Carmel Up Close

I've mentioned this before, but I find that when you're in tourist mode--wandering aimlessly through a place and trying to find ways to preserve the experience on film (digital or otherwise)--it's often best to focus on small details or pictures of the scene. Unless you're there at the right time with the right equipment, it can be difficult to capture a magazine-worthy landscape of the scene. Much the same can be said for photowalks with friends or strangers.

But if you focus instead on "small landscapes" or details of the scene, it can often trigger an even better memory of the place by igniting your imagination to fill in what you can't see.

Here is one such take on Downtown Carmel.



  1. I love the "no sucking allowed // no public restrooms" sign. Too close to San Fran...

  2. oh, that's no smoking... nevermind.
