Angeles National Forest


The sun sets behind the most distant mountain. The breeze feels that much crisper on your bare skin. You see the fog rolling lazily along the mountain tops off in the distance. The sky’s hues shift to these warm tones while everything basked in the shadow seems to be bathed in blue tones. No city sounds here, just pure bliss. Mount Baldy, Angeles National Forest, California.

These are photographs from my first roll of black and white film since high school (yes, circa 2008, eek). I can’t believe it’s been that long since I’ve finished a whole roll! I love shooting in black and white because it forces you to think in ways you normally wouldn’t if shooting color. These are in no way related to each other, but I figured I’d share them as a group.
