I’ve been shooting out of a lot of car windows recently. Sometimes I’m going for a certain visual effect but usually I’m just experimenting, or lazy. Either way, shooting out the window is good entertainment on long drives. It reminds me of being a kid, driving around in the car with my Mom, my forehead on the cool window glass, forcing my eyes to unfocus and blur the passing scenery. Turns out it’s way easier to do with a camera. Photography shows us life as we could never see it, I love that. Here are some photos I took yesterday on the drive back from Mt. Evans.
It’s been raining A LOT in Boulder, Colorado recently. Being an East Coast girl, I love it. It’s not the same critical mass of sticky humidity I grew up with back home. It’s hard and fast and yields a heady evaporate of hot sand and sage. The storms are either 15 minute intervals that leave Boulder flooded and blinking, or longer, more epic dowsings. Either way, by the time the lightning hits Kansas, everything in Boulder is washed clean – the roads, the plants, even the sunshine seems crisper. Here’s a collection of photos from yesterday’s afternoon storm.

Special thanks to Justin Ridgely for putting us up, driving us around and making the trip so rad! Check out the article here.
