I spent the afternoon of Day 2 in San Diego at a beach, sitting, sleeping, and writing things in the sand. Oh, how I would love to be on the beach right now! Jealous seemed like the correct word to write :) I first tried writing them with my toe, but the water kept beating me to it and washing the words away. So I walked and walked and walked looking for a big stick. And I couldn't find one anywhere! Then Justin suggested a lightstand - turns out camera equipment has multiple purposes!
It was perfect :)
And the working part of the day - corporate photos. Jeremy's business partner, Nate, flew in that morning so he could join us for photoshoot #2. Nate has spent the last year or so traveling around the country - a couple weeks here, a couple weeks there (California, Colorado, Utah, Florida and a few other places) and has finally settled back in San Diego with a permanent address. Most of the work they do is online anyway, or traveling to meet with clients in other states, so being able to move around without interrupting the business is pretty cool. I love the perspective both of these guys have on life and people, though. They make a huge effort to understand people and it shows in the relationships they have, even while not staying in one place for very long. You can still connect with people and make a difference. Everyone travels for different reasons, and I've loved the experiences I've been able to have traveling recently - new people, new places, new experiences. I've gone out of the state at least once every month since November, and this will continue for almost a whole year. I'm excited to see the connections I can make as this continues!
Nate and Jeremy run two businesses together, SpireWave and Mind Breakthrough. (The SpireWave website is about to be relaunched, but until then, you can read a little bit about it on Jeremy's website here)
I loved the view of this skyline with the water. For you photographers interested in the specs on this one below, I had one speedlight on my camera, two behind them for backlight, and one from the front right with a soft box. I used pocketwizards to trigger, and shot it at 1/15 sec, f/3.2, ISO 640. Most importantly, though, I called ahead to make sure they'd turn all the lights on for the office buildings in the background ;)
And I hopped in one at the end - thanks Justin for taking the picture!
