California skies: Flying over California

SFO (San Francisco) to SNA (Santa Ana)

Last month I went on a short 5 day trip to Southern California. My journey started one early Thursday morning when a plane left the terminal at the San Francisco airport and headed south on its route to Santa Ana. I have many photos and short films to come of Southern California, I can’t wait to share it with you.

Flying over California

The first series I want to share with you of this trip is the getting there part. Travel is not just about the destination but the journey too. I created a short film from take-off in San Francisco to landing in Santa Ana. There are plenty of aerial views of California and cloudy scenes for you to experience. Press play below to take part in the journey!

 

Flying can be a surreal experience. I always try to get a window seat to admire the world from above. You experience some of the most humbling thoughts along with the views.

One photograph and a world of a story

To continue along the journey through California, here are some photographs captured. While I do love film (or “moving pictures” as they once called them) photography will always be my number one. No journey would be complete without documenting it along the way.

It’s true when they say a picture is worth a thousand words. One photograph sparks a world of a story inside you. We all see something different and that’s the beauty of it. But when you put several together to make a story to fill in the gaps for your viewer it’s a powerful feeling you accomplish. Scroll through the photos and tell me, what story do you see?

This is just the beginning of many more photographs of Southern California. Next week I’m sharing a little magic of Disney, sparkling lights, and neon signage! Until then, tell me about one of your favorite travel moments in the comments below.
