IMPRESSIONS @ ILLEST LA

This coming Saturday May 9, illest Los Angeles once again transforms into an art space for the opening reception of Impressions: A Collection by Kenneth “KSOLE” Soleta. I wasn’t planning on curating an art show so quickly after BRANDALISM; I wanted to take a little break and nurture my role. But this one

Chasing Suns…

Sunrises and sunsets are every photographer’s dream window of time. It’s the golden hour: if you’re lucky, the sky is awash with stunning hues, sharp angles are dramatized in the best ways possible and 97.9% of subjects look angelic no matter what. Can you imagine if the magic of sunrises

Carlsbad Caverns

I didn’t instagram any images from Carlsbad Caverns ‘cuz… well… it’s really hard to shoot in a super dimly lit space with a cracked iPhone 5. Heck, my 5D images didn’t even turn out as well as I’d hoped (note to self/ readers: bring a tripod) but I think these give you

Prada, Marfa

Since opening in 2005, Prada Marfa has become a fashion ‘destination’ of sorts for all wanderlusters interested in making a pit-stop at one of the most random, iconic installations that have nothing to do with anything. You can read more about it at the Wiki page I linked, but it

The 6-Hour Wait For BBQ

Aside from its infamous brisket, Franklin’s in Austin is known for an obnoxiously long line. Like, long enough to have its own Twitter (@FranklinBBQLine) kinda long.

The 12th edition of Heaven on Wheels was a great season opener. The parking lot was packed and we have received the maximum number of cars. Almost 2000 cars showed up from different countries!

Be Easy, Big Easy

New Orleans is one of those cities that’s easy to fall in love with. From the culture to the people to the art to the music to the food – oh. my. god. the food(!!!) – every aspect of the city is charming and sweet and nostalgic in all the

What Do You Mean They Don’t Have Soup Dumplings Here?

I’ve got a slew of flicks from New Orleans, Austin, Marfa and Carlsbad, but this shot from White Sands was too good not to share immediately. The park is arguably one of the most beautiful, jaw-dropping places I’ve ever been in the entire world. More on this later, but let’s
