For the first time in my life, I stepped onto New York State soil. This photo was taken a few minutes later, after a short adventure on a wrong turn.
My friend Rob and I both stopped for quite some time to photograph and take in the beauty of the Falls. The American Falls are what you see in this shot. With over 50% (some say upwards of 60%) of it’s flow restricted, one can only imagine the power of the falls if mankind hadn’t intervened.

This photograph was taken while I was on tour with Warped Tour in 2010. I stopped in California for a few shows in late August and while in the area, I stayed with a relative who lives just a few blocks from the gorgeous sandy beaches of southern California.
Hermosa Beach is a tight-knit beach community in Torrance, California which is a suburb of Los Angeles. My favourite spot was the long boardwalk by the sea where I could whip out my roller skates and glide along the ocean. As much culture as Venice Beach may have, the quiet serenity of Hermosa in the early hours of the morning made me glad to be outside of one of the world’s largest cities, while being mere minutes from the opportunities in the city.
Although, I probably should have stopped roller skating to take this picture. My balance and poise kept me (and my camera) vertical, though!
