryan, and Reid

    These three gentleman have been my friends for the better part of the last
    10 years or so. I love each one of them so much, but college and all that
    other junk that happens when you’re growing up took us all in separate
    directions for a while. I’ve kept in contact with each other them separately
    and we’ve hung out a handful of times. It was pretty cool to all get together
    and nerd out over Ryan and Jeremy’s recent beekeeping adventure.

     

  2. In the Fog || Sequoia National Park

    There are just some photos you take that put you exactly back where
    you were when you took them. This is one of those photos for me.
    This was a moment when I felt things were right.

    You can’t always feel that way but for that brief period of time,
    anything you had to go through to get there becomes totally worth it.

     

  3. X Marks the Spot || Sequoia National Park

    We went on a hike through the trees, and at one point Edgar climbed
    up on these two, and I snapped this. It was really surreal being around these trees that have lived longer than we ever will. It’s hard to believe anything or anyone would be able to bring them down, but alas here lie
    two of these mammoths.

     

  4. Up a Redwood || Big Sur, Ca

    So one of the things I was most excited about during this vacation was
    the fact that I was going to get to see the giant trees. I remember as a kid,
    learning the song “This Land is Your Land.” For whatever reason it was one
    of those weird things that stuck with me. Fairly recently, I heard a cover of
    that song, during which I heard this lyric..

    "This land is your land, This land is my land
    from California to the New York island.
    From the Redwood forest to the Gulf Stream waters
    This land was made for you and me.”

    Which brought me to the realization that I had no idea what the hell
    that song was talking about when I was seven years old but it
    was a wonderful realization that I had the opportunity to visit both
    New York and the Redwood Forest this year, as I shot this
    photograph.

    It was one of those weird personal victories and that is what this
    photo represents to me.

     

  5. Nikki || Sequoia National Park

    This is my friend and roommate, Nikki. This girl has been for all intents and
    purposes one of my very best friends over the past two years.
    We both needed this trip and I was way super stoked when she decided
    to join me. Roommates are weird in the fact that you can hate each other
    for about 10 seconds, but then one of you thinks of a joke that’s still
    funny several days later and you can’t do anything but laugh about it.

    She’s smart, funny, and one of the most kind people I know.
    I’m really glad we got to experience the wonder of the forest together.

     

  6. The Milky Way || Amarillo, Tx

    So one of my very favorite things about getting away from the major
    cities is the amount of stars you can see by simply looking up.
    Each night we had a pretty radical view of the night sky which
    included being able to see the Milky Way with your naked eye.
    For those of you who don’t live in or near a major metropolitan,
    that is a pretty rare sight. This so happened to be just outside
    of Amarillo, Tx. Amarillo isn’t exactly a small town, but the light pollution
    is dwarfed in comparison to the Dallas/Denton/Fort Worth area.

    TL;DR Stars are rad and I enjoyed sleeping under them and photographing
    the view.

     

  7. On the Road || Petrified Forest National Park

    I just spent 6 days on the road visiting a menagerie of different places.
    My goal was to fulfill a promise to myself, to make it to the Giant Sequoias
    by the time I was 25. I made it at precisely
    24 years 10 months and 26 days
    old, I saw my first ( of many ) Giant Sequoias and I could not be happier
    about it. After over 3200 miles and some where around 2000 images, I am
    home and realizing there is something out there calling me, and I need to
    find it. I’m planning on posting the photos I
    find interesting over the next couple of days and probably weeks.
    This one is of sunset just outside of
    the Petrified Forest National Park.

     

  8. Moon Study

    Denton, Tx

    Lately, I’ve had a lot of emotional flux in my life: guy problems, work, etc. All of which is slightly exhausting. However, I am just trying to stay on track.
    I leave for an eight day long road trip in just under two weeks, and
    I am so excited but also a little scared. Being on the road for so long is
    one of my very favorite things to do, but I am a little afraid to be left
    to my thoughts for so long. Regardless, it will be a wonderful and growing
    experience. Things around and within me are changing, but the moon has
    been my constant lately.

    Ed Sheeran covers Sam Smith’s, Stay With Me on R1 Live Lounge

    I swear this is the last time I reblog this. But I updated that audio file with the BBC1 video which has HD quality.

    Here’s the download link for it

  10. Iron and Wine

    For On Tour Monthly Magazine || Dallas, Tx

    So, the reason I discovered Iron and Wine is because of his
    cover of “Such Great Heights” by the Postal Service, which I 
    don’t especially love. However, when I found out he was coming
    to Dallas with Death Cab for Cutie, I decided to give him a 
    second chance and really enjoyed listening to and watching
    him play live.
