One cool couple with a couple cool cars. When Lindsay pulled up for her engagement shoot driving a 1960's Mercedes Benz I was so thrilled and stoked for the shoot. Its not too often that a car like this is used as a daily driver. But I love that she drives it. Matt & Lindsay are your true laid back Portlanders and they were a pleasure to hang out with. We spend the better part of the night just driving around portland enjoying the beautiful weather and realizing what a small world it really is. I really look forward to the wedding and to our new friendship.
This year for Easter we went down to Beka's parents house in Dallas. We spent the night playing games on the Wii and watched Slumdog Millionaire for the third or fourth time. On our way home we took a long detour along the oregon coast and up to Cannon Beach. The drive was so beautiful and relaxing except when I almost ran into a big milk truck passing through Tillamook. When we got to Cannon Beach it was so cold and raining we seriously walked out to the beach took a photo and ran back to the car and headed to a coffee shop. Sadly our favorite Sleepy Monk coffee shop was closed. It's always worth the drive and crazy weather to go to the coast. I am so thankful we have it and I will never get tired of going.
The first camera I learned taking photos on besides my cheap 35mm pawn shop film camera was a Hasselblad medium format camera back in Spokane, WA. I had the opportunity this week to go all out and get a Hasselblad 503 that is in very good shape. Besides having a classic old school way of shooting beautiful black and whites I really wanted this camera for our upcoming trip this summer to Italy. There is just something different about shooting film in this style and format that you cant get from a digital camera.
