When I was in my late teens, my friend Jestoni and I would drive to the beach late at night and have donuts and coffee. Those were the days when you had no responsibilities and everything was up for grabs. We would take our guitars and on the lifeguard posts and attempt writing songs. Yet, no songs were written but maybe because we never really intended to write songs. Despite having acute bronchitis and acute laryngitis, Jessica, Jestoni, and I drove to Newport Beach anyway.
Jestoni brought his Ukelele with him and played a few songs that he wrote. For someone who was sick, he seemed well enough to sing beautifully. A dancer, choreographer, singer, and seasoned performer–he is now dabbling in photography and I just wanted to show him a few photography tips and tricks I’ve learned over this past year.
Sometimes, it’s nice to look back at the “good old days” even though you know they’re nothing but distant. Maybe we should drive to the beach more often for “coffee and chat.”
Here’s a few photos of Jestoni as I practiced my “street style” and “semi-portrait” photography. These photos were shot with the Olympus 25mm f/1.8 lens.
But due to the freezing cold, we couldn’t stay that long but it was a lot of fun regardless.

And now–we’re “adults” pre-occupied with “adult things” but it was still nice visiting a place we used to frequent. So, what did you like to do when you were younger? Did you have a hangout spot? Leave a comment below!
