Desert Sand Dunes

I don’t think I’ve ever woken up so early for a shoot. Technically I napped for one hour. Ron & Sang were team no sleep because they’re badasses and they don’t need sleep lol. We left at 2AM to catch the sunrise at the Glamis Sand Dunes. The weather was rainy on arrival at around 6AM so we all caught up on some much needed sleep for a few hours. I was honestly very concerned about the rain but it turned out to be a blessing in disguise since it eventually stopped. It smoothed over all the sand and removed the tire marks left by the ATV riders. Plus the overcast weather was perfect for lighting!

Oh the things we do for Instagram.. but in all honesty it’s just wonderful to find an excuse to go exploring with your friends and create some memories along the way. We stopped by Salton Sea on our way back, a place littered with the dead corpses of fishes everywhere. The neighborhood around that area was small and dilapidated but I found it fascinating look at and to wonder about the lives of its inhabitants. I’ve been in bigger cities all of my lifeΒ so when I find myself around smaller communities, the vibe in the air just feels very different. Like there’s a mysterious charm of interconnectionΒ because escape is hard to find.

But here are some remnants of my quick little escape away from LA.
