‘local’

local

Came across this video today. It was posted on a blog that I like less and less, so I’m not even going to link back to it. But This vid was a nice reminder of what summer felt like growing up in Utah. There is also some decent skateboarding.

Vegas

I took a break from the frozen tundra of NYC to visit Las Vegas over a long super bowl weekend. It is always fun to pal around with locals. Instead of hanging out on the strip, I spent my time there exploring the old grittier side of the city. I saw friends, made some new friends, and just generally enjoyed the desert.

Foggy Weekend

IMG_9384

Sunday afternoon I took a drive up the Hudson. I’m kicking myself now, for not bringing a real camera. The fog and spitting rain (coupled with the unseasonably warm temp) made the Hudson valley seem otherworldly. Here are a few snaps that I got with the celly.

I almost didn’t make it out west for Thanksgiving this year. Airfare was a bit outrageous when I first started looking in August. Thanks to Kayak’s price alerts, I was able to snatch up a relatively last minute flight for a decent price. I think that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. Interestingly enough, I heard several of my friends echo this sentiment during the weeks leading up to the holiday this year. Various reasons were given.. because it is non-religious, because it is during the fall, etc.. I’m not really sure why I like it so much. I had a really good one this year. I was able to see my parents as well as each of my siblings. I was also able to meet my newest niece. There are few things that are as satisfying as spending time with my peoples.

I shot this show on Palomino Island. I lost my wallet, and got really sunburnt. Also, I had fun. If you find my wallet please mail it to me.

snaps de la weekend

Processed with VSCOcam with b1 preset

I had a b-day over the weekend, and went on a bit of an instagram tear. And although I brought my real camera with me, I didn’t use it even once. As much as I hate posting crappy iPhone photos on here, I’m doing it anyway.

Buffalo

2014-shotbyjake.com-4204

I found out sort of last minute that I wasn’t going to have to work on Columbus Day. I didn’t have enough miles to go anywhere fancy, but wanted to get out of the city. I ended up booking a quick trip to Buffalo NY. I have friends up there, and I had never been. It ended up being a really fun time. Here are a few snaps.
