Jack London State Park

This past Sunday my boyfriend, Westley (the pup!), and I scooted out of San Francisco and drove up to the Jack London State Park in Sonoma for a much needed warmer weather afternoon. There were errands to do in the city in the morning, and terrible traffic trying to get to/over the Golden Gate Bridge so we got there with only 2 hours to spare before the park closed. I took photos with my lomo but I haven't been having much luck with it lately. Two rolls wasted on dead batteries (including photos from this day) and then I forgot to change the ISO setting when I put a new roll of film in on Sunday - so I can't imagine any of those photos are going to come out well - but, we did take some digital photos!

It would have been a perfect two hours if it weren't for the little burrs all over the paths that got stuck all over Westley. I must have pulled at least 50 out of his fur on the car ride home!

Your pup is gorgeous, and he has the sweetest face. I love your dresses, and certainly this one. The oaks are the perfect scenery for it.

This is lovely ! Such an inspiring photoshoot. Made my day which is pretty dull in Paris. Gloomy weather for August here !

Yoshi said...

Beautiful photos... it's a shame about your bad luck with the other camera!
Also, I kept reading the first sentence as if Westley was your boyfriend. It took me a while to realise he was your dog! haha

Adorable dress. It looks like it simply floats rather than obsessively cling to your body.

Great photos. I was brought back to my elementary school days in the 60's when I was first introduced to
Jack London books. My favorite was
"Call of the Wild".

Rosie said...

Amazing locale. Serious hair envy right now...

You look so ethereal, truly out of this world in this earthy setting. :)
