Lure of the Pacific

A photo-essay by Debashish Samaddar

In the spring of 2008 my wife and I took a few short vacations. One of these was to the Pacific Coast of northern California. We flew there, stayed in a hotel, rented a car… the usual stuff whose details I no longer remember. But I do remember we drove down the Pacific Coast Highway and stopped a lot along the way. To see the ocean and its changing colors. To listen to the waves and the wind. To accept that my little pursuit of material things and “success” was insignificant.

Former nerd, technology burnout. Now I try to keep things simple and tactile–like film, and paper books. I used to paint. Sometimes I write poems. I photograph things and parent 2 small kids!
