It has seemed like a conspiracy the last couple of days to keep me from sending you at least a few images of my six day pickup truck trip to the Mojave Desert for a photoshoot with Jody, the model from one of my most popular images, “Jody in the Desert,” then driving up the Eastern side of the Sierras, finding a way to finally cross over the mountains via the Kit Carson Pass, and now, on the threshold of moving into Yosemite early tomorrow morning. My most vivid impression so far has to do with the dramatic contrasts between the Eastern and Western sides of the Sierras, at exactly the same time in the calendar year. The Eastern side is dry and the colors are very muted, to the point that when you see even a little color, you are snapped into awareness. On the Western side, it is so different. Green is abundant, and everything seems so lush.
But there is no greater beauty in either. Here are about 10-12 images, with just a little commentary, to share with you my adventure so far. They will receive more fine tune editing later, but for now I wanted to share with you the flavor of this trip. Love, Frank.
A nap in my truck in the midst of paradise.
And tomorrow, Yosemite!!!
