A TYPICAL DAY OFF//BAY AREA'S BEST DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

To celebrate a very exciting, exhausting, and succesful first 1/6th of 2011, I decided to take Monday off, throw the dog in the car, throw a million cameras in the daypack, 3 types of film, snacks for me, snacks for dog, water for me, water for dog, doggie bowl, 27 layers for me, 1 layer for dog- and head to my favorite secret hide-out spot in the Bay Area. A chilly, brisk hike up a small mountain always helps clear my head. I love hiking where Pancake can be off-leash. The feeling of him following me, never worrying we'll be out of synch, makes me feel so connected to him. It's a wonderful feeling. I pulled out two of my favorite Polaroid cameras that have been collecting dust (a 600 model, and one of my many Spectras) and tried out the last of my very very very very expired Polaroid film. Unfortunately, it was all so old and dried that nothing really came out. So I resorted to Ye Olde iPhone 4 - which I love to hate- bc it's poladroid app (fake polaroids, for all you non-nerds out there) is actually pretty awesome.

There's always some amazing graffitti up here. It's like someone knew we were coming.

Perspective can be so exhilerating and beautiful.

This light got me so jazzed!! The iPhone doesn't really do it justice, but I was buzzing with photo-nerd excitement, juggling all 3 cameras to capture this dreamy winter shade.

DIARY OF PANCAKE//FINE ART DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

So, my dog has his own vlog (that's 'video log', in case my internet-savvy lingo was a little over your head). He makes me follow him around and take videos (he can't press the buttons because he doesn't have opposable thumbs. likely excuse.), and then he makes me upload them and edit them as he peers over my shoulder and makes sure I'm showing his good side. Gosh- he's so bossy sometimes! Anyway, his vlog is called Diary of Pancake, and it's better than cable. Here is Pancake's very first entry (where we go on a hike and take pictures. Because that's just what we do)

I MISS SUMMER // FINE ART DOG PHOTOGRAPHER JESSE FREIDIN

I miss summer. I miss blue skies and happy hot dogs and swimming holes and hikes and perfect Polaroid/Holga weather. Don't you? To encourage a little mind-slipping this dreary afternoon, here are some of my favorite images from last summer's expedition (read: vacation) to The Other Place, in Boonville. It was my first real vacation as an adult, and I honestly did not want to leave. It was magic. It was beautiful. It was warm and breezy and I had my camera up to my face the entire time.

Oh, and the dogs loved it, too.
