mila | [b] school day trips . laguna

i love the community energy behind the [b]school.  and i love joe photo for leading a bi-monthly day trip.  this month we walked around laguna beach.  got some art in, some beach air and chocolate covered strawberries.

visiting one of joe's buddies .. david tosti at his studio.

how many people can you fit in a phone booth?  2 studs.... [b]ecker and paul edwards.

matt looking like shaggy 

i'm a media raised child.  these are things that get my attention.

i'm intrigued by art that has a dark story to tell.

i HATE getting my picture taken!

if you wanna learn from a master, take a picture of his settings.

some people are awesome at thinking outside the box.  while the rest of us are lugging around pro and semi pro cameras complete w all our fav lenses, michelle yam captures art beautifully with an iphone.


  1. You rock Michelle! You actually love having your photo taken....
    I miss you. The next Day Trip is going to Joshua Tree:)
