Santa Cruz Surf Van in Black and White
The VW Bus as a surf van. An iconic subject displaying the surf lifestyle. Santa Cruz, California. This is about as close to "street photography" as I get.

An interesting detail I found while exploring an old mining site in Nelson, Nevada. I was fascinated by the textures in the old tire on the even older wheel.

The second in a set of three black and white photos in a 1x1 aspect ratio. This trip I went looking for photographs that would work well as simple compositions.

I had the opportunity to photograph the interior of an old mill in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I had permission to be there with a guide and a good friend.

Opal Creek, Big Basin State Park, Santa Cruz County, CA
This photograph was made during a short "shakedown" hike in Big Basin. The idea was to get the kinks out of a new backpack. I wrote the rest of the story on my blog here: http://blog.coastalimagesbysean.com/a-short-hike-in-big-basin/
