Road Tripping

In Film, Inspiration

To celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary, Andy and I took an epic road trip through the Pacific North West. We traveled 2,998 miles with 13 cameras and shot 28 rolls of film. I love getting the pictures back and seeing the similarities and the differences between our photographs.

Road trips are a fantastic opportunity to take the car out. Both of us love driving to new places, but it is no secret that a lot of planning goes into getting your car ready for an adventure!

For example, alongside packing plenty of clothes, groceries, books, and other bits and pieces, it is crucial that you make sure that your car is insured! We recently renewed our car insurance after checking out a few car insurance quotes on a comparison website online.

Above all, it is amazing how much money you can save on your car insurance by shopping around these days so if your car insurance is due for renewal, I would strongly recommend comparing deals from a few different insurers.

Anyway, the following photos are some examples of the juxtaposition that happens when we are together. Andy has put his pictures on the left and mine are on the right.

Sometimes he finds the impressive lines and shadows in the architecture and I find the impressive specimen in the shadows.

Sometimes he is looking up to the sky at rainbows and I am on the ground finding forgotten pinecones.

We always love to catch the one another shooting.

Sometimes we see things in a similar way.

Sometimes he sees the shadow and I see the tree.

I hope our journeys never end and that we never run out of film.

  1. Yay! Love that you are a part of this group!

  2. I love sharing photography with my partner – taking our cameras out, shooting the same places and things, switching cameras between us, and comparing shots when we’re done. I am fascinated by the differences, and the glimpse into the way he sees things. And the sometimes striking similarities makes me smile. It was lovely to see your shots posted together in this way – thanks for sharing!

  3. I really admire how the two of you shoot together, you will grow old together and always have this creative common thread. How beautiful to be married to your best friend who also loves what you love. Such a gift and I love how you both see things differently and sometimes the same. Both such amazing artists. And I’m so lucky I have been able to walk with both of you and learn a thing or two from you guys.
