Introducing My New California Photography Blog

by Ekua on February 28, 2011 in California,etcetera

Dear Readers,

Like many others with a zealous inclination towards peregrination, when I am at home, I try to find ways to maintain the traveling spirit that invigorates me when I am abroad. This involves road trips, weekend excursions, and seeking out new spots to visit in San Francisco and the rest of the Bay Area. I often bring my camera along with me.

Some of the photographs I take of my home state are my favorite. There’s something about shooting where you live that adds an extra layer of freedom to your photography; there’s no attachment to capturing typical postcard images.

But I often push aside sharing my pictures and stories about California on this site to focus on writing about the more far flung locations I experience. My neglected photos needed a separate place to shine. So a couple months ago, I had an idea to create a home for my more local photography; a blog with larger pictures and snippets of stories or maybe a quote. Instinctively, the title “Other Californias” seemed right.

I pondered creating a new blog as I’ve done twice before – once when I started travel blogging on wordpress.com and for a second time when I decided to take a step further and transfer it all this blog: Do I have time for this? What exactly will it be about? Who’s going to care?

Then, last week, I had a just do it moment. So I did it. And I’m excited to see how it will evolve. Please take a moment to check it out and subscribe. I also decided to create a Facebook page for Girl, Unstoppable, so while you’re at it, please “Like” my blog if you feel so inclined!

Happy viewing and reading,
Ekua
