These are some photos from my recent trips to the West Coast - places or people that have evoked emotion for me.

You can find yourself in other places - in other people. The West Coast did that for me. It brought me to the brink of who I've always wanted to be, just moments before I had to leave. Now, I'm 3000 miles away from a person I care about and a life I could have - I'm wondering how something that came with such bad timing can feel so right. But, the film relieves a little bit of that pain. Because for a moment, I can be back again. I can stare at that photo and revel in it. I can be me. I think that's why I take photos. They're all my own pieces of paradise.
