i love new years day!
it always feels so bright, so optimistic, so new and fresh.
we started this year at the coast. Seaside—again—just like last year, yet so different.
Cal and I decided Astoria was more scenic… therefore, better for photography. What else would I have in mind on the sunny, first day of the year beside photography?
I mean… you have to start it off right… right?
We ended up climbing the Astoria column. It was a first for me. It was quite gorgeous. You could see all of Astoria from up there. 164 steps up in the sky.
And I had two awesome photo assistants. Cal gave me a boost to take a couple shots that weren’t easy for a woman of my stature (Hey! I’m only 4’11”, folks. The best shots are sometimes above my head!) and his son, Josh, excitedly peeled all of these apart for me.
Once the sun set, we headed home. Oh 2012, you started perfectly!
Happy friday, friends!
