Dreaming Out Loud

Dang! It’s been almost a year since I last posted anything here. Better late than never, they say, right? So why, after all this time, am I posting now. Well, it turns out a friend of mine, known affectionately as the ‘Crusher of Dreams’, asked me about my website, so… here we are. It would not be right for her to check out the site and see an almost year old post, now would it? So, today’s post — aptly named, I think — is dedicated to the Crusher of Dreams. By the way, for those wondering, I shot and processed this with my iPhone 4S while down in Monterey, California, a wonderful place I and my family fell in love with.  I posted this shot over on Instagram as well, where you can find me @jacquesgude.

Soul Surfer

Surf’s up dude!!

So we’ve made our way down to the San Francisco Bay Area to do a little exploring.  Spending a few days hosted by a wonderful family at their beautiful house on Stinson Beach.  It’s just so peaceful and relaxing here, the smell of the sea and the crashing of the waves along the shore.  I went out early this morning to snag this shot of a surfer doing his thing.  I was experimenting a bit with long exposure to get a more painterly effect in the shot.  Also blend in some a nice blue texture to give it an almost canvas painting like look.  What do you all think?
