Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll.
San Francisco has become a new favorite destination of mine. Just this past November, right after I got back from tour, I made two separate trips to the city of free love. The first was a solo excursion where I met a handful of new friends and acquintances, went to a few shows and hung out with some new drinking buddies. One of whom catfished me the next morning when I got a phone call from his “wife,” however, the whole situation made for a much more entertaining getaway. The second weekend was much less dramatic, and much more creative, getting to bounce around town with Ashley eating boozey lunch and taking photos, our normal traveling routine. This shoot in particular is near and dear to my heart. As you may know I’ve been a Dead fan since I was 13, so photographing this Granted Sweater Company Jerry Garcia hand knit cardigan was a highlight of the weekend. Each one of these sweaters is designed in Richmond, BC and can take 20-25 hours to produce by hand. So much love and time put into each of the pieces which makes wearing this sweater always a special occasion.
Breaking out the 35 mm…
Literally the coziest Air Bnb we could have asked found for a rainy San Francisco weekend.
“Fare you well, fare you well, i love you more than words can tell,
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.”
