Boys of S.Q. X Daveyoungkim
Got the opportunity to spend some time with an amazing group of boys transitioning out of the juvenile Justice system. Even the beauty of the "gateway to Yosemite" could feel like a prison if you're court ordered to be there. But with the love and care there they will soon be free. .
Each of the figures depicts one of the boys and a home they cherish or a place they hope to be. Inspired by an older style @jetmar1 piece they saw on a tour in SF.
I would totally quit art and start a group home. .
Thank you @caragoger @mariposaarts the hard working staff at S.Q. @mr_edward_kim and the boys for sharing life and your stories.
“If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.” - Vincent van Gogh | This picture was taken on the way out of Yosemite. I was driving down the mountain when I looked towards the right and saw this. It was one of those moments I had to pull the car over and snap a picture. Sorry to all the cars behind me who I freaked out with my sudden pullover maneuver! 🚗😱 | Location: Yosemite National Park, California
This is my summit plushie photo, 🙂 taken at the top of Kuna Peak in Yosemite National Park, 07-15-2018. Kuna is one of three 13,000+ foot points in Yosemite. I've now visited two of them. Getting to the third, Mount Lyell, will be a more involved trip and most likely will wait for next year. It's beyond the distance for a day hike. I had enough fun getting up the talus...metamorphic slabs, shards, and fragments...on this 20 mile excursion out of Tioga Road. Total trip, including stops, was a little under 15 hours. 🙂 I had packed a full load of animals, but the combination of altitude sickness, and the desire to shave 20 minutes minimum from my summit time, limited me to just the one dolly... 🙂 the sea turtle Mom got for me on her last cruise, and the hair locket.#outdoors#outdoor#outdoorphotography#stuffedanimals#stuffedanimal#plushies#yosemite#yosemitenationalpark
