As another weekend wraps and we vault into the work week ahead, the opportunity to hit the road seems like a world away. A little photographic escapism is just what the doctor ordered. Portland-based photographer Laura D'art has just the remedy in the form of this image log of a trip to the Oregon coast with her friends. Beautiful scenery, good food, and some local craft brews star. As Laura explains, travel and photography go hand-in-hand:
Even before I was a photographer, I was a traveler. From roadtrips across states, to backpacking Europe, to sailing in Greece, this was how and when I felt most myself. To me, the most beautiful things are when the senses are engaged; sights, sounds, and tastes that draw you in at every new destination. I enjoy the unexpected and often find myself intentionally getting lost just to discover what was down that country dirt road. It is this same sense of wonder that led me to the field of photography. Traveling with a camera heightened the experiences and allowed me to connect with the people and places I was discovering in a more intimate way. The inspiring souls I meet on this journey, fuel my desire to create.
