California road trip

off to surf

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I drove down to California to visit family. I took a lot of pictures out of the window of a moving car, as so often seems to happen when we’re in a hurry, but I did get to wander the beach and wharf at Capitola, near Santa Cruz. I also spent some time playing with my new camera phone, and discovered that while it’s perfectly capable of taking crap pictures, it’s possible to get some quite good results. Here are some of my favorite shots from the trip – some from my Pentax, some from the phone.
