Over the last couple of months, I have documented my experiences, both in my visits back to San Diego and my life in Leeds, on a point and shoot 35mm film camera that I picked up in a thrift store (a highly recommended thing to do). Following are some of the images I’ve taken, plus some from my Polaroid, as a bit of comparison between the two worlds. Continue reading
Moments in time that many just look over and dismiss as a fleeting feeling, German photographer Josh Kern has captured our attention with his awe-inspiring images on film. Some may overlook these feelings in the moment, move on to the next face, the next motion, the next word that seems to distract from the importance of this second, of right now. We live our lives too fast to realize the emotion and reality in everyday. I am forever envious of people like Josh, who are able to stop, realize, and snap a photo.
Here’s a collection of some of his favorite pieces paired with a song that captures the energy. Continue reading
It’s currently 2017, we have pushed further into the fight for racial and sexual equality, and with the recent Women’s March, females everywhere are realizing their power to make a difference in the world.

Well this is a new idea, our very first vlog/video that is’t from a concert! The other day Ash and I (Kyla) went down to the market in North Park, spread some love by giving strangers sunflowers, watched the sun set from the roof of a parking garage, and just explored around with some friends (Ella, Julian, and Carlos/Curtis) . Here’s a lil’ something I stitched together from the adventure, with a playlist of music that fit the mood.
Every time I turn on the news and check any mainstream media source, there is a new shooting or bombing that has occurred out of hatred. The news anchor will casually say, “17 people lost their lives in terrorist attack, death toll still rising.” Their expressions are non-existent. We are so used to seeing this and only thinking about it for merely a few seconds. We don’t think about the lives that these innocent people were living. The sons, daughters, siblings, mothers and fathers that these people were. We have become so acclimated to this hateful epidemic that occurs almost every day, that we don’t seem to think of it or do anything about it.
It’s time for a love revolution! Continue reading

Here is a selection of some of my best, most recent work. The song, “Ride Into The Sun,” by The Velvet Underground, represents my pieces well. Although it was released as a demo, the song is one of my personal favorites, and is definitely worth a listen. It speaks of how unimportant you really are in a whole city of other people.
The message is from an individual’s point of view. My photos represent the story of each individual as if they were singing the song themselves. They wander the city on their daily commute, trying to live life as comfortably as possible in the city. Each one seeks an escape from the busy city, “the sun.” Continue reading

Yeah, I’ve seen SWMRS like eight times, and yeah, I knew them as Emily’s army. As SWMRS makes a grand entrance into the void of 21st century punk, phrases like these from die-hard fans -like me- aren’t hard to come by. Sure, their debut album, “Drive North,” is fucking great, but why do I have plans to see them for my tenth time in October? So… here are a couple reasons why SWMRS is a changing the game.
