GoPro Outtakes: Assorted California Ride Photos

GoPro Outtakes: Assorted California Ride Photos

Over the last few days I’ve been cleaning stuff off of my MacBook. I have/had several folders worth of GoPro photo dumps that I never bothered to sift through and junk the chaff. Now, with gigs of space recovered, I’m left with a few outtakes.

California Outtakes

That’s Ed drag racing some cows on the Sonora Pass. They were really hoofin’ it.

I’m here all week, folks!

My GoPro snapped away as I stopped to take a picture of the winding road next 140 miles sign on CA 36 near Red Bluff. I’ve seen my actual photo around the internet quite a bit. I hate when it’s not credited back to my site, but thems the breaks here on the web.

BIGFOOT! Visiting my dude in Happy Camp, Ca.

I have no idea which grove of Redwoods these were. But, it doesn’t matter. I loved them all.

I stopped to take a picture of the Chloe street sign because that’s my daughter’s name. Wouldn’t you know it? Pinky out! 🙂

GoPro Photo-Mode Outtakes and Candids

GoPro Photo-Mode Outtakes and Candids

The GoPro in photo mode is really the gift that keeps on giving. I was just going through iPhoto on my Macbook Air – the computer that I drag around when traveling. There are often photos on it that I forget about.

I just stumbled across this one:

kenny wondering what i am talking about now

I love that Kenny looks like a teeny-tiny person and I look like a giant, even though he towers over me in real life.  Apparently I was a giant that made no sense whatsoever, judging by the look on his face.

You can file this one under ‘pinky out’. I had no idea that I did this weird pinky move until I started using the GoPro.

Considering there is absolutely NOTHING but bright blue sky, I have no idea what I was pointing at in this picture. Maybe I was trying the ole “OMG, it’s Bigfoot!… made ya look” on Kenny?

 Then are those time when you capture… moving on…

Sometimes the unfortunate innards of a bug will ruin what could have been a lovely photo.

The same can be said for a poorly placed rain drops or fog on the lens.

But my favorite GoPro candids are the ones that capture a view that you might not have otherwise stopped for. When you find those gems on the memory card, it makes it all worth it.
