Tierra Miguel

Our most recent Field Trip was to Tierra Miguel in Pauma Valley, CA.  Here we saw a 85-acre farm that specializes in growing organic produce.  To the date they have delivered 1,070.25 tons of their produce to schools and families in Southern California.  Other classes joined us on the trip as well.  While we took care of the photography and documenting, the other classes helped plant, harvest, and make salad for everyone at the end of the night.  I’ve never really spent much time on a farm so this was a new experience for me.  It was a beautiful day out and I’m happy with some of the shots I got.  I got a workout walking around the farm, trying to cover much ground as I could.  This trip was fun and it was nice to see and taste the finished product of the hard work that the people of the Tierra Miguel foundation put into the farm.  Here are some my favorite photos that I took that day.


Indian Rock

The field trip to we recently took to Indian Rock in Vista, CA was a really great experience.  We listened to stories about the history of the tribe and about the lives of the Luiseño elders.  There were other classes that attended as well and helped plant indigenous plants around the rock.  You could tell everyone was having a great time.  We were also lucky to have such great weather that day because just a day before and the day after the trip there was a storm.  I’m pretty happy with some of the pictures I captured.  This was also my first time using a light diffuser when I took photos.  At the day’s end we all had a potluck and stood next to a bonfire.  It was a great way to cap off the day.  Here are a few of my favorite images I took at Indian Rock.

Here’s the first image I’ll post for the new class I’m taking this semester.  I went on a trip to San Francisco over the weekend and here is one of my favorite images that I took.
