SR-108 & Columns of the Giants Geologic Site (Part 1) - Stanislaus/Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest

On June 22nd, 2019, I took a day trip to the Stanislaus National Forest and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in California. I traveled to places along State Route 108. During June, there were still some snow on the mountains, which I got quite some photos of. I split the photos into 4 parts. I hope you enjoy the photos.

This is part 1 of my photos. All the photos today are from Stanislaus National Forest. Photos are from State Route 108 and Columns of the Giants Geologic Site.

Message From The Photographer: I know these photos are from very long time ago. If you have been following me on social media for a while, you'd know I've been dealing with vision loss (not completely blind) for over a year now. My photography work has been slowed down drastically. I hope you all can understand.

San Francisco Bay Trail - San Francisco, CA (Cellphone Shots)

On September 16th, 2019, I took a trip to the Presidio area of San Francisco, CA. I took a walk on the San Francisco Bay Trail and took a few cellphone photos. I hope you enjoy them.

Message From The Photographer: If you guys have been following me on social media, you'd know I've been dealing with vision impairment for over a year now. The conditions are neurological so I do have good days and bad days. Unfortunately this was a relatively bad day and my vision was really not playing along that day so I was not able to take many photos. I hope you enjoy the 4 photos I was able to take though.

Niles Canyon Stroll & Roll (Sept. 22nd, 2019) - Cellphone Shots

On September 22nd, 2019, I attended the 2019 Niles Canyon Stroll & Roll event where Niles Canyon Road, the part of State Route 84 traveling through Fremont, CA, Union City, CA, and Sunol, CA, is closed down for most of one day a year for bikers and pedestrians to travel on. I took photos on my cellphone and my Olympus mirrorless camera. This post is photos I shot on my cellphone. The photos from my mirrorless camera will come out later. I hope you enjoy these photos!

Parts: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | Cellphone Photos | 

These are the photos I took on my cellphone at the event.

Message From The Photographer: If you've been following me on social media, you'd know I've been dealing with vision impairment and gradual vision loss since August 2018. The conditions are neurological, so my vision isn't impaired the same amount on a daily basis, but overall it seems to be going down hill. It has slowed down and made taking photos, processing photos, using computers, etc... very challenging and somewhat depressing. Some days it is impossible for me to take photos or process them. I know these photos are from a very long time ago, but I'm only just starting to get around in processing them as I'm only able to work on them at a very slow pace. I hope you can understand, and I hope you enjoy these photos.
