Dispatches Ocean to Ocean

June 2, 2011

This past January I set out on a 3,600 mile journey across America.  I’ve never made the drive in one session (always LA to Chicago or Chicago to New York), so needless to say I was excited for the trip.  The route consisted of a straight shot to Nashville, then west to L.A., with a drive up the coast to our San Franciscan finish line.  The drive provided countless stories and hundreds of photos, although both pale in comparison to the real thing.  I managed to take almost 2,000 photos over the course of 13-states and six days on the road, and those captured through the lens of my iPhone surprisingly made the most lasting impression – at least to me.  These were some of my favorite shots, I hope you enjoy.
