Are you on the lookout for a place to go hiking in Southern California? I suggest that you check out Eaton Canyon and you will definitely be rewarded with a great outdoor experience with lots of awesome opportunities to take photos.
Eaton Canyon is a natural area of land that offers great hiking trails and plenty of equally great photo ops. First, you have to drive to Pasadena, CA and park in the lot (it’s free) then you can check out the Nature Center to learn more about the area and check out all the displays.
From there you can head out to one of the trails. The most popular trail is the one that ends with a 50-foot waterfall. This trail features some gradual inclines along the way, but overall, it is not a bad hike.
You will encounter a river along the way and at some points you will even have to navigate your way over the river by carefully stepping on rocks to lead you to the other side.
This is a rewarding hike with beautiful scenery and a great way to get out of the city and just have a nice day surrounded by nature.
Unfortunately we did not get to see the waterfall on our first trip because it was getting too dark, but we will not miss the chance the second time around.
To prep for your trip, you will need to prepare some water and good shoes because it can get really hot during the summer months. Don’t worry about possible fees as the parking is free and so is the Nature Center.
Brazil is an awesome country for traveling. There's so much to explore, each place very different from one another. It will definitely take a stretch of trips just to get to know this this South American pearl. I finished my copa tour last year in Marajó, the island of bulls—it just might be an eternal highlight for me.

We recently had the great opportunity to interview our latest LomoAmigo, Tim Kerr. While his repertoire stretches back to the late 1970's and includes that of musician, artist, painter, photographer, skater and many other things, he just prefers Tim! We gave him a La Sardina DIY, which he not only added his own style to, but shot some excellent photos with as well. Rife with candid and thoughtful answers, we expect everyone will glean a nugget of wisdom and leave with a smile.

Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
