Exploring Sutro Baths

I realized early on that I had a fascination with photography. But it wasn’t until after college that I finally took a class. At first I was shy about putting the camera where my instincts guided me. Does it look weird that I’m photographing this object in this way? Is it odd that I like to shoot into the sun? And slowly I began peeling away the layers of insecurities, until I found myself simply shooting with abandon and not with thoughts. And boy did it feel good.

I’ve found that one of my favorite things to do is exploring abandoned buildings and structures. Today I made a visit to the Sutro Baths and examined the textures of the cement walls. After a week of rain, I was lucky to make the trip wet-free and even capture the beautiful sunset.

  1. Thank you for inspiring my own creative inner-child to regain confidence to explore the unknown. Becoming real again with new experiences that are forged from spontaneous excursions of every day living.

    • Thank you for the lovely comment, Jodee. While it is scary to explore the unknown, it can be even scarier to surrender ourselves to our inner child. I wish you growth and fun on your new adventures!
