At the border of the urban wild...
Fun fact: you don't have to buy thousands of dollars of REI backpacking equipment and drive 10 hours (or get sponsored to do so) to see a sweeping view, you can actually get some pretty spectacular ones with your street sneakers and a $1.75 bus ride.
More and more people are moving from rural to urban areas every year in this country. I made that same move 20 years ago, mostly because as a gay man I didn't think I had a choice. It took me a while to get reaquianted with the nature of my youth--to realize how powerful it is and to notice that LA is literally surrounded by it--20 million people most all living an hour or less from a mountain wilderness.
We create nature advocates every time we introduce more people to nature, and nearby nature is the gateway drug. I’ll for sure post a #wanderlusting pic now and then, but my plan is to sharing more of all this beauty that surrounds me in the now.
Golden hour is real...jkjk ✨
But for anyone interested and who is feeling lazy, use vsco cam. Temperature +4, saturation +1, skin tone -2, highlight tint +3 (peach), shadow tint +2.5 (orange), and adjust accordingly since every pic is different
But also just trying to introduce yellows and greens into my feed hehe
