This is one of the first trips that I’ve been on that I felt like my pictures were a good representation of what I did on the trip and not just a collection of pretty pictures. It also probably helped that Kevin doesn’t like having his picture taken, so there actually wasn’t anybody for me to take pictures of.
This is one of my goals for this year, try to capture the experience, not just the nouns. That’s what I’m going to call it, the nouns – the people, the places, the things. It really is incredible how you can capture all of those things and still not have a clue about what happened along the journey. (Kind of like what I believe happened with my India pictures, oops.)
My trip to Denver was actually an out of my comfort zone trip. That is the longest amount of time that I have spent with an introvert in a long time, which resulted in me spending a lot of time in my own head. It’s a scary place up there, but it allowed me more time to think about life, relationships, really good music, photo compositions, and what I want 2014 to look like. I guess maybe it was a good thing overall, huh?
Here’s the coffee shop we went to the first morning.
Meet Bo. He has more energy than any pup I’ve ever met.
These two wouldn’t leave me alone at all. Good thing they’re cute.
We went to see Railroad Earth at Twist and Shout.
I had a biscuit sandwich for breakfast that was buttermilk fried chicken, Tender Belly bacon, and cheddar cheese smothered in vegetarian gravy at The Biscuit Company. Probably should have taken a picture of that instead of my teacup.
Then we drove to Breckinridge while we were in food comas.
I spent $50 on greeting cards and art at the shop that this banner was in front of, oops. The shop was called Magic Scraps. I could have lived there.
We found Olive & Finch for breakfast on my last full day. It was delicious.
Then we wandered around downtown.
And on my last day we made it to the Botanic Garden.
Not too shabby for a 4-day trip, huh?
Now I just need to figure out what city I’m going to hit next. Any ideas?
