Scenes At Night/

I walk by this spot in town a few nights a week. I have photographed it before but last night was the first time I gave it anywhere near the amount of attention it deserves.


::Startling departure from normal theme::

I live in a small town in Northern California. It’s unique in many ways beyond my primary focus of nature and landscapes of the area.

Humboldt County, and Arcata in particular have a very unique vibe which is manifest in people’s personalities and forms of expression. Style here is unique as far as I can tell. It’s 100% anything goes, infact many of the common styles here are unknown outside of the region.

If you are interested follow my new Instagram @arcatafashionweek where I will be documenting the unique everyday fashion of Arcata, CA.


Stars Hamburgers, located near the Arcata bottoms, is said to be the inspiration for the Krusty Krab in the kids show SpongeBob Squarepants.  Steve Hillenburg, 52, the creator of the show attended Humboldt State in CA. Hillenburg majored in marine resources and his favorite place to catch a bite was the restaurant Stars. There is no coincidence of the restaurants resemblance to Bikini Bottoms renowned burger joint, the only mystery that still remains is the secret recipe.
