Big Sur –

This is definitely my favorite photo I took in Big Sur! I love the contrast of the red flowers and the turquoise ocean.
There’s actually a kind of entertaining story to go with this one. As I was setting up my tripod for this image, a red Jeep pulled up. Out hops this guy, who reminded me of Danny Da Vito, with a strong New York sounding accent. He starts talking so someone in his car that he later said was his daughter who is a teenager and an aspiring photographer. He proceeds to tell her something along the lines of, “You see that,” as he points to me, “That shot will be amazing. The flowers and the ocean. If you tried to sell that in Jersey you could make a lot.” Then he addresses me, and starts making small talk. As we’re chatting his teenage son gets out and starts making a PB&J sandwich on the hood of the Jeep. He sees me watching in amusement and he takes a picture of his kid making the sandwich. Then he asks me, “You want one?” And I, thinking he’s asking me if I want a PB&J sandwich at 8:00 in the morning said, “Oh, no thank you, that’s a great use of a Jeep hood though.” And he goes, oh, no, I meant did you want a photo?” To that I said, “Oh, no, I’m good but thank you. It’s definitely not the oddest thing I’ve seen.” And he looks at me, laughs and says, ” Yes, I can only imagine!” Life can be so interesting sometimes, got to just go with the flow.
