Definitely standing on the road. You are either really tall, or a really dedicated model train enthusiast.

hah I know, I should have posted earlier the last couple days, but I don't really care too much about getting king beard. Especially when somebody like Zackle puts up way cooler pictures (literally) hah. Pretty much, I just want to post awesome pictures.

I really don't know what's going on here, but it looks like magic. I like magic. I also like ponies with wings on their back that fly you to great places where they serve pie 24 ours a day. This kind of looks like one of those places.

Ace says:
Even I don't know where that is. Are you near bishops peak or something? its a lot greener than I thought it was.

Also, you're lucky that you have assistants to help you take your photos. Some of us don't have that luxury. I only have friends that don't call me back. :/

Barefoot says:
@vanbert, ok. so the sun was over to the left, I shot it underexposed so the sky would show up better, then I brought up the saturation a ton, and it created this split warmth look. Super random, and accidental.
SLO is where it is at, if any of you come through town, let me know and we can hang out, and go get lunch somewhere good.

Alright I'm on Johnson Avenue in San Louis Obispo/
And I'm five years old or six maybe.

This photo is more epic than John Darnielle's song in which he mentions your town.
