Nautical Morning

Obviously, we’re back in Monterey with these March edits. I went out one morning and shot the boats from various angles in the Monterey Bay. I’ll be showing more off probably next week.

This is highly edited, but I love the final look. I layered two different Lightroom presets along with some other adjustments.

China Dragon

The Chinese heritage is big in Monterey.

I loved seeing this Chinese junk boat in the harbor. Now called China Dragon, it was christened the Sea Fox (do the Chinese christen their boats?) I wish I had gotten a better shot of how different it is from all the other boats. But you can see the difference with the white boat. A stand out!

I didn’t know the name of the boat or anything about it, but I knew there had to be something on the internet about it, since it’s the only junk boat in the harbor. And my search was fruitful. Click for more info:“Historical Chinese junk boat museum”

The Tuck Box in Carmel, California Not So SAHM

Quirky Carmel

We loved exploring Carmel. And now that we don’t live there anymore, I realize we didn’t explore it near enough. Must. get. back.

Every street promised neat little surprises like the Tuck Box. Fairy tale!
