No Plan, No Problem
On October 1st, 2023, I ventured into Joshua Tree National Park with Ashley Bonetti and Billy Aumund. What set this trip apart was the lack of a concrete agenda. Our aimless wandering led us to scale some rocky terrain and achieve vantage points we hadn’t planned to visit.
The Lens of Perspective
I took my camera along, equipped with a tilt-shift lens. This particular lens gave me the ability to make the grand landscapes appear almost toy-like. The alteration in perspective pushed me creatively, presenting a different way to document a familiar environment.
Beyond capturing these images, the day proved to be restorative in more ways than one. The physical activity, fresh air, and sheer expanse of the desert landscape offered a break from routine that proved beneficial for both physical health and mental clarity.
Sometimes, stepping away from a structured schedule is what allows us to stumble upon unexpected experiences and vistas. If you’re finding yourself stuck in a rut or stressed out, consider giving yourself the freedom to explore without an agenda.
