We moved from San Jose to Hollister. This is only 50 miles away but some of our favorite locations are now closer. Only San Francisco is 50 miles further away.
We want to talk about our local photo destinations because they are nice and also will show in many of our art and test photos. These are also all places we can visit if you plan to have 1:1 consulting session with us.
We plan to present some of these location im more detail.
Hollister (20 miles Southeast of Gilroy)
Hollister is both an agricultural center and a commuter town (for the Silicon Valley) with about 36,000 people.
Hollister Clock Tower
Hollister is famous for it's bike rallies at the 4th of July. A bike rally at that date in 1947 was the basis of the Marlon Brando movie "The Wild One". It is said that this movie defined what we call the "American Biker". We took some pictures this year.

Highway 25 (crosses Hollister)
Hollister is surrounded by very beautiful oak hills. Hwy 25 connects Hollister to the Pinnacles National Park. This highway has great sceneries.
San Juan is a very small town that feels like living history. San Juan has a mission and the only still existing Spanish Plaza in California (this is now a CA State Park). The Spanish Plaza is directly at the Mission.

Big Sur (50 - 130 miles from home)
Hwy 1 at Big Sur shows an amazing rugged coastline.
Big Sur Monoliths
Big Sur and Point Lobos provide enough photo opportunities for a lifetime. Be aware that sun and fog change all the time. It can be fog in the South while the north shows sun and vice versa. Here are some of our Big Sur pictures.
