Darren and I studied abroad together in the Netherlands in the Fall and were in the same lower-div photo class last Spring. In the Netherlands, it was so easy to go out and explore because everything was is beautiful and different from things in the U.S. There were castles, a pancake shop in the middle of the woods, rustic countrysides, and sand dunes all within an hour bike ride. Darren and I decided a couple weeks ago that we would try to adventure here in Isla Vista to see what we could photograph. We walked around for an hour by the Devereux lagoon and were blown away by how pretty it can also be here in our backyard. Here are some of the photos we took. If there's anyone in the SB/IV area that wants to go out and adventure sometime, hit me up! I'm always looking for an excuse to take photos.
